It is the faulty towers of fishing without the comedy. A more glacial welcome would only happen in the mortuary slab !! Throughout the 4h trip paid in cash only get shouted at as lines crossed. They made us fish at 50cm from each other. A complete rip off and waste of time with very unfriendly skipper and hand. Please do not fall into the same trap

Great trip and very friendly crew who were very attentive to the younger members of the trip - superb and good job! We caught 50 fish in 2 hrs (although Joe Raff didn’t get one!) Thank you Paul

Booked for two hour Family trip paid around 175 euro for 7 of us ages ranged from 79 year old, 15 year old, 12 year old and 6 year old with parents in our 40's. Trip started well however very arrogant two man crew, did not make any effort to speak until out to sea then tried to be humourous while setting a load of very strick rules about how much to bring line in while fishing ( never had this on previous trips). Once young children started catching mackerel and forgot some of rules the two crew became extremely aggressive and rude. Children became scared of crew and stopped enjoying fishing. I have done this type of trip all around the world for example America, Europe, Africa and have never had such a bad experience. My advise would be AVOID at all costs if you have young children and elderly parents who may not be able to follow the very strict rules immediately. We caught Mackerel but that does not make up for the rude unprofessional crew who completely spoilt this experience. Book at your own risk!!!

I had a very enjoyable experience with plenty of fish caught. Enjoyed my fishing and was a good morning. However the only negative(not very negative just a small thing) is the captain appears to be a bit of a know it all and develops a bit of an attitude if you are doing something wrong somewhere. I wouldn’t mind it much but I was made seem like I didn’t know anything about fishing even though I am an avid angler, to be fair I’m used of freshwater fishing in lakes in Ireland. Not to worry as it was a great trip, would give it 5 stars otherwise.

Lovely first time fishing with Miguel!! However we paid 25€ each for 2 adults (plus fishing license 10€) and 2 children aged 8 and 6 who weren’t allowed to hold their own rods - same price as adults. My 6 year old didn’t do anything other than watch and I had to assist my 8 year old on my rod. I do think if you can’t hold a rod the prices should be lower as it doesn’t seem fair. Also the only fish you will catch is mackerel nothing else. Something that we weren’t told unfortunately. We were hoping for something nice to cook for lunch! Nice trip but expensive for family of 4 (120€)
