Top Fishing Charters in Dennis


Overlooking Cape Cod Bay, the charming town of Dennis, MA, revolves around fishing. It’s no surprise, then, that fishing charters in Dennis Port are aplenty. Hit the shallow waters of the vast bay or head beyond to the open waters of the Atlantic, and you’re in for a true East Coast angling adventure. 
 
When it comes to the East Coast, one nearshore creature trumps them all – Striped Bass. These tough-fighting monsters grow to incredible sizes in the Cape Cod Bay, and anglers from all over the world flock here to do battle with them. Add prized Bluefish and delicious Fluke, Scup, Tautog, and Seabass to the mix, and you have everything you could want. 
 
Of course, it’s not just the bay that attracts tourists. The deep waters of the Atlantic are well within reach on a Dennis fishing charter. Just 30 miles out, you’ll hit the famous Stellwagen Bank where monster Bluefin Tuna like to gather. Not only that, but you’ll also come across Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, and even Blue and Mako Sharks if you time your trip right!
 
Whatever you’re looking for, fishing charters in Dennis Port have it. Bring the kids aboard for a couple of hours to test the waters, or opt for popular four to six-hour trips. The keener angler among you will relish the chance to hit the bay for a full day, with offshore trips lasting as long as 16 hours or a few days on the water.

Although the weather beat us up quite a bit the fishing was worth it! Captain John was very professional and knowledgeable. He put our safety and comfort as priority. The Kate Jim was patient as well as knowledgeable for this first time striper angler. I had a ball fishing with these guys! You will too if you book with the Grey Dolphin Sportsfishing Charter. The marina was easily located and there was ample parking.
