Yes, all the fishing gear is provided and our cook encourages it! Whatever we catch that is edible is cooked for passengers or used for sushi! The rest is saved for the chumsicle and the shark feeding dive. Just keep in mind that we spend a bit of time within the limits of the Land & Sea Park which is a marine sanctuary. There is no fishing or taking of any kind while we are within the park boundaries. Otherwise, we are happy to fish and lobster when in season.
