Can’t say thank you enough to John and his crew aboard the skipper for an amazing day on the water. If you are looking for a good time with good people this charter will definitely not disappoint! We even caught some fish too! 😉

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.
