“Great trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

Really good trip, Darrell found the fish and was really friendly. We had only a few hours available for fishing and we missed the bite times but we caught plenty of good fish. Everything was provided, totally stress free and the boat is awesome! ended up in the middle of some workups, seeing the dolphins and diving gannets was a bonus. Perfect charter for a small to medium group and really flexible to whatever you want to do.

What an awesome group to go out with. I thoroughly enjoyed the company of this very highly educated and professional group as well. Thanks for your kind review , it makes me endeavour even harder to make my charter trips even more friendly and exciting. It was indeed a great day and we had a nice catch of some very good snapper. Thanks again and will look forward to seeing you again ! Regards

“Great day out in the Barrier”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

Thanks Darell for the great day out at sea for our important visitors. The team thoroughly enjoyed the trip with many catches to top the day off. The speed of your boat provided some great excitement for the visitors whom have never been out on the ocean before.
Great host and very helpful in all aspects. I would advise checking the rods prior handling them to amatures though but all in all, would definitely recommend for anyone wanting a combination of relaxing and exciting fishing trip!

“Awesum experience next time with banana skins lol”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

i went out on the Legasea 20/10/12 and wow my first time fishing and WHAT AN EXPERIENCE!!!! my partner and i had the best time on the legasea, with our skipper Darrell and with all our fishing friends. Would do it again.....and "hell yes Darrell i want to try it with Banana Skins next time" hahahahaha. The weather was perfect, and took home all of what i caught. My partner caught less than me, i guess it was beginners luck :) but if it wasnt for Darell being the best and only skipper i have dealt and making it a fun day out. Would do it again. Honestly cant wait for the next trip and for sure we will want to do again with Megabites woohoo roll on the next fishing trip :)

“What an awesome day on the water”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

Great gear, great boat, great skipper, great fishing spots and heaps of bait provided. Darrell put us right over the fish, and it wasn't long until they were biting like mad. We all pretty much caught our quota for the day. If you want a fishing trip that doesn't entail an over-crowded boat, and where you get personal assistance from the skipper, then Megabytes is the one. There were only 6 of us out today, but the boat can comfortably take 8, and that is the maximum that Darrell takes out. Highly recommended.
