  • On September 7, 2019 we (4 friends – partly experienced anglers) booked a fishing trip in Palma de Mallorca at Pescaturismo. The 4-hour tour I started with three friends on the "Hermanos Gonzalez" with Captain Antonio Gonzalez did not correspond in any way to the descriptions on the website of the organizer. At first, there was no security briefing before leaving the port. This was certainly due to the fact that neither the captain nor his assistant spoke English or German, although the website advertises with the extensive language skills of the captain. The journey out of the harbour was so slow that we reached the first place for fishing only after about an hour. The equipment we were supposed to fish with was rusty, outdated and completely unsuitable for the touted fish. The hooks and baits were so tiny that you could catch only the smallest fish. After less than 5 minutes we should catch up with the fishing. Afterwards, two tow lines (Fluxa) were issued, but they were not really used because the attached baits were far too light to sink below the surface of the water. For over an hour we sat on Antonio's boat and tried to get tiny tin pilkers underwater while Antonio (on the phone) drove several eights. After a total of about three hours and several requests, he stopped the boat and told us to throw out the fishing again. After about twenty minutes, the end of the fishing season was announced and the journey towards the port began. We were promised a fishing trip. The pure fishing time with fishing (rod & roll) was less than 30 minutes. The fumbling around with this Fluxa leash cannot be called fishing due to the far too light bait. On the website of the provider, various things were promised that did not correspond to reality: "Antonio Gonzalez, who also speaks English and French..." We tried several times to talk to Antonio in English, which was completely unsuccessful. He has made it clear to us that he neither understands nor speaks English. Thus we could not be initiated by him "into the secrets of fishing squid, crestus or golden mackerel". "You can watch dolphins in the meantime." That did not happen either. We did not leave the bay of Palma and therefore of course we did not have a chance to see dolphins. "On his kitchen fire, he will prepare a tasty rice with seafood, all freshly taken from the nets." There was no kitchen fire, rice or nets. We were offered a dry sandwich. A complaint by e-mail was responded with a slightly reworded standard letter (we should have read the small jerk better, the descriptions do not refer to the trip we booked and similar excuses – obviously Antonio speaks only in the Summer English...). We are still waiting for a partial reimbursement of our costs.
