Booked this trip through Steve through a few emails and texts. All handled very well and efficiently. I chose to drive to Chalong rather than get the pick up but the rest of the party turned up right on time.
The girls in the office were very efficient. Coffe on arrival and the simple form was easy to complete. Morion sickness tablets are available at the office which wasva nice touch.
We had a small group (5) and the fishing guide spoke a little English which was good. No hassle getting along the pier and onto the boat. Lotsvos soft drinks and water available and you could buy beer at the office prior to getting on the boat at a reasonable price.
We started fishing about 45 mins after leaving the pier. Six lines out very efficient. The motion sickness tablets came in handy as it was a little rough but nothing too drastic. The boat decks are a little slippery when wet but lots of handrails to hang on to.
The catch was ok. One Dolphin Fish, a few skipjack and some yellow tails. The other boat got a sail fish of about 20kg. Could always do with more fish but that's why its called fishing and not catching.
Only one very small moan is that I booked this as a fishing trip. I didnt realise we would stop for an hours swimming and snorkelling at lunch so I didnt take any togs! This was not an issue and if I had really wanted to swim I could have gone in in my shorts.
Great lunch eating some of the fish caught. It was also great to watch the fishing guide making sail fish lures from the belly flaps of the tuna.
Sorry cant recall the guides name but he did a great job. Well done Steve, great day and I will definately book again next time we are in Phuket.
