I never review anything as we are not the type to complain, but for what we spent on this trip I had to reply to you. Last year we did your kayak tour which was good so after searching various companies we thought we'd also try your shark fishing trip. Your guide was friendly enough but unless you asked a question, you'd get little in the way of conversation, information nor assistance. Of the 3 hrs, we spent probably and 45 minutes riding around looking for baitfish. When it came time to fish, although there were 4 of us only 3 poles were set out and we were like school children as it seemed we weren't allowed to cast or bait anything. The one "large" shark we hooked your guide reeled it in to the boat and then handed the rod to my son to essentially boat the fish so the thrill of the fight was not enjoyed. He spent his idle time on his cell phone. I suspect we used maybe only a handful of the baitfish and if he used many for chum you couldn't tell. We may be wrong, but we felt he used "our time" to catch baitfish also for his 2 additional trips later that day. Anyway, we all sat there rather quietly for a little over hour staring at our rods and wondered if we'd get to try another spot since we'd stopped in 5 spots trying to find baitfish. Then the captain shouted "5 minutes" meaning we had to pull anchor and return. We caught a few small sharks but for almost $400 we were very disappointed in the trip and from reviews of other shark tour companies, our trip paled in caparison to the trips provided by many other local companies. It's not really the number of fish but the poor experience of it all. My wife even asked the guide if his company had other guides but he said he was the only one trained to do so and had to do them all which seemed to be more like a chore to him then pleasing his guests. I asked him if it was his boat and he inferred that he glad it wasn't making us feel like we got stuck on an old fishing boat. Thank goodness we saw a few dolphins which helped save the day. I did provide your guide with a tip as I felt it should be done as a common courtesy.
