Walk the marina the day before and check out the boat with the most flags and ask who the captain was, they will switch boats so thats the key. We got a 6 hour trip for 500 that you pay for bait and licence. Expect more from a full day as far as bigger fish as our other party got a marlin but had to go out far. We saw whales, turtles, sea lions who almost jumped into the boat and dolphins. We caught mahi, sailfish.
