Vacation Planning | Cape Cod Fishing Charters in Massachusetts
One of the places we want to visit next year is Cape Cod because my husband loves to fish and we want to book a few Cape Cod Fishing Charters since we plan on taking several friends and family members up there with us. When it comes to booking your charter there are really a lot of options available to you.
You can book a charter on a boat that will fit 6 comfortably or you can go big and book one that holds 50+ people...it really depends on how many people will be in your group. You will find privately owned charter boats and company owned charter boats, although we prefer booking the family-owned charter boats because we feel we get better individualized customer service with those.
Some of the charter boats have indoor and outdoor seating while others just have outdoor seating. We even found a few that have an onboard snack bar so we can grab a bite to eat or get something to drink while spending our day out on the sea. If your boat doesn't have a snack bar you want to make sure you back some lunches and beverages to take on board.
Another thing to keep in mind when booking your charter is that some of them charge by the hour and others charge by the day. If you only plan on staying out there for 2-3 hours than it is better to pay by the hour. However, if your fishing party plans on spending most of the day out there fishing...it would be cheaper to pay for the entire day at once.
We have gotten charters before down in Maryland and New Jersey so we are really excited about seeing Cape Cod and doing some fishing up there come spring 2012. It should be a great trip and one to remember for years to come.
