FV Odysea

FV Odysea welcomes you for a fun-packed day of fishing out of Provincetown, Massachusetts! Come aboard the famous FV Odysea you recently had the opportunity to see on National Geographic’s amazing "Wicked Tuna" show and have a great time fishing the area’s bountiful inshore and offshore grounds. You and Captain Ralph Wilkins will target any species in season, be it big or small. Combine your fishing trip with a boat ride or seal tour and have a wonderful time fishing in Massachusetts!

Your boat for the day is a restored 32’ BHM Downeast, with room for up to 6 anglers. It runs on a 375 HP Caterpillar 3208 engine and uses comprehensive navigation electronics needed for a safe and efficient trip to the fish. There’s a shower, bed, as well as a portable toilet you can use. The boat also features downriggers, a livewell, and an ice-box.

You and the captain will go after Bluefin Tuna, Spanish Mackerel, Herring, Striped Bass, as well as Bluefish. You’ll attract them by deep sea fishing, trolling, jigging, and even kite fishing. You can keep the fish you catch and take it home. Kids are welcome to come aboard, just tell the captain how many will be coming so he can prepare enough safety jackets.

Capt. Ralph provides you with all the rods for the trip, you may bring your reels and terminal tackle as well.  Also, bring something to eat and drink so you stay fit during the trip. The captain also takes care of fishing licenses. Spend a day fishing with FV Odysea and create lovely memories on the water!

Our trips are priced for 4 guests and we are licensed for 6. Additional person $50 per trip for half day trip, $100 for the entire day.

Note: available For sundown cruises, fishing is an option during it .
It’s more of a slow boat ride close to dock around the lighthouses and seal colonies, great for conversations contact for details . Fishing for whatever is permitted
