You'll also see Dolphins galore. We see many types of dolphins - common, Risso's, and bottle-nosed - all year long! Don't forget your camera, as schools of playful dolphins often frolic around the boat! All cruises are narrated by our seasoned captains who will educate you on the abundant ocean life on our coast.
Sport Fishing: Our landing caters to the novice as well as the seasoned ﬁshermen. Our 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. They include Halibut, Barracuda, Yellowtail, White Sea Bass, Sand Bass, Calico Bass, Bonito, and even Tuna. You never know what you might reel in, and that is part of the magic of ﬁshing.
Our vessels are clean, and they 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. A day license for anyone over 16 years of age is required. Come join us for an adventure you will never forget.
