Just wanted to say thanks again for a fantastic day of fishing! We appreciate your expertise putting us on the fish and hard work quickly responding to the non-stop ‘fish on’ screams of so many pumped anglers. Only regret was not getting a picture of Kissinger’s face as he raced to the bow fighting his first big striper just as the humpback breached. Good times.

Great job!

We’ll be back.

I’ve been on the Miss Belmar 9 times so far this year, and plan on going out again real soon. We caught literally a boat load of fish yesterday. MONSTER BLUES!!! Eric and Frank are the best mates any captain could possibly ask for. Captain Len did a GREAT JOB in finding the fish. Miss Belmar princess is truly the best boat I’ve ever been on. Thanks guys for the best time I’ve had.

Today, I was a proud American while I fished on the Miss Belmar. The Captain and crew took time out to listen to my request for a moment of silence and a short prayer to remember this day’s events 19 years ago. With no issues the captain said thank you to me and made it happen. We said a prayer at 8:42 a.m. and at 9:02 a.m. in silence and a few honks on the air horn. A simple gesture that was important to all on board. Captain, I thank you and your awesome crew for that and hope you do that as years go by. Please never forget those brave souls that gave so much for us.
I will end this night again with a simple Thank you. God Bless America.

I must say this had to be one of the best trips I have ever taken and I’ve been out a lot. All staff members were amazing my niece’s had the time of their life. They were there helping them at each step. I cannot really explain how that made me feel. I’m looking forward to joining your crew again

I had a GREAT time on the boat. Caught many fish. Had a lot of fun. I’ll definitely be back sooner than I thought.  Thank you for everything!

It was an amazing whale watching trip yesterday! I thank Bill McKim, host & photographer, Captain Alan Shinn & first Mate Richie West for making accommodations to bring a very frail brother on the Royal Miss Belmar for a great adventure! Had a great bunch of guests, friendly, courteous and fun people! Couldn’t have asked for a better way to spend Independence Day! Many future trips available, great way to spend a COVID afternoon! You won’t be disappointed!

I have been on The Princess about a dozen times and its always a good time. The Mates are great and very helpful. They know a ton and never make you feel like an idiot if you don’t know something. If you are a beginner or advanced angler, this boat is for you.

This chartered boat we had today was just what we all needed. We are all front line workers (EMTs, Paramedics, Nurses, Police Officers) and this trip couldn’t have come at a better time. Just to throw your line out, wait to get a bite (or two…. or three, etc.) was just so nice to forget what is going on in this world right now and the last couple months. Thank you to wonderful staff and captain. Top Notch Charter!!! Thank you for all you did for us!

I wanted the owners to know how wonderful my experience was on the fishing trip last night from 430 to 830. I have been on many fishing trips but this time was the absolute best. The crew were all the nicest people. We had my elderly 85 year old father in law with limited mobility. They all went above and beyond to make sure he was safe and comfortable. He just lost his wife of 55+ years in November. He wanted to fish so bad but we were so unsure if it could be possible. We also know this might be his last summer with us.

Your crew made it possible for him to enjoy the day and he caught a couple fish which was amazing.

He is a lifelong fisherman and outdoorsman and this day meant so much to him.

Please let them know how much I appreciate their kindness and help.

Christina Myers

Went out yesterday for sea bass and it was the best day of fishing I’ve ever had. For a solid two hours we were pulling up fish every time we dropped down. The crew was great and very helpful. Everything was very clean as well. I highly recommend these guys. I will be out again with them very soon!

Brian Wichowski

Highy recommend!!! My sister & I started fishing with this group a year ago after branching out from our other south Jersey trips. We will not be going back to the others – we are “hooked” on Miss Belmar and her crew! Awesome customer service beyond compare! Thank you guys for a great experience!!

Dear Karin,

I live in Texas and visit my original home state NJ a few times a year. Every time I visit home I go for a fishing trip. Thank you so much for making my fishing trip awesome before it started. Your courtesy and great customer service assured me that I made the right decision. Miss Belmar will be my go to place for any future trips.

