This company needs to shut shop. It wasn't just awlful, it was dangerous. The day was choppy, people were sick everywhere, the staff gave no empathy what's so ever. When asked if they could stop the boat or even slow down a little the responce was 'No,No, we no stop" . Meanwhile a guy has been sick and stuck in... More

We are just back from our 5th or 6th trip with these folks over the past couple of years, and it was another great trip. Looked like we might get off to a quick start this morning when a sailfish popped one of the outriggers, but he wasn't quite hungry enough. Slow going after that, and for all the other... More

Have had 2 experiences with this company, first they forgot to collect us at a Patong hotel, the agent drove us to the wharf in his own car. The second attempt was on October 19th. Once again failing to send the minibus we phoned them to be advised that as the weather was bad they had cancelled. We made our... More

Hi all, we checked this page before booking with them. We wanted to trust Mark P as he said "WOW! today just may have been the best day of my life.". Damn! Or this account is fake, or ... This company, the day, the food, the fishing was disapointing. But I won't criticize or shout at them. I will just... More

Firstly we arrived at the boat on time which in Thailand seems to be a bonus! There were 10 of us and we all noticed only 5 rods available for trolling which instantly showed we would be Sharing rods and as I went on my own, this was not good news. You are not told this when you book. The... More

Right off the bat they arrived 15 minutes late to our hotel. We ended up arriving at the boat nearly an hour late. Maybe they need to review their times there. Then they crammed 12 people plus 2 staff onto the boat. We physically fit up not terribly comfortably. There wasn't enough rods or reels for this amount of people.... More

Skipper and first mate friendly enough, boat in good condition but when 11 people pay $110 each and only one gets to feel a fishing rod for the whole day to catch one fish and not actually the set advertised program it was disappointing. The only fish caught was a 40cm tuna! Skipper should have a diary knowledge of dates,... More
