We never paid much attention to testimonials on websites for fairly obvious reasons, but were told we just had to have a 'testimonials' page, so here's a selection! Our Facebook site also has several reviews, or just ask around the tackle stores in Tauranga.

"We thank you so much for an unforgettable day! You were so wonderful and patient with us beginners. The kids are talking about their day on the water all the time and we sure have been enjoying delicious fish for dinner"

Cornelia & family (Germany)

"G'day Tony. we just made it home in one peice and all but myself slept the entire way. Thanks again for a fantastic day, thoroughly enjoyed it, even though I can't walk or lift a pen today! The tale of that one that got away seems to get more wild each time I tell it!"

Mick (Nerang, Australia) 

"Tony, thanks for a magical day of fishing yesterday. It was one of my best 'Birthday Days' ever! After filleting all the fish we took some over to 'Snappers' and they cooked some awesome fish and chips for my birthday supper. Thanks so much."

Pat & Dave (Canada) 

"Boys couldnt stop talking about their day out fishing with you all night. They reckon you're a top bloke! So, thanks you for making my son's 21st one he won't forget. I filleted all but 6 of the fish that night and 35 guests were treated to a huge feed of fresh fish in the evening. Photos attached as promised though have just noticed a certain persons 'brown eye' that you wont want to use!!!!"

Kevin (Tauranga)  

"Thanks very much for the fishing trip, I literally had the time of my life"

Aiden (South Australia)

"Still have a huge grin on my face at the size of that kingfish. Tucked up in bed by 10 absolutly knackered. Thanks for a cracking birthday - couldn't have asked for more."

Howard (Tauranga)

"You go way beyond what expectation were. You were absolutly brilliant and we have raved about you and our charter with you to anyone who will listen!"

Paul & Rachel (Auckland)

"Thanks for taking us all out on your boat last week, it was the highlight of our holiday and everyone had a ball. Back in the UK now, cold wet and dark - but the photos you emailed have brought back great memories. Thanks Tony"

Nikki and family (Oxford, UK)

"This is just to say how special the day was on Matakana island where you took us on the 30th. Your efforts to ensure the family had a great time was hugely appreciated - as was the evening fishing expedition - and the fish too!"

Claudia and extended family (Wellington)
