So, contrary to rumor, there is no yacht club at China Lake. That makes strolling along all those big boats so much fun. Big boats, power boats, and sail boats. Sea gulls looking for handouts, The slapping of waves on supporting piers. And hardly anybody else around. Outstanding.

Being an avid fisherman and having gone on tons of charter boats on BOTH coasts, I understand that it’s called fishing and not catching. This is not what this review is about. This is about customer service, or lack thereof. I expect deck hands to be pro-active, in that they try everything in their power to help paying customers catch... More

Fisherman's Landing is a great place to watch the action of a sportfishing port. Go about 7 a.m. or 7 p.m. and see the catch being weighed and photographed. Walk the docks and see the different boats moored. Have a meal at Mitch's, or shop in the (fishing gear dominated) store. Best, book a boat trip. If fishing is not... More

This was my first open water fishing trip. The Capt and crew was awesome. The Capt. was always on the look out for fish even stretching it to try to improve everyone's catch count. The crew helped me out with casting to getting the bait out of the hole lol. They never sounded as if it was a bother to... More

Booked a 3/4 day fishing on "Prowler." Price quoted was $145 which was to include license and permit for fishing Corodado Islands. When I showed up, they charged me an extra $18 bucks for a Mexico license. No refund policy, so I had to pay the extra charge or lose my $145. Very deceptive to say the fee includes all... More

Ok, for starters this was my 2nd trip on Pacific Queen. I took a 2 day trip in July and an overnight trip last Friday 9/11/15. This is a nice boat and a great crew. I slept in bunk forward under the A/C; nice and cozy. Heather was the cook on the 2 day and did a fine job. Excellent... More

The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable about the area and the animals around. as soon as we left the harbor and were in the Pacific Ocean they spotted the first 3 whales. The crew was great, as soon as they spotted the whales, they told us where to look. We... More

I take trips 2 to 6 days in length about five times per year. These trips have better service onboard and, usually, great food. The tackle shop is stocked well, but can have items out of stock in peak season. Loading times vary per boat and some have better amenities than others. Parking can be dreadful but in offseason its... More
