The boat

Private fishing charters for up to four passengers in So Cal. Channel Islands for Inshore & Deep Sea Fishing.

Also, Dolphin & Whale watching trips up to five passengers!

Captain John “JT” Lepien has been fishing since he was a teenager and has been fishing locally in the Channel Islands for decades! The most rewarding part of running fishing charters is seeing that moment when someone catches one of their very first fish! I see the joy and excitement on their face, and it allows me to reminiscence the moment when I caught my first fish. You can’t put a price on that experience, and I truly love sharing my passion with others!
