Half-Day Local Sport Fishing Trip from San Diego

Half-Day Local Sport Fishing Trip from San Diego

There are a lot of options to go fishing in San Diego. Of course, a lot of people opt to spend less than $50 and go on an open party boat with about 40 other anglers. We are the opposite of that scenario. We offer PRIVATE charters that consist of only the people in your party and nobody else. You will have plenty of elbow room, and you will not have to compete with 30 other people for the attention of the Captain, Crew, or fish. It is worth the extra money to join us on a six-pack private charter. Capt Ling will give you one on one attention, and if you are a beginner, he will help you learn the basics of fishing. If you hook the big one, he will be right behind you to give you a helping hand to land the fish. Once you book a private charter with us, you will never settle for shared public open party boats again. Come and see the difference. See you on the water.
