3/4-Day Fishing Charter From Dana Point

Join us today for an exciting day of fishing on the sparkling Southern California waters departing from Dana Point Harbor. Our 3/4 day, nine-hour trip (6 a.m. – 3 p.m.) is our most popular time frame fishing the local waters of Orange County. **Dana Wharf never charges a FUEL SURCHARGE.

If you see a fishing trip that is departing at 5 a.m. these are limited load trips returning at 3 p.m. THESE TUNA FISHING CHARTERS will be on the DANA PRIDE, SUM FUN or CLEMENTE and will be fishing offshore and will not be anchoring. You will be drifting all day. There are no coupons, Groupons or any other discounts available on this trip. THE LIMIT OF PASSENGERS IS 60 on the 100-passenger Dana Pride and 40 on the 60-passenger Sum Fun or Clemente. See the notes when you click on buy tickets for boat assignment.

Seasonal catches on our Dana Wharf fishing trips include halibut, barracuda, yellowtail, white sea bass, sand bass, calico bass, bonito, and tuna.

  • Learn from our knowledgeable, family-friendly crew and skippers who expertly guide you throughout this fun-filled excursion.
  • Bask in the breathtaking views of Dana Point Harbor’s serene beaches and scenic shorelines from the deck of one of our fleet’s top-of-the-line boats!
  • Cool down with a cold beer, soda, and more in our full-service galley. Hungry? Both snacks and hot food are available!


1/2 PRICE TUESDAYS all year round! Half price off of the usual adult fare. (Please note that Tuesday trips generally sell out, so for a less crowded boat please book a full-priced ticket for a different day of the week)
