Sorry you had a bad experience. Normally the captain comes in when boat limits are reached. That’s a Dept of Fish and Wildlife regulation. Please get hold of our manager, Bruce at 805-772-1222, as I would be interested to hear what happened.

We had a great time. The captain and his crew were awesome. We had a private charter for 14 of us and it was perfect. The fish were biting big time. We did a quarter day, but caught are limit and had to return early....More

This was so much fun. I was a first timer and caught my limit no problem. If you dont have sea legs start taking dramamine the day before. It helped me.

Thank you for the nice review. Glad we have you HOOKED on fishing now. Scopolamine patches work really well, but you have to get a prescription from your doctor. Just FYI....... July, Aug and Sept the ocean is much calmer.
