Open boat trips are ideal for anglers who’d like to experience the comforts of a private charter but may not have enough people to book one. These trips are great opportunities to meet like-minded anglers and build new friendships while catching big fish within sight of the NYC skyline. The number next to each date represents how many spots are available.

2019 Open Boat Schedule and Rates



LADY L CHARTERS (BK) – $130 ($140 non-members)


FV GYPSEA (QNS) – $130 (members) $140 (non-members)

11/29 – 6am-3pm – 6 – Blackfish – $150 +tip

* Rates do not include 20% tip for the first mate.

Disclaimer: Until a trip is fully booked there’s chance that it will be cancelled if the captain gets a charter who books the trip before all six spots are filled. If that should happen you’ll receive a credit for a future trip; the same rule applies if the captain has to cancel due to weather.
With the exception of those two reasons all payments are non-refundable and once you pay for a date you may not switch to another.
