Bodega Bay Marina with boats

Fishing, Boating & Whale Watching

There's nothing quite like standing on the deck of a boat, heading out for a day on the water.

Whether you want to hook a fish, pull up a pot of crabs, or get up close with whales and other sea life, several companies offer a variety of seagoing adventures on Sonoma County's Pacific Ocean coastline, as well as several inland waterway options. Read Bodega Bay: Boat Charters & Tours for more inspiration.

Fishing is plentiful in Sonoma County, and the best places to fish are the state, regional, and other parks located on the Russian River, along the 55-mile coast, on San Pablo Bay, and in streams, lakes, and ponds. See more information about fishing here or browse the listings below for fishing, boating, and whale watching opportunities.
