Everything went smoothly all the way from the reservation until we came back to dock. The captain was very knowledgeable, and the first mate was always making sure the lines were not tangle. They made a point to talk to all passengers and celebrate every time somebody was catching fish. Overall, was a great experience. I strongly recommended.

Der Ausflug hat sehr viel Spaß gemacht und ist etwas für jeden, der gerne auf dem Meer ist. Man sollte sich keine Gedanken darum machen, ob man was fängt. Wir waren bei ungünstigen Wetter und zu ungünstiger Zeit draußen und jeder hat etwas gefangen zwischen 3 und 6 kg

Jeg kona og guttungen på 10 måneder skulle besøke Lofoten for første gang. Kjørte bil fra Vinstra i Gudbrandsdalen 120 mil en vei. Så fiske måtte jeg ut på. Kona insisterte på å kjøpe tur før ankomst Svolvær. Vi fant firma på Google. Det var en fantastisk opplevelse. Hjelpsomme mennesker. Spesielt Geir som eier dette. Min navnebror Geir. Verdens hyggeligste mann. Blid og snill. Masse gode historier å fortelle. Han tar vare på alle. Vi tok masse fisk. Jeg fikk nærmere 10 stykker. 2 torsk på en gang. Den største veide 7 blanke kilo den andre 4 til 5 kilo. Jeg kunne ikke vært mer fornøyd. Skuta er 100 år gammel. Skipperen er kjent. 5 stykker ble satt i land etter en time da de ble sjø syke. La til 30 minutter ekstra med tid. Skal jeg tilbake så kommer jeg garantert til å kjøpe tur med dette selskapet en gang til. Verdt pengene. Lofoten er fisking. Lykke til.
