Catching a Salmon

The deck hand was helpful and very knowledgeable of his duties went with 3 of my friends and they all agree and at this time we plan of doing this again real soon

They knew where the fishes were and everyone on the boat was catching fish. We all had a great time.

The whales were amazing!

The email didn't explain how to redeem the voucher so I had a ton of issues at the counter. I even had trouble downloading the travel zoo app, but had no idea I could have done that to speed the process. I literally spent an hour trying to figure it out. A quick note on the travel zoo email about the app would have been a life saver.

The boat was ok. Medium sized group so want too crowded.

They did not talk at all about the marine life or the bay. Just drove us silently out. Pointed at a couple whales and drove us silently back. We have been on other tours that cost less and were way more interactive.

It was listed as a rock cod fishing trip but we fished for mackerel and sand dabs. Both mackerel and sand dabs are gross fish to eat. We were not told about the fish change until on the boat. Staff was also very rude and doesn't like her job at 6am.
