At Big C Charters we love people. We just limit the number of them to maximize the opportunities for everyone to catch fish. We put you on top of the fish, not on top of each other. We also think two boats are better than one. Together both boats can cover a broad swath of ocean, sharing intel and doubling the chance of finding that hot bite.

‘I decided to book a trip with a professional for the first time to see how they fish. I originally picked Big C because he consistently gets early limits. I know this because I’ve witnessed him leaving the fishing grounds with limits while I was still working on catching my first fish.’

Chris Armstrong

FAQs

What time do we leave?

Whale watching trips depart at 8:00am, half day trips return by noon, and full day trips return by 3:00pm. Fishing trips depart at 5:30am and return by 3:00pm.

What should I wear?

Dress in layers. It’s typically cold in the morning and warms up as the day goes on. Pants, jackets and sneakers are best. Don’t forget sunscreen and sunglasses! Binoculars are a great addition for the whale watching trips, if you have some! 


Do I need a fishing license?

Yes, purchase your one day license for $17.54 at https://wildlife.ca.gov/Licensing/Fishing

Will I catch a fish?

Our success rate is extremely high and we limit the amount of passengers to increase the odds of YOU catching a fish. However, it’s never a guarantee. We will give it our all to ensure you go home happy.

What if I get seasick?

If prone to seasickness, we suggest you take dramamine prior to arrival (1-2 hours).

Should I bring food?

Yes. Bring whatever you would like to eat or drink for the day.

Can I bring alcohol?

Beer and wine is allowed, but we have a strict no hard alcohol policy.

Are your trips family friendly?

We provide a fun, family friendly atmosphere and would gladly welcome kids over the age of 5 on board for fishing and whale watching. (We recommend the half day for whale watching for children).
