My husband and I took a fishing trip with Island Queen Inland Charters in September. We had a wonderful time! Captain Charlie was great! He knew all the good fishing spots, and we caught a good amount of fish! The boat and rods were in great condition and we learned a little about the island and fishing. We highly recommend... More

We returned the week of August 16th for our annual week to Chincoteague Island, Va. We have been coming here for annual vacation since I can't remember! The trip would not be "complete" without our fishing trips with Charle. All of my kids have fished with Charlie as well as my father who is now 89 years old and can't... More

Charlie and Colleen are very nice, accommodating people. I was disappointed that we didn't see much and didn't catch anything but I don't think I can blame them for that. We have gone on more scenic boat tours around Chincoteague before but thought we would try fishing this time. The rate was very reasonable.

Charlie and Coleen run a great operation. Friendly, flexible, and knowledgeable. You could pay more for a fishing charter or scenic cruise...but why? Thanks...we will be back!

Well I wish I would have visited the island before Irene she messed up the fishing around the island. I fished on the Sand Bar and the surf and the bay but nothing. I had a nice boat trip on the Island Queen. I saw tons of birds and took plenty of pictures. I'm sure if Irene didnt arrive I... More

We have yet to go to Chincoteague Island and not have had a trip planned on the Island Queen. We enjoy our boating trips very much. Captain Charlie goes above and beyond to make your boating experience enjoyable. We have fished, clammed and have taken sightseeing trips with them. If you get to the Island make sure you look up...

We had an incredible time fishing with Captain Charlie!! My fishing experience is limited, but he was extremely helpful. Charlie was unbelievably knowledgeable, not to mention entertaining, throughout the day. We learned a lot about the island and it's history. Thanks Charlie and Colleen, see you next year!!!
