Gatherer Outfitters is the Premier Sports Fishing & Ocean Adventure 8+ Pack Charter Boat in the Bay Area.
We bring our clients to the hottest fishing spots in our safe Coast Guard Inspected, super fast, comfortable and mad fishy boat the Gatherer II and put them on top of the high grade fish while having a legendary day in the bay.
We also run regular women's trips, kids trips, wine tasting tours and offer private events and team building days on our dialed in, fully lisenced and insured adventure boat with a 10 person capacity.
We provide all gear and require no previous fishing experience on all of our trips. Our clients take home their just caught fish professionally filleted and ready for cooking and sharing.
We are currently booking private Full Boat Charters with up to 8-10 anglers and Open Load Indivdual Tickets on trips with a maximum of 8 people.
Every Gatherer Outfitters Fishing Trip includes all bait, gear, and tackle and professional fish filleting of your catch to take home. Unlike party boats are no extras to pay for—just get on the boat and we’ll get you on the fish!
We leave from the J Dock of Berkeley Marina around 6am and return between 2-3pm.
Private Trips can customize hours, target species and most aspects of the day.
Gatherer Outfitters trips take place on the Gatherer II, a super fast, super comfortable 30 x 12 1/2 foot Island Hopper. We are one of the few Coast Gaurd Inspected 8+ Packs in the Bay, meaning that our boat was built and maintained to the highest safety standards, our Capt is a Master Captain, and our boat is able to carry up to 12 passengers.
The Gatherer II is extremely wide and stable, perfect for both trolling and drifting. She’s powered by a 425 horse power 6.7l Cummins Diesel super fast, super low emissions motor, giving us a comfortable crushing speed of 20+kts. She boasts brand new state of the art Raymarine and Simrad electronics including the latest in sonar imaging technology, as well as a thumping JB Audio blue tooth sound system.
The Gatherer II offers an onboard head (toilet) and comfortable seating for our clients.
The Gatherer is equipped with top quality fishing gear—Avet lever drag reels and braided line with fluorocarbon liters paired with high end terminal tackle. We use Gamagatzu and Owner hooks.
The boat is equipped with custom designed live bait system, including a 110 gallon tank with viewing windows and the largest bait pump on the market. This system ensures that we will have the freshest, most lively bait for catching the big ones.
As lifelong commercial fishermen, we always deck bleed, keep the fish well iced, and professionally fillet all fish at the dock, so that our clients go home with top of the line, sushi grade seafood.
