Our Fishing Charter Services

Spend a half-day charter trip or travel with an open party to fish along the Golden Gate to the Pacific Ocean or San Pablo and San Francisco Bays. These are the most common areas explored, depending on where the best catch of the day is. We travel close enough to the shoreline to ensure the most breath-taking views of the California Coastline, Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz Island, and San Francisco waterfront. You never miss a catch or a sight when relying on our deep-sea fishing trips.

The availability of half-day trips makes it possible for tour-goers, families, and regular anglers in the local community to enjoy these open waters efficiently. Start your day with an incredible fishing trip with time to have a bite to eat and relax for the remainder of your day. Enjoy capturing the smaller schooling fish or land a trophy of the ocean for rewarding results.

Both seasoned anglers and novices are welcome on board. Children are encouraged to participate in our San Francisco fishing charter services to learn the ways of the water and have a fun time along the journey.

I can’t sing Captain Tom‘s praises enough! This is our second trip through Wild Wave with Tom and we have never been disappointed! Not only did my fiancé and I catch our limit on both trips, but Tom and his deckhands were so knowledgable and fun to be around! We would all pal around while waiting for hits – talking fishing, San Francisco, hobbies, pedicures, weddings, recipes, drinking, etc. It was such an easygoing morning. When we weren’t fighting monster fish, that is!

So much fun. Caught our limit had a great time lifelong memories. Very addicting. so cool to just fish in the Bay area looking at the Golden gate bridge and all the other sites what a treat. First class service. Captain Tom and Captain Mike are amazing.

It was my wife’s first time fishing after 25 years and she had so much fun and fell in love with fishing all over again. My son loves fishing as do I what a trip. So much fun.
