BRINK Expeditions

(14) Just booked!

BRINK Expeditions is a charter company that specializes in spearfishing, sportfishing and providing guests with unique, custom-tailored ocean adventures. Their passion for the wonders found beneath the waves is a matter of pride. They feel strongly about continuing the traditions of ocean stewardship and sustainable harvest of the resources within the Pacific Ocean.

Their boat is a 34’ Luhrs offshore sportfisher that runs on a pair of 315 HP Yanmar engines. As you’d expect for such a vessel, she’s equipped with top-of-the-line Simrad navigation electronics and a full array of safety gear. Comfort is another thing that’s taken seriously aboard this boat. With an air-conditioned interior and toilet, this boat ensures a comfy ride even on longer trips.

Being based in San Diego offers a number of advantages. The proximity to both US and Mexican waters ensures the widest range of fishing opportunities for anglers of all skill levels. Some of the target species include Bluefin and Yellowfin Tuna, Dorado, Yellowtail, Bonito, Wahoo, White Seabass, Calico Bass, Halibut, Sheepshead and more.

The way you tackle these fish is completely up to you. The BRINK Expeditions crew provides not only tournament-grade tackle, but they’ve got everything you need for a spearfishing trip. With custom 65” Tuna guns, you’ll have the best chance at getting some good shots in.

Not only is all the gear included, but so are fish cleaning services after the trip. All you need to do is swing by San Diego and go get that dream catch of yours!

Captain Ryan has been lake fishing since he was able to walk. His passion for the ocean lead him to spend 4 years as a board member of The San Diego Freedivers spearfishing club, including President. He jumps at the chance to fight for recreational fishing access rights whenever possible and has been involved with both the CA MLPA process and the ongoing threats of closure at The Children's Pool in La Jolla. The rest of the team is likewise filled with avid freedive spear fishermen, rod and reel fishermen, kayakers, scuba divers, swimmers and other aqua adventurers. They'll make sure everybody on the boat is having fun, making cherished memories and has the best chances of catching fish!
