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. Trips are discounted for members (on 2/3 boats) at $110, non-members are welcome to join but pay $130. The number next to each date represents how many spots are available as of now.

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.
