We offer 4 hour fishing trips in Frenchman Bay, Bar Harbor every day from June 15 through September 7. These are great family trips! We stay in Frenchman Bay where we anchor up and chum for Mackerel. We fish with jigs on light tackle making kids and adults alike feel like champion anglers! Our experienced deckhands will help you land your catch and take the fish off your line. We'll fillet and bag your catch for you, and tell tall tales on request! We sail daily at 8:00 a.M. From the Atlantic Oceanside Hotel, 119 Eden St. In Bar Harbor where we have Free and Easy On Site Parking! Space is limited - all tackle included on all fishing trips (you may also bring your own if desired). During July & August we also offer an afternoon 3 hour trip from 5 p.M. To 8 p.M. On Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.

Even though the day started out foggy, we wanted to go fishing. This is not a big game fishing trip, this is family fun. The fish were small but numerous. More than enough to keep my son (11) happy. Even my wife enjoyed the thrill of catching fish. The crew were always there to help, with a smile and friendly... More

Great day of fishing. Crew very experienced and Captain very knowledgeable of area, keeping us out of the fog. Kept us fishing all day and seeing the Eagles were a wonderful bonus! Would definitely go again and recommend to all!

Great family atmosphere. You will catch a lot of fish (small) and the crew are very friendly. The Captain does his best to put you on the action. A nice ride by the lighthouse was a bonus. Eagles swooping down grabbing fish was like watching National Geographic. The seals seemed to pose for us when we motored by. The only... More

What a blast! Our party was 2 adults and our 3 college kids. The most notable item was that two crew on deck were awesome, helpful and very informed. The younger of the two, hustled and moved with awesome work ethic, while the other, slightly older, educated and moved through the group to meet needs and answer questions. Both were... More

Hard to find things a 19 yr old and a 7yr old both enjoy but we nailed it with this one!! Had an absolutely fabulous time fishing and taking in the gorgeous scenery. The trip was topped off with a bald eagle sighting. We highly recommend this and would definitely come back. The crew - Jim, Jerry, and Dougie were... More

We had a lot of fun on this trip. We were just hoping to catch one fish so we could have a picture with it but instead the fish seemed to be jumping on the pole and we caught 21. (Which we threw back since we were staying in a hotel and couldn't do anything with the fish. For those... More

Took my two boys (13 and 10) with me last week. Weather was really nice and the boys wanted a fishing experience. It was GREAT!! Price is reasonable ... about $40/person for a morning of fishing (I've paid way more and caught less). The staff are top notch. Peter and Marvin walked around and made sure everyone was taken care... More
