Talk about fun! 5 of us went Shark Fishing last year and had the best time ever! On our way out we stopped and caught some Mackerel to use as live bait, or as I like to say to get us warmed up for catching the real deal. The thrill of that first pull when you have a shark on... More

I took my two young sons and a cousin and his young son fishing with Capt Ben. It was awesome! Capt Ben is knowledgeable, personable and a nice guy. The fishing was fun, as we caught bait fish and then Striper's. The block of time was perfect for the boys ages 8-13, also for the Dad's. I highly recommend the... More

Took my son out for his first ocean fishing trip with Capitan Ben and he did not disappoint. We had a fantastic time and I highly recommend booking a trip with him! We will be booking another trip next year.

AWESOME trip, he put us right on the bait and on the fish, double digit hook ups! Felt like I was fishing with one of my best buds! Family had a blast! Would... More

I was very impressed with the family fun cruise. I took out my 5 year old and he had a blast. Captain Ben was very personable and did great entertaining my boy's questions about fish and the ocean. We caught a ton of fish and it was the perfect amount of time. At 1:45 into a 2 hour trip, my... More

Our trip with Captain Ben surpassed any of our expectations. My son has waited to fish for a long time. Captain Ben was patient, attentive and educational. My son had an unbelievable time and the number of fish he caught was unbelievable, once he caught four fish at once. My son was over the moon with the experience. Thank you... More

Ben was amazing. He was so patient with the young children, made sure that everyone on the trip was comfortable. Always let us know when to expect some waves. We caught about 15 fish. The kids were ecstatic and Ben was always checking in on the kids. Made great conversation and was very amicable. We will be booking with him... More

Reading the reviews for Kristen K charters, it was a no brainer to go spend a day fishing with them. We were reassured several times by Capt. Ben that the time of the year we were coming (June), that the fishing with him was great and that we would be non-stop catching stripped bass. We were so excited!! However, after... More

I am very saddened to read this review unfortunately you can have the best conditions in the world and the fish don't bite no matter what the situation fishing. is by no means a guarantee we do however have outstanding results most of the time catching fish .
