San Clemente Island (Overnight 4-Pack Charters)

Trip Summary

The specialty that is the Parker 3420 aka ‘the mothership’ and her crew is the main reason why we offer this trip. This boat is run by one of the best dynamic duos in the industry. You will be taken care the entire trip, you will laugh until your stomach hurts and you will yoke on big fish. It is sincerely a dreamy California 4-pack fishing charter experience.

We personally run these trips a couple of times a year simply to get out into the California offshore scene and pick-off a few good fish… we suggest that you do the same.

Trip Inquiry Process

The booking process starts with you completing a simple form. You can start with a question or you can tell us that you are ready to book… it is easy and painless.
