Great trip, good crew, good food, good captain, good fishing. We fished offshore and had great fishing for yellowtail and tuna. The fish was handled right and crew was stellar. I could charter the same trip in San Diego for thousands more......but why would I?

Went for a half day fishing trip. Ended up leaving before the boat was even ready. Not a very friendly staff. On top of that, they initially delayed the trip 30 minutes. Don’t know why, maybe boat trouble. 40 minutes later a man showed up...More

We maxed out on sculpin. Not bad for a half day afternoon boat. But what really made it memorable was the crew. The deckhands were extremely helpful and very patient with my wife and daughter who were beginners. I’ve been on countless boats but the...More
