This was a very poor experience - poor fishing, poor food - insufficient chairs and water for the people on the trip and basically a bit of a rip-off. Do not waste your money trying it out. If you want all the details please read on.

We booked the fishing and evening squid fishing trip - cost $17 each. Picked up on time at 4pm which was good - after that it went downhill. Boarded boat but insufficient chairs for everyone to sit on. Sailed for about 20 mins then asked to come downstairs to start fishing - we were given a reel with a line, hook and small amount of bait and told to drop it over the side - it was the sort of thing that young children use to fish with. Over the course of the next 50 mins we caught about 10 fish between the 10 of us - each fish was about 10 cm in length - this was to be the main part of our BBQ supper!! We were then told to go back on deck to watch the sunset (unfortunately a bit cloudy so a bit of a non-event). About 6pm we came downstairs again to start squid fishing - this was a different reel with line on and a different hook. We were told to drop it over the side and 'jiggy jiggy' it until a squid went for it. Which basically meant pull the line up and down a bit repeatedly. Needless to say despite much 'jiggy jiggy' no one caught a single squid and after 10-15 mins of jigging a line overboard everyone looked bored. The whole fishing experience was something that young children may have enjoyed but not 10 adults - it was an utter waste of time.

Then the 'special BBQ dinner was served - it consisted of the fish we had caught - hardly enough to feed 2 people let alone 10, a few large shrimp/prawns, some morning glory and a bowl of what looked like liquid porridge - which looked and tasted awful. It was really not enough to feed everyone and would not in anyone's book be considered a special BBQ - which is how it is advertised. Beers and soft drinks were expensive compared to normal but most people did get a small bottle of water each - unfortunately not enough for everyone to have one!!
At about 7.45 we were asked if we wanted to go back early and everyone said yes - we were back on dry land by 8.15 - so the trip was 45 minutes shorter than it should have been and I can't imagine how they could have filled in the extra time.
All in all a real waste of time and money - my husband and I have this as the low point of our month in Vietnam.
