Five of us had a great day shark fishing with Chris and Geoff. They clearly understand sharks and the waters, 4 Blues and one Porbeagle landed so everyone caught.

Great morning's trip with Chris and Jeff - they were patient with the kids and kept us all entertained as well as helping us pick up about 70 mackerel! Wouldn't hesitate to recommend and was a true holiday highlight.
