Extreme Aerial Bow Fishing

   Has anyone ever done the Extreme Aerial Bow Fishing with Chris Brackett? Me and my family did it and it was the best vacation my family ever had. Even my kids said they liked it better than Disney World and would pick to do the bow fishing over Disney World any day. If you ever get the opportunity to do this it is a must do. You won't regret it and you won't be able to wait until you get to go back again!!!!!

It is definitely one of the funnest things I and my family have ever done. I warn you though, this is not for small children or the weak of heart. You have fish jumping every where and sometimes they hit you very hard. I got nailed right in the face and it felt like I got nailed by a 2x4. Of course my whole family died laughing when it happened. We did get this all on a DVD as well. Well worth the money.

One whole day on the boat, drinks provided, equipment provided, and lunch provided, he charged $1,000 for the boat and we had 4 of us. so, $250 per person. The DVD is extra and it was $250. This may seem steep to some, but to my family it was the best vacation we ever took. Well worth the money.