Thank you!

Thanks for making it perfect 2 years in a row for our big rowdy group!

Lindsey Whittaker

August 15th, 2019

Crew was amazing! We caught a ton of fish and we had a lot of fun even though there was a lot of wind and huge waves. Yeaaahhh, I found out I have no sea legs. The crew even cuts up your catches for you to bring home! The veteran discount was a nice deal as well. Not crowded and plenty of space! Will do this again next summer for sure!

Melissa DuQuette 

August 13th, 2019

Hello Karin! This is Magda Botros (party of 14 reservation went on this last Saturday morning trip). The trip was awesome! Every single one of us had a great time and the boat crew (and you) were very helpful! We decided that we will make this experience a family tradition in the future and bring more family members with us too. For all of that, I want to thank you so much!

Magda Botros

August 5th, 2019

It was our first time on a whale watching trip and we had the best time. Everyone on the boat was so nice and it turned out it was the best day of the season for seeing whales. We are definitely going to go again but with no one else but the Royal Miss Belmar. Scratch one off our bucket list.

John Blystone

August 5th, 2019

We haven’t gone on our fishing trip yet BUT i want to say, the woman i talked to Karin, on the phone with my reservation and for questions was BEYOND helpful! It was so nice getting help so easily and not feeling like I’m being a bother! Thank you! Cant wait to come on board soon!

Michelyn Gulvas

We crushed them today – just an incredible day, crew and captain. i will do this again real soon.

Anthony Nuzzolo

August 4th, 2019

My son and I fished on your boat. The 1/2 day fluke and sea bass. We had such a great day today! We were able to come home with at least 2 dinners of filets. The captain and crew, Richie, and I think his name was Eric, middle aged guys with a beard, were awesome. So helpful and honestly good people. We are a bit new to deep sea fishing and man these guys had us catching fish ALL DAY!!!! I can’t say enough positive remarks about our day fishing with you

Before I forget I want to also thank the young lady who took our reservation yesterday, Karin. I would highly recommend this boat. I will definitely be back to fish another day.

James Gardner

I just wanted to thank you for an awesome trip! It was a gorgeous day, and the captain and mates were very attentive. We even got pictures of the kids driving the boat! I brought along a couple of friends and they also had a great time. Hope to come back soon. Have a great weekend, and thank you again for the courtesy on the coupons!

Thank you, we had a great time. Everyone caught a bunch of fish by 10:00 a.m. We decided to all get together every year and go out on Miss Belmar Princess. The Crew was outstanding. Thank the Captain and the crew for an outstanding job. Thank you again.

Michael Cataldo

Yesterday my buddy Jim Flynn (pool winner) and I took the morning trip. First time on your boat. Couldn’t have been better. Boat was clean and fast, fast, fast … crew was Johnny on the Spot with great attitude.  I do not go fishing often, maybe 5 or 6 times a year. But I know where I’ll be fishing next time I go. Great job! 

Dave Feigenbaum

It was so much fun can’t wait to go again. Everyone is so, so sweet. It was my first time and well worth it!

Mickey Conner 

July 15th, 2019

This is my first time fishing with Royal Miss Belmar. This morning had a lot of action. I caught over 30 fish within 3 1/2 hours, although not the keeper size, but I had a lot of fun fishing with this boat. I would love to come back again. Thank Royal Miss Belmar. You gave me a good day today.

Ching Wah Wong

Sean Doris

Had a great time today on this boat with my girls and nieces! The crew and Captain made this a great experience for all of us! We all caught fish! Would recommend Royal Miss Belmar to family and friends!

Filomena Rocha

July 2nd, 2019

The Miss Belmar is the cleanest boat and best crew out there! I’m very excited to bring my boyfriend for the 1st time fluke fishing! He’s a veteran and has served for us. I’m trusting your crew can give him a great experience!! Thank you!

