The captain Tony is an entertainer! He made sure that all customers were having fun and made funny jokes often during the tour. The mud crab was amazing and I fell in love with the rich taste. While the lunch was cooked, we were fishing and managed to catch a GT and Tony made sashimi out of it which was fresh and delicious as well. I definitely recommend this tour to friends and family!
