We went on a trip with Dorado, and my son cought a nice skipjack tuna. A very fine boat and ok food. We went on another private charter also, where we paid half the amount, and the fishing gear was just as nice, but a bit smaller boat, so I will proberly do that next time. I missed english speaking... More

Trying to plan a fishing trip over the net is a daunting task, especially when it takes 2 days to get a reply from an email. This wans't the case here with Eke. In some cases I was almost chatting on line. With tentative bookings made with 2 other operators, both cheaper (but not by much), the Dorado just looked... More

After reading reviews on this activity, a booking was made for 6 of us to go fishing. All of us are quite experienced fisherman at home and so thought it would be something different but unfortunately we only trawled for fish, which did not produce much. There is a lot of rubbish in the water which is off putting .... More

You are absolutely right about rubbish on the sea. That is a problem in these waters :(( What comes to catching fish, sometimes you catch, sometimes you dont. That is why it is called fishing, not catching ;)) Australia is one of the best places in the world when it comes to fishing - it is really hard to beat... More

My family of 4 (three adults, one teenager) have just spent a fantastic day game fishing with Eke and his crew on Dorado. The service was excellent. Eke responds to email enquiries almost immediately. We were picked up from our accomodation by taxi and driven straight to Chalong pier where we boarded DORADO. Food and drinks were provided throughout the... More

Well, let me start with a curios experience: While staying at the Hilton Arcadia Phuket ( great hotel and staff - just to recomend) we wanted to go fishing. The offering was targeted to `group fishing`, where you never know what you can expect. So, we went to the internet and found this crazy Finnish guy, offering a great boat... More

Our group of 6 chartered "Dorado" after a friend strongly recommended to try game fishing while on holidays. Only 2 of us were keen fishermen, the other 4 had never sat in a game fishing chair and pulled in a big one. So ok, we had done lots of other good things we decided to give it a go. The... More

Scheduling was simple. I sent an email in from to the website and received a response from Phil right away. Phil picked up the three of us the day of the charter and drove us to Chalong pier. From there the boat was docked right at the pier. It is an awesome boat. It’s about 62 feet, can sleep 6,... More