Kelly DiNardo

July 2nd, 2019

Such a fun and friendly crew! My family had an awesome time on the sunset fishing cruise even though the fishing wasn’t great, still two of us out of three fishing caught a fish and my other two daughters enjoyed the lounge chairs on the top deck. Seriously though, the crew treats you like family.

Kristin Savage Long

Give someone a fish, they eat for a day. Teach someone to fish, they will never go hungry.

Love the Crew, boat is clean, fishing is great and you just cannot beat the view.

Going Deep Sea Fishing? Look no further! Rich and the crew are awesome. It’s no wonder dad always took me fishing on the SS Miss Belmar! It’s Been 40 years and we came in from Wisconsin and there was no other choice…the SS Princess Belmar. THE BEST CREWS ANYWHERE. Thanks everyone for great fishing and a great time!!! We will be back next summer!

Pete Raskovic 

June 22nd, 2019

Great trip, great crew, awesome weather and 3 fish for me and my beautiful girlfriend’s 1st fish on the Belmar after 6 or so trips.

All the people on board are very friendly and very good service. There is a man who is changing the hooks who is very friendly and hardworking.

Marco Antonio

June 14th, 2019

My son and I got our first sea legs with Royal Miss Belmar. With Westerly winds 18-20 (and gusts higher), our sea legs weren’t the best. However, I must say the crew were amazing asking several times if we were ok, providing suggestions and words of wisdom. If you want a clean vessel and a knowledgeable, hard working, and caring Captain and crew, Royal Miss B should be your first and only choice.

Andy Mccolgan

June 9th, 2019

We had a great time. Frankie and all the other guys were great with helping first timers like myself and my sister. I caught 3 Blue Fish and they were nice enough to filet them for us. We are definitely coming back!

Syreeta Moody 

June 2nd, 2019

I just wanted to say thank you for great experience today. I also wanted to say Joe was a great guy who helped us so much. Here is our biggest catch of the day for me and my wife. We will definitely be back soon. Thank you.

Had a great time. First time fishing with you and the crew was knowledgeable and helpful. Love the full galley and menu and I can’t believe the speed of this boat!! Definitely worth the ride down. I usually fish out of Atlantic Highlands. I’ll be back!!!!

May 24th, 2019

We had a wonderful trip aboard the Miss Belmar Princess. All of the staff were wonderful. Starting with Karin in the office helping me set it all up. Onboard Stephanie, Richie, Billy, Kevin, and Ken were professional and helpful. They fed us and kept us fishing all day. We set out for Blues and Stripers and when we couldn’t find them they switched over our tackle for seabass. The captain found some fish and pretty much kept us on them all day. Everyone in the group caught at least one fish. I would recommend this trip to all. Thanks again for a wonderful trip. We will be back to do it again.

Joe Couch

My son and I went on the Morning/Afternoon trip today and I can’t begin to say enough amazing things about this charter boat. The deck hands were amazing, informative and so helpful! I would recommend this crew to anyone.

Gina Corotto

May 16th, 2019

Awesome day of fishing!!! Spectacular weather and conditions!! Very clean boat. The Captain and crew were super, very friendly, great attitudes, helpful and knowledgeable mates. They did a wonderful job finding good spots and kept putting us on fish. Me and my buds caught a fair share of blues and sea bass. Can’t wait to go again. Highly recommended.

Tom Sodana, Jr.

Great team and very helpful. I can’t wait to go back fishing with them.

Gildas Sewa

May 12th, 2019

The captain and the entire crew are very nice people and they will take good care of you and your family. They also cook on the boat The food is good. They have an upstairs where you can lay down relax or get a nice tan. They made me feel right at home. When I told them I didn’t know how to swim they made me feel so safe. They helped me with my fishing poles. I definitely recommend Miss Belmar.

Mondel Eliscar

I took a trip to spread my dad’s ashes out at sea. The captain did a great job accommodating a very emotional and personal time. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience.

