The Bounty Aboard the Impulse: A Guide to the Fish You Can Catch

Blue Fin Tuna: Often referred to as the “king” of the tuna species because of its size and fighting ability, the Blue Fin Tuna is a prize catch for many anglers aboard the Impulse. With its powerful runs and sheer strength, it’s a challenging and rewarding fish to land.

2. Yellow Fin Tuna: A close cousin to the Blue Fin, the Yellow Fin Tuna is famous for its distinctive yellow dorsal and anal fins. Though slightly smaller than its blue counterpart, it’s just as feisty and offers a thrilling fight.

3. Mahi Mahi (Dolphin Fish): With its dazzling colors and acrobatic leaps out of the water, the Mahi Mahi is an exciting catch any day. Apart from the sheer joy of reeling it in, it’s also highly prized for its delicate and flavorful meat.

4. Yellowtail: Especially popular during the summer months, the Yellowtail is a fighter. Renowned for its strong, fast runs and ability to dive deep, it provides anglers with a genuine challenge and an adrenaline-pumping experience.

5. Marlin: The majestic Marlin, with its iconic long bill and powerful physique, is every sport fisher’s dream. Catching one is not just about the thrill; it’s also a badge of honor.

6. Halibut: This bottom-dwelling flatfish might seem docile, but it can put up a surprisingly tough fight. Its mild, sweet-tasting flesh makes it a favorite among seafood lovers.

7. White Seabass: Known for its ghostly appearance and elusive nature, the White Seabass is a treat for any angler. It’s especially famous for its tender meat and is a staple in many gourmet dishes.

… and Many More: The waters around San Diego, where the Impulse sails, are teeming with a diverse array of marine life. Throughout the year, depending on the season and conditions, anglers can expect to encounter a variety of other species, each offering its own unique fishing experience.

With such a rich bounty of fish to target, every trip aboard the Impulse promises a unique adventure. Whether you’re a seasoned angler looking to add a prized catch to your list or a newbie eager to experience the thrill of the chase, the Impulse offers an unparalleled fishing experience in the heart of San Diego’s bountiful waters.

Go where you feel most alive.


Live life with no excuses, travel with no regret


None! The charter price includes the cost of the required license, bait, fish cleaning, beverages and food.

No. Please do not bring a cooler as they slide around when the boat moves and become dangerous. We provide all the soda, beer, and water you could possibly need and we can always fulfill special requests.

All of our boats come fully equipped with the necessary tackle but you may certainly bring your own.

Please arrive 30 minutes before any trips between ½ day and 5AM-to-5PM. For overnight or longer trips, please arrive approximately 1 hour before the scheduled departure time.

We suggest dressing in layers as early mornings tend to be chilly, but the temperatures rise as the day progresses. Sunblock and a hat are essential even on cloudy days and we always recommend bringing a camera. We do not recommend flip flops due to their slippery nature. Boots are more suitable but if you do not have boots, please wear something with a non-slick sole that can get wet. Also, if you are susceptible to seasickness, plan to take Bonine, Dramamine, or another similar motion sickness medication. We sell Bonine and Dramamine at the Landing if you forget to bring some. Please keep in mind that you need to take motion sickness medication before the boat leaves in order for the medicine to be effective.

While tipping is not required, it is customary to tip the captain and the crew. The standard amount is 15 to 20% depending on the service. Please use the same discretion you would in a restaurant.

The following hotels are all within a few mins and walking distance.
Dana Inn
Paradise Point
Town and County

Of Course, although we prefer you not bring glass bottles.

Over-the-counter and prescription medications such as Dramamine and Scopolamine are readily available. Ginger capsules are also considered effective in preventing motion sickness.

Those suffering from seasickness often find relief by:

  • keeping their eyes directed to the fixed shore or horizon.
  • lying down on their backs and closing their eyes
  • move into a position where fresh air is blowing on their face
  • moving to the boat’s center of gravity
  • drinking plenty of water

Unlike with a hangover, succumbing to nausea normally does not relieve the symptoms of seasickness, and, once started, is often difficult to stop.

”Had the opportunity to fish a half-day trip on the Impulse. It had a great tower for getting the fish spotted and the boat is quick enough to make easy runs to the fishing grounds. Captain Matt had amazing skill to put us on a pile of fish each time. We will be booking this boat again next summer!”

“Impulse 5am-5pm. Incredible Trip. The bite was on and the crew was the best we’ve had. Capt. and crew were on point. Putting us on fish and doing whatever it took to make sure we had a great time. Looking forward to the next time out.”
