Captain Dave and his mate were awesome! They were great with my young kids, educated them with the ins and outs of commercial lobster industry. Our family had a great time! The kids were able to help the captain band the lobster claws and help him throw the cages back in. I highly recommend them if you're in the area.

Striper fishing is something my husband and father-in-law have always wanted to do and we thought the kids would enjoy as well. After researching different charters, we decided on Billingsgate as there were so many positive reviews. Everyone was spot on with their praise for this charter as Dave and Ted made this an excellent experience. They interacted wonderfully with... More

My wife, our 26 year old daughter and I went on the combination lobstering/fishing trip. David and Ted were terrific hosts on the water. They offered interesting information about local history and geography. But most fascinating was learning about lobstering. Pulling the traps, analyzing the catch, learning about protecting egg-bearing females, and the competitive nature of the business. We then... More

My family had the best time with Captain Dave and Ted fishing and catching lobsters. My four kids can't stop talking about it--and we each got to take home the lobsters and fish we caught! A perfect afternoon--and it's obvious how much Captain Dave and Ted love being with children. This was our second trip and we will definitely do... More

It was a wonderful day with Dave and Ted. First time go sport fishing and got 4 stripped bass in about 3 hours. It was a bass fishing trip but Dave also showed us how his lobster cage works. Plug Ted was a biology teacher and a story talker, fun and educational! High recommended.

We went fishing for stripped bass and lobster with captain Dave. He was really good especially with the teenage boys. He was really good to help then with fishing and everyone was able to get a hit on a bass. When it was time for lobster fishing, he explained how it worked really well and asked the boys to help....

We shoved off on Monday the 1st for our 3rd year with Capt. Dave and Ted. Each year differs, but the fishing is always fun. No less than the beauty of the open water and sky is the excitement of the mystery of whether a fish will hit and whether you will land and keep it. Our party of 4... More

Our family's experience with Billingsgate Charters is a memory that we will truly treasure forever! Dave and Ted were welcoming, informative, encouraging, and went out of their way to ensure the experience was perfect for our family. I want to stress this experience is wonderful and appropriate for all ages. My brother and I (ages late 20's to early 30's)... More

Captain Dave and his first mate, Ted, took my daughter, two of her friends (all 11 years old) and me out for a 4 hour lobstering expedition. The kids had an absolute blast -- as did I. Captain Dave and Ted (who is a biology teacher for the rest of the year) engaged the kids in all the activities, and... More
