Our family had the best day out on the boat with Henore and Patrick. The biggest highlight was snorkeling with heaps of turtles and beautiful fish. We can’t wait to come out again next time! Thanks

Successful day on the water. Caught 3 mahi and encountered some ocean wildlife (whales AND dolphins)! Captain Henore is very knowledgeable and friendly. I'm not the best swimmer and he gave me reassurance and confidence that I'd be safe.
