We had a great morning with Capt Alan and James. Did some river fishing to start out and instantly caught fish. Then headed out to the bay and were lucky enough to catch a shark. Great time, conversation and a little bit of history worked in with fishing of course! Beautiful day out on the water!

Captain Alan and his fishing trip were awesome!! Everyone caught fish and Captain Alan made it sooooo easy for us!! I was a bit unsure that I personally wanted to go, not being into fishing at all, but I figured the rest of the family would enjoy it and I'd just tag along. I'm so glad I did. Capt Alan was sure to throw in some sight-seeing (we saw a lot of dolphins!) and lots of river trivia and area history. He is so personable and knows how to make the trip interesting and fun. And watching the family catch all those fish was great! Definitely a highlight of our trip!

Captain Alan took my family shark fishing on July 5, 2015, and it was probably the highlight of our entire week long trip to Virginia, including Colonial Williamsburg. The captain was very knowledgeable and professional, and he took great consideration of our desire to enjoy ourselves, be safe, and have a once-in-a-lifetime experience that we could remember forever. Captain Alan took extra measures to help my husband who is disabled to achieve something on his bucket list: catch a shark! My husband, my elementary school age son, and I all caught a shark, and my husband caught two! These were not huge sharks, but they were Atlantic sharp nosed sharks and were the perfect size for inexperienced people like us. We also had the opportunity to catch plenty of fish for live bait for the sharks, and when the sharks stopped biting, Captain Alan did everything he could to help us catch other types of fish, too. I highly recommend Captain Alan and York River Charters for anyone who wants an adrenaline rush and an experience of a lifetime all while feeling very safe and secure because the captain had everything under control and knew exactly what he was doing.

We wound up catching 82 croakers in four hours. We've already had a fish fry. The fish taste like the sea. Really fresh. Will be grilling it soon and then will make our own seafood broil.

With 40 years of chasing fishing adventures all over the U.S. and other locations, I have to say I've never had more FUN than on the trip with Capt. Alan. We caught plenty of fish, but more importantly, the guy is a joy to be with. Recommend with no hesitation!

Captain Alan was patient with my kids (and me) and kept us on fish all day. The guy was a joy to be with. His knowledge of the area and it's history was amazing. Highly recommend!

My family visited the Williamsburg area this past week and the absolute highlight of our trip was not fishing but "catching" with Captain Alan. It was an experience that none of us will ever forget! Captain Alan was informative, a wonderful host, a walking encyclopedia on everything fishing and incredibly passionate about making sure we had a great time, caught fish and stayed safe. We caught 2 cobia, 9 shark (yes I did say 9), a flounder, a mackeral and almost two dozen little fish for bait. Every vacation, our goal is to do something we've never done before and this was definitely an experience that we will be talking about for years to come. Can't wait to return to the area and do it again!

My husband and I booked a 6 hour trip for our 10 year anniversary and we weren't disappointed! Captain Alan was wonderful in making our trip as easy as possible. Within minutes of being in the water, we were catching fish!!! We are looking forward to booking another trip with Captain Alan in the future, just without all the extra chum next time!
