Afishinados Ranked #1 in Avalon on TripAdvisor

Trip Advisor Ranks Afishinados Charters #1 of 35 ‘Things To Do’ in Avalon

May 27, 2011, Avalon -Afishinados Charters, an Avalon-based boat chartering service specializing in fishing and touring Catalina Island has been ranked the number one tour among 35 ‘Things To Do in Avalon’. Afishinados Charters was established primarily as a fishing charter service in 2002. However, as Catalina Island has been evolving into an eco destination, Afishinados has evolved it’s offerings to include Sunset and Moonlight Cruises, Flying Fish Tours and new in 2011, a naturalist-led Catalina by Land & Sea Tour.

Many tour companies rely on large numbers of passengers to operate. A distinguishing feature of the Afishinados Charters is the intimacy. All charters are limited to six passengers or less, affording each guest full attention. As an example, each passenger on a Flying Fish Tour operates their own hand-held beam of light to spot and track the flight of these amazing fish. The smaller sized groups allow for on-the-spot adjustments to the tours with many off-tangent opportunities on any given tour, such as tracking a mako shark or photographing the Great Blue Heron chicks in their nest. This flexibility allows Afishinados to find the flying fish, wherever they may be, thereby increasing the number of flyers seen on any given trip to hundreds of flyers and sometimes thousands. The results are reflected in Afishinados climb through the Trip Advisor rankings.

Afishinados operates a waterfront gallery store on Crescent Avenue in Avalon. They can be contacted at 310-510-2440 or on the web at www.afishinados.com.
