Whether you want to book reservations for a harbor tour for a lazy day on the water, or a full day of fishing, the Cobra is perfect for ocean adventure. The vessel boasts a large fishing space with plenty of room for casting from both ends. It also has a large bait tank that can hold 10-30 scoops of live bait! The Cobra is one of the the few vessels in the Channel Islands Harbor offering hoop net trips.

Captain Chris Hanson has been in the fishing industry since he was 8 years old. He learned his captain skills from Captain Bill Hutchinson on the Lenbrooke when the boat operated out the Malibu Pier.
