At just six years old Captain Chris Duba fell in love with the sea when his father took him out fishing on the Silver Fox on a weekly basis. While destined to be on the water, as he grew up Chris left the boat to pursue a career as an airline pilot, flying 737s and eventually 747s internationally.

However, Chris couldn't ignore his love for the sea and in 1985 he began captaining charter boats in San Diego and Mexico, fishing for sharks and tuna.

Back in 2000 when presented the opportunity to take the helm of the Silver Fox, there was no question for Chris and he eagerly stepped into the role. He has since been providing tourists and locals alike amazing experiences out on the San Francisco Bay. Whether he's sport fishing, bay touring, or dodging great white sharks out by the Farallons Islands, Chris ensures that everyone on the Silver Fox has an awesome time out on the water.


Testimonials of our customers

I'm a long time San Francisco Giants fan and was soooo excited when they went to the World Series in 2010 and 2012!  Just when I thought it couldn't get any better, I found out that Silver Fox was a charter boat that would take people out to McCovey Cove to experience the World Series games out there!

My friends and I couldn't pass up the opportunity, so we all went on the Silver Fox and had the time of our lives. We even got on tv!  The crew was very accommodating and my friends and I have gone on fishing trips with this boat since then. The boat made our World Series experience incredible and I will definitely be going again when the Giants go back!

We happened to be walking by when we heard they were doing tours for $15 dollars. We couldn't believe it and jumped at the chance to do this. The four of us managed to get the one and only bench up the front. The captain was very informative on everything we passed. Managed to learn a few things on the tour. We saw sea lions and dolphins swimming around. This tour takes you out past the golden gate and back to alcatraz. We managed to get some great pictures. If you don't mind getting wet then this is the best place to sit. I normally have problems with motion sickness but did great on here. I would take this tour again.

Six of us went fishing this Saturday.  Captain Chris is an excellent skipper with years of experience on the Bay and Pacific.  His deck hand Jeff is also excellent and friendly.  I found out that Chris is also a 747 airline pilot with a 100 ton master's license for vessels. Talk about knowledge behind the helm!  We ran for 2 hours to 20 miles out and within 3 hours the entire boat had limits of hard fighting, beautiful salmon.  A terrific experience all the way around!  I'll go again, many times!