Christopher Dorosz

Always a fun time (but today was special!). I just love these guys. The mates are awesome, staff is cool and friendly and the captain knows what he’s doing!! It’s just such a great time every time I’m on the Miss Belmar Princess!!!😍😍😍🤩🤩🤩

Special shout out to Joe, Frank, and Stephanie. You guys were all awesome!

Nicole Rufo

April 18th, 2019

Always have a great time aboard the miss belmar princess. Captain busts his tail to get you on the fish. We’ve gone out for blues, striper, and on rare occasion other fish, and every time we have fun.

Walt Thomas

I have a balance and walking disability and the crew made it possible for me to enjoy the day! Thank you all.

Tony P.

October 28th, 2018

My only goals for that day were to make the boat before it took off, catch more fish than I did my first time on this boat, and to have fun. Well, I achieved all three!!!! I can’t wait until the next time!

Chastidy G.

October 27th, 2018

The captain put you on the fish, the mates are quite helpful and fun. Very clean, well run boat.

Kate M. Johnson

October 23rd, 2018

My birthday gift. Thanks for letting us have a good day. Great trip and the captain tries to keep us on the fish. Mates and the captain interact with the visitors. Very attentive to your needs. Boat is very clean. Must go again. Can’t wait to go tuna fishing, me and my son. He loved it and he was so happy to land a big one. Hell, it made my day!


October 20th, 2018

Having fished on private charters, as well as party boats similar to the Miss Belmar Princess, I found the entire crew to be pleasant and helpful. It’s not always the number of fish in the box that counts but the people and crew you are with. The boat was clean and comfortable and the captain did put us on fish and we enjoyed them the next night. I am not the person that writes reviews as my wife Kim will attest. I am more of the vocal type. We will fish on this boat again…. good luck fishing.

October 14th, 2018

My family and I went out on the Miss Belmar Princess for the very first time today. In the past, we have been on several 4 hour fishing boat trips departing out of Wildwood. Today’s 7 hour trip has proven to be the GREATEST! The captain and crew were amazing and extremely helpful. Crewman Phil taught me more than I ever could have imagined learning about the basics of fishing and casting. I wish to thank him for encouraging and teaching me! We look forward to going out with Miss Belmar Princess again! P.S. the blue fish and porgies were delicious! Thank You!

October 8th, 2018

The Miss Belmar Princess is a great choice for your fishing excursion. The captain finds the fish and the cheerful mates are extremely helpful with everything from setting up your tackle, helping you land your fish, and dealing with tangles to cleaning your catch for you on the way back to dockside.

Billndeliver, Nutley, NJ

October 4th, 2018

Awesome captain and staff! Always catch fish. Staff is extremely professional and helpful, and Captain Lenny is always making sure his customers are catching fish!!! Great job!

We went fishing for blues last week…. What a great trip!!!!! And the mates, Frank and Rich, were the best!!!!! OMG what a ball!!!!!

Donna Marie Godfrey‎

September 6th, 2018

Very helpful crew. They took care to make sure we were having a nice time even though we were a little older for the blue fishing and novices at it. So they switched us over to bottom fishing with different equipment and even though we caught fish we could not keep due to the season we still had a very nice time.

Marie McGrogan

September 6th, 2018

There are many fishing boats to choose in the Belmar, Point Pleasant and Brielle area. Most have good captains and crews or they would not be in business. Over the last 40 years I have fished on most of them. But when I want to go fishing now, my car always drives to the Miss Belmar Princess as I appreciate its consistency. There are going to be good and bad fishing days on every boat but I have never had any negative surprises on the Miss Belmar Princess.

Howard R.

September 5th, 2018

We took the 4:30-8:30 fishing trip and had a blast. The crew was super helpful and always available when we needed anything and there were comfortable lounge chairs on the upper deck when we just wanted to relax and enjoy the views. We saw a whale, dolphins, skates, and caught some fish – great time!! We’ll definitely do it again!


