Expert Gloucester Fishing Guide & Captain

Expert Gloucester Fishing Guide & Captain

At Tuna Tail Charters, our team has been fishing the waters around Gloucester, MA for over 45 years, both recreationally and commercially. Our captain holds a prestigious U.S.C.G. Masters License for more than four decades.

We are passionate about providing exciting fishing adventures tailored to your preferences. Giant bluefin tuna is our specialty - our captain caught his first bluefin tuna out of a 16-foot boat using just rope and nail kegs for a handline, an epic 3-hour battle!

Whether you want to target cod and haddock on a deep sea fishing trip, cast for striped bass along the rocky coastline, throw plugs into a bluefish blitz, or go stand-up fishing for massive sharks and tuna, we can accommodate it all. From seasoned anglers to total novices and families, your safety and success are our top priorities.

Let our knowledgeable crew share their fishing expertise and help you reel in that trophy catch. We love introducing guests to the incredible angling opportunities in our local waters.
