I took my family on a trip to San Diego. We have not really been away since 2019 because of covid. One of my personal bucket list activities was Sport Fishing. Of course my three girls, boy and wife were not thrilled with the idea. They were worried about getting sea sick being grossed out by the fish ect.. They all joined me in the end. It was an amazing trip. Captain Chris was not available but Captain Nick was and he really took amazing care of us. Everyone in the family caught a fish and we ended up with seven we could keep and eat. Deck hand Matt fillet the fish for us while we headed back to the marina. Amazing. The be entire experience was one my family will not forget. If you ever want to go sport fishing you must use Coletta Sport fishing.

We went deep sea fishing as a family (2 adults, 3 teens), and Captain Chris made all the reservation/preparation work so easy with very clear communication. We were assigned Captain Mike for our day at sea, and he was also great to work with. Our original day was rescheduled due to bad weather, and we were able to rebook for two days later at 6am. Our day at sea was a choppy one, with rain and wind. We had 1 seasick kid (yes we took Dramamine well ahead of time), and the fish were in no mood to bite. Coming from MN, we fully understand that the fish aren’t always biting and sometimes you only catch a fish or two. While we didn’t have the kind of day we hoped for, it was by no means for a lack of trying on Captain Mike’s part. He put his best foot forward and never stopped trying to find us fish. Towards the end of our time, he decided to turn our attention towards fining dolphins (we found a huge pod), and we even found 3 grey whales. Talk about redeeming a difficult trip! We’d absolutely book them again!

Thank you for your kind words. The weather was a challenge on the week of your trip, but because of your flexibility and a small break in the weather we were able to get you and your family out. Thanks for your understanding about the fishing being the slow side. As you can see we do everything we can to get the fish t bite but some times they are not aggressive at all. Seeing a huge pod of dolphins and migrating whales is always an amazing experience to behold. Its amazing to watch them play and move thru the water. Thanks again for everything and look forward in talking soon. Happy Holidays!

The sole reason for our trip was for my 10yr old to catch some fish. Researched charters across the nation for 2 months and landed on Coletta as the best option. Even then, I was skeptically, since this was the first time we chartered a fishing trip, but this was the best choice I think I’ve ever made. Chris and Trevor were on the boat and were absolutely outstanding, professional and my son felt like he had two new fishing buddies. Few businesses live up to reviews or what they say on their website, but Coletta does. We had a blast and caught lots of fish. I’ll book with Coletta again and only Coletta. They’ve earned my business for life.

We chartered the Swell Chaser for an afternoon fishing trip. The entire family had a blast, most of all our 7 year old, who was fishing for the first time. The crew was very professional, patient and welcoming, particularly great with kids! We caught over 15 fish and the experience was the highlight of our trip. Highly recommend for a family outing!

Julia, Thanks for your kind words and taking the time in writing such a heart felt review. It is important to all of us that the families especially the first time junior angler's (fisherman boys or girls) are treated with kid gloves and shown some of the important things about fishing at that level and equally important catch some fish in the process. Your son did amazingly well on catching some quality fish for his first time. From what you shared your boy really had a great first time fishing and from my experience that memory will last him a life time. I still to this day think of my dad and the times we spent fishing when I was your boys age and that's over 50 years now. Thanks again for everything and choosing Coletta Sport Fishing for your sons first fishing adventure. Happy Holidays!
