I have been on this boat two times, the first time was very poor and the second time was terible. We had 12 family members and zero fish. The crew was a little crude but OK. The captain sucked, he played games on his phone while nobody caught fish. The boat was overcrowded and tangled lines were everywhere. At the... More

Here is a list of good things: 1. I saw seabrock nuclear power station for the first time. It's literally across the marsh from the dock. Amazing view. 2. I tested my ability to hold my stomach for 9 hours. I was on fishing trips of the Cape Cod before and did well with no pukes. Here, I gave up... More

Went out for a full day. Everyone's lines were tangled all day and out of 60 people only 30 fish were caught ALL day. Awful party boat.

The man helping us park in the $5 lot warned us that the fishing was poor. He was right. We did catch 2 mackerel. Accessing the boat requires good walking and climbing ability. We had to climb into the first boat and climb out if it into our boat. The crossing is for the well balanced. We traveled out for... More

Captain warned us it was between mackerel and blue fin season so AM trip didn't catch much fish. After an hour ride to Isles of Shoals we set anchor and had a small run of mackerel...it tried up quickly so we moved to the other side of the island and hit a much more productive area. Catching the mackerel was... More

I rarely write reviews, but I'm writing with hopes of preventing someone else from wasting $$$ and four hours of their lives. The trip began with a high speed boat race out to the middle of the ocean somewhere. They did make sporadic announcements throughout the trip, but with the engine noise, boat speed, and muffled speakers, we couldn't understand... More

Boats are nice, the staff are nice, having said that: I've taken 4 or 5 trips with them over the years and nobody on the boats catches much and we've only had 1 keeper. I don't think it's Al Gauron, I just think the ocean off Hampton Beach is over fished and empty. The half day trips are boat rides,... More

Caught almost 100 mackerel on a two hour cruise. Fishing in less than 20 min of leaving port. 19 bucks for the trip and 5 for parking. Great value. He does let a selected few board before you and that is a little disappointing, but wow. Great trip.

Me and father go fishing ever year with this company and we always have a good time. The crew is very helpful and yeah you do have to wait in line but in no way do they put friends on first. The crew is in regular clothing, some have shirts on that say the company name. They don't let people... More
