For those that are more adventurous, you can venture further offshore on a deep sea fishing adventure. Deep sea fishing in San Diego usually takes anglers pretty far off the coast but the time spent to get to open water, lands bigger fish. There are many great options of fishing charter that can be booking in San Diego for deep sea fishing, just search through the listings and contact a few charters for custom quotes.

We recommend you check with your guide to find out the kinds of amenities they may provide, for example:

 • Tackle

    Fun Boating in San Diego (Mission Bay) with 23' Yamaha room for 10!!!

    Loved our trip! Paul was having fun and laughing with our bachelorette party! A group of guys on a boat pulled up along side us and started hanging out with us for a little while and he double checked with us girls that we were comfortable with them swinging by. So kind of him to check on us that we weren't being creeped out and that we were comfortable.. We also saw a sea lion that was suffering with a hook stuck in its mouth and we were all upset and Paul took care of contacting Sea World Rescue to help the sea lion! Thanks so much for everything Paul! 5 stars!

    Fun Boating in San Diego (Mission Bay) with 23' Yamaha room for 10!!!

    Paul is wonderful! A group of friends and I rented his boat for two hours and it was a blast. He took us to see sea lions and we were able to go swimming. He was super laidback, fun, and great with communication. Awesome value - 100% recommend booking with him!

    19' Avon RIB w/ Yamaha 115 engine in San Diego, California!

    We had the best time out on John’s boat today. John took us out to the wrecks off Mission Beach for some scuba diving. The boat seemed just built for that purpose. We had a lot of fun altogether and it really was a great experience in any possible way.

    Fun Boating in San Diego (Mission Bay) with 23' Yamaha room for 10!!!

    Paul was extremely cooperative and booked our last minute reservation hassle free. We fit all our guests no problem and enjoyed a brisk evening cruise with up close seal sightings, night swim, and music on a nice sound system. Couldnt be happier especially for the price. Thanks again!

My party of 6 were taken cared for; he gave us a awesome tour around the bay, showed us the seals, and we even took a dive for a little bit. Thank you for everything; will definitely call yu next time.
