The crew was great nice and friendly the only thing I did not like was it was a small area for fishing. Everything else was great they had soda and water for us.

Great Captain and crew.  First time fishing in San Diego and decent fishing compared to other places Ruth and I have been.  Very happy with the 40 inch Amber Jack pictured here.

This was my families first time fishing in the ocean.
My three kids are 11, 11 and 10.  They were a little concerned about the whole idea but ended up having an amazing time and can’t wait to go again.  Captain Mike and his Assistant Brandon were incredibly patient with all of us first timers and made it a fun and enjoyable day.  Would highly recommend them.

We have had better experience with other charters. The price was high for the experience

Hi Scott,
Sorry you didn’t have a good experience on the charter.
Unfortunately, the day of your charter the seas were 5-6 feet and the wind was 20-25kts and we were unable to make it down to the fishing grounds where the bonito and yellowtail were biting.  The safety of our passengers is our highest priority.  After heading out 3 miles to the yellowtail spot and attempting to fish, I determined the conditions were unsafe to fish offshore and we decided to the fish the bay for a wide open bite of spotted bass and halibut.  We later returned offshore to give it another shot but it was still to rough and the fish were not biting.
I believe the price of our charter is competitive with all the 6 pack charters operating out of San Diego.  We are one of the least expensive boats with the ability to take 6 people with a high quality boat and crew.
Please let me know if I have accurately described the day of your charter or if you have any other questions or concerns.
Thank you!

We had an amazing experience with Marc & Brandon! They took us around a lot of spots near the islands, we also caught some beautiful Bonita, and some rock fish. We even had some fresh sashimi before we docked! It was hands-down a great trip with my family & friends and the crew! I definitely recommend these guys!!!

Went out for a half day trip and caught more fish than we could eat!  Probably 40 fish, mostly yellow tail and bonita.  Great overall experience!  Awesome crew that did everything for us.  Will definitely be doing this again!

Another successful ‘customer appreciation’ trip.  Capt Marc and his deckhand, Brandon, were great hosts.  We limited on yellow tail very early in our day.  We were hoping for some Dorado or even yellow fin as well but that was no fault of the captain, he definitely did his job and put us on top of the fish.  Last year we had an epic customer trip with blue fin, and I knew it would be hard to top that, but I didn’t notice any disappointment with my customers - they had a blast!

Thanks Captain.  Hope we can do this again next year.

I’ve fished enough to know that there is no guarantee but there is always something to catch out there. It would have been nice if the captain would have sat down and told us that he had been out 2 days before and really didn’t catch anything and what we would like to go after, instead we took a 12 hour boat ride and had rods in our hands a total of about 25 minutes, we pretty much watched the deckhand go through drills on changing out pole styles for 12 hours.  Not our best day of fishing, but it will be remembered.

Great trip. Captain Mike is very passionate about what he does, and that passion showed in the overall trip. He put tremendous effort into making sure we had a good time. We will definitely be fishing again with him.

Awesome trip, exceptional captain and mate.  I will definitely go back to fish with them.  I fish wherever and whenever I can.  I’m always looking for someone to go back to and Mike is one of these captains I will return to.

My Son and some friends went fishing and they had a lot of fun.  I accidentally overpaid some money. Marc, the capital was a very honest guy and he refunded me the overpaid amount immediately.  I really appreciate it.  Thank you for a good fishing trip!
