After leaving the dock in San Diego, you'll cruise offshore to the Coronado Islands, a barren group of rocky outcrops that are home to millions of migratory birds and tons of sea life. You'll explore the waters around the Coronado Islands, while targeting Yellowtail and a variety of Rockfish, Lingcod, Whitefish, and Sculpin. Add the scenic beauty of the islands and the likelihood of seeing dolphins, seals, and whales, and you have a great adventure on this Coronados trip!...Read More

Everything you need as it pertains to fishing will be provided; Mexican Fishing licenses and visas are an additional cost but we will help get those for you.

Captain Ray was born and raised on Long Island, NY. From a very young age his father taught him to love and respect the ocean. Family trips revolved around fishing. Free time was spent trading tackle in his garage with his brother and cousins. Weekly fishing trips were always a competition on who could catch the most fish. To this day Captain Ray has a passion for fishing. For the last 10+ years, Captain Ray has been fishing the waters off of San Diego and has a deep passion for tuna fishing. The challenge of the chase and the reward of the catch is unmatched and addicting. Book a trip with him and get hooked!

From the time I broke the trip Captain Ray’s was professional and friendly. when we got to the dock Captain Ray and his team were very helpful and friendly as well made us feel right at ease. We went out fishing the 12 hour trip it started off very slow ...Read More . Found lots of kelp patties but not much fish on them. They worked very very hard to get us on the fish later in the day we had a blast. All four of us caught fish. We got into some good fish and they went above and beyond and out of the way to make this happen. Just want to say thank you to Captain Ray and his crew.

Captain Ray and his assistant Trevor are a hell of a team. I booked a half day out to the Coronado islands to target yellowtail for my buddies bachelor party weekend. Captain Ray is incredibly laid back and skilled in his profession. His boat is in pristine condition and outfitted ...Read More with everything you’ll need to land a ton of fish. We were a Saturday trip and the islands were very busy, but it really seemed like we were the only ones catching yellowtail. Captain Ray has a great instinct for finding the bite and is lightning fast on getting all lines in the water to capitalize on these fleeting moments. We hooked at least 8 yellowtail within a couple hours and landed 4(be prepared to be snaked by some savvy sea lions!). Overall our experience was incredible and couldn’t have happened without the guidance and service of Captain Ray and Trevor l. Would absolutely recommend to others, and will be Re-booking with Captain Ray for future excursions. 5 stars across the board.

Great trip with a great crew. Captain Ray will go above and beyond to try and put you on fish. Fishing was a little slow all day but Ray kept us moving and looking. Finally found and caught of yellow fin. End of the trip we were running a little ...Read More late back to the dock and still in Mexico. Ray stops again to give us another chance and we get into a blue fin. Ray and his crew coached my two nephews for over an hour. The final result was a landed 88lb blue fin in a spinning rod! Light tackle magic that I don’t think any of us will forget, especially my two nephews. We put it on them to land that fish, and after all the coaching from the crew and a broken gaff the fish was in the boat. If you have a small group and want first class service then Captain Ray and the Wild Goose are your boat. I can’t tell you when I’ll be able to do this trip again, but I can tell you it will be with Ray! Thanks again guys we had a blast!
