About Us

Our mission is to share our love of the sea and Catalina Island with like minded ocean enthusiasts through Afishinados Charters and through original fish art made by us and our friends and only available through Afishinados Gallery Store.

Afishinados Inc is a small, husband and wife corporation with big ideas and lots of energy.  In 2002 we started offering local fishing trips through Afishinados Charters.  At that time we had one boat.  We now have 4 boats in our fleet which technically makes Capt. John a Commodore!  Our boats range from a 24' open center console named Mojo to a 50' custom-built power catamaran named Catallac.  We offer many types of boat tours in addition to fishing charters including; Sunset Cruises, Wildlife SeaFaris, Flying Fish Tours, special events floats (4th of July and other holiday themed events) Island Transport to Two Harbors and Mainland destinations, private cruises and celebration of life cruises.

In 2006 Karen started making fish art to support our charter business.  First came fish flags, then fish t-shirts and apparel followed by fish sculptures in fabric and metal.  We now have a full gallery store with original fish art from more than 25 artists (many of whom live on or love Catalina Island).  The pieces in our gallery range from $2.00 to $4,000 and include fine jewelry, paintings, prints, wood, metal and stone sculpture, glass and ceramic art as well as some fishy pieces that simply defy categorization.

In late 2013 we decided to try and build an on-line store to complement our brick and mortor location on Catalina Island.  Although we are not sure if this idea will work, we have many friends who continually ask us why we do not reach out and sell on line...now we are.  We hope you enjoy our 'fish e-store'.
