Finnautical Sportfishing and Harbor Cruise

Fishing is a passion that I would like to share with you. I have fished the SoCal Coast waters from Chanel Islands to Baja and offshore from Catalina Island to San Clemente Island and Santa Barbara Island for the past 10 years on a constant basis. I have recently retired and am now focusing my time on my passion for the water.

My boat can comfortably fish 4 anglers locally and 3 offshore. The boat can fish with more anglers, but this allows the clients more comfort and room to fish. Depending on the season, we can fish from the Break Wall, Inshore reefs, Catalina, or offshore for trophy fish. Local Lobster trips are available for 3 passengers.

Expect to target Dorado, Barracuda, Halibut, Tuna, California Sheephead, Rockfish, Bass, Lobster, and more, depending on the season and the type of trip. Fish caught during the trip are yours to take home, so long as they’re within the legal limit.

Bring your fishing license, food, and drinks, and enjoy the beautiful waters of Southern California. Beer is allowed in cans only. No hard alcohol, glass bottles, or drugs are permitted. Children are welcome.

Not into fishing? Not a problem! Come on out for a beautiful harbor cruise with up to 6 people!  Create lasting memories. The Los Angeles ports are breathtaking. Cruise past the iconic Queen Mary, The Long Beach Waterfront, and the always gorgeous Naples Canals. Many restaurants and bars are located along these waterfronts with docks to tie to, for quick bite or drink.  During these cruises, you will enjoy seeing the wild life our waters are home to. Seals, Dolphins, whales and the many species of birds are a joy to watch.  Kids love these cruises, and will remember their great time on the water. These trips can be modified to your needs.

Book your trip with Finnautical Sportfishing and experience these waters like never before!
