We booked this charter for 5 adults and 1 child who loves fishing. Crew was great with our son. The adults were a little disappointed that only 1 pole was in the water at a time so basically they had to all just take turns reeling in a fish. They would of liked to all have a pole. They did clean the fish they caught. Captain let our son go on top with him. Main disappointment was the 1 pole only.

Capt. Dom was phenomenal ... he led us exactly where we needed to go and provided an exceptional time on the water.

Our trip was to say goodbye to both my mother and father. His attention to detail and providing appropriate music for the moment simply can not be understated. I encourage anyone who is thinking of this service or just an afternoon on the water,,, book with Capt Dom and you will enjoy the trip. BRAVO ZULU,

Cpt. Jay was absolutely fantastic! He knew ahead of time that it was my son’s 13th birthday present and that he had always wanted to catch a cobia. He made sure that happened, not once, but twice. His friends also got to go and were so grateful to have such a great time! The kids (and I) loved being out on the water, and the fun ride back! The adventure was memorable and my son can’t wait to go again! Look out Capt. Jay! You may be creating a first mate in the future!

Worst trip I have been on. First let me say that we are not rich people. It takes us months to put together funds for vacations. So my wife as a gift to me worked a couple of doubles in order to put together enough money to gift me with a fishing charter. I wish she would have just burned the money. I’d got more enjoyment. First this was a six hour trip. The first hour was spent speeding out to a spot so they could net catch our bait which they had not pre-stocked. The next four hours were spent watching the captain and mate fish. We never touched a pole. After four hours I guess they could tell I was not happy so decided it was time to head toward shore to try and catch some inshore fish. However, once again we never touched a pole. The mate would hook a little bait fish and then call my grandson over to reel it in. Sort of like hitting the ball and then having someone else run to first base. The Captain never caught anything. Again I never touched a pole. So bottom line, if you have $800.00 of your hard earned money to spend in Virginia Beach, get a hotel room and take your family out to dinner, do not spend on First Charter.

We have gone on various trips with Captain Jay over the years and always had a wonderful time. Our most recent experience from this week was no exception. Captain Jay makes the trips exciting and adventurous, for grown-ups and children alike. His pleasant character and entertaining stories keep everyone happy. We will be back!

We had an amazing trip with Captain Jay and his crew. He started by giving us some options of what we want to catch and taking us to the right spots. They accommodated everyone from my 9 year old son to my 70 year old father. All fishing abilities will have a great time. They will clean and fillet the fish for you back at the dock. Highly recommend for a personalized experience.

We thoroughly enjoyed our sunset cruise. We saw dolphins, a neat container ship and learned some history and saw some cool military bases. The sunset on the Chesapeake bay was gorgeous. Wendell was super nice, knowledgeable about the area and made us feel comfortable. Highly recommend first Landing Charters.

Beautiful evening cruise. Captain Don made sure our time on the boat met our expectations, and it certainly did. It was a treat to see the Cavalier Hotel from the ocean after having had a birthday brunch there earlier. Sunset, ships, and dolphins—thanks for a great time with family.

Second year in a row we took this tour. Took the grandkids this time and they loved the attention Kokie gave them. Good dude.
We saw a lot of dolphins and heard a bunch of fun facts. Beautiful sunset.

Did the All day Off-shore trip. Had an excellent time with Captain Jay and Fist Mate Hunter. The Captain knew where and when to go catch the fish. Hunter kept 2 poles up and running for the 5 of us for the Tile fish. Our arms were tired! Going again next year, hopefully the Tuna will be active then!
