      Jimmy and Wanda were AMAZING! Great communication leading up to our charter and beyond accommodating when we were on their boat. The boat was spacious and had great areas to hang out and enjoy the weather and views. Highly recommend. We'll be booking again soon.

      Luxury Party boat in the Boston Harbor!

      Had a wonderful time on Tracy’s boat. It was exactly as described and the captain Michael was great. He was polite, accommodating and friendly. We were a group of 13 and it was very comfortable. Tracy is very responsive. Even though We had a but of a hiccup with the final pickup location as both Tracy and I forgot to exchange the phone # of the captain so we started the ride a bit late but Michael accommodated us for the delay but giving us extra time at departure. Thank you and I highly recommend!

      Jimmy was an incredible captain! I booked a ride with Jimmy for my sister’s bachelorette party and it was truly amazing! All the girls and I had tons of fun. We felt so welcome and comfortable and will definitely be booking again. The entire experience was one of a kind!

      Luxury Party boat in the Boston Harbor!

      Tracy and Michael are the best! They are so responsive and accommodating. We booked the boat for my fiancé’s 30th birthday and we all had a blast! We were able to make a pit stop at encore casino halfway through and then made it back out in time to watch the sunset over the city skyline. Highly recommend!

      Enjoy Fishing In Gloucester, Massachusetts With Captain Dana

      Dana was great! I had him show me the area in my boat so I could get comfortable in new waters. Dana was helpful with launching, showing some great family spots as well as knowing the history for the harbor. Great time all around.
