This was a great charter. We were bottom fishing for rock fish and did not have to go far out to start catching fish. The water was fairly calm and only a few people got seas sick. There was a limit of 7 per person and almost everyone caught the limit. The crew, especially Gene, was very helpful in getting... More

There were 7 in our party including the 5 year old grandson. Great time seeing 5 gray whales and one Humpback. This was a 60 minute cruise and a perfect outing. Take your coat and be prepared to get wet especially if you hang out on the bow of the boat. It was great to get out on the ocean,... More

Took a bottom fishing plus crab trip with three people in our group, twenty total, on the Sunrise. Skipper and deckhand were great. Highly recommend that boat; try to book it. We did at least as good as the other boats and better than some in terms of fish/person (close to limit on a rougher day). The down side was... More

Was told that bottom fishing was doing great, we only came back with about 4 fish per person. We were told crabbing was great, we came back with about 7 crabs per person. Instructed to come back for the cooked and clean crab to find out that someone stole a tote of crab decreasing our share by 2 crabs per... More

Our family of four enjoyed a 1-hour whale watching tour. We saw whales and had a great time on the boat. It was a bit windy and choppy but still fun. The captain and deck hand knew exactly where to take the boat for whales. And thankfully though none of us got sick (dramamine, baby) for the ones who did... More

Great people to work with. I made a reservation for the Ashes at Sea trip for my family and they made everything so easy for us. My mother-in-law is elderly and needed extra help getting to the boat and they have a port dock load instead of the long flight of stairs for people in need. The 3 people on... More

Nice size boat to either go fishing or whale watching. Captain did a great job locating the whales and getting us in position to view.

Last year we used a competitor, and we the trip was ok.... After reading reviews this year we switched to Tradewinds the boat felt less tippy maybe the sea was calmer but it was a much better ride. The crew were fabulous they were personable and frindly. Much better experience we will be back. Oh we saw whales....

We really enjoyed Tradewinds charters whale watching recently. The staff was very friendly and informative. It was great to get out into the open water and see they Grey Whales. I believe the whale we saw surfaced about 6 or 7 times during our hour trip. It was really something! I know that it can be a hit and miss... More

Owners and several captains currently in jail on theft, racketeering and wildlife violations. If it even opens back up, I'd stay away.
