The Lovely Martha is a classic fishing boat; one of the last traditional wooden-hulled boats in the Golden Gate fleet. We offer open load sport fishing, as well as private charters for all fishing or boating needs in San Francisco waters.

A trip through the historic Golden Gate can be unforgettable. Returning with the day's catch can make it all the better.

First-timers & seasoned anglers alike will enjoy a comfortable trip; a classic fishing adventure aboard a beautiful, historic San Francisco fishing boat.

An experienced captain and crew will lead you to the fish, provide instructions and assistance where needed, and net your catch.

Your fish will be cleaned before returning to dock. It is commonly accepted that your deckhand is tipped for their assistance and fish cleaning.

The Lovely Martha respects and follows all California Department of Fish & Game Regulations. We believe in the preservation of our valuable fisheries resources; please use extreme care when handling and releasing undersized or catch-and-release fish.

Our family has been fishing from and berthed in Fisherman's Wharf slip #3 since 1903.

The Lovely Martha aims to please. We want you to enjoy yourself, catch lots of fish, and come back whenever you get the urge to catch more.

* The Lovely Martha sport fishing company is fully bonded, insured, licensed and approved by the United States Coast Guard for condition, safety and training.
