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

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
