Captain Al’s Fishing Charters

Design your own fishing adventure with Captain Al’s Fishing Charters, a first-rate provider of private fishing charters out of the Montauk Harbor, New York. Whether you are looking for a day of family fun, a hard-core sportfishing adventure, or an enjoyable corporate outing, Captain Al Cacciola and his team will help you put together a fishing charter ideally suited to your wants and needs.

You will be fishing aboard a 38’ Bertram boat that is fitted with two 450 HP powerful Detroit engines for speed and reliability. The boat features a full galley, a head (marine toilet), and a covered, air-conditioned cabin to keep you comfortable whatever the weather. With a very wide beam, the boat gives a comfortable ride, and its extremely spacious deck will allow everyone to get involved throughout the trip.

Captain Al’s Fishing Charters target a wide range of species on a variety of specially-designed trips that range from a three-hour evening trip targeting Striped Bass to extreme overnight adventures. Choose between fishing inshore, offshore, at the canyons, or around Block Island, and target species from Fluke to Cod to White Marlin.

Whichever option you go for, Captain Al will do his best to make sure it is a trip to remember. Top-notch gear by Penn and Shimano will be available for you to use, along with live bait and everything else you need to make a great catch possible. The only thing that’s missing is you!
