The Smoothest, Fastest Ride...
To Get the Biggest, Baddest Fish.
Go for the glory & hunt one hundred pound plus tuna far off shore of sunny San Diego.
Or go bottom fishing from the deck for tasty rockfish in shallow waters... whatever floats your boat.

No matter your preferred fishing adventure, or angling skill level, you have come to the right place for the hands down best fishing experience in San Diego.
Here's Why We Can Confidently Say
You Will Have the Fishing Adventure
of a Lifetime
with Us
Reel Life Fishing prides itself as a fishing charter that caters to a limited number of guests - up to 5 at a time. Our captain is a lifelong fisherman who brings fishing expertise and an authentic desire to deliver a memorable trip to each of his guests. There's also a deckhand to help with logistics and reeling in your catches.

And then there's the boat, a Boston Whaler.
This is not the smaller fishing craft frequenting the waters off San Diego.

She's an angling boat and cabin cruiser hybrid. She's super fast. Super smooth. And she glides over the choppiest waters.

You will get out to sea faster so you spend more time doing what you want: fishing. You'll come back feeling great, not beat up by the sea like on smaller boats.

What Our Guests Say
"I've been out with Daniel on four trips now and it's always a great time no matter what time of year. Daniel's aggressive in finding the fish and put's the customer's experience before trying to make an extra buck. I've fished with a number of sub par captains over the years. This includes captains not wanting to burn fuel, insufficient bait, and lousy gear on board. This isn't the case with Daniel as he take's pride in delivering a good all around experience. He's a knowledgeable fishing guide and willing to assist in whatever way possible to bring home the fish. Can't wait to get back out on Reel Life for a day of fishing."

I thank you and I look forward to seeing you again my friend!! So if your looking to see what kind of reviews he has before you book a trip with him.

"Captain Daniel is a hard working and fun captain. Many captains forget you are there to have fun and catch fish!! Daniel does both as long as there is opportunity to catch, he will work hard and find it. Can't wait for more trips!!"
