This is for the 8/8 trip. I've been going fishing with this business for the last 12 years. Off and on. I try to get in 3 trips a year. Here's why I and my kids come back. 1) safety is obviously first. This can be observed if you watch a listen to the crew. 2) atmosphere. It's nice to... More

We've made it an annual tradition to do a full-day of fishing with Al Gauron in July. The fishing is not the best this time of year, but we ALWAYS have a great day on the water. The crew is always helpful. If you go in the summer, don't expect to catch much unless you are a jigger fisherman... this... More

My wife and I took the 3 hour Fireworks Cruise and enjoyed it very much. There was a variety of music playing the whole trip except during the fireworks display at Hampton Beach near the end of the cruise. The crew was friendly and informative pointing out landmarks etc. and we had a "bonus" sighting of a whale during our... More

My family and myself (9 people all together) booked the whale watching tour on July 19th and saw a few as we left the harbor and then nothing for 2 hours. What we didn't know was they had been in radio contact with some other boats (somewhere south of Boston) and found out where this family of humpbacks were hanging... More

I thought this would be a great trip but it turned out I was wrong! I went deep sea fishing all day and they over crammed the boat, but if you were a friend of theirs you got first pick of the best fishing spots while the rest of the people were fishing on top of each other. The fat... More

I've been on their fishing trips about 8 or 9 times now. Once for a full day and the rest were half day fishing trips. I wanted to give them 4-stars, but I've had mixed experiences. Definitely not a 5-star business as their boats aren't in top shape/cleanliness. The crew is a hit or miss as sometimes they're good, friendly... More

Have NO idea why the terrible reviews. Fished the White Star (one of Gauron's ships) today, 6/21/14. This was about my 15th deep sea fishing experience. My first time from Hampton Beach. All my experience has been out of Plymouth, Ma. First off right from our arrival, the crew could not have been friendlier, courteous or more professional, helping us... More