September 5th, 2018

We made the most of our jetlag and had an incredible morning on the Miss Belmar. Caught 3 blue fish, 2 sea bass (someone else caught the tuna) and then got to see a whale, dolphins and a 6’ shark someone had on their line. Sienna’s excitement was priceless!

Juliet O’Halloran

September 5th, 2018

IMPRESSED. Staff was SUPER friendly and helpful (didn’t get upset but calmly reiterated and showed instructions after people kept bird nesting lines) VERY attentive. Plentiful staff who roamed the boat to help and asked if anyone needed anything. Nice CLEAN boat. NO drunk and disorderlies. Nice peaceful trip. GREAT for families. YUMMY homemade ice cream sandwiches.


September 5th, 2018

My son & I had a great time. Caught plenty of fish, mates were great & helpful. Was an awesome way to finish out the summer.


September 4th, 2018

We got a Groupon for this boat and my husband took our 15 year old for a fishing trip. The boat was very clean, fishing was good and they brought fish home, which sometimes doesn’t happen. The price was good and included rods and a small lunch. You have to get to the boat early. People are there an hour ahead choosing the best fishing spots on the boat. The only minus was that the boat was too full, people were close to each other and the lines got tangled. They did go fishing on Sunday though and I am sure it is not as crowded on a week day. Great experience if you are trying to fishing.


September 1st, 2018

This was our second year celebrating Veteran’s Appreciation Day. We had 75 veterans, active military and their families on the boat. The mates and captain were better than great. Everyone on the boat had nothing but smiles on their faces. A lot of fish were caught and everyone is looking forward to the next trip out with the Miss Belmar Princess!

Gary Fish

August 30th, 2018

Good time and plenty of action. Be sure to bring a cooler with ice on hot days. Crew was super helpful if lines got tangled or if needed help taking a fish off the hook.


August 30th, 2018

This is a one of a kind outing. We met several “regulars”, Mike, Jack and Calvin who were exceptional fishermen. They were eager to share their knowledge, tackle and even a pudding for my grandson! It was a beautiful day on the ocean!

August 29th, 2018

I enjoyed spending time on the water fishing with my 15 year old son. Staff was friendly and helpful. Definitely worth the money!


August 23rd, 2018

My son caught 7 fish and I caught 1. Crew was very friendly and always there to get the fish off the hook. Boat was clean and we had a blast. He is saving his money to go back next year!

Amanda Lynn

August 22nd, 2018

The crew of the Miss Belmar was extremely helpful for myself and the rest of my family. Even though none of us really knew what we were doing and often ended up getting tangled with other lines, the crew was always happy to help us out (and seemed to see the problem before we even did). It was a fun evening of fishing. Even though it was shortened by an unexpected illness of a passenger they provided each person with a partial credit towards a future trip.

Jonathan R.

Took my son out yesterday and it was a lot of fun and the staff was awesome!

Chuck Baldwin

August 14th, 2018

Was my first fishing trip, great experience, nice crew and the boat condition is great. I had a great fishing day and I will look forward to go a least once every month. Thanks for providing a wonderful day that got me into fishing.


August 14th, 2018

Excellent trip!!! Brought my buddy along for a wonderful birthday trip for sea bass. Mates are top notch!


August 14th, 2018

We arrived on the Miss Belmar as part of a large group. We had a terrific time fishing. Boat is really nice and spacious. Large top deck with seating and fishing on the bottom deck. Lots of crew, really patient and knowledgeable. Saw a whale. I’m pretty sure everyone caught a fish (not all of them were keepers). Definitely planning a return trip. Great boat to go out if you are a novice. Fun family trip for all ages.

Miss Belmar Princess always great times and a great fishing experience fishing with them.

Eric Baranowski

August 11th, 2018

My crew of 8 had a great time and can’t wait to come back. The crew was great with everyone. Even my 5 year old who made a bet with the ice cream man. Lol. Perfect weather and great fishing. Thank you.


August 11th, 2018

Had a wonderful time on the Miss Belmar Princess. The staff was so helpful and nice. Frankie, the mate, was always there when we needed him. Would recommend highly.

