I've been out deep sea fishing with all the available deep sea fishing boat captains and Al Gauron's Fishing Trips are the best bang for the buck. Of course there are no guarantees you will ever catch a fish but this group of expert captains make every effort to make sure your investment of a day at sea pays off.... More

We had a great experience whale watching last week on the north star, we were out an extra hour because the captain of boat went all the way back when he was told other boats had seen whales, we went back and saw "owl" the humpback whale, we also saw minky whales, and a school of atlantic white sided dolphins,...

(I'm just cutting and pasting the email I sent to Al Gauron's, this morning. I would recommend Eastman's or Yankee Fleet, instead. Never again doing Al Gauron's, unless I hear that they clean up their act.) Hey there, I usually do not send emails that are negative, to companies, but I really felt like I had to in this case....

This was my first whale watch. I did see one Dolphin and a few smaller whales and one seal. They were all too small and quick to get a picture of though. Definitely will go back and try again. The ride and the crew were great though and had a lovely boat ride.

We did the whale watching tour. My comments: very knowledgeable guide; 4 hours may be long for some; eat before because the food is very basic (microwaved pizza, corn dogs, ...); we saw fin whales and "mink" whale (i think...); arrive 45 mins in advance to sit in good spot on top of ship; bring a sweater-can be cold even...

Stopped here to talk about a fishing trip and we ended up booking a fireworks cruise for our group of 11. It was a nice ride out to the Isle of Shoals and then back to anchor off shore to watch the fireworks show. Where else can you take a 3 hour cruise for $15.00 and see a great show... More

When the season hits we (my friends and i) find something we can bond and do. Introducing al gauron and his clean and friendly boat. Many people will complain about what kind of fish they are getting, the weather conditions or stuff like that. I say focus on what is done for you. Fast and efficient crew members that work... More

I love going on boats but really wasn't looking forward to fish. No problem, the crew is great so I had fun fishing without having to worry about taking a fish off the hook. I recommend this for a fun time.

Great time out with Al Gauron's ...little pricey as my 3 boys are all considered adults so have to pay the higher fee....(they are 12, 14 & 16). Once checked in, we got on the boat...on our little over an hour ride, we were lucky enough to see 4 whales...once at our first destination, we dropped our lines... Caught lots... More

The captain and crew were very friendly and helpful. We were first time ocean fishers so didn't know what to expect. My husband and I each caught about 20 fish and had a lot of fun. Echo and Skip, as well as the captain had a great sense of humor. We can't wait to go back. Parking was very convenient... More
