Located at Dana Point, one of the most productive fishing spots on the West Coast, they’ll put you on the hottest bite around and show you just why this area is famous for its fishing!

Join them aboard their impressive 65’  Hatteras sportfishing vessel. Serious sportfishing can be done from the lap of comfort and luxury, as the “Boardroom” is keen to show you. Four bathrooms, multiple bedrooms, showers, and a kitchen are all there to help you keep your focus as you go after prestigious fish that live in the area.

You’ll get every advantage you need to reel in that dream fish. Outriggers and downriggers extend your reach when trolling for Tunas or Barracuda. A flybridge helps you spot top-feeding fish.

Kids are more than welcome on board the Boardroom, there’s no minimum age policy. Live bait is available on this charter and it will be prepared in advance for you. The crew will clean and fillet your catch free of charge, as well as assist you in anything you need – gratuity is greatly appreciated ($200 is customary). All the required equipment is provided by the charter.
