beautiful day on the water

Crew was stellar and always ready when we needed help. We saw a whale, dolphins, sea lions. Fished at three spots...last stop was the best. Friendly guests...we ended up taking home 8 donated fish! Great time

The fish weren't biting much. The deck hands could have been more help to the novce fisher man. Not sure I will return.

The crew was very attentive to everyone on the boat and excursion. They were very accessible and helpful with repairing broken lines to helping all with catching fish. I highly recommend this charter service.

I was a little skeptical to book a trip on the pacific coast on a bigger boat with 20+ other strangers. Past experiences on other large fishing boats have been very disappointing. After talking to some locals, they assured me this was different and they were so right! The price was extremely reasonable, the captain & mates very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable and everyone caught fish! I highly recommend fishing with them and if I get back to the Orange County area, I will certainly book again!

My nephew and I took the half day boat and it was great! The crew was so nice and helpful. No matter what you needed they were right there with it. Great food and fishing!

Disappointing

We took this trip on a Wednesday, so there were not as many people on the boat as usual (I'm told.) The crew was friendly, but could have been more helpful, especially with my 80 year old father-in-law. While I can't blame the captain or the crew for the lack of (everyone's) success, it would have been helpful to set the expectation when we inquired about the trip before the purchase. (Crew said it has been slow all season and the fish have been too small to keep.) All this said, the crew did make us feel welcome.

Awesome time!!

We went out on the 6:30 am trip. To our surprise, this trip had 5 professional deep sea fishing instructors from "Owner" hooks. They gave two fishing classes on board as we got underway. When we were on the fishing beds, these Guys gave awesome advise, tips, and tricks everything, bait size, baiting techniques, casting, even reeling in the "big one"!!!

My son quickly picked it up, even for a first timer, he caught a barracuda and bass. He is asking to go out again. Staff was patient and supportive - overall great day out at sea.

We went out on a Sunday morning on a full boat. The deck crew were very helpful with advice and service in general.
