A great trip for Kids, Vacationers and First Timers! This charter is mostly catch and release. We fish very close to shore and it is not a very long ride to the fishing grounds.

THE PETREL EXPERIENCE
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!
