Day-off Charters – Adventures Tailored to You

Do you want to experience the beauty of the Atlantic Ocean and the fantastic life that lurks below the surface? Are you looking for a new experience or craving an adventure? Captain Bill and Day-off Charters invite you to join them aboard for a fantastic day of fishing and looking for amazing sea life off the coast of New Hampshire and Massachusetts. Meet the crew in Newburyport, MA and make beautiful memories on the water.

Being USCG OUPV/Six-Pack licensed as well as CPR and first aid certified, Captain Bill is prepared to safely take you and your friends and family out on the water. Whether you want to reel in the big fish or relax on the bow seating with a beverage while listening to your favorite playlist, we will custom tailor your package to fit your needs. Ideal for couples and families, bachelor/bachelorette gatherings, anniversaries (or a proposal!), birthdays, and more!

Your adventure will take place on the captain’s safe, comfortable, and pristine 25’ 2021 Yamaha FSH255 Sport E. The boat can take 6 guests and is powered by twin 250 HP Yamaha engines. The boat has a toilet with privacy, an ice-box, and a wireless trolling motor.

The species you and the crew will go after include Striped Bass, Cod, Haddock, Rockfish, Atlantic Mackerel, Sculpin, Pollock, and Whiting. To reel them in, you can bottom fish, deep sea fish, and jig.

Rods, reels, tackle, and bait are all provided for you, and no fishing license is needed as you are covered under the captain’s license. Your fish will be cleaned and filleted for you to take home. The captain also provides water but feel free to bring any other drinks and snacks you like.

Day-off Charters is also available for lake charters at Lake Winnisquam in Laconia, NH for fishing, cruising, kneeboarding, and relaxing at the sandbar.

Reach out and ask the crew how it can help you make some amazing memories!
