Afishinados Charters provided a wonderful 2 hour cruise around Marina del Rey. Captain John and Scott were wonderful hosts and tour guides and took great care of all of us throughout the trip. We even got to see dolphins at play. Definitely recommend them for team outings or family trips. Thanks again for a great experience.

Been on those guided tours where the guide recites the same lines from the last 100 excursions? Not with Captain John King! My wife and I wandered into the King's shop, all things fish related, on Crescent Ave and chatted up Mrs King. We left with tickets on the 10:30 AM cruise. Just by dumb luck we went up to... More

We had 49 participants on a 1-1/2 hour morning excursion. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves. John's knowledge and humor was a highlight on the outing and his crew took great care of all of us. Our excursion on the Catallac was a high point on our weekend on Catalina.

I went on the flying fish tour last month. I can't even begin to explain how awesome the night was. The boat was gorgeous and comfortable. Captain John was a genuine guy with a great personality. He seemed every bit as excited about seeing the flying fish as we were. Saw flying fish, sea lions, and the most beautiful stars.... More

I wanted to go on a sunset cruise to Two Harbors, but unfortunately there wasn't one available on the days we were in Avalon. We came across the Afishinados walking on Crescent Ave where they had brochures and cards describing their many tours. They had a 1 1/2 hour sunset cruise that evening that sounded perfect. We were able to... More

We recently stayed in Avalon on Santa Catalina Island for two nights (1.5 days), and wanted to experience as much of the island as we could in that relatively short period of time. In addition to parasailing, underwater fishwatching, touring the Casino building, and a jeep tour of the island's interior, we really wanted to swim in the beautifully clear... More

We've been to Catalina many times but this was our first Afishinados experience and it won't be our last. The sunset cruise was fabulous. The route Captain Lance took was extremely interesting and totally unavailable to the casual tourist. He also regaled us with interesting facts about the sea life and the surrounding area. The boat is beautiful and immaculately... More

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
