Deep Sea Fishing Charter

We offer a Deep sea fishing charter from the Wedgeport wharf (where our large tour boat is located) in our 25’ center console vessel where we catch cod and haddock. This tour is dependent on the tide so times vary and the trip usually lasts 4.5 hours.

The cost is $115 tax included per person. A 2 person minimum is required. At the end of the day, we fillet the fish for you so you can take it home and enjoy a delicious fish fry!

For an extra fee of $115 tax included (total, not per person) we can stop by on big Tusket island and do a catch/clean/cook with your haddock if the facilities are available that day.

(Cost on this tour is per person and you may be joined with another group if you’re a small party.)

Shark Fishing Charter

New to our fleet is our 30’ offshore striper boat located in Yarmouth harbor (near Rudders restaurant). We offer a shark fishing charter with this vessel where you chum and catch sharks, reel them in, tag them for DFO science purposes and release them. While chumming for sharks we also bottom fish for cod and haddock that you can also keep (just like on our other charter).

The cost for shark fishing is:

$1200 – Full day. (9hrs)
$800 – Half-day (5 hrs)
$1200 – Evening option (6 hrs)

Evening fishes are highly recommended. We typically fish from 5:00 pm to 11:00 pm but we can alter the times a bit if you choose. The reason we recommend this package is because once the sun sets the shark are attracted to the vessel lights and are often spotted swimming around the boat and the fishing can be much better.

(Costs for shark vessels are for the full vessel & captain. You can bring anywhere from 1-7 people.)
