If you are looking for a top notch Connecticut deep sea fishing charter you have succeeded! ( Welcome aboard). Capt. Greg Bernier owns and operates the PETREL with over 40 years experience fishing these local waters.

The benefit of choosing us? We customize every charter to maximize YOUR experience on the water. Teaching people how to fish is our business! The Captain will put you on the fish. As a result our mates take over and will help you land, then chill, fillet and de-bone your catch for the freshest table fare possible. Or if you prefer catch and release, we can do that too. It is your charter!


The PETREL is a 36′ Harris hull with a comfortable and clean open concept for your enjoyment. Powered by the very reliable CAT 3208. Most importantly, it is fully compliant with all required USCG safety equipment. The boat features multiple GPS, radio, and radar units. The PETREL comes fully equipped with custom rods, reels, hand tied rigs, and only the freshest bait available. We can accommodate up to 6 passengers maximum or take less.

We fish for inshore species in season including Porgies, Fluke, Black Sea Bass, Bluefish, Striped Bass, Flounder and Blackfish.
