Family owned and operated for over thirty-nine years, Captain’s Fishing Parties has grown into one of the most versatile and accommodating fleets on the North Shore. 

Christos Charos began Captain’s Fishing Parties with a six-person boat used for bass fishing. He took people out fishing after work and on weekends, hoping to expand his side job into a company he could pass on to his children. His son George helped build the business after they purchased property at the Northern tip of Plum Island in the early seventies. Today, George has handed Captain’s Fishing Parties over to his two sons Chris and (George) Ryan. Because of their success the company has grown to include four passenger vessels used for guided fishing trips, live music cruises and much more.

Over the years they have become an industry leader in providing the finest fishing and cruising experiences for guests of all ages. Offering an array of different open ocean excursions and event cruises, Captain’s Fishing Parties sets the standard for quality service and on the water hospitality.
