Dana Wharf Sportfishing - Current

The stated goal of Dana Wharf Sportfishing is to provide a unique experience to locals and visitors alike while showing all the wonders of the Orange County coastline. The crew is made up of local professionals that will make sure the trip is tailored to your particular needs and wants.

You’ll be fishing on the Current, a 53’ Hatteras that’s powered by a pair of 1400 HP Detroit engines. The boat boasts a spacious and comfortable interior, to ensure you have a fun and relaxing trip. It contains a full array of safety gear and navigation electronics so you can just lay back and enjoy the fishing.

Dana Point is one of the nicest areas to be fishing in when it comes to this part of California. Species like Mahi Mahi, Barracuda, Calico Bass, Halibut, and Rockfish are all waiting for you to come along. The waters are also home to a variety of wildlife for you to see - whales, dolphins, harbor seals, and California sea lions.

Rods, reels, and terminal tackle are included in the price of a trip, along with complimentary snacks and drinks. The crew will clean and fillet the catch for your convenience once the trip is over. Bring a pair of polarized sunglasses, and get ready for the fishing trip of a lifetime!
