Tour description provided by Viator

Enjoy a day of deep-sea fishing off the California coast and try to catch a coveted yellowtail or white sea bass. This full-day cruise from Newport Beach will take you into fish territory, where you’re likely to find the most prized catches. Cruise down Orange County's coastline and take in the beautiful scenery while experiencing the fishing adventure!

Set out from Newport Harbor for a day of deep-sea fishing in the Pacific Ocean. The crew on board your boat will help you set up your rod so you’ll be ready to reel in that yellowtail when it nibbles on your hook. Yellowtail can weigh up to 40 pounds (18 kg) and are known to be hardest-fighting fish you’ll encounter in these waters! Other fish you may catch include white sea bass, barracuda, bonito, calico bass, sand bass and halibut.

While you wait for the fish to bite, relax on board the boat and take in the coastal scenery as you cruise past Long Beach, Newport Beach, Huntington Beach, Catalina Island, Dana Point and San Ononfre. The boat has a fully stocked snack bar with breakfast, lunch, snacks and beverages available for purchase. The boat also has both indoor and outdoor seating, along with restrooms.

If you catch a fish of legal size (see Additional Information below for more details) and you want to make a meal out of it, you may have your fish filleted on board for a nominal fee. Only want to fish? No worries – simply catch and release!

Don't want to fish but want to come along for the sail? Boarding passes are also available for purchase.

Please note: due to maintenance, the ship will be in dry dock until the end of February 2014.
