Tranquilo Bay LLC fishing charters will take you on an unforgettable day in the waters of Newport Beach. Captain Elliot has been fishing in the area for 20 years and there’s hardly a fishing spot he doesn’t know about. The variety of trips he offers are available year round and you only need to choose how long you want to stay.

Capt. Elliot will take you on a spacious 40’ Tiara that accommodates up to 9 guests. The captain takes much pride in this boat and for a good reason: she’s equipped with brand new navigational electronics, has lots of seating space, a private bathroom with a shower, a master suite with AC, a TV, a kitchen, and lots of storage space. Needless to say, a ride on this boat is a true pleasure.

You’ll mostly visit nearshore and offshore fishing spots, depending on the length of the trip you chose and fish species you want to target. Some of the main catches are Mahi Mahi, Tuna, Amberjack, Barracuda, and Lingcod. Check with the captain what’s in season and what’s the best way to catch it.

You’ll be provided with Shimano and Penn fishing equipment and they are included in the price. There are some things you need to prepare before the trip starts – purchase your fishing license, bring snacks and drinks, get live bait at the bait barge in the harbor (if you want to use it). The cost of live bait is typically around $60 + tip.

The cost of fuel is not included in the trip price and will be additionally paid according to the current price per gallon. The round trip backside of Catalina Island fishing for 8-12 hours and back to Newport Beach burns about 135 gallons of diesel fuel. For up to 7 hours of fishing the total fuel burn is about 55 gallons. For up to 4 hours the total fuel burn is about 28 gallons.

Bring your friends and family along and start your Orange Coast adventure. With Tranquillo Bay LLC, there’s enough room for everybody.

Captain Elliott has been fishing since childhood and professionally guiding fishing trips for the past 3 years. With an educated and dedicated captain like he is, you can expect to learn a lot about the area, the ocean and the outdoors from him. Also, sightings of dolphins and whales are almost sure to happen. Elliott is a 100-ton master and one of his plans is to participate more in fishing tournaments.
