If only there were more than five stars to rate Captain John with! This trip was the most amazing we’ve been on! Captain John knows these waters well and took us to places where there were sea lions and an incredible amount of dolphins that swam beside the boat extensively! Captain John is classy, professional, a load of fun and so very accommodating! Incredible!!!

Had the experience of a lifetime on this killer boat. It’s super chic and gorgeous and made for the perfect backdrop for my sister in law’s bachelorette celebration. The warm air, the beautiful sunset, the calm ocean were all fantastic but the experience was really made by Captain John’s expertise and enthusiasm. Not only does he know the island like the back of his hand and found us the best calm coves and scenery, but he must also be a dolphin whisperer because he managed to find us the biggest pod of hundreds of dolphins and they swam and played with the boat for what felt like an hour. It was a beautiful magical evening (did I mention they have delicious cocktails onboard?!) that I will remember always.

Over the last seven years I have taken this excursion at least three other times. Each time in the past not only did we get to see some flying fish near Lovers Cove, the boat continue down to see and hear all the seals at seal rock and see the quarry at the south east end of the island. It was a full hour adventure. However August 2019 the boat barely left Avalon Harbor down to lovers Cove and turned around. It was a much much shorter trip, and although we saw some flying fish, it now misses out on a lot of what made this great night time fun. It’s still OK, just nearly as good as it used to be.

This is a fun activity to do in the evening- interesting to be out in the ocean at night. The crew was friendly and a lot of fun. Although we didn't see a lot of flying fish (seeing 1 makes the trip worth it), it was exciting when we did see them. Also provides great views of Avalon (the Casino, the harbor, pebbly beach street shops and restaurants) lit up at night. Well worth it!!!!

We had so much fun!!!! My boyfriend and I went to see the famous flying fish and we were not disappointed! This boat tour was one of my favorite parts of the trip. The staff is experienced and VERY good at what they do. They have an awesome bar and beautiful boat. We ended up doing the 8pm tour and it was a great time to sea the flying fish and plenty of sea lions chasing them! I tell all of my friends/family to make sure to do the tour at least once! I would have gone again if we didn’t run out of time. It’s really a great time for all ages!!!
