Hi there. Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. Our boats do run full nearly every day in July, and that can keep the crew members quite busy as they attempt to assist everyone onboard. That said, you deserve to feel...More

My wife and I went on the halibut charter a few weeks ago and loved it. It was so much fun. The people were great, the scenery was beautiful and we caught our limit. Almost everyone did. Great time and well worth the money.
