Salvay Pacific Sportfishing

1880 Harbor Island Drive
San Diego CA, United States

Salvay Pacific Sportfishing operates out of San Diego, CA, offering tailored fishing adventures to suit any taste, targeting anything from Rockfish and Seabass, to Halibut, Marlin and Tuna. The waters off San Diego are famous for their amazing size and quantity of Tuna, and the guys at Salvay Pacific know all the top spots and tricks for pulling in the very best the ocean has to offer.

You will be fishing aboard the “Hawk”, a 30 ft Crystaliner sportfisherman which was completely overhauled in 2016. She has space aboard for up to 4 anglers and is powered by twin 210HP Cummins engines up to a cruising speed of 25 knots. The vessel comes equipped with GPS, fishfinder, outriggers, downriggers, a livewell, and everything you will need for the perfect day of fishing. The “Hawk” also boasts a large flybridge to lounge on between bites, as well as a comfortable interior complete with a galley, head, 4 beds, and plenty of space to relax out of the sun after a hard fought battle up on deck.

Salvay Pacific Sportfishing offers a range of trips designed to give everyone their perfect day on the water. Spend a half day fishing the local waters for some delicious table fish, go offshore for a full day doing battle with huge Tuna, head out overnight to the outer banks in search of Yellowtail Amberjacks and Seabass - no matter what you’re after, you’ll find it here!

Salvay Pacific is a full time operation spending over 200 days a year out on the water, and so is able to offer fishing experiences most charters aren’t, including a comprehensive billfish program. They pride themselves in their top-of-the-line fishing equipment, as well as their world class crew, and they bring these together with one of the best vessels in the state to create the ultimate fishing experience!
