The Islander
Full Galley Service
85 ft. x 24 ft.
Sleeps 35 people

The 85 x 24 Islander is one of San Diego’s finest fishing platforms . Built originally as the Red Rooster II, the Islander was designed with comfort, safety and fishability in mind. Building on this solid reputation, recent renovations have solidified Islander as the most versatile vessel servicing Southern California and Baja.

Whether it’s Albacore, Bluefin or Yellowfin offshore or Yellowtail and Rockfish along the coast, Islander is perfectly equipped to produce results with a 300 scoop bait capacity and ten tons of refrigerated hold space. Additionally, we continue to lead the way with quality fish handling practices. An RSW fish hold and 5/8 rubber landing mat means every fish that comes aboard goes home in the best condition possible. A professionally handled, quality product at the end of the trip is something we stand behind every time.

Islander Charters knows that comfort at sea is a key component of any multi-day excursion. With that in mind, Islander features air-conditioned stateroom accommodations exclusively, offering privacy and convenience whether your trip is one day or five. Private cabins with fresh linens, sinks and ample storage are just the beginning of the Islander difference. Islander’s spacious and modern galley provides the perfect respite from the fast-paced action of the deck as well as the ideal venue to showcase our progressive menu. Full meal service three times daily with homemade hors d’oevres twice a day plus a full service wet bar means you’ll never be hungry or thirsty at the rail.

Islander’s full crew of professional fishermen is another hallmark of her success. Islander Charter’s is proud to welcome the same crew back year after year which means you’ll see the same familiar faces on deck that you’ve come to know over the last six years. Each Islander crew member from the owner to the chef is a United States Coast Guard licensed Captain which means you’re in capable, professional hands every time you join us. Quality customer service is the backbone of our business and we can say with confidence that the Islander crew is second to none.

In addition to a full compliment of multi-day fishing trips we also offer specialty trips including kayak mothership trips, Great White Shark Cage diving and long-range spearfishing.
