San Diego Charters – 26' Shamrock

San Diego Charters has the newest addition to their fleet, which lets them take you even farther on your fishing trip. You may have already taken a bay or inshore tour with Capt. Kevin and his team, but this time, you get to explore offshore grounds and Coronado Islands. Catching big game pelagic species just got more real!

All of this is possible thanks to the new 26’ Shamrock boat. “The Second Lady” is a sportfishing machine, designed specifically for deeper grounds. She has a spacious layout, which gives lots of usable fishing space. The boat is powered by a 260 HP Cummins engine, which allows more fishing time on the grounds.

There’s enough room for 4 anglers to fish in comfort. One part of the boat is covered, so you’ll stay protected from both sun and rain, if the weather becomes too much. You’ll also find a small private toilet on board.

Target pelagic species, such as Mahi Mahi, Tuna, Bonito, Yellowtail Amberjack, and many Rockfish species. Each trip is customized to what is in season and the type of experience your group wants to have.

With your fishing equipment, catch cleaning, snacks, and drinks covered by the captain, there’s not a lot of preparations from your end. Just purchase your fishing license, charge your camera, and don’t forget your sunscreen.

The trips with San Diego Charters got even more exciting. Take a peek of these offshore adventures and share them with your loved ones!
