First of all I have to say Jamaica is a great place to travel. The people are great and there are so many activities to experience. We booked our fishing trip though a larger service and that led to a confirmation voucher pointing us to Island Dog Water Sports and Speedy (Shalton Whyte). I asked a few of the locals if they new Speedy and everyone knows Speedy and he has a great reputation.
When we met Speedy his reputation was quickly confirmed. He's got great energy and is eager to please. His experience is also obvious. This was helpful when the trip needed to be postponed due to clearly bad weather. He did everything he could to find us a new time in our last 2 days to get the fishing adventure squeezed in. I mentioned that if we went on a certain day we would have to be back by 1:00 to make a horseback riding event we had planned for my 20 your old daughter’s birthday. Long story short Speedy texted me the day before the fishing trip asking my daughter's name. Sure enough we showed up for the fishing trip and he had a birthday cake with her name on it as a surprise. He later provided a tip on a great restaurant and got us into Toscanini for a fabulous birthday dinner.
So about the fishing, we're not experienced deep sea fishing people. This was a first. The crew was very experienced and took extra time to explain what was going on and allowing us to help as we desired. About an hour in we hit on a 250 pound Blue Marlin. It jumped out of the water just like on TV. We pulled in the lines and let my daughter pull in the fish. Unfortunately it snapped the line and got away but the experience will never be forgotten. Speedy is a definite strong recommendation.
