Should be six stars! Capt. Gary, and mate Lars are professionals to the highest degree. From the way they take care of the boat and gear to how they handle themselves at sea. We went off shore for fish that we could fill our cooler with so that everyone could take something home. Once we got to Capt Gary's spot... More

What a memorable day with Captain Gary and Ben! Charter included 8 year old twins who had a blast! Started out bait fishing and the immediate excitement and involvement by the kids set the tone for the day! They couldn't wait to catch and sort into the chum or live bait buckets. Weather was amazing off the coast in early... More

I try and find activities that create outdoor memories for my family and friends and Capt Gary and crew of TunaHunter.com delivered. Great boat, very professional crew, fun atmosphere, and Captain knows where the fish are. We are looking forward to going back for more.

We lucked out when we found Tuna Hunter with Gary and first mate, Ben. From the first call to make the reservation, Gary was laid back and very accommodating. When we arrived, we found the boat very spacious and comfortable with cover to protect from the sun. To top it all off, we caught a ton of stripers, during a... More

We had the best trip I could have hoped for. Everyone caught fish. Captain Gary is friendly knowledgeable and coached us through landing some monster Striped Bass. Started off catching bait fish 5 at a time and peaked with us fighting two 40+ inch bass hooked at the same time. First mate Ben kept us all going and was great... More

I'v fished with Captain Gary on The Tuna Hunter every year for the past 15. It seems that every time I go it is better than the last. I've fished in a lot of foreign destinations and I have to say that going to Gloucester and fishing on The Tuna Hunter is one of my favorites. The fishing is GREAT... More
