My wife and I went to Catalina on our honeymoon and we took the flying fish tour. It was one of the best experiences we had there! It was amazing sights and the Capt. was a really good guy! Highly recommend if you plan on having fun in Catalina!

While in Catalina over the 4th of July, myself and three friends went out for a morning of fishing on the Afishinados MOJO boat. It was great and Captain Lance knew just where to catch some nice fish. Beautiful day and everyone had a fab time. I highly recommend the service for anyone who likes to catch fish.

I've been sailing to Catalina for over 30 years, and have never seen a flying fish (except in pictures and on t-shirts), so I had to take a flying fish tour when I was at my first (but not last) Flying Fish Festival.Not knowing the festival schedule, I called Karen at Afishinados (her incredible boutique where not only is everything...

While in Catalina this week (June 8-11) we took the Afishinado Flying Fish tour at night. What an awesome experience that I would recommend to anyone who wants a great time and a truly unique experience. Captain John and mate Scott really know how to take care of their customers. Sea Lions were chasing these fish to where they fly... More

My husband and I had a little birthday getaway to Catalina this weekend. While shopping in the delightful Afishinado boutique, we booked a flying fish tour. This night-time adventure was the highlight of our trip for sure. Captain John is very personable and interacts with all the passengers. This is not your typical tourist attraction. We saw thousands of flying... More

This cruise is surely one that I will never forget. As we cruised out to the west end of the island to see the sunset first Captain John was very informative & full of history & knowledgeable about the island & its past. First as we picked up speed the boat was surrounded by dolphins. It was great to see... More

My wife and our 11 year old daughter booked the 2 harbors trip on the Afishinados Catallac Charter. We expected a bit of a "yawner" but Captain John and his first mate made the trip very memorable and fun. First of all, the boat is new, very clean and goes very fast. Unlike some of the other boats we have... More

You can tell people that in California the fish walk onto the beach to be caught... (the grunion...) and they think you are telling a tall tale, but when you tell them that in California there are fish that actually fly, well then they think that you are really making up stories... that's when you tell them to make sure...

We recently had a family reunion on Catalina Island that included a 6 hour boat charter with Captain John at the helm of the "Catallac". It was a great experience from start to finish and was all about what we wanted to do and how we wanted to spend our day - swimming, skin diving, a stop at the isthmus,... More
