San Diego Charters

San Diego Charters is operated by Captain Kevin, who has been fishing these waters for years and knows every spot where the fish like to hide. He will take you fishing in his boat Lady Grace, which is just made for the always eventful San Diego Bay or the beautiful California coastline.

Lady Grace is a 36 foot Grand Banks trawler boat, which was originally built in 1966 and restored in 2016. It is powered by two 120 HP naturally aspirated diesel engines with a comfortable cruising speed of 9 knots. The boat has a capacity for 6 guests and is wide and spacious enough for everyone to enjoy. It is equipped with a GPS, a fishfinder, a radar and a VHF radio, as well as all the necessary safety equipment.

The boat has a flybridge, a shower and a toilet, a bed, a kitchen with a refrigerator and a multimedia system all for your enjoyment. You will also find an icebox aboard, which will preserve the freshness of your catch.

San Diego Charters operates in the inshore waters of San Diego Bay and the offshore waters, too. You will be targeting species such as White Seabass, Black Drum, Halibut, Blue Marlin, Mahi Mahi, Yellowtail Amberjack, Bluefin Tuna, Skipjack Tuna and other species available in these rich waters.

Captain Kevin will provide you with rods, reels, tackle, live and artificial baits, and cleaning and filleting service of your catch at the end of the trip. You will also have drinks and snacks served on the boat.
