James is the most hard working skipper I have ever seen. He got us into a bunch of tuna and worked his tail off to keep lines in the water while landing 5 to 6 tuna per person

We had a better than expected time whale watching aboard Samson. The captain was very friendly and knowledgeable. We saw lots of whales! The only disappointment was that we didn't go much past the port to see them. Could have easily seen them from the whale watching viewing area next to the harbor, just not as close. Well worth the...

I have been fishing saltwater for many years out of L.A., and this trip was by far the best. We were on the Endeavor and on fish all day. Ken the Skipper was great, very knowledgeable, he flat out knows what he is doing. Robert, Ken's deckhand was busy, very help full, and always there with the gaff. No doubt,... More

There were 3 couples in our group, the sun was shining and we were off. We were told that they had reports of a gray whale in the area. So we were going to go see if it could be seen. All 3 couples were on the bow of the boat with a family of 4 (as there were no... More

Our first time out on the ocean was a whale watching trip on their boat. So much fun! The price was great. The boat was not at all crouded. We had a ball!

Not the best day fishing but we still had a blast.. We wanted to do some crabbing but they were great to let us know it was not the best time right now.. Could have took our money and ran but was upfront and honest. . THANKS.

This really was the highlight of our trip. Was not cheap, but well worth the money. The boat captain was great. The fish were not biting very well and you could tell he was getting frustrated because he wanted us all to catch something. The seas were pretty rough and he was very clear on safety precautions. I have recommended... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip with Captain Lars. Captain Lars and David made sure everyone was taken care of - they put us on the fish and the entire boat caught our quota. Highly recommend this company and this crew!

Went out with a few friends salmon fishing on June 30th, and I have to say that the crew were awesome on Endeavor, getting us into the fish, which were few and far between on the day we fished. The swell was a big high but the focus of the captain and deck hand was on getting everyone fishing and... More
