On a quest to finally catch some yellow fin tuna, my father and I looked everywhere online for reputable sport fishing charters in San Diego, and boy did we pick the right one. We went on a full day trip with Mike and Randy on The Long Run Sportfishing and caught some seriously nice fish. The boat was spacious and the crew was solid.For anyone serious about catching some tuna, these are the guys. The Long Run is a class act all around and a pleasure to fish on. Special thanks to Nathan, Mike, and Randy for making it happen, will definitely be back for another trip.

“Had a great time fishing for halibut on a last minute plan to go fishing. Nathan made sure we got our time out as well as the Capt found some great locations.”. – Greg S.

The Long Run is a class act operation that gets you on the fish! I normally fish on sport boats but decided to give this a shot. I hopped on board the Witchy Woman center console and was ready to go. The yellowfin pushed down south but captain Nathan decided to make the 70 mile run! Man this boat is fast, we got down to the grounds in no time. All I can say is that if you want to get on a boat with the drive to find the fish this is the boat for you!

More than Fishing Trips

“The Long Run” is also available for private parties, Surf Trips, Dive Trips, Bay Cruises, Whale Watching and more. It is your trip and our goal is to create a custom experience for every party. We are typically very hands or or we can offer our vessel for those more experienced to run their own show. We realize that there are wide ranges of experience requests and are happy to cater to anglers of any level of experience.


Established in 1994.
The Long Run has been owned and operated out of Marina Cortez since owner Nathan Bealls purchase of the vessel in 1998.
Having owned another 37′ Viking 4 years prior gave him the inclination to begin sharing his love for the ocean and fishing. This was the only way for one to afford to get out offshore far enough to get the big Pelagics like Tuna Dorado and Yellowtail. We had to “share expenses”.

The Viking was a gas and wood boat and was a great intro into the world of chartering for The Long Run. The Long Run is a trawler and has over 120 feet of rail space and a great bow for fishing making even flyfishing possible.

The Long Runs 6 person capacity means fewer tangles and more fish per angler on the troll. The boat is extremely comfortable and clean and does not smoke a lot as many deisel vessels do. It is a semi-displacement hull making it extremely fuel efficient. We now have added 24′ 4-pack, 34′ and 52′ 6-pack vessels to our fleet.
