Connemara Bay Charters offers lobsterbake cruises, saltwater fishing, lobstering, and scenic charters in and around the waters off Cape Ann, Massachusetts (including Gloucester, Rockport, Manchester and Ipswich). The Connemara Bay is a 37-foot traditional, “Down East”-style Maine-built boat with plenty of deck space to accommodate up to six passengers. All charters are captained by Kevin O’Maley, a native of Gloucester with a lifetime of experience fishing, lobstering and boating in North Shore waters.

If you want to catch fish, this is the boat for you. It's not luxurious but it it's fully equipped for fishing. The captain and mate are skilled, knowledgeable fishermen. They make every effort to give you the best fishing experience. They know the waters,...More