Lisa D.

August 11th, 2018

My dad and I came for my annual birthday fishing trip. This was our 3rd year in a row and we will be back next year:). Might not have caught a million fish but had a great time. Mates were great. Both really nice guys.

Michele G.

August 10th, 2018

It was a fantastic trip from start to finish! It does help that Mother Nature was on our side. I have done a few fishing trips on Miss Belmar and I have never been disappointed. The crew is knowledgeable and so attentive no matter how many people are on board. Thanks for a great time!


August 9th, 2018

Fish did not bite much, but the crew was awesome, friendly and right there when you needed them. Boat was nice and clean, ladies room was clean and smelled good.



Everyone on the crew is so friendly and helpful. The trip was a pleasant experience. Definitely will do it again.



This was a last minute trip that went flawlessly. The boat was easy to find and very clean. The crew was very responsive with plenty of them to help everybody. We will be back.

August 9th, 2018

It was a great day to be out on the water. Nice crew. Actually was educational and fun. Thanks for the information and pleasant disposition!

Joe Solomon

July 20th, 2018

I went fishing on this ship twice this summer. Both times, I caught lots of fish. They weren’t all keepers, but I’m not competition fishing. The staff was helpful, friendly and knowledgeable on both excursions. They come around and check your progress and are always willing to assist when needed. Looking for a night out? Best $50 per person you can possibly spend. Highly recommended.

This is the second year we have gone out. We had a great time and the staff is awesome!! I would recommend this outing to family and friends.



Wasn’t catching anything in the Delaware bay so I took the 2 hour trip up north. We caught a lot of fish and my 11 year old was not bored the entire time.



My sister and I went on the 4 hour evening trip and had a blast! We caught bass, fluke, and ling. They were all delicious!



We had a great time as always. We got to catch fish all day. It was a very good day. The weather was great and the fish were biting. The crew was always there if you needed any help with anything. We have never been unhappy on any of our fishing trips on the Miss Belmar Princess. We will be returning again.

Thanks to Alan and the crew for making this trip a memorable birthday for my dad and his grandsons!

The fish weren’t really biting when we came last month but the crew made every attempt possible to make sure everyone was happy! This is my second outing with them and I will not go on any other boat down the shore except for this one!!!!! Love them!!!

Had a great day out with the Miss Belmar yesterday. Caught some Sea Bass and almost a Fluke keeper. These guys showed us a great time, were always ready to lend a hand and put us in some great spots to catch fish. A shame there are limits all over the place on what you can keep but the crew is by the book and lets you measure each fish and account for the pair you are allowed at the moment. Was a great fun day, well worth the money and will be doing it again very soon. Thanks again MBP!

I took my son for a second time on this boat — he’s now an up and coming fisherman and the crew didn’t scoff at him. When he was getting tired, the crew took his rod, hooked a sea bass, and then let him reel it in. They did that a few times for him. Will be booking again soon.

Tom Santo

June 19th, 2018

Thanks for the best Father’s Day weekend of fishing. Captains Doug and Lenny put us on the fish all day. Went the extra mile (knot?) to put us on jumbo blues yesterday. Kudos to the best party boat crew and mates in the business.

Howard Glatter 

June 18th, 2018

What a wonderful time we had on Saturday. The crew was beyond awesome. The crew was very personable and very helpful. They were very good to my 7 y/o niece. She’ll say her fave time on the boat was getting the hot dog and being able to pick out skittles. I would def go again!

Christina Rook Boyle

My name is Gloria Carter. 20 of us came today to fish. Thank you for such an awesome time. Awesome captain and staff. It was AMAZING. Cannot wait to come back. HAD A BLAST!!!!

