NEW SHOP Hours M-F 8am to 5pm,  Sat/Sun 5:30am to 6pm

We here at Oceanside SEA Center out of concern with the Coronavirus (COVID-19), will require all passengers and staff to wear mask and boat load capacity will be significantly reduced to allow for maximum social distancing.  The health and safety of our customers, employees, and the community we serve will continue to be our top priority.
     We will be available during our newly revised  business hours in our tackle shop and office for fishing licenses, fishing tackle, bait and supplies for our willing customers. We have new protocols in action, and are doing our best to keep everyone safe and healthy.   We will also be looking to book future charter dates as we hope this situation is drawing towards its end.  Please feel free to email as well.  We will do our best to respond in a timely manner.
Please stay safe and healthy and enjoy your time with loved ones.  

       We look forward to serving our passengers and customers again after this global pandemic is behind us.

Regards,

The Oceanside SEA Center

OUR VISION









Unlike any other landing experience, we have put our emphasis on highlighting marine stewardship through a partnership with the Pfleger Institute of Environmental Research (PIER), a non-profit research group based in Oceanside that supports sustainable recreational and commercial operations.

About Us

The Sea Center brings together Captain Joe Cacciola of Sea Star Charters and Captain Ernie Prieto of Chubasco Sportfishing to develop a new landing experience in Oceanside Harbor. The landing will continue to offer traditional open party sportfishing trips with an emphasis on customer service, community involvement and the consistency you deserve.
