He was friendly, well-mannered, professional, very knowledgable and prepared. His boat was clean and ready to go on time. John did a really good job explaining everything, from fish facts to fishing techniques to the history... More

My family and I went out for a half day with Captain Hugh. He took us to quite a few different locations all packed with lobster. The Captain was friendly and could tell he genuinely wanted us to catch lobster. We all had so much fun that we wish we had more time to go again. I would recommend chartering... More
