Our fishing trips are hands-on and interactive, unlike some of those Florida-style charters where you sit in a padded armchair in the cockpit and wait for a fish to bite. It's an active day, with the continuous re-setting of rods and lines and following the larger hooked fish around the boat requiring some agility. Therefore, our trips are best suited to folks in reasonably good physical condition.
As for the younger set, we do enjoy having kids aboard. However, our fishing trips may be a bit much for those under age 10 or 12. We encourage you to talk over your plans with us before planning to bring anyone younger. Thanks for your understanding.
SIGHTSEEING: We offer private sightseeing excursions around the Boothbay Harbor Region. You'll see lighthouses, waterfront homes, lots of boats, shipyards, islands, lobstermen hauling their traps, maybe a few seals, seabirds, and other wildlife -- all from a comfortable vantage point on the water, and all in calm, protected waters. We can take up to 5 passengers for sightseeing. Rates (for the boat) are $150 for the first hour, and $95 for each additional hour (2-hour minimum). We have a large cooler with ice for any drinks and snacks you'd like to bring along, plus a pair of top-quality Nikon binoculars you are welcome to use.
DEPOSIT: We require a $100 deposit on all trips booked in advance. Checks should be made out to Shark Six Charters, LLC. and sent to: Capt. Barry Gibson, 19 Royall Rd., East Boothbay, ME 04544. PLEASE INCLUDE YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS AND WE WILL ACKNOWLEDGE RECEIPT OF YOUR DEPOSIT AND CONFIRM DATE OF CHARTER. If the Shark Six is unable to go on the day scheduled due to inclement weather, etc., your deposit will be cheerfully returned in full or we can schedule another day for the trip, your choice. Payment for the deposit and the trip may be made in cash, personal check, or travelers' checks. NOTE: WE ARE UNABLE TO ACCEPT CREDIT CARDS FOR DEPOSIT OR CHARTER FEE. There are several ATMs available in Boothbay Harbor if needed.
