We will fillet whatever you would like to eat and you can have it prepared here on island.Keep all the fish you wish with Ocean Surfari. • Does Ocean Surfari have any age restrictions for guests?We do not have any age restrictions for our guests. Children of any age are welcome but we do suggest inshore fishing for young kids as the seas are calmer and usually more action. In general 5 years and older do very well. • How likely is it that we will catch something?It is VERY rare that one of Ocean Surfari’s boats completely strike out. I know of only two occasions in the last 8 years when this has happened and both trips were targeting blue marlin exclusively. As long as guests are willing to listen to our advise regarding best fishing options, we will make sure everyone catches at least one fish and usually much more. ##Additional Information Crew gratuities are appreciated.
