One and one-half day tuna trips generally run during the summer months when the good fishing can't be reached on a one day trip. These trips generally depart at 9:00 pm, fish all day the next day, and return around 6:00 am the following morning, although return times may vary. On the drive to the fishing grounds, which could be from 80 miles up to 120 miles, you are provided with sleeping accommodations. Seaforth's one day boats have bunk style beds with clean blankets and pillows provided. The bunks, as well as Mexican fishing permits if needed, are included in the ticket price.
After a good nights rest, a hot breakfast is available in the galley. All of our galleys offer hot and cold food, snacks, and beverages, including beer. We ask that you do not bring alcohol, ice chests, or glass aboard the vessel.
The various species of fish these trips target include Albacore, Bluefin, Yellowfin, and Bigeye Tuna along with Skipjack, Dorado, and Yellowtail. The experienced captains and crews at Seaforth are amoung the best at finding fish. All of our boats are equipped with the latest in fish finding technology. The fish can be found with this equipment, trolling gear which can be used by the angler at no additional cost, and looking for fish by sight.
Once you have caught a fish, it is tagged and put in a chilled fish hold. This keeps your fish cold and firm thoughout the trip. Fish filleting service is available for those who do not want to take home whole fish.
