We went out with Captain Marty, his dog Almond, and a new captain in training, Zoe. We only caught a few fish while bottom fishing, but enjoyed ourselves and being on the water. Marty did all he could to put us in the right spots, but the fish didn't cooperate. I think the best review I can give is that this was our second trip with North Shore Charters and we will book with Marty again the next time we are in the San Juan Islands.

Captain Marty was awesome! We chartered the boat for the day to whale watch and had a great time. Marty was so nice and accommodating and really made the trip special. The boat was comfortable and Marty was full of knowledge about the area which he was happy to share with us. So grateful we went with North Shore Charters and I would recommend to anyone looking for a fun and unforgettable experience!

North Shore Charters is a first class outfit; start to finish. Booking was easy. They were very accommodating. Our original booking had to be scrubbed and rescheduled as it was blowing 20+knots on the day we were supposed to go. Everything else was clock work. Boat was great. Gear was great. Sean and the fishing were both exceptionally great.
Some days the fish are biting and some days they aren't. But if the fish are around, these guys know how to find them
I recommend these guys 100%.

We had a great day on the water. We started off by dropping some crab pots which
on return were full of huge dungenous. Sean cleaned them for us and we cooked them
for dinner and they were delicious. Then we went and trolled for salmon and my son hooked and landed his first Chinook and was delighted. Captain Sean did a great job getting my son involved in the crabbing and catching the fish and really helped him have a great day on the ocean. We then went to Sucia St Park and explored it too.

North Shore Charters is the perfect charter if you would like to take your family out for a fun day on the water. The boat is big and comfortable and has a bathroom which is great for the wife and kids. We really like how they customized the trip for us letting us go crabbing, fishing, and hike an island all on the same trip. My son keeps talking about it so I know it was a good experience for the family.
