This is a great (but long!) fishing day for a family. A few tips: try and go the day before and sign up for your "spots" on the boat. The best spots are on the back, in the corners. Also, bring several large zip lock bags with you, to bring fillets back in. Also, bring money on board. Things end... More

It was a perfect New England day for fishing. Crew was great. Boat was great. But alas not many fish. The captain tried a few spots. A couple of people caught a few good ones. I caught one but it was not a keeper. Some people caught cod and wolf fish but they are now a protected species so back... More

Great crew, very nice and helpful. A fun day at sea. They clean your fish too so you don't have to mess up your kitchen. Good idea for kids.

For those wanting to experience deep sea fishing for the first time, this is a great place to start. We took our young boys for a half day trip and they loved it. The staff were lovely and very welcoming. The price was not bad compared to a private charter. However, my husband, experienced fishermen, said is was adequate. The... More

We booked a half day fishing trip out of Gloucester while staying in the Cape Ann area on July 30th leaving at 8AM. We have done these types of trips before and this one did not come close to anything else we had done. We were on a boat called the Patriot, which could have used a little sprucing up.... More

Very disappointing. My daughter booked our annual deep sea fishing trip 3 weeks in advance. 4 of us. The Fleet overbooked - they had to search out fishing poles for all of us and we had to take turns fishing because there was not enough room/ fishing spots on the boat. A lot of this was due to overbooking in... More

We ( family of 4 with 2 teenage boys) booked a full day trip on the Yankee Patriot on Friday July 17, and what a great time we had! This wasn't the largest boat in the fleet but we had plenty of room to fish and weren't packed in like sardines which was really nice. My husband was allowed to... More

I went out on their Super Thursday special. For the price, this is the best fishing possible. At first, I thought this was going to be one of those places that packs the boat full of people to maximize their profits, but I was completely mistaken. There were about 10-15 people fishing but there is room on the boat for... More

As Forrest Gump might say, whale watching is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re going to get. If you’re lucky, there’ll be plenty of whales. Or there might not be. The good news is, the tour operators cooperate with one another, and pass on the best places to go on the day. So there’s a reasonable... More
