What you'll do
We pack your locally sourced hot breakfast & lunch which you will enjoy on the water overlooking the islands and coasts of the area, and all your tackle, bait and gear, and take you into the heart of the San Francisco Bay. Whether you are a master angler in search of a dialed in fishing boat to get you on the fish, a beginner looking to gain technique and build skills, or a foodie nature lover ready for wildlife sightings, unique landscapes views and the freshest seafood you will ever encounter, or a visitor wanting the insider tour of The SF Bay, we customize your perfect day at sea. You will cruise through the bay and along the coast, stopping for stunning photo ops, casting at secret local fishing spots, while learning the history and biology of the Bay Area. We will be on the lookout for whales & dolphins, and sightsee the San Francisco City Skyline, The Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz Island, Angel Island and the Marin Headlands, and send you home with your full share of professionally filleted Halibut, Striped Bass or King Salmon, and a lasting connection to a local captain and professional fishing boat that is your ticket to the true Bay Area experience.
I’m Captain Adam Sewall & I've been a top of the SF Bay fleet professional fisherman for over 10 years. I run a successful commercial Dungeness Crab, Halibut & King Salmon boat out of the Berkeley Marina. I created Gatherer Outfitters to bring the wild beauty & breathtaking adventures of the Pacific into peoples lives. Many of the best features of the San Francisco Bay Area are only accessible by boat, and its waters are studded with treasured seafood only the top local fisherman can find. I have an ideal fishing boat and all the knowledge to guide my clients on the perfect Bay Area fishing adventure.
