Cast your line off the Orange County shore on a 5-hour fishing trip from Dana Point with an experienced crew. Bring your own gear, or rent a rod and reel onboard, then experience the remarkable diversity of fish that flock to the Pacific coast. Beginning and experienced fishermen can bait their hooks for halibut, yellowtail, barracuda, bonito, tuna and bass, with tips from locals who know all of Dana Point’s finest spots.
What to Expect
Have you ever wanted to go ocean fishing but thought it was only for professionals? This trip offers fishing excursions all year long and anyone can go – young, old, experienced or those out for the first time. The tour caters to the novice as well as the seasoned angler. A knowledgeable crew and expert skippers are always eager to help educate and instruct, if needed. The types of fish available to catch vary depending on the season and water temperature.

Bait will be provided with your ticket, but please be sure to purchase your fishing license prior to the trip. You vessel will offer a full galley with hot and cold food. Beer, soda, chips and candy are available for purchase (sorry, no coolers can be brought aboard the boat). If you do not have fishing gear, rods and reels are available to rent onsite. Come join an adventure you will never forget!
