Item Description

This package includes a sportsfishing trip for (6) Fisherman to enjoy in local waters from 5AM-5PM with all fishing gear included as well life jackets. 

Guests are allowed to bring food and drinks, including alcoholic beverages, aboard for their excursion. 

Embarking out of Newport Harbor California (Daveys Locker), Bongos Sportfishing offers a variety of fishing excursions to Catalina or San Clemente Island in search of the area’s finest fish. Our staff of experienced professionals, including Captain Ben Knight, will assist and can accomodate the inexperienced or most advanced anglers.

Bongos offers two boats, a 38ft Tiara and a 38ft Topaz.  The Topaz is preferable if the wind is up due to its weight but both boats are basically the same in all respects. 

(All ages are welcome on this trip).
