Couldn’t have asked for anything more

If it was easy it would be called catching. We had a ball and a trip we will never
forget and even though the fishing was tough we all landed nice fish and we
managed 2 meteries and one Barra that got away which would have been huge a
94cm and some smaller ones.

And both guides worked extra hard to land us fish and we got quite a few good
Threadies to eat. We came home with a heap of fish to eat and smiles on our

The crew of the sundancer were unreal and provided us with everything we needed. Gabbi nailed the food every time and Dave was an awesome Captain.

Would be happy to recommend your company to anyone that asks about our trip.
