Boat and equipment are first class

Magnificent day on the water watching an 11 year-old catch her first striped bass. Chris and Capt Wayne were awesome and it could not have been a better morning. Boat and equipment are first class and we were on fish five minutes after the lines hit the water. An excellent charter for fisherwomen of all experience levels. I have fished with a lot of captains and Capt Wayne is among the very best. I can't wait to fish with them again.

Caught a whole cooler full of Blue Head sea bass

We had a great afternoon on the water with Captain Wayne and Chris today! Caught a whole cooler full of Blue Head sea bass. Brought them home from the boat and cooked them for dinner! Amazing! I highly recommend this company if you are looking to have a fun day on the water, on a clean boat while catching a lot of great fish!!

Awesome Fishing

We had the best time ever on a charter fishing boat with Islander Sport Fishing. I cannot say enough about Captain Jim and Shawn. They were awesome! It truly was the perfect day.

I could go on for days about how good this trip was

I just went last weekend and I had a thrill going with my brother and father. The boats that we went on were completely clean and well made and get you where you need to be in a quick manner. The Captain and mate are some of the nicest guys I've meet in my life time of going deep-sea fishing and just in life. They teach you and they want you to learn! There is not -ONE- negative thing I can come up with these guys. The fishing was amazing and these guys are really knowledgeable and you will catch fish. I could go on for days about how good this trip was, but you just have to go on for yourself and see because I'm not lying. These guys are the real deal with being very professional. Five stars easily. I wish I could give you more!

20 Blues in 2 Hours

This guy (Capt Wayne) said he'd put us on fish, and he didn't disappoint. 20 blues in the 1st 2 hrs of fishing. Also landed a nice 40-45lb stripers later in the day. Awesome time. 1st Mate Chris was the best as well. Will definitely be using this boat again in the future!!

40th with a group of great friends

Just went out today for my 40th with a group of great friends. Captain Wayne is on point, commanding "in a good way", for your own benefit to catch fish. To say he knows his stuff is an understatement. Very friendly, clean boat, all the amenities. He really builds a camaraderie.

Now his first mate, Chris, is probably the nicest guy you'll ever meet. He works well with the newbies, let's the seasoned salty dogs do their thing, with guidance. I can not recommend these men, and that vessel enough. Book with these guys. You won't be upset with your choice.

Thanks for making our "mini-moon" unforgettable

I don't think there are enough good things I could say about Islander sport fishing charters. My (new) husband and I had about 3 months to plan a wedding, so understandably, money was very tight! At first, he wanted nothing to do with any kind of honeymoon, and I would not have it! We needed to do something, and since fishing was a staple in our relationship, I was determined to plan a trip. Luckily after searching around on the Internet, I found these gentlemen at Islander Sport Fishing in Old Saybrook, and gave them a call, there was nothing they would stop at to help make a trip happen!!!!

We just went out today and they were more than accommodating, especially to me (who also happens to be 6 months pregnant!) and helped us in anyway they could. Within 15 minutes of being out, we had each caught a fish, and within a half-hour we had already hit our limit for sea bass!!! And these were not small fish either... Capt Wayne knows where to go and what to do - for sure. We caught 13 bluefish, in addition to our stripers!!! And this was only a half-day trip!!!

All in all, we had an amazing experience and I cannot thank captain Wayne and Chris enough for giving us an experience of a lifetime, and so much fish!!! Thank you so much for making our "mini-moon" unforgettable, and I know we both cannot wait to plan another trip with you!!!!!
