I have been out with Ben many times in Maine and once for giant tarpon in the Keys. This years challenge, my energetic 10 year old nephew this year. Ben kept him busy, engaged and my nephew loved every minute. This will be an annual trip now.

Captain Ben was amazing. The trip was very fun and Ben really knew fishing the area. We caught several Mackerel and stripers. The trip was a great value and loads of fun. Ben was super flexible with dates and times and even rescheduled us two hours later to avoid rough seas. Don't hesitate to go fishing with Ben.

Captain Ben was amazing on our first family fishing trip! He should us how to use the equipment and was super patient with our 5 and 6 year old kids. Ben knew exactly where the fish would be. 10 minutes in we were well into catching a tank full of fish! We can not wait till next summer when we... More

Great trip with my boys. Captain Ben was helpful and attentive. My 9 year old twins had so much fun and learned a lot. This was the best fishing charter we have been on! I would highly recommend a trip.

Capt. Ben took us out directly to the mackerel. After catching enough for bait, we headed to get stripers. First spot gave us two. We moved and I got 3. Ocean was flat and a very comfortably ride to and from the Marina. I highly recommend Capt. Ben for his professionalism, his knowledge of the fish and fishing and finally... More

Kids had a blast, and Capt. Ben did a great job on a short outing. We had limited time to fish and Ben was able to quickly find a good spot. We caught nearly 100 mackerel & other variety of fish in a short time.

Great, knowledgable guide. Amazing how Ben can consistently put sports on the fish when everyone else is struggling. 6 mako's this past season is a feat that is unheard of in the northeast! The relaxed but effective atmosphere was perfect for sparking a lifelong interest of offshore fishing in my son and his friend. Having fun and catching fish is... More
