Enjoy the world of fishing aboard the Skipper. Captain John knows Vineyard waters and you will catch fish. I have gone fishing a number of times. It’s great family fun. Don’t miss a day on the Skipper when visiting the Vineyard.

My son and I had a terrific fishing trip on the skipper. Our 7th year in a row. Garreth was friendly and helpful and the slack tide had everyone reeling in fish by the bucket load
