    Located between two rich feeding grounds

    Located between two rich feeding grounds

    Gloucester is located between Stellwagen Bank, to the south, and Jeffrey’s Ledge to the north. Stellwagen National Marine Sanctuary is home to one of the world’s richest feeding grounds. Unlike areas such as Boston, Plymouth, Cape Cod, Newburyport and other places who have access to only one of these areas, we can go to where we think is the best opportunity to bring home the day’s catch!

    We have the most experience bringing customers to where the fish are!

    For over 60 years, we have been exploring the local waters for the best fishing spots. We have more experience than anyone else. Many of our captains have been with us for over 20 years. The reason we can boast such employee loyalty is that we have fun! We do this because we love it. We know where the fish are, and we know how to make your experience FUN!

    Party boat fishing

    Our vessels were designed for party boat fishing

    Our boats were designed to give our customers the best Deep Sea Fishing experience. We allow plenty of elbow room and deck space for everyone. Other operators have converted commercial boats for party trips, leaving little deck space and comfort. We have comfortable bathrooms, and inside cabin with booths and a snack shop that offers a wide variety of meals and snacks and beverages. We have recently re-powered our boats with high horsepower engines for fast and reliable service, to get you to the fishing grounds quickly.
