Captain Sean Quine has an awesome 49 ft Charter and he knows his stuff. We had a great experience on "The Good Wife". We saw dolphins and a sword fish jumping out of the water. What a great way to relax and enjoy the peace...More

Sean and his "first mate" Mark gave us a really memorable day trip. We went over on "The Good Wife" to Anacapa. Kayaked the caves, swam, ate a delicious home-made (by Sean!) lunch. Sean is knowledgable, nice and just wants everyone to have a good...More

Half day/Full day/Multi-day options. We went out for 3 days (2 overnights) and it was great. Alcohol is allowed although it is BYOB. And you could easily do 6 guests plus the captain and a mate.
