Falmouth Family Charters

Falmouth Family Charters is a little bit different from other Charters available in the area. Specializing in family oriented excursions that can combine a little bit of everything; fishing, sightseeing, swimming and picnicking, we want you to have a good time and aim to bring smiles to your families faces! Sure we love to fish, but that’s not all that the waters of Cape Cod and the Islands offer,and we want to share those experiences with you and your family aboard Scrimshaw.  Since we have families, we understand the importance of YOUR family, and focus on sharing our knowledge and providing kids of all ages( this includes you adults) with an opportunity to spend a wonderful day on the water.  We offer 2+ and 4 hour trips that while fishing focused, provide you with an opportunity to do a little more and experience a typical Cape Cod day if you would like.

Scrimshaw is a 29 foot Albermarle Express Sport Fish capable of fast cruising speeds and remarkable sea keeping.  Powered with reliable twin Volvo inboard diesel engines, the Scrimshaw is capable of cruising comfortably at 23kts! Scrimshaws arrangements include a queen bunk, enclosed stand up head, galley with refrigerator and mircrowave, hanging locker, and plenty of storage. Additionally, the vessel is equipped with all of the required safety equipment including life jackets and EPIRB.  There is also a Radar, Chartplotter GPS, color fishfinder, VHF Radio, and bluetooth compatable stereo on board.

Due to COVID-19, masks are required. All gear is sanitized after each trip and the boat is disinfected. And since the focus is on families with kids, the captain’s preference would be to keep any adult only trips to 4 passengers.  We want you to stay safe and have fun!
