“Absolutely loved it!”

Cap'n Kids Fishing Adventures
Reviewed July 10, 2013

My husband and I took our 3 boys, ages 4,6, and 8 fishing this summer with Cap'n kids. They had a blast, actually, we all did! Captain Carl and crew were quite friendly and very helpful. From the moment we checked in with the staff to the moment we finished our trip, it was pleasant all around. It was a nice relief to be able to trust such a good and informative staff. The boat ride was smooth, which helped being that my children have never gone out fishing on a boat before. The ride to the fishing area is fairly quick, also good for unexperienced riders. Then came the fishing part, every person on the boat caught multiple fish. The staff and captain helped everyone with their fishing rods. They helped bait the hooks and release all the fish. They even made sure they took a moment for the children to pose with their fish for pictures. Oh, and we can't forget the lobster/crab trap! After showing everyone how to bait the trap, we were able to see how many crabs were caught. The children were taught how to hold the crabs and then.....it was a crab frenzy! the crew released the crabs on deck and the children were able to chase them and throw them overboard! I can't speak highly enough about our experience. Great people, great service, all around great time! You will not regret taking a trip with Cap'n Kids! We look forward to doing this again next year!

A great mini fishing trip for children and their parents. Two hours total time. They drop a crab pot and pick it up on way back then let crabs out and show children how to throw them back. Kids swab the deck on the way in to port. About an hour fishing time which is about right for this age. Everyone in our group caught at least one fish. Very friendly and helpful crew. Highly recommend it for this age group.

The boat was filled with kids between 2-12. We quickly got out to the fishing spot and lowered the lines where everyone caught fish almost immediately. I think my two kids pulled in about 10 fish in the little over an hour we were actually fishing. I didn't fish much myself because I was too busy baiting the kids hooks and then releasing the fish we caught. There isn't enough staff to help all the families so if you are squeamish about touching fish or bait, this may not be the trip for you. The fishing is not really challenging since it's bottom fishing, but for the young kids, it's pretty cool to drop line and pull up a foot long sea bass. You'll get some cool pictures the kids will enjoy for long time.

Our 2-1/2 old son started show interest in fishing on our trip, so we decided to go on this trip.

It was one of best decision we made. The crew of the boat couldn't have been nicer with us and to our son. Besides fishing, they showed the kids about lobster traps .

Here's a sample of what day was like: when they saw that our son was getting frustrated that he could not catch a fish. They caught one without him noticing it and made him reeling it in so it seems like he caught it. It was nicest jesture one could make so our son could enjoy the moment. That's just priceless.

We were enjoying the trip so much that even 2 hours seem short.

Defintely, highlight of our trip! Thank you to the captain and the crew.

Lastly, how about ice cream at Sundae school after the trip..., it's right down the road.

Brought my two daughters (aged 7 & 9) on our recent vacation to the Cape. We all had a wonderful time thanks to Captain Larry and his crew. Right from the beginning when he picks you up at the ticket booth and walks you to the boat, until the end the crew is very engaging and helpful - especially with the kids. They took pictures whenever we asked, baited our hooks when needed, and removed the fish off the hooks. My girls caught a bunch of fish, although none of them big enought to keep. They loved holding the many spider crabs that they pulled up in their trap.

The boat seemed very well maintained and safe, bathrooms were very clean, and they even offered a few snacks at very reasonable prices (unusual for Cape Cod). All in all it was a great experience and well worth the money.
