ABOUT

THE BOAT

TBird MD Drone 1

The T Bird is 60 feet long and 20 feet wide with a capacity of 26 anglers. 2 day and 2.5 day trips are limited to 24 anglers. Below deck the bunks are comfortable with great air circulation. The boat has a large bait capacity and a chilled fish hold. The rail is the perfect height for fighting large game fish with "rail rods." There are very few boats in the fleet with as much tackle storage for anglers as the T Bird. There are two bathrooms, and one has a shower. The T Bird has a full galley that serves high quality breakfasts, lunches, and dinners. The galley is also packed with snacks, candy, soda, beer, water, and coffee.

THE HISTORY

IMG_20200331_205955_763

Built in 1960 the T Bird originally served anglers out of Newport Beach and was called "The Thunderbird." Back then the boat mainly fished Catalina island and San Clemente island. After decades of service in Orange County the boat was purchased by its current owners Kenny Dean and Tyler Hill. The boat was then renamed "The T Bird" and it began a new chapter fishing out of the "World Renowned Point Loma" where it now targets a larger more productive fishery.
