We had a fantastic experience with Captain Ken Perry on the Viking Son. 

We were heading to Massachusetts for a family vacation and I booked the charter a month or two out. 

I booked this trip for four of us – Myself, my son and his girlfriend ( all from upstate NY), and my son in law (from Vermont).  I must admit I was a bit uneasy booking on-line with a boat and captain in New Bedford, MA that I knew nothing about, but the trip was beyond expectation!
The boat was beautiful.  Very clean and well maintained.  There was plenty of space for four of us.  The equipment on the boat was in great shape.  The rods and reels looked brand new, and worked flawlessly.  The cabin was comfortable, and the boat had all the comforts we needed. 
Captain Ken was very professional, very personable, and easy to talk to.  He has some great experience at sea, and really knew how to handle the boat.  Ken knew the waters very well, and knew where the fish would be. 

Like I said, our fishing experience was way beyond expectation!  Ken told me his job was to get us into some fish.  He definitely delivered on that and then some!  We all caught a lot of fish!  There was never really a lull.  We were into them the whole time we had our lines in the water.  We caught Scup and Sea Bass.  They weren’t all keepers, but that didn’t matter.  We had a great afternoon, left with a lot of fish, some great memories, and made a great new friend in Ken. 

Thank you, Ken, for a great time.  We will be booking again with you the next time we get out to Massachusetts!
