The Cortez is a 65 foot sport fishing vessel specializing in both open party and private sport fishing charters from Southern California to Baja Mexico. The Cortez comfortably accommodates groups of up to 23 passengers on overnight and multi-day fishing trips, and up to 43 passengers on local 1/2 day, 3/4 day, and full day trips. On offshore fishing trips, the Cortez targets fish species such as yellowfin tuna, bluefin tuna, albacore tuna, bigeye tuna, yellowtail, dorado, and more. On the local day trips, the Cortez targets a variety of San Diego’s local fish species such as bass, white sea bass, barracuda, yellowtail, bonito, rockfish, and more. The Cortez is also available for open party and private whale watching excursions as well as any custom charters.
The CORTEZ sport fishing vessel is much quieter and faster after newly installed engines and generator in 2005. With these improvements you will get more fishing time where the fish are. Additional improvements include Full Scanning Sonar, 3 GPS plotters, and radar; to keep you on the fish. They can run, but they can’t hide.
The CORTEZ offers an air-conditioned spacious salon and sleeping accommodations, along with hot showers. While the Cortez can accommodate up to 43 passengers on short fishing trips or 23 on overnight and multi-day fishing trips, we welcome smaller groups too. For little more than the cost to charter a smaller boat for a group of 6 anglers, those 6 fishermen can enjoy the un-crowded rails and large bait capacity of our 65 foot fishing vessel.
The CORTEZ will keep your catch fresh with a spray brine refrigerated fish-hold. Fishing tackle is readily available and, if needed, expert advice from a friendly, experienced crew dedicated to making each trip memorable.
The expert galley crew provides a variety of delicious meals and snacks, always prepared from the freshest and finest ingredients. We will always try our best to accommodate any special food requests, tackle requests, or anything else that you and your group might need.
