Advantages of NYC Party Boat Fishing
You have several options when you want to head out fishing around New York. Whether you are planning a solo trip or a day out with friends, joining a fishing party boat trip is the ultimate way to experience fishing in NYC. You can schedule your own private party boat fishing charter with our team, or join dozens of anglers of all skill levels ready for an exciting day out on the water. Party boat fishing is:
- Good for Most Skill Levels – If you are new to fishing, party boat fishing can get you to the right spots and give you time to finetune your deep sea fishing skills. Since we have equipment available, it also makes it easy to try out fishing even if you do not have equipment. For more experienced fishermen, you can get to spots you would not typically be able to access.
- Visit New Locations – Locations for deep sea fishing from shore in New York are limited and often overfished. Boat fishing takes you out to where large fish are active and plentiful to increase your chances of bringing home a great catch.
- Affordable Way to Fish – Rather than rent your own boat or try to manage the experience yourself, our party boat fishing lets you catch a variety of fish and spend an enjoyable day on the water for a fraction of the price.
Besides fishing in places you would not normally have access to, you will also be treated to great views of the many landmarks, bridges, piers, and lighthouses off the coasts of New York and New Jersey. This makes for some sightseeing as we head towards our destination, and a chance to relax on the way home.
What We Fish for on the Marilyn Jean
The waterways around NYC contain a diverse variety of fish and different seasons offer their own experiences. Choose a relaxing morning fishing for porgies or reel in an impressive trophy fish. Some of the fishing trips we offer will give you a chance to catch:
- Striped Bass
- Seabass, and More
Trip timing depends on spawning seasons and the year to year activity of individual species. Because many fish species are active at similar times in the same location, many of our trips will include a chance to fish for several types for a more varied catch.
Our Party Boat Fishing Schedule
We make our ships available for private charters at almost all times of day, and we encourage you to give us a call if you want a private party boat fishing charter for your friends out on the open water. We also have great ongoing daily boating schedules for those that want to join us with a group.
Party boat fishing in NYC includes high quality bait and buckets for the fish you catch. We also have rods and reels available for rent for only $5, and tackle available for purchase on board.

We use our knowledge of tides, seasons, fishing behaviors, weather, and bird patterns to guide you to the optimal fishing spots, and our diesel engine boats make it easy and fast to move to each new spot. Some of the locations around NYC we are able to visit include Jamaica Bay, Rockaway Beach, Coney Island, Sandy Hook, and other spots along the coast of New Jersey.
