Great Journeys. Fascinating Places.

We are excited and proud to provide a quality world class fishing experience for all those who board the Reel Magic. With many years of fishing experience, coupled with our uncompromising standards and dedication to details, we hope that your experience on the Reel Magic will leave you with a life-long memory.

The Reel Magic is Bodega Bay’s only charter fishing Catamaran. She one of the fastest boats in the harbor and is an impressive fishing machine at 34 feet with a 12-foot beam. Twin 330 HP Cummings Turbo Diesels produce a respectable 21 Knot cruising speed. The Reel Magic has a full-sized stand-up head with an operational sink and a freshwater reserve tank. She is a very safe and stable vessel, especially while running and fishing.  The Reel Magic is an awesome fishing platform!!

Our specialties include the diversification of trolling techniques, with the use of New Cannon Offshore Electric Downriggers and outstanding Okuma salmon trolling rod and reels and excellent light tackle Shimano rod and reels perfect for Rock Cod and Ling Cod to 30 lbs.

We are committed to a safe, quality experience and a quality product.
We will handle your fish with care from the ocean to your plate.

Our goal is that the customer will appreciate the quality and the services provided aboard the Reel Magic and that our clients will be so impressed that they will make it at least an annual trip, & they tell all of their friends what an awesome safe time they had, fishing with Reel Magic Sport Fishing Charters and that they can't wait until their next trip!!
