King Triton Sportfishing

King Triton Sportfishing offers a year-round fishing adventure out of San Diego. Explore the West coast with the crew that loves their job. They have over 15 years of experience and still feel the passion and the drive as they did at the beginning of their careers.

Every guest gets a fair shot to catch their fish, regardless of their skill level. You just need to choose the trip that fits you best. If you’re a beginner or you’re bringing your kids along, it’s best to take a short trip, closer to the shore. On the other hand, hard-core anglers can take an overnight trip and battle the biggest fish there is in the area - Bluefin Tuna.

You’ll be fishing aboard a 38’ Phoenix boat that accommodates up to 6 anglers. This convertible is powered by twin 420 HP Caterpillar engines, which can get the boat to the speed of 24 knots. The boat certainly doesn’t lack any comfort, so you can enjoy an air-conditioned cabin, a lounge area, a private bathroom, a galley, and a room to lay down if you get too tired.

Besides Bluefin Tuna, as the most ambitious target, you can also go after Yellowfin Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Marlin, Amberjack, Barracuda, and White Seabass.

You only need to get your fishing license before the trip, while the crew takes care of everything else. They cover your fishing equipment, snacks, drinks, and catch cleaning service.

A day of adventure has never been closer! Join King Triton Sportfishing.
