Outdoor Activity · Hidden Gem
Lovely Martha Sport Fishing offers boat charters for all the gamefish San Francisco has to offer from berth #3 at Fisherman's Wharf, San Francisco...

Just as Captain Frank Rescino's father and previous generations have for over 100 years!

And now 4th generation Captain Mike Rescino is at the helm.

We'll take individuals, couples, families and groups large and small out for party boating, sport fishing, memorial charters and our specialty, sightseeing trips from Fisherman's Wharf... we're out on Bay Tours all the time; call for availability of open one hour trips or private sightseeing charters.

The Lovely Martha is the third "Martha" to take fisherman and sightseers out through the Golden Gate from San Francisco. Her history spans many decades as an icon in the world-famous fishing fleet at home in Fisherman's Wharf.

Four generations of the Rescino family have escorted still more generations of fishermen in search of game fish, having boated hundreds of thousands of salmon and other species.

Some of our loyal customers fished on the Martha as children, and now they are treating their grandchildren to special fishing trips on the Lovely Martha as the tradition continues.

And still more tradition: The family succession moves closer as the next Captain Rescino is groomed for the position that he was born for.
Lovely Martha is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , world travel planner Edition.
