Go fishing in style! Class Act Charters offers a year-round adventure for all of those who want a memorable day on the water. Your host and guide on this trip will be Captain Neal, from Gwynn’s Island in Mathews County, Virginia. He has over 35 years of experience in the Chesapeake Bay, fishing both for pleasure and commercially. His knowledge of these waters is guaranteed to get you the fish you’ve always wanted.

You’ll be fishing on a very spacious 43’ Donelle boat. The capacity is limited to 6 guests, so everyone can fish in comfort. Newly restored in 2021, the boat features a 500 HP John Deere engine and modern navigational electronics. You can also enjoy an enclosed cabin, a galley, a private toilet, and take a nap if you get tired of fishing.

During your full day trip, you’ll explore different fishing grounds, until you find the spot with the best action. Some of the species you can catch here are Sheepshead, Black Drum, Redfish, Spanish Mackerel, Cobia, and many more. There are multiple techniques you can learn to catch these, just follow the captain’s lead.

All fishing equipment and licenses are included in the price. This means that you only need to take care of your food and drinks. If you’re taking your trip on a hot, sunny day, make sure to have your sun protection with you.

You’re guaranteed to have a great time! Class Act Charters welcomes you aboard!
