"An unforgettable day for any competent skipper" My wife and eleven year old daughter had a wonderful time on Willim's boat. It is moored on the charming Balboa Island and there was free parking all day nearby which was a real bonus. Willim looked after us well: we received a thorough instruction to the boat and then we were free to explore the ocean on our own which was an unforgettable experience. We saw a huge school of dolphins as well as a good number of sea lions. We followed the coast down to Dana Point Harbour, where we relaxed on the two hour guest moorings for lunch then drove back to Newport. Willim also offers the use of a tow-behind inflatable on which we had a lot of fun, although it was tricky to inflate. I believe in buying experiences, not things, and so I would recommend this day out to anyone, provided you know you are competent to handle a boat and anything the sea can throw at you.
This is a very stable fishing platform. Has enough power to get you where you need to go, FAST! It has radar, gps, depth/fish finder. Super clean boat, with great handling! Mike is super friendly and responds quickly to any questions you may have. He made the check in/out process easy. He made many accommodations to make our day on the water very enjoyable. I would recommend Mike's boat to anyone who wanted to fish the Dana/Newport coast. Thanks again Mike!
