Tuna Tyem Charters

American Way
Dennis MA, United States

Tuna Tyme Charters invites you to spend a day or three with a professional crew chasing Giant Bluefin Tuna off the coast of Dennis, Massachusetts. If you want to catch big game fish, they are the boat you want to charter!

By having a captain and a mate onboard, you get more rods in the water, baits back out faster and someone is always making sure your baits are swimming weed free and perfect to get bitten. They offer inshore Striped Bass that last eight hours and can also bring in Bluefish, Porgy, and more for up to 6 persons.

Tuna fishing east of Cape Cod and Chatham is excellent, with 14-hour long trips in order to get you to the destination, give you good fishing time, and bring you back.

If you are feeling very adventurous, you can book a Georges Bank giant Bluefin Tuna trip that lasts a minimum of two days. This trip is very long, covering approximately 350 nautical miles, so prepare for a real offshore experience. The boat sleeps 4 persons, of which 2 are crew, so the trip is limited to 2 guests to ensure comfort for everyone.

Alternatively, you can take a three-day Canyon trip and target a multitude of species such as Marlins, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Swordfish, Cod, and more. These trips accommodate from 2 to 4 anglers who are fine with sleeping in beds and on bean bags, or taking turns on the 4 beds available on board. This trip is fun and requires lots of positive energy and arm strength for reeling in massive catch!

The boat is a 36’ Dawson Express cruiser originally built in 2000 and re-powered in 2015 with twin 450 HP Cummins engines. With a maximum cruising speed of 23 knots, it is fast and reliable for offshore fishing. It features all the safety and navigational equipment you can think of, a set of outriggers, a full toilet, kitchen, 4 beds, a fighting chair, a flybridge, and more.

Tuna Tyme Charters provides Penn, Shimano, and Diawa rods and reels, lures, dead and frozen bait on inshore trips, and Mackerel is caught as live bait for Tuna.
