Jim & Joe were awesome, the boat was spacious with a great bathroom and cabin. We had three people and two seniors, everybody was comfortable the whole time. The fishing was awesome... every person on the charter caught their limit in one hour on rockfish. Spectacular fishing.

Growing up in Santa Barbara, I never had the opportunity to explore the Channel Islands by sea until Captain Jim and his crew took my family out on a day trip. The boat was clean and comfortable, the crew and captain were friendly and knowledgable. I can't wait to go again!

The best part of my trip was learning how to fish! Thanks Captain Jim! P.S. I am happy I didn't have to bait my own hook.

Fantastic Fishing! 5 people caught our limit. In only one hour and we caught 50 fish. Capt. Jim and Joe baited our hooks, took the fish off and put into the cooler. Then when we hit our limit, the cleaned all of our fish and put them in plastic bags. Best fishing trip ever! :-)
