I think if you pay a little bit more, they will even strap a little yft on each of you're arms and legs! Pretty cool swiming with those gentle giants!I forgot the name of the boat. But they have a drawing and the lucky angler gets a rope tied to his leg and he /she is lowered into the water usaully after they gaff a tuna so there is more blood in the water. It attracts great whites quickly with the splashing of the lucky angler. No cage onboard leaves more fishing and viewing space at the rail. They keep the rope close to the boat. Call the landings to find out which boat this is.
I booked an October 2019 trip on the Horizon with my wife and another couple, I was wondering if I could fish. Glad I found this thread.I used to work on the Horizon and we would fish the whole time....on the way down and at the Island...once at the Island we pretty much never landed a fish as the GWS ate almost everything. Since then they banned all fishing gear on the trips...similar to those Ecology Trips...no fishing allowed! The Horizon has since even removed the bait tank....lame....but yeah its diving or nothing.
The Horizon used to do dive / fishing combo's off of Benitos and Cedros...those were flat out rad! With those Islands closed down now I am not sure if they do similar coast trips or what? Spearfishing and tossing the iron for Yellowtail and WSB was flat out awesome!
