Recommended length of visit: More than 3 hours
Owner description: Head out into the Bay of Fundy for what could turn out to be the fishing story of a lifetime! Climb aboard the Sea Fox with Captain Chris and his team of shark biologists in search of the elusive sharks that inhabit these waters. Porbeagles, Threshers, Makos and even the giant of the deep – the Great White – have all been seen and caught in the Bay of Fundy. Learn how to fish for bait and prepare the chum, then get ready for the thrill of a lifetime hooking onto a shark on this 5-6 hour adventure. Shark Fishing in the Bay of Fundy can be fast action once the sharks are attracted by a chum slick, often times when hooking onto a shark the rod is passed around to give everyone onboard a break from the mighty fight. See how the biologists tag these amazing creatures in their efforts to conserve the species. Looking to hook onto Cod, Mackerel, Ocean Perch, or Tautog (just to name a few), well our 3-4 hour ground fishing expedition aboard the SeaFox is just the thing. Climb aboard with Captain Chris for an awesome fishing adventure. Rod, reel and bait all included.

I had been out whale watching with this company and their attention to detail and amazing service made me eager to book a fishing trip with them so we decided to do both the Sport Fishing option and the Shark Fishing!!!
The Sport Fishing adventure was a blast! The boat they use for fishing is FAST and soo much fun!! Captain Chris knows all the secret fishing spots in the bay as he's local and tells lots of stories from when he would fish with his dad and grandfather! We are on some big Cod right off the bat, we caught tons of Mackerel, ocean perch, pollock and lots of other fish! There were whales blowing everywhere we looked! That was day 1 for fishing, day 2 was even more freaking awesome!

Shark fishing started out with us fishing for bait - we were into the mackerel again. Once we had what we needed Captain Chris expertise came into play. These guys are the real deal - we hooked onto a HUGE shark within 45 minutes! The biologist on board talked to us about the research they do while we reeled in this amazing creature swimming around below us!! Finally, the shark was at the surface - what a show!!!! She was bigger than we ever expected!! Captain Chris and first mate Scott prepped the shark for the biologist who let us assist in the tagging process and then we released her (not before we got a ton of photos)!! This experience really was the fishing trip of a lifetime like they say!! YOU HAVE TO DO IT!!!!

If you've been planning on getting away for a day, what would be better than spending it fishing out on the ocean with the best experts around. There may be others, but these are definitely the guys to go with! We had a great experience. I had never been deep sea fishing before but Captain Chris and his first mate Scott taught us everything we needed to know and within a few short minutes we were fishing away. I caught the biggest fish that I have ever caught while on this trip and was smiling ear to ear, an awesome feeling! We also saw some whales, seals, a bald eagle, and porpoise while we were out. Captain Chris was very informative, he told us all about the different islands, and locations we passed by, along with many other things. Although very professional, Chris and Scott were also very friendly and pleasant to spend the day with. All in all a great trip, and we have decided to make it an annual trip. Thank you St.Andrews Sport Fishing Co!

Others claim to offer an incredible sport fishing adventure but none capture it like St. Andrews Sport Fishing Co. While you may see other options while in St. Andrews, do not be fooled by other claims. This is the ONLY boat that is truly outfitted to fish for sharks. The Captain Chris and his crew are experienced and are concerned about the conservation of sharks. They are also actively participating in shark research with biologists which makes for an added bonus to your trip. This 29 foot boat is fast so you spent more time fishing and less time travelling, low to the water so you can come in close contact with your catch, and it also ensures that the shark will be released unharmed, a key thing to consider. So, if you have an urge to experience this type of an adventure, call them. Do not even consider going with any others!!!

A foggy day to start, which you would think would dampen the trip, but it didn't. Saw a couple whales, seals, Canadian bald eagles, and porpoises. The captain Chris was great he was very knowledgable and got us on fish in no time. The trip got better and better, we caught multiple species and the 29 foot boat was very comfortable. I will be trying the shark fishing next time for sure
