About
San Diego fishing is REEL HOT right now! I’m Captain Mark, and whether you are brand new to fishing looking to land your first fish, have kids just learning the ropes, or a seasoned fisherman chasing a trophy, I will work tirelessly to get you on the fish. My boat holds up to 4 passengers for fishing. I offer a wide variety of trips to suit your adventure needs. On the local ½ Day (5.5 hours) or ¾ Day (9 hours) we will fish for Bonita, Yellowtail, Sand Bass, Calico Bass, Sheephead, Halibut, Sharks, Rockfish, and Ling Cod. My favorite trips are the ¾ or Full Day (12 Hours) down to the Coronado Islands, located down in Mexican waters, where we can go in search for the prized Yellowfin and Bluefin Tunas. There’s nothing better than the sound of the reel zinging with a fish on it! I am committed to ensuring you have a safe and memorable adventure. Additional charter options include; Whale Watching or Sunset Cruises around the bay, for up to 6 passengers. I look forward to hearing from you

We had a fantastic time deep sea fishing with Captain Mark on Boundless Boat Charters! This was our favorite activity on our recent trip to San Diego with my husband and 18 year old son. Mark was so much fun. He is a very easy going guy and he made us feel at home right away. His boat was comfortable and well maintained. We did a half day charter and he took us to several different spots. We caught a total of 23 fish and Mark was genuinely excited by each catch. His love of his job is obvious and we really enjoyed hanging out with him and catching fish. As a bonus, we also saw what had to have been hundreds of dolphins surrounding our boat and a couple of sea lions as well. We would highly recommend Boundless Boat Charters if you are looking for a fishing charter in San Diego. We will definitely book another fishing trip with Mark the next time we are in San Diego!

There was absolutely nothing we could say that would encompass the experience we had with captain Mark. We corresponded prior to our trip and knew it would be good but we had no idea how wonderful of a time we would have. This was a gift to our 7 year old who has the most active imagination and energy for days but was struggling with covid shutdowns and a military move. When we met up with captain mark, he delivered above and beyond the exemplary service he already met us with. He was patient with our son, taught him what to do, and was genuinely excited when we caught fish. He also got us as excited as the 7 year old. To my surprise, the boys pulled in a giant California yellowtail and there was so much encouragement and excitement that our 7 year old, fishing for the first time and coming from iowa where there’s no ocean, felt like he really did something incredible and that is the best gift that anyone could have given him. We are grateful for the experience, we had fun, we caught lots of fish, and the captain is an absolute gem of a person that gets along with every personality at any experience level. We’re ready to book our next trips. If you found this review because you read other great reviews of Boundless, just know that the hype is accurate af. 11/10 would fish again.

For our 10 and 12 year old sons' first ocean fishing trip we chose the 1/2 day family trip with Boundless Boat Charters. Our boys had an AWESOME time and the experience exceeded our expectations. Captain Mark is an expert fisherman and a great teacher. His patience and skill working with kids is first-rate. Our 12 year old pulled in a fish on his first try and for the rest of the afternoon our boys were "hooked". Our plan was to catch dinner and we did that and more! The weather and conditions could not have been better. For any parent that wants to take their young children on an ocean fishing trip, Boundless Boat Charters and Captain Mark will not disappoint!

My husband and children had a wonderful time fishing with Captain Mark. He was very attentive and spent time teaching my children how to use a fishing pole and when to reel in the line. The beginning of our trip, we had a hard time getting the fish to “bite” but eventually we found several nice spots and my older son caught a 5-6 lb calico sea bass! He was extremely happy. Overall, we had a wonderful time and would go fishing with Mark again when we return to San Diego for another family vacation!

My dad booked Boundless Boat Charters for two half days for four of us through Mark and what a blast it was! First upfront let me say that Mark was always in communication with us setting up trip making sure we get to the right marina etc. His prep before the trip was very helpful and Mark through out this experience was very professional and patient with us.

Our first day in the afternoon Mark walked us through the rods and reels and got us on a lot of rockfish and we were hoping for halibut or other fish but the rockfish were steady biting all afternoon. We moved around a lot looking for fish and it was a tough day but through it all Mark was engaged, constantly looking for fish, helping us bait rods, and just a fun guy to be around. After the day was over Mark cleaned all our fish on the way in and we set up for tomorrow.

The next day we started out catching some rock fish and Mark said we could take a gamble and go out farther since it was calm to hunt some Bluefin that they were catching. We said lets go. As we got to the area Mark said look out for birds, swells, or fish jumping. Literally ten minutes after that we were on to a large school of tuna and it was awesome! Mark told us exactly what to do and what to expect and he got us near the tuna and started baiting lines and BAM! 70 pounder on the line. Mark helped us out tremendously to get this fish in and it was truly a one of a kind experience for my family. We got it in the boat and had a crazy half day of fishing in the morning! What an experience!

Mark is professional, courteous, and an absolutely fantastic captain. Book your trip with him today, you won't regret it!

My family spent half the day with Captain Mark. We had such a great time fishing on a beautifully overcast day and nice calm waters. Mark worked hard on getting us fish. He was enthusiastic and knowledgeable about his “fishing grounds” and made it so easy! We caught a great haul and were very impressed by Mark’s expertise and care. Mark is such a friendly guy that we felt comfortable on his clean boat from the get-go. Our experience was definitely a positive one. Thank you, Mark! We had so much fun and would make this trip again! Highly recommend!

What an amazing journey! My request was to go out where it’s deep and away from the shore!! Mark gave this and more. He even included some patches of Marine layer, fog banks that would drift through and make for magical moments. The pod of dolphins we saw were new to me and danced around a bit giving us a sweet show. Craig and I so appreciate mark and his willingness to accommodate our wishes. Thanks for a wonderful afternoon!! We’ll be back for more! Traci Wood

This is our second trip with Captain Mark and OMG my son caught a 32 pound halibut and daughter caught a slew of beautiful smaller fish. That’s ultimately 100s of dollars of fish we went home with. Actually Mark is the one that deserves the credit for those but made my kids feel emboldened with their accomplishments. Then Dolphins playfully swam in our wake. It was truly magical and memorable! If you’re considering booking a trip...absolutely do it!

We had a great experience our first time fishing in the ocean. We started catching fish right away and had a steady bite all day catching a variety of species. Captain Mark was great throughout the entire process from start to finish. If you are looking for a relaxing and fun trip I highly recommend boundless boat charter's and take the opportunity to go fishing with Captain Mark.

Captain Mark provided my brother and I a great 12-hour fishing experience as we hoped for the opportunity to catch a Bluefin tuna in US and Mexican waters off the coast of San Diego. He had everything organized and directed us from clothing, sunscreen, licenses, visas, breakfast, deli sandwiches, drinks, snacks, bait, tackle, and high-tech navigation and fish finding equipment. He taught us the art of looking for kelp pods and how to bait, cast, and catch. We covered 110 miles during the day caught a 24 pound Bluefin tuna plus our limit of Yellowtails. He is a perfect gentleman and works hard to made sure we experienced the excitement of reeling in as many fighting fish of the Pacific as possible. He kept the lines baited as fast as we could reel them in and even took his turn at helping reel in the tuna as we were exhausted!!! Thanks for a great 67th birthday!
