The charter vessel Cortez is 60' long by 20' wide. The Cortez offers very comfortable accommodations for up to and including 20 passengers, including an air conditioned salon and bunk room. Because great emphasis is put on the care of your catch aboard the Cortez, a spray brine refrigerated fish hold is used on all trips. This is the same system used aboard the long range fishing vessels.
The crew of the Cortez brings many years of local and long range fishing to the Southern California fleet. Owner/operator Jim Hughes has fished commercially for tuna as well as having been a captain in the California sport fleet for almost all of his life. An aggressive fish catching attitude in combination with his demand for top shelf customer service make Jim Hughes and the Cortez an operation of the finest quality. Also note that all prices are subject to change without notice. Should there be any substantial increase in the price of diesel fuel, we may find it necessary to impose a fuel surcharge.
