I did the June 7 day on the Excel last month, 11th to the 18th. The wind blew, and as far as tuna go, we scratched a few footballs one day, and that was it. We had fantastic YT fishing, but that was about it. I did catch the JP, which was just one of two WSB caught on the trip. The Excel is awesome, and I had a great time, but being stuck on YT's for 7 days isn't much variety. I'm signed up for an 8 day on the Excel in late August next year, as I like variety, and it's pretty much a given that time of year. In June you have to deal with wind and not being able to go offshore, later in the year you might get stuck running for tropical storms. It's a toss up, and you will figure it out once you get a few trips under your belt. Fishing can be good or bad on any trip, but you should have a good time regardless no matter which you choose. The Shogun is an awesome boat too, and that's a smokin deal for that June 6 day. Aaron will get you on fish and knows how to catch those big bluefin.
