This charter company, Atlantis Princess, is located in Staten Island, New York. Just hop the ferry and ride over to the Island in time to catch the full-day or half-day charter. Morning charters leave at 8:00 AM, while afternoon charters on the half-day schedule leave at 1:00 PM. If you fish all day, you return to dock at 3:00 PM; if you fish for a half-day, you fish from 8:00 AM to 12:00 noon in the morning or 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM in the afternoon.
If you have kids, Mondays are free fishing day for children. If you want to go night fishing, catch the Friday night charter that lasts from 7:00 PM until midnight.
The charter boats go to such good fishing areas as along the Hudson River, the Ambrose Channel, Raritan Bay, and Sandy Hook. If luck is with you, you should have no problem catching something.
Want a unique way to relax after a hard day's work? Rocket Charter offers "after-work" fishing charters (OK, in your case, it would be "after sightseeing".) Simply throw a pair of blue jeans, a comfortable shirt, and some tennis shoes in your bag that morning, because you can change on the boat itself in the locker room or cabin. or go back to your hotel and change. Then, come aboard, grab your pole (that is already on the boat) and enjoy fishing while you're still in sight of parts of the New York City skyline.
You can take the bus or subway to New York Skyports Marina, which is located at East 23rd St. and F.D.R. Drive, or you can drive out. Either way, once you get there, you'll be ready to relax and unwind.
Did we mention a meal is also provided? So, don't worry about having to pack a picnic or dinner basket. Rocket Charter will feed you.
