Fishing Charters Of San Diego

Fishing Charters Of San Diego offers anything from mild to wild! Spend a perfect family-friendly day out on the water or head out offshore for the adrenaline-high trip. Join the crew that spent over 40 years fishing the waters of Southern California! With decades of professional experience, they can easily accommodate anyone, from a beginner level to a big game angler looking for his new record.

The adventure starts on a 36’ Hatteras boat that accommodates up to 6 guests. Bring your loved ones and share the fun. Even if someone from your group isn’t enthusiastic about fishing, they can enjoy their time on the boat. With an enclosed cabin, a bedroom, a private bathroom, and a kitchen, this boat has all the comfort of a home. They can enjoy the view from the flybridge or sunbathe at the front deck. The vessel is also wheelchair accessible.

Choose whether you want to stay closer to the shore and explore calm waters or head out to the depths, where the real predators live. Inshore and nearshore trips will get you White Seabass, Rockfish, Halibut, and Shark, while offshore tours can take you after Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Marlin, and more.

Each trip can be customized, so choose your target and fishing technique. The captain will do his best to meet your expectation.

All fishing equipment, snacks, and drinks are included in the price. Make sure to purchase your fishing license and pack some sun protection.

It all started with my dad as a kid. I always loved being on the water and catching anything I could. Over the last 40 years, I’ve made fishing my life. I’ve been fishing the waters of Southern California on anything from tiny boats to luxury Sportfishing yachts. Inshore or offshore there’s no place I’d rather be. Running charters for families and big game anglers allows me to share my passion for fishing. The variety of species and anglers keeps it exciting.
