Captain Bob and Artie are the best! We had a great time fishing lots of striped bass. This will definitely be one of our most memorable memories from our summer stay in Cape Cod. We highly recommend Cape Cod Family Charters!

I don’t do many reviews but I have to brag about CCFC! We took our 2 kids, 5 and 9, on their first fishing charter. Capt. Bob is nice and deckhand, Arthur, is amazing with the kids! We all had an amazing time, caught a bunch of fish and had so many laughs! My son was asking when we could fish with them again before we even got off the boat! We will definitely go back with them when we come back to the area! Thank you Capt. Bob and Arthur for a most memorable fishing trip! My kids will never forget it!

We had an absolutely fantastic time going out with Capt. Bob and first mate Arthur! The boat is very comfortable for a group of 6 with indoor space to retreat from the elements when you need a break from the sun. The fishing was great with 14 reeled in and several keepers. A perfect experience for our family, especially our two young boys!

We had an amazing trip! Captain Rob and his mate Arthur kept us on the fish and the trip did not disappoint. They did a great job of keeping our kids engaged the entire time. The boat was comfortable and it was nice to have the option to get out of the sun. Overall top notch experience!
