Great tour! Can't wait to come back during peak season and see even more. I appreciated the Captain's efforts to take us as far north as necessary to do some spotting and the end of season drink. Cheers!

We have been visiting Catalina for six years now and have had a chance to try many things the island has to offer. Afishinados charters has been the best by far. We did the flying fish tour on the Cadillac. Even late in the season with seventy five degree water captain John was able to find them. He did a... More

We were very pleased with our trip. Lance did a fantastic job finding the flying fish even very late in the season. The boat is immaculate and very comfortable to be aboard. We are hoping to have the opportunity to take this trip again with our grandchildren. Could not have hoped for anything more.

My family had a great charter with Captain Scott on the Mojo! Left at dawn with my father and my two young sons and picked up live squid for bait. After landing a nice halibut, my father hooked up a yellowtail that was being chased by two large seals. Chaos both above and below water until Capt Scott took over... More

John is an awesome captain, the Catallac is beautiful, immaculate & very comfortable. My family spent the day fishing, snorkeling & eating BBQ. We had so much fun. Without hesitation, I entrusted John with my families' safety on the open ocean, something I do not take lightly. My confidence in him allowed me the luxury to relax, enjoy & focus... More

Captain John King and the Catallac made memories for our group on our recent charter trip from Long Beach to view the bald eagle territories at Catalina's West End and Two Harbors. Professional, knowledgeable, and just plain fun, John's enthusiasm for what he does is evident. He was really easy to work with in making our charter plans and itinerary,... More

I went with a charter group on the Catallac to view the bald eagles on Catalina. Captain John picked us up in Long Beach and almost as soon as we were out of the harbor Captain John spotted a pod of Risso's dolphins, who are usually very shy. Captain John cut the boat's motors and the dolphins came right up... More

I went on Afishinados' Flying Fish Tour with a girl friend and we had a great time. Captain John was knowledgeable about marine life and quickly located the flying fish. We even got to see sea lions hunting the flying fish -- it was quite the chase scene! The Catallac is a beautiful boat with lots of space to walk... More

The Flying Fish tour on Captain John's catamaran "Catallack" was absolutely amazing! From the moment we stepped foot on the boat Captain John made us feel right at home. It was also evident that he was just as excited about the excursion as the passengers were. The boat is clean and expertly outfitted with an array high intensity lights that... More

We took three trips with these guys and they were all a lot of fun. The first trip was snorkeling and captain John showed us some very interesting sites. The kelp forests were very interesting and much different than the coral we are used to seeing in hawaii. The second trip was the flying fish tour and was very intetesting.... More
