It was 5 star all the way. Darryl is an experienced guide (been on many fishing charters around the world). He just knew what he was doing. Thanks Darryl for the great day; sharing your knowledge and experience and magically conversations.

As a local I've been on charter with Darryl a few times. There has always been fish on the boat, he is a great guide and always has a good joke to share and full of local knowledge.
