My family and I had an awesome day on the Bay with Captain Alan over Labor Day weekend. I told him that we were first-timers but that my daughter has been asking to go deepwater fishing for years, so he made a plan to take us to the mid-bay channels where the sharks and rays were running. We caught seven and my daughter can't wait for the next trip.

My Dad and I spent an awesome day out on the water with Captain Allan. He was incredibly nice, helpful and fun. Provided advice to us and knew all the right spots on the river for us. We literally caught over 100 fish within 4hrs to include 4 shark pups. Absolutely recommend giving him a call to anyone who would like a professional, fun and memorable experience with no worries and lots of fish catchin!

We took the 2 hour tour with our granddaughter and her friend. Captain Al was informative and related well to adults and kids as well.The kids loved the trip and spent the rest of the day talking about the things they learned. Would highly recommend this trip to any and all.

You will not ask for a better Captain he will put you on the fish. I would rate him 10 star

I have been on 2 trips with Captain Alan and both were amazing. On the first trip, Alan took my entire family (wife and 3 young kids) out on the York River. We were "fish on" quickly and the entire family had a great time. On another trip Alan took my Dad and I out for striped bass in December. We only caught one fish this trip, but it was a 40lb monster so it was well worth it! On both trips I felt very safe with Alan at the helm as our guide. If you are in the area and want to go fishing, I highly recommend York River Charters.
