It looks likely that one of our most treasured trips is no longer an option beginning in 2024. Many of you have reached out and asked… where have the SCI trips gone? Why can’t I book SCI? I watched Rob on YouTube and want to do the SCI trip… the comments go on and on.

First off, we love that you love this trip so much. At the peak a couple of years back, we scheduled eight (8) trips with a couple of 3.5 days in the mix as well. I even married a kayak fishing couple on the water… incredible memory!

I am not at liberty to say why exactly these trips may no longer exist on the calendar… however I can say that nothing bad happened, no bad blood or anything negative like that. We have nothing but love for the Islander and their crew. When the time comes, it will all make sense.

I damn near begged John for one more trip this year because we never really got to say good-bye to this trip. Well, that is where the good news comes in… We have one more 2.5 day kayak mothership trip scheduled for 2023.

This trip will run in early November when the waters are still warm, the summer crowds are gone and the island should be stacked with fish. With a new time slot on the calendar, ideal kayak fishing conditions and the Islander catching up their pricing to full fare/peak season with adjustments for the current economy… the price of this trip has increased by over 20%.

Before anyone starts throwing daggers our way… we do not make-up these prices. We take a contract out with the boat to fill it up. This is not nor will ever be a money maker for us, we add a small percentage to cover credit/debit card processing fees, nothing more.

We want to gauge the interest of our audience to see if we can fill up multiple dates or just a single trip. We want to give this trip a proper send off and give people the chance to do something unique in the southern California area before it goes away.

Email trips@fishvillage.com to let us know you are interested so that we can put you on the short list.
