Nothing fancy but do that job

You paid, get the fishing rod and board the boat. Nothing fancy but job done. The skipper was nice as he tried to go to different location to find a good spot. The boat stayed... read more

Great trip, got lots of lobsters. The crew was fantastic and very helpful. Unlike past lobster hooping trips, we fished while the hoops were soaking, which made it more interesting. If you want to go lobster hooping, definitely go with the Alicia.

We did not see Gilligan's Island. We took the afternoon trip on a beautiful San Diego day. The boats in this fleet are fishing boats, which is fine if you are able bodied. It was a bit of a challenge for us because of physical difficulties, but the staff on board were very helpful. This tour is not accessible for... More

My family took an afternoon half day fishing trip on the Premier. We had a blast. Every member of the family caught a number of fish. The crew was outstanding with help from start to finish. There were instructions on how to bait the hook, how to cast, and which bait would work best for different types of fish. They... More

We knew we were at the beginning of the season. But yet they are selling the tour way before they will start to migrate..... We just thought "whale" maybe we'll see some whales because they're selling the tour so there must be whales. Literally 2 minutes after we departed the dock, the captain gets on and starts to tell everybody... More

You paid, get the fishing rod and board the boat. Nothing fancy but job done. The skipper was nice as he tried to go to different location to find a good spot. The boat stayed quite long out there and not rushing.

Was able to go fishing with a work group as a team building event. Fishing was ok, I caught a bigger bird than I did fish. (Birds were very annoying going after your line when you cast.) All in all everyone had a great time and even caught some nice fish.

When the fishing is tough, the crew has to shine. This gang sets the bar! The fishing was very slow on our 2 1/2 day trip, but they did everything they could to not only find and catch fish, but to take care of their guests as though they were family, despite being completely worn out and frustrated by the...

We had a wonderful time on the Constitution and the crew of Captain Keith. Incredible food from Antonio in the galley. These guys know how to fish for the big Tuna!
