We were really looking forward to this trip. My son had never deep sea fished and as an avid fisherman, he was amped.
To begin, neither the first mate or the captain of the boat spoke a word of English. It's really hard to communicate at all when they understand little and even then, don't interact. I did not find the first mate (no idea on the name) to be overly active on the boat with switching bait, etc. He wasn't lazy, but was not really moving like I think they should. The only thing he really said was "no hungry" when speaking about the fish. The captain said zilch. We tipped them $30.00 for the effort....and we are not cheap folks typically.
I spoke to another boat that was out on our day and they caught four marlin and six dorado. We caught one single dorado. Not impressed.
We bought an all inclusive which had food and drinks included. The drinks were plentiful, even if they were stored in what smelled like a fish cooler. The food was a joke. We selected five Mexican lunches and two fried chicken lunches. What we got was four COLD taco lunches, zero fried chicken lunches and three lunches with egg burritos in them, also cold.
Sorry Dave, but never again. The couple hundred less that you charge simply is not worth the experience.
THE CLINCHER: we were walking through the marina the following day and passed the first mate. HE SNORTED AT US. Like a pig....or that he thought we were pigs....ridiculous.
