Half Day Trip (PM)
It was a great experience Alex is a really cool guy and very knowledgeable. Not only did we have a great time catching some delicious fish(that Alex cleaned on the spot when we got back)When we were fishing in the shallows some dolphins came up to our boat and swam around us close enough to touch. It was an amazing experience and would 100% recommend him to anyone.
