the boat was extremely overcrowded and we spend most of the day with our lines tangled. The deckhands must be very underpaid because I saw one of them physically go after a customer who only tipped him $3.00 for cleaning his fish. The guy who won the pool for catching the biggest fish was expected to give half of his... More

I really enjoyed myself on this boat. I have been on about 70-80% of the open fishing boats in the area and this one is one of the better. Don't put too much stock in some of the negative reviews, go for yourself. We caught a lot of fish and it was a lot of fun. Of course there is... More

Let me first say if you are going fishing with your family or a couple friends then you will have a great time, but my issue that I had was with the lady who worked on the boat in the kitchen area. We had 12 of us on the boat and we wanted to bring a cooler of beers with... More

We did the 1/2 day fishing trip. The boat has free parking- although it is limited so you may be directed to on street parking. The ticket office which is clearly labelled, is between the two buildings as you look down the parking lot. You will board the boat that is located between the two buildings. Beware that in low...

I had a great fishing trip aboard the Yankee Clipper. I am not one who goes deep sea fishing on a repeated basis per year, but I do make it out when we visit the coast. The mates were very helpful and were great guys to be around. They were the hardest working men on the boat. I went on... More

I can't wait to fish with this fleet again. clean boats. great crew. we did the half day trip. went by real fast. snacks and beer available on board. you cannot bring your own alcohol. they fillet your catch for small fee. they supply poles and bait. great trip for the young and old. tons of small kids onboard fishing.

Spent a great day out on the water caught lots of fish 10 keepers got about 10 pounds of fillets. My arms were tired from reeling up all the fish. The crew was very helpful and the captain made sure we were on the fish. Will definitely be returning.

My wife and I went out on Yankee Fleet- Friday June 10th for some haddock! I was greeted on board by George (crew member) who was very friendly and helped us get situated for a full day of fishing!
