In 2013 my wife set us up with Capt. Ben for my 40th b-day. Between the five of us we caught 21 Blue sharks 4 of these were approaching the 400 lb 12 foot range...monsters! We were also lucky enough to land a 5 1/2 foot 104 lb Mako shark. That trip was by far the most epic day of... More

My 11-year old son and I just got back from a day of fishing with Captain Ben on the Kristen K. What a wonderful trip! On a scale of 1 to 10, my son gives it a 1000. I've been on a few charters that I wouldn't want to take my son on, but Ben was absolutely fabulous with him.... More

This was not my group's first trip with Capt. Ben and it definitely won't be the last. We fished for shark in a local tournament last week and we caught shark from the word go! Our first hookup was a beautiful 333 lb. thresher and you could hear the collective groan over the radio when he announced it! Ben is... More

On the first day of shark week 2014 our group of military vets went out to catch blue sharks through Kristin K charters. Our captain Ben was very personable and experienced. Through his guidance we were able to catch 13 sharks that day!!!! It was exhilarating!!! Our first bite was less than an hour into the trip. Not only did... More

We caught nine sharks. Captain Ben is the best Captain I have met. Sharks started biting shortly after setting up and didn't stop till we left. Worth every minute and a great time.

My family and I went fishing with Capt. Ben and it proved to be a fantastic experience for all. I wasn't entirely sure how my wife and kids (11 yr olds) would handle a 4 hour ocean charter, fishing for Striped Bass. Ben and I communicated through email as well as on the phone and he left me feeling very... More

Capt. Ben is an awesome fisherman! He led us through the adventure of a lifetime. The next time we come to Maine we would definitely go fishing with Capt. Ben again. Kristen K Charters is the best!

Our first shark was at the boat 5 mins after we dropped bait in, although we lost that fish we soon had another shark sitting and i hooked onto a beautiful mako shark and... More

Great trip with Capt. Ben. Came all the way from CA and although the weather wasn't ideal Capt. Ben had all the right equipment and experience to get us where we needed to go. Landed a ton of fish with multiple occasions of double hook-ups. Look forward to going out with him again and would recommend him for anglers of... More

Would recommend Kristin K to anybody that I know coming to the area. Captain Ben was very knowledgeable and accommodating making sure we had fun, were comfortable, and caught fish. Even though the weather wasn't the most ideal he was able to adjust to make sure we had the best day we could.
