Leaving the Bay…

The Seiner Venturous is leaving San Diego Bay. I took this photo back in 1987, sadly one by one tuna seiner’s left this bay for the last time, very unfortunate. sdtunaboats@cox.net

Sea quest …

In this photo  The Seiner Sea Quest docked at G Street Pier next to  the Fish Market Restaurant and in background the USS Ranger Aircraft Carrier. I’m guessing this photo was taken around 1983 or a little later. Send us photos to sdtunaboats@cox.net

Koorale….

Back in Nelson New Zealand , progress continues on the Koorale . Again Thank You to Michael Burt for being our eyes down under, cheers Michael. sdtunaboats@cox.net

Carol Linda…

The Seiner Carol Linda tied up at Seaport Village dock. A lot has changed since this photo, seiners are gone and soon Seaport village will be also. sdtunaboats@cox.net

Campbells…

Another great photo of San Diego Bay, so much has changed since this picture. On the right at Campbells Shipyard we have the Capt M.J Souza and the Isidoro Duarte both seiners built by Martinac and both were originally American flag seiners . MJ Souza is currently under New Zealand flag under the same name. The Isidoro Duarte was launched the Theresa Janene in 1974 and is under a Mexican flag now unfortunately it had a big fire aboard a few years ago. sdtunaboats@cox.net

San Diego Bay…

 This photo was taken from 10th Ave Terminal in the 70s . This is what San Diego Bay used to look like, Tuna Seiners and Naval Ships two of San Diego’s  biggest industries .  sdtunaboats@cox.net
