Took a flying fish tour in Sep'15 through Afishinados charters. It was off-season but we saw hundreds of flying fish under the flashlight in night. Shiny beauties flying around the boat. Captain John and his fellow were just amazing and they knew where to go and made the whole experience happening. We saw sea lions jumping and hunting flying fish.... More

My nephew, son and myself went out fishing with Scott. He was such a great captain. We caught 5 different types of fish. Scott filleted them and recommended we go to the Lobster Trap to have them cooked for us. What a fabulous experience to eat our fresh catch of the day. This was such a memorable trip for us.

We chartered the Catallac and it was better than advertised. The boat had all the amenities and rides like a dream. We were interested in seeing some wild life and doing some fishing and with Captain John delivered on both. We saw three different types of dolphins, a Blue Whale, a Bald Eagle nest, Many Species of birds, and a... More

My family and I had the most exciting time on the flying fish tour. The crew was incredibly helpful and patient (even when my daughter spilled her hot chocolate). Definitely ready to do it again next season. Thanks.

Probably the best charter operation in Avalon, these folks do most things right. Their boats are spare but clean, the personnel knowledgeable and confidence-inspiring. The fishing trips are ideal for families and amateurs, if not so hot for the experienced angler. Pricey too, but that's charter fishing these days. Ditto for the flying fish cruises. Still, both are fun.

We had a great time with John. He is professional and very friendly to my guests. His knowledge of the sea was important and helped us catch some beautiful Yellowtail (37lb) and Skipjack (14lb) fish. We were able to control when we left the dock and when we came in. He filet the fish when we returned and we put... More

What to do on a full moon warm summer night in Catalina? Take a flying fish tour on the Catallac! Captain John found the fish even though he did warn us the kelp forests these creatures seek to lay their eggs were devastated from winter storms and that we'd be fortunate to see any at all. And the topper was... More

We took a happy hour cruise on the Catallac and had a fabulous time. It was a beautiful cruise on the water and both Captain John and his first mate were friendly, informative and made the cruise a very pleasant experience. I would recommend this cruise to anyone who likes cruising on the water.

Absolutely perfect! I was really looking forward to this relaxing sunset cruise and they didn't disappoint. The music was perfect, amazing views, and the captain gave us just the right amount of info about the island (didn't talk the entire time). We will definitely do this again in the future!
