Sportfishing is one of the main attractions on Long Island. There are charter boats available from Port Washington to Port Jefferson on the North Shore and Captree to East Hampton on the south shore, all told there are about 150 miles of pristine shoreline with great fishing right here.
Whether you fish for your dinner or fish for a trophy, a day on the water can provide a lifetime of memories.
From the beginning of May to around Thanksgiving, you can enjoy not only breathtaking water views, but the exciting challenge of sport fishing.
If you don’t have your own rod and reel, no worries, everything you’ll need is provided by the Captain.
So grab your friends and family, pack some sunscreen and head out for a great BMW Road Trip.
