Sorry about the delay folks… we had a bout of COVID run through our homes that brought everything to a halt. Fortunately, we are all better now and ready to get right back at it.
We mentioned in our last major post that we were changing how we are managing these kayak mothership trips to improve the customer experience, both behind the scenes and while you are out there fishing. As the demand grows for this trip, so do the administrative tasks such as booking, managing the roster, managing cancellations, payments, preparing our customers for their adventure and much more. We are prepared and in a good place to make the 2022 kayak mothership season the best season yet.
This is a reminder that we are not accepting any bookings from our website, DMs or text messages at this time. We are in the process of contacting every single guest from the 2021 season, including those that pushed their reservation to 2022. If you were on any of our 2021 SCI kayak mothership trips (including the trips that converted to tuna), you will have first right of refusal. Once we have contacted every single person, we will open up booking to the public.
Central Coast Kayak Fishing (CCKF) Trip
- 6/12/22 – 6/15/22 (2.5 day) — Ryan Howell
- Second trip is available if the demand is there
We have three community group trips this year. These trips are for their community… for their folks. This creates an environment where the group supports each other and helps each other be successful.
Ryan Howell has been running community group trips for Fish Village for years now and they consistently report back great fishing, fun times and incredible first time experiences. His Central Coast Kayak Fishing (CCKF) community is a solid group of kayak anglers that support each other, support Fish Village and support the overall kayak fishing community.
RETURNING GUESTS: We will contact you and give you first chance to book before we open up to the public. If the dates don’t work out for you and you want to go on another trip, you certainly can choose to do that.
Fresh & Salty (Fns) Trips
- 6/2/22 – 6/5/22 (2.5 day) — Cameron & Kei
- 6/9/22 – 6/12/22 (2.5 day) — Junior & Ricky
Last year we introduced norCal’s Fresh n Salty to our kayak mothership trip with Robert Field, host of YouTube’s Field Trips show, and they absolutely loved it. They had the highest fish count of any trip.
The loved it so much, that we had to secure two (2) trips for their group because over 120 FnS anglers tried to book one (1) trip last year… so we had to up to ante for them. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
BOOKING PROCESS: Due to the high demand for these trips, we felt that it would be best to have FnS leaders organize the trip roster and help facilitate communications between Fish Village and the group. This means that Cameron, Kei, Junior and Ricky will be organizing the roster and Fish Village will manage the billing and payments.

2.5 day Kayak Mothership Trips
- 6/23/22 – 6/26/22
- 6/30/22 – 7/3/22
3.5 day Kayak Mothership Trips
- 6/26/22 – 6/30/22
- 7/6/22 – 7/10/22
Fish Village will once again be partnering up with Pure Watersports of Dana Point and Oceanside to bring southern California anglers four (4) more kayak mothership trips for the 2022 season. Last year we introduced the 3.5 day format which quickly sold out and ended up being one of the best trips of the season. Having the honor of marrying two people on a perfect sun kissed evening was one of the highlights of 2021. An incredible memory for all involved. Sooo… we had to add another 3.5 day trip.
RETURNING GUESTS: We will contact you and give you a chance to book before we open up to the public.
In closing, if you have been on our trips and want to come back… WECLOME BACK! We sure do appreciate your patronage and support over the years. If you have never been on this trip and want to join in on the fun, hold tight your shot is coming.
More SCI news coming on Thursday 1/13. We always post to our website first… so keep your eyes peeled for another update.
