    Good Day,
    Mr & Mrs Parker and there two sons are booked to stay at the Anantara Resort from the 22nd April -29thApril.
    We would like to inquire and give him a 50th Birthday present, to give him and his boys a fishing expierence.
    Chad is 14 and Michael is 10. They have fishing before in Mauritius, and loved it.
    Please would you give us a quote for them to go out for half day ? Your Vamizi 31ft Gulfcraft could be the perfect boat for them? Please would you advise us if you have any other ideas?
    Thanking you,
