Striper Fishing Charters
The Southern Maine coast is home to many fish species, including Striped Bass, Pollock, Mackerel, and Bluefish. Captain Dave’s fishing knowledge and experience helps him find some of the best fishing hot-spots in the Kennebunkport area. Our fishing trips range from 3 to 6 hours, depending on your interest.
We encourage catch-and-release fishing practices, but are happy to clean your catch if you choose to bring it home for dinner. Kids are welcome on fishing trips, although children younger than 8-10 tend to lose interest if it’s quiet. Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult.
Shark Fishing – New this Spring!
We will target four species of sharks on our trips including Blue Shark, the most common shark in our waters. Porbeagle and Thresher sharks are also common and make for exciting fishing. The Mako shark inhabits the waters off the Kennebunks. This strong aerial acrobatic shark can sometimes leap 12 to 15 feet into the air. On shark trips, it will be common to see plenty of sea life including Minke whales, Fin Back whales and an occasional Humpback whale. For more information on shark fishing charters, please call.
Hands-on Family Fun Excursions
Haul Lobster Traps!
We can squeeze a lot of fun into a 2 or 3 hour Family Fun Excursion! Depending on your group’s interests, we can visit local islands where seals are abundant, tour the coves immediately surrounding Walker’s Point, home to the Bush family. We may visit Cape Porpoise where the beautiful Goat Island Lighthouse is located and, depending on the tide, we might be able to dock at the island and visit the lighthouse. We can haul real lobster traps, and try our luck at mackerel fishing. We can even ride to Perkins Cove for an ice cream–the possibilities are endless!
There is no better way to explore the Kennebunk area than taking a scenic boat tour. Relax for an afternoon or evening and observe seabirds, seals, and other wildlife. Occasionally we see an ocean sunfish or a shark. Visit beaches and coves along the rugged Maine coastline, see lighthouses, working fishing vessels, Walker’s Point, and dramatic sunsets. Breathe in the clean salt air for 2 or 3 hours!
What to Bring
To make your experience more enjoyable, we suggest you bring a bagged lunch, snacks, beverages, rain gear, light jackets, sunscreen and sunglasses. The weather can change quickly on the water, so it’s best to be prepared. You’ll want your camera too!
