Testimonial

This was my first visit to the marina as a game fisherman. The marina of course is excellent but it was the friendliness of the staff that impressed me the most. I loved the complimentary coffees and newspapers in the mornings and the afternoon cocktails (sadly missed out on a few because I was out fishing). I also enjoyed the complimentary 5am cooked breakfasts especially cooked for the game fish comp by the marina staff.
