Get on the water, experience the beauty of Boston Harbor, and catch some fish! Captain David runs the business along with his wife, Alyssa, and he's proud to offer fishing trips to anglers of all experience levels.

While on the water, you will fish from a 15' Campion 492 center console equipped with a 2016 Yamaha outboard motor. The boat has new electronics and navigational equipment, meaning all you'll have to focus on is your line. The captain will also provide all licensing, bait, rods and reels, along with safety gear such as PFDs for every passenger.
