“dolphins and a whale. Whale of a good time.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

Easy parking, boat had bathrooms and food/drink service and we saw some wildlife. I received a two for one coupon from nearby Proud Mary's Restaurant. Great way to spend an afternoon.

“All Day Fishing Around Catalina Island”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

If the fish are out there these guys will get you to them, landing the big one depends on you.. I've fished with this company for over 20 years and I've landed a jackpot fish almost every year.

“Well Run, Terrific Crew”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

This company has been around for a long time and have the routine down pat. The crews are friendly and really know their stuff. On our latest trip we didn't see any whales and were presented with free tickets for another whale watching cruise. Highly recommended.
