Sea Change Villas particularly recommends Brendon who skippers his boat ‘Dawn Breaker’ . Brendon goes fishing at optimum feeding times so this can mean early start times and the opportunity to see the sun rise over the beautiful island of Rarotonga. Guests really enjoy Brendon great conversation skills and his commitment to ensuring that our special guest has the best possible opportunity to catch “a big one”.
