Faith Sportfishing provides all-inclusive high-end local and long range fishing trips out of Marina Cortez, San Diego. With a dedicated crew that will pull out all the stops for fishing trips ranging from half a day to ten days, this is an outfitter that will cut no corners, whatever trip you choose.
FAITH is a 58 ft custom built long range sportfisher capable of going where the fish are. Built to fish very long distances, the boat’s large fuel tanks allow her to take long-range multiday trips in her stride.
Redesigned for fishing charters by the captain, she features three staterooms, two bathrooms, air conditioning, and a comfortable salon with a 32 inch flatscreen TV with surround sound. Not only will Faith get you to the fish, she will ensure your comfort while doing so.
You will be provided with high-quality, well-maintained tackle to use on your trip, ranging from 6 to 130lbs. You will also be supplied with appropriate bait and lures for the fish you are targeting - everything from Marlin trolling lures to jigs and casting lures is taken onboard.
The great range of options does not stop at the tackle. Trips start at half days in the local waters and go up to multiday adventures down to Mexico’s Baja California, fishing famous spots like Punta Colonet and Mag Bay. All with an attentive, professional, and knowledgeable crew.
Each and every trip comes inclusive with the captain, a deckhand, and a cook, who will prepare appropriate meals for the trip type you are taking. One case of beer per day will be provided for your enjoyment, and with culinary options ranging from continental breakfast to sushi to steak, as well as copious snacks, drinks, cakes, and pies, you will be in for a treat. You will gain weight on these trips!
Fishing licenses and Mexican visas are not included in the trip price - please be sure to arrange these for yourself before your trip.

I have to say without exception, this was the most professional team I have ever encountered on a fishing trip in the ocean.
When we first entered the boat, we were greeted with smiles and introductions, and led into the cabin for shrimp and ribs along with finger foods and dip. Yes, the beer was cold!! The hospitality was great and made the women on the trip very happy. Most noteworthy was the close attention the 1st mate paid to my son in law and myself. He was aggressive and always made sure we had live bait on the hook and we were handling the rods (we are inexperienced) with continuous instruction. John the Captain provided us with a boat that was state of the art and in excellent and clean condition. We did not catch many fish as the ocean was a bit rough, but I hooked into some sea bass around 30 to 40 lbs, but due to my inexperience I was unable to land them, but the fight they gave me was exciting. I can not say enough about the professionalism, hospitality, and eagerness of the crew to make our trip enjoyable and safe. John’s knowledge of this part of the ocean took us to many of the places where fish just are waiting for some live bait. I believe the rough ocean and our inexperience contributed to not catching many fish, but I can tell you the next time I go fishing in SD, I will be contracting with John Guess, a premiere boat Captain that has earned my admiration and respect for a great boat, his knowledge of the fishing grounds, and a tremendous crew. Thanks John for an exciting and relaxing trip. See you next year!!!
