“Whale watching”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

My family and I went whale watching with Eastman's. It was a great experience. The crew had a great sense of humor and the whole boat had about 15-18 people on board. It was nice to go on a whale watch with such a small group because it was easy to get really fantastic photos of whales without battling a crowd.

“One of the best around”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

Eastman's offers a number of different charters. If you are a hard core fisherman, go on a marathon or early or late in the season. November and December trips are usually blood-baths. During the summer, Mid summer offshore full day trips can sometimes hit the doldrums but if there are fish out there, Eastmans will put you on them. The rest is up to you. They also run half day mackerel or flounder trips. These are good for the kids.

“Great time for entire family”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

We had a ton of fun going out on a short fishing trip, because the kids never been out on a boat before, we started out with a short trip, the crew hit a nice school of fish in not time at all and the kids were laughing and smiling the entire trip.

“GREAT OPERATION”
Reviewed June 4, 2012

I have fished Eastmans boats for many years. They are a top notch operation and catch fish. If you go in July /August and don't want to deal with tourists charter one of their 6 pack boats.. All Eastmans captians are excellent. Nate runs one of the 6 pack boats and is a great young eager captain who finds fish and he filets fish like a machine. Their marathons usually have more experienced fishermen. All the charter boats have tourists in the summer months and Eastmans does not overcrowd like some of the others. If you want to avoid crowds and dogfish go early or late in the season or go on a marathon of private charter. Capt Lee Godin

“Eastmans stinks!”
Reviewed August 5, 2011

They overcrowd their boats bringing the tourist to fish for dinks. The bait is old and if fishing is ok the bait runs out to give them an excuse to end the trip early. They are there for the tourist crowd - most which never either have been fishing nor on a boat. For them it is likely a good day on the water but the havoc they cause the real fishermen with tangles. By the way the mates will waste much of your fish when they fillet so do not expect much fish at the end of the day. Do not go there to be herded like cattle to slaughter!
