Chartered two boats and the fishing wasn't good that day; but one captain did everything he could and we got 4 salmon including a King Salmon about 30 lbs. The other boat didn't fare as well, this captain basically took us on a 5 hour boat ride; little of no effort to make the best of a bad fishing day.... More

ALWAYS a great time. The Captain's never stop working! They are always doing their best to catch fish. A very enjoyable experience for couples with extremely clean boats, excellent equipment and even clean and bag your catch. Hook up with Nicky Boy. They are keepers!😀

I've worked with Sharon, owner of Nickey Boy Charters, the past two years on a charity fishing tournament and can only say great things about her passion and dedication to help others. Sharon and the Charter Captains are extremely personable and go above and beyond to make sure each fishing trip is memorable and a great experience for everyone.

This was my first time on a charter trip of any kind. It was wonderful. The captain was knowledgeable and the fact that the fish were biting made it that much more enjoyable. I would highly recommend this to others.

A captain that gives his all the whole time we were fishing is how I would describe Chris. Our fabulous time was enhanced by weather that was perfect. We have chartered with Nicky Boy for the past 12 years because we consistently get our limit or nearly the limit and receive excellent service.
