Default Looking for a saltwater charter for family outing

We're intermediate anglers with a few years experience on "party boats" out of Longbeach and SD looking for a charter to take 10 of us out for day. Half of that will be people just along for the ride (kids, wives). No particular species we're after, but prefer pelagic. Any recommendations? We'd like to book something for the week of 4th of July (after the holiday).

10 is going to be tough (expensive). There's 6-pack captains and 20+ boats. Not much between.

Might find a 6-pack for the fishers and something else for the non-fishers. Pelagic trips generally aren't much fun for non-fishers.

The san diego fleet is a pretty solid choice. The liberty out of fishermans landing does day trips and usually fishes the coronado islands or is chasing tuna and it looks like they have open spots for the timeframe you are looking for. They got limits of bluefin today in the 20 - 40 lb range.

Does it have to be a private charter? Or can you all jump on the same open party trip together?

The Jig Strike, out of H&M I believe, is a 15 passenger charter boat.

Thanks for the recommendations, I'll keep calling around.

The wives/mothers want to relax, they're not fans of the frenetic nature of party boats. When the bite is on, a lot of people lose their heads and forget about common manners even towards ladies and kids.

It's a bit of a haul, but Channel Islands Sportfishing has several boats that fit the bill. https://www.channelislandssportfishi...charter-boats/

Another vote for Channel Islands Sportfishing. The Aloha Spirit is good boat and has a limit of 10 passengers. Just book/buy all ten tickets for one day, much cheaper than chartering it. Not sure if you'll have to buy rod rental and licenses for the non-fishing though. Good fishing and free parking.

10 people is the deal breaker. Not enough unless you pay min charter fees. Can get on limited load boat but now that bluefin are in range you are way late. Why no research on this and wait till last minute?

Awesome boat and crew, but they fish more than ten for sure.

Outrider would work here, along with Fortune, Aztec, Tribute, Pacfic Voyager, Liberty, San Diego, and Pacific Dawn.

Ditch the non fishermen and charter a 6 pack and save bank. Send the rest on a picnic. They will have more fun.
