With over 25 years of
Maine fishing charter experience, Captain Dave Paul has guided fishermen of all passions along the Maine Coast. Captain Dave has led ocean fishing charters in Maine from Saco to Harpswell and out as far as Jeffries Ledge and Platts ledge. Captain Dave also spent many years fishing along Plum Island sound and the New Hampshire coast as well.
Captain Dave is a licensed Maine Saltwater Guide and is fully insured to carry up to six passengers with his captain’s license. Captain Dave is a full time charter boat captain and is available seven days a week during the fishing season.

While we can’t control the weather, we do track it with the latest information available from NOAA and watch the tides.
