Our Professional Captains have verified credentials, are held to the highest ethical standards and are out on the water everyday often acting as the shepherds of their area. For this event, our Captains have not only donated their time but their boats, mates and proven fishing techniques. Our Connecticut fishing charter and party boats will provide you with a safe, relaxing and memorable day on the water. All of the boats in our association meet strict U.S.C.G. safety, navigational, permit and license requirements. You also do not need a saltwater fishing license when fishing on any of our boats.
