California Dawn is a 50-foot fiberglass sport fishing vessel, running out of Berkeley in the San Francisco Bay Area. California Dawn is powered by twin diesel engines, features the latest in marine electronics, scanning sonar, large bait capacity, a heated cabin, and a full galley with a variety of delicious meals prepared by Chef Marc Reis.
California Dawn is captained by second generation charter operator Captain James Smith. Captain James has been fishing the San Francisco Bay Area since 1985 and is US Coast Guard Certified to 100 Miles. His knowledge of the Bay, along with his experienced and friendly crew, will guarantee everyone the ultimate fishing experience.
California Dawn runs open party full day trips nearly year round, but is also available for charter. We offer the highest quality fishing rods for rent, as well as tackle for purchase. Our fishing experts on board curate the tackle based off of the fish in season, weather, water temperature, and more.
