We had a great trip with Mark - we could see the real professional at work. Mark gave us possibility to catch a real shark and see how you „chip” it. His boat is a real fishing boat and not some kind of turist attraction...More

Mark and his first mate, Ryan were fantastic. It was an extremely slow day but they made out trip worth while. We landed a massive sail fish as we were picking up the lines that made it fully worth it!

I had a great time. Captain Mark made sure of it. Great mates as well. We laughed and joked, but when it was time to fish. It was all business and I couldn’t be happier.
