Dana Wharf Sportfishing—Boardroom 2

Dana Wharf Sportfishing aims to provide a memorable fishing trip to both local anglers and visitors alike, while at the same time showing what makes the Orange Country coastline such a popular destination. Whether you plan on going on a trip with your friends, family, or business partners, the crew is there to tailor the experience to your individual needs.

Your boat will be the Boardroom II - a 23’ Parker that’s powered by a single 300 HP Yamaha engine. It’s got plenty of room for up to four prospective anglers to fish in comfort, as well as all the necessary safety and navigation gear needed for a safe and productive trip.

If you find yourself in this part of California, Dana Point is one of the best locations for you to fish out of. Mahi Mahi, Calico Bass, Halibut, Barracuda, and Rockfish are just some of the species you can expect to encounter nearshore. There’s also a lot of wildlife closer to the shoreline, including whales, dolphins, California sea lions, and harbor seals.

The price of a trip includes rods, reels, as well as terminal tackle and complimentary drinks and snacks. The crew will clean and fillet your catch once the trip is over so you don’t have to. Bring a valid fishing license and a pair of polarized sunglasses and you’re good to go and get yourself some fish.
