For this year’s annual overnight trip, every department manager enjoyed sailing on the Tribute out of Seaforth Landing in San Diego through the night into Mexican waters. We kicked off the trip with tailgating, gifting swag to attendees, spending the beautiful day fishing! COO Chris McFayden caught the first fish of the trip while the rest were able to catch their fair share in small schools of fish that swam by. It also didn’t hurt that we got to eat complimentary breakfast, lunch, and dinner either.
At one point in our travels, we were intercepted by a pod of dolphins, riding the waves off the boat’s bow and showing off their acrobatic skills–and we may or may not have good-naturedly shoving each other out of the way for the best photo positions and catching a glimpse of a large Mako shark too. Our adventure peaked at our final stop: a kelp patty that produced 25-36lb Yellowtail! As the day came to a close, the 24 attendees caught 60 fish! Afterward, we were surprised with a luxurious steak dinner and cheesecake for dessert. On the sail ride home, we revisited our memories, photos, and appreciated the ocean views and California sunset. It was a perfect end to a perfect day!
