The warm sun, the salty sea, and the fish ready to bite—there’s nothing quite like a fishing adventure on the California coast. Riptide Charters takes both individuals and groups for adventures in sport fishing in Half Moon Bay, a short drive from San Francisco, CA.
Whether it’s your first time fishing or you’re an old salt, we can take you to the best spots for a catch. Our customers often catch salmon, ling cod, tuna, and rock fish.
Each charter boat specialist can customize the fishing tour to meet the specific needs of your group. We can even provide food or beverage on request.
In addition, we also offer dignified sea burial. If you would like to lay your loved one to rest in the ocean, we can handle all the burial details. We have served people of many different religions and work with several mortuaries in the area. We also have a certified cremains disposer license.
