Fisherman's Wharf/Pier 45
San Francisco CA, United States

Departing from Fisherman’s Wharf, you will find yourself cruising aboard Argo Sportfishing Charters, an unforgettable experience that has no match in the whole of the San Franciso Bay Area.

Designed to accommodate up to 6 anglers in spacious comfort and style, their 33 ft Argo boat is a true work of art. It is powered by a 210 HP Catipiler engine, has an attractive wood interior cabin and all the top-notch navigational electronics. The vessel is very cozy and provides a pleasant ride anywhere you go. The Argo has a toilet on board for a maximum comfort on the water and a large dinette.

Being a true master, the Captain will take you to the best fishing grounds, be it inshore in the San Francisco Bay, or nearshore in the coastal ocean. Depending on the season, you will be targeting what is biting best: Striped Bass, Sturgeon, Halibut, Salmon, Rockfish, Leopard Shark or Crabs. Sailing outside the Golden Gate, you will find Salmon available throughout the summer and fall months. Going to the local reefs will lead you to Rockfish from June till December.

The Captain will share his knowledge about different fish species and how to catch them. Even when it’s chilly outside, with Argo Sportfishing you will never get bored.

Fishing with various techniques, ranging from light to heavy tackle, from trolling to drift fishing, the crew will put your hands on fish. A live bait tank, lures, rods, reels, and tackle are included in the price.

Plenty of space, lots of fun, attention to details. Argo Sportfishing is just the right choice.
