As a woman a tad frightened of the sea, I was petrified to say the least... Well, there was absolutely no need... I was a little choppy on the way out but nothing like clinging on to my husband to help ease the nerves.. Once out there was fine.. LOVED the fishing which I had never done before... My husband...

I went on Mills Charter thinking I was in for a fun day of fishing. Instead they were late, no safety induction and the worst customer service I have ever experienced. No fish were caught, food was all mixed together so meats were contaminated as well as smoking being allowed wherever on the boat. When I complained I was treated... More

What a great boat, we were taken deep offshore, to fish at over 100 meters plus, the gear and bait were spot on. There was a mixed bag of fisherman from old hands to first timers, they and myself were made very welcome on board by the crew. After a good day's sport with fish mixed capture of fish, both...
