Huli Cat Sportfishing & Charter Boat
Each winter, professional surfers migrate to Half Moon Bay to try their luck at riding the massive waves of the Mavericks area. During the competition, the coastline waters are dotted with bobbing surfers and spectator boats. For an up-close look at the waves, Huli Cat Sportfishing & Charter Boat, located at nearby Pillar Point Harbor, transports guests aboard its 53-foot-long vessel, the Huli Cat. The staff captain organizes boat trips to snap photos of jumping humpback whales or to fish for salmon and rockfish. Guests can also schedule coastal tours of Half Moon Bay’s wetlands, which are home to more than 200 species of birds and at least 10 kinds of water.
