Coastal Excursions

269 Millway
Barnstable MA, United States

Operating out of Barnstable, Massachusetts, Coastal Excursions provide customized fishing trips in the historic Cape Cod. Run by a family team that knows when and where the fish are biting, this company will make sure that your fishing trip is one to remember.

You will be fishing aboard a spacious 27 ft Ocean Master center console that has ample fishing space for up to six anglers. With a T-Top for shade and a toilet facility within the center console, the boat is a comfortable base from which to enjoy the nautical features of the area. And with a full range of electronics and top of the range gear supplied on board, it also provides the opportunity for serious fishermen to hook a fish to remember.

Depending on the season, conditions, tide, and bite, you could be fishing anywhere from the flats off Sandy Neck, to Race Point, to the popular Billingsgate Shoal. Trips can be tailored to suit your needs, and as Coastal Excursions only launch one charter per day you will not be rushed for time. Whether you want to feel the thrill of targeting trophy Striped Bass at night, traveling out in search of huge Bluefin Tuna, or bottom fishing for Flounder and Seabass, the experienced team will make sure you are equipped with the best gear, equipment, and rig for whatever is biting.

What you do with the fish you catch is entirely up to you: whether you like to practise catch and release, to cook your catch over a fire pit on the beach, or take you cleaned and filleted fresh fish home with you, Coastal Excursions will be happy to assist you in any way they can.

These guys are amazing! I took my 2 sons on this charter in hopes of catching a handful of nice striped bass. We caught that and then some! We caught 14 nice fish. 12 of them were 26” or bigger. 4 of them were over 31”. My 12 year old and 14 year old were entertained and excited the whole trip. From catching the mackerel to use as bait right through their final casts they had a ball! I cannot recommend these guys any higher to you! They know their fishing and how to please!!!! Do yourself a favor and book with them…you won’t be sorry! I guarantee it!
