Google ReviewsLindsay Sa year agoThis was our first time booking a fishing charter and I wasn’t sure what to expect, especially bringing our 6 year old who loved to fish off a lake dock. Our 4 hour afternoon fishing trip with Cape Cod Family Fishing Charters turned out to be the highlight of our entire Cape Cod vacation! We caught plenty of stripped bass, blue fish, and even a sea bass- it was so exciting! Captain Bob and Arthur went the extra mile to provide my 6 year old with her own special pole and set up- she ended up catching the biggest fish of the day and was so proud! Would definitely book a charter with them ...Brooke Sugaski3 years agoOur family had a great day with Captain Bob and his first mate, Artie. We thoroughly enjoyed the four hour charter. We departed at 6:30am and enjoyed the beautiful sunrise while we had a lovely ride out to our first location. Within the first 30 minutes, we caught multiple Bass and some of the biggest Blue Fish we’ve ever seen. Captain Bob was very knowledgeable, navigating his way to the best spots for fish. Artie was a lovely first mate, keeping our family (with two kids) entertained, while teaching us how to reel in our catches. It was a great day, and we would be excited to return next...George Nenni12 years agoThe funnest part of our Cape Cod vacation, Captains Bob and Nick were fantastic. My wife and I had our 4 young children, including girls 5 and 7, and everyone had a great time. We caught several nice sized fish, including 6 very large Striped Bass, which Nick cleaned, filleted, and bagged for us. We grilled them up that week, and hauled the rest back to Ohio on ice. We've been deep sea fishing a few times, and this was the best experience by far. They went out of their way to find calm waters, and plenty of fish. Captain Bob had the helm, and Nick took care of everything else. I highly ...Vanessa Reynolds4 years agoCaptain Bob & first mate Arthur made our kids first fishing trip a memorable one! The boat was clean & comfortable. It was chilly in the morning and it was nice to be able to go inside to get out of it. We caught 9 striped bass with two of them being large enough to keep. The largest one was 38”. Arthur cleaned and filleted them for us. We had our 2, 4, and 6 year old with us and they were all included in the experience. It was a top notch experience and we’d love to fish with them again when we’re back next year!
