Captain Irv and crew run the most family friendly fishing boat along the Jersey Shore. In addition to catching fish, expect to see dolphins at the mouth of the inlet as well as a multitude of seabirds. Check out their four hour fishing trips for real family fun.

Thank you for the wonderful review. We were lucky to see the dolphins for sure. They are so much fun to watch, the dolphins were swimming under the front of the boat. We try our best to make your day on the water fun. Thank you More

The crew was great and the boat was nice. Unfortunately, the day we went was very crowded and not many people caught fish. Might have moved the boat too much to find a better spot to find fish but that didn't leave much time for rods in the water. It takes about 45 minutes to get out and 45 to... More

We try to make every trip fun for sure. Unfortunately I can not guarantee catching. I try to go to the places where I think the fish are. We always catch fish, but keepers are tough to come by at times. I am glad the crew and boat met your expectations. Thank you. More

Pick the right day, and a trip on the Miss Avalon is a wonderful decision. Friendly captain, helpful staff, and who doesn't like slicing across the blue Atlantic beneath a sunny sky?

Went for a 4 hour fishing trip. Captain and 2 man crew were very friendly and helpful. Kept the atmosphere on board fun. Moved to 3 separate spots to keep the fishing active. Nearly everyone on board caught fish, not keepers, but lots of action. Crew and Captain helped with caught fish and gladly held the fish for pics. Bring... More

My husband and I decided one thing we wanted to do for our anniversary was to go on a boat fishing. Well we were not disappointed! Captain Irv and Mate Brandon were great! They made sure that everyone had bait and that if we weren't getting any bites, the boat was moved to another spot. They both made the fishing... More

My son and I have taken a couple of half day trips on Miss Avalon. While we haven't caught keepers we always get some action. The crew tries really hard to make the day fun and easy. Only drawback is smoking is allowed around the boat. Both times my son and I couldn't find fresh air and ended up with... More

I have not come up with a good solution. We are outside on the ocean and the wind blows most days. We do not allow smoking on the cabin. I don t smoke, but I try to respect those who do. Any ideas on how to respect both parties will be very helpful. More
