Avoid the busy crowds by arriving at the private dock, where we will teach you how to operate the kayak and play safely on the water. Once you feel comfortable, your self guided journey will begin with the calm water of America's Cup Harbor. This place is loaded with spotted bass and great for practicing your new skills.

My friend and I had a super awesome morning kayak fishing with our guide Rus. He was very informative and willing to help with anything you need! In 2 hours, I hooked and landed: 3 spotted bay bass and 1 sand bass. I highly recommended this Airbnb experience for a fun day on the water in San Diego. You won’t find any better place! Will be back 100%