Gloria Carter 

June 17th, 2018

We had a great time!!! The pier very easy to find and plenty of FREE PARKING!!! The boat was stocked with rods and bait and the mates were VERY attentive and kid friendly. Thanks “Harry Houdini” we did the 4:30 p.m. sailing and although not to many keepers we all had a fish on the hook by the end of the trip. One tip – bring a jacket or long sleeves. I was FREEZING once we hit the open water. Just to mention I was pretty pleased with the selection of food and pricing in the galley. The boat was pretty full, but we were still comfy and I had a party of 22. The kids, teens and adults all had a good time!! Thank you to Karin in the office, your help and attention to detail will definitely get us to book with you again!!!

Had a great time. I put the trip together for 20 of me and some friends and we had a blast. The staff/crew were excellent. Definitely going again. In fact, I’m going to make it an annual Father’s Day trip with my group. I recommend Miss Belmar to everybody.

June 14th, 2018

One of the best times I ever had on a charter boat. The mates were very helpful and experienced. Actually, one of the mates came to the front of my truck to grab my cooler and my poles and put it on the boat for me. I thought that was awesome. I will definitely be back there again.

Tom Hernandez

June 14th, 2018

My son, 12, loves to fish. We bought passes for his birthday. When we got there had no clue what we were doing or in for. The crew was amazing. Showed us how to use rod and reel and fixed it with a smile each time I messed it up. They were great with my son. We caught a bunch of fish which they filleted for us. Would absolutely recommend this experience to anyone that has been thinking about it.

Wow, what a day. After trying a couple of places to catch fish and not much luck, we took a trip north where we ended up seeing some real nice Blues. The staff and crew really did their best to make this a wonderful fishing trip for all. I will definitely go again. I highly recommend the Miss Belmar Princess!

June 9th, 2018

I had a nice time yesterday and everybody was really polite—it was also my son’s first fishing trip and he caught 7 sea bass–I caught 12 plus 1 bluefish — we WILL be booking a couple of trips in the upcoming months. Thank you!  

Tom Santo

Highly recommend making your summer rock by going on the Miss Belmar Princess, getting some sun and fighting some fish

Awesome, awesome day!

This is the BEST Party Boat in NJ! They alway’s go the EXTRA MILE! If there are fish to be caught out there , that day , then this is the boat that will find them!

I have a great time every time I go. The crew are great people and always on top of everything. Good times on this boat.

Thomas Battista

Although I managed to get tangled up 5 times while dropping my line, I love the trip pretty much to the point that now I’m looking at my vacation time so that I may book again. The captain & his crew seemed to get involved in a positive way. Nothing negative to have me give anything less than a 5 star.

Gregory Wilkins

May 30, 2018

Great day fishing! Caught a lot of fish today and don’t think anyone went home empty handed. Brought home 4 blue fish and lost several. Also brought home a nice black sea bass, 1 keeper out of 25. Definitely a lot catching going on and the fishing is picking up! Can’t wait to book another trip!

Our first striper trip. It started slow but the captain worked hard to get us on the fish. Ended up being a great day. Deck hands were awesome. Very helpful and always a good time on that boat. See you next year.

Christopher Perkins

December 9th, 2017

I tried to make it out one last time. But due to that thing called work was unable to. You guys are the best. Always so friendly and helpful. (especially the deck hands) Even though a couple of times it was bad fishing, you guys made the best of it. Cannot wait till next season. Have a happy and safe holiday season.

Had a great day out on the Miss Belmar Princess with my son. Fish were out there but just not biting too good today. Some nice stripers were caught on the boat but no luck for us.

Patricia Y.

November 13th, 2017

My wife and I were on the boat yesterday and regardless of not catching anything (that’s just fishing) still had a wonderful time as usual. This was our first time on the Miss Belmar and we have fished on many similar boats but I must say this was the cleanest and most well organized boat I have been on and would definitely be back.

Ed & Colleen

November 12th, 2017

Very tough day fishing. So many little boats the big boats could not safely fish. The captain tried everything to put us on the fish and traveled up to just off NYC. The crew could not have been nicer. Even with no fish to come home with. It was a great day and I will go out with them again.

William Hewlett

November 5th, 2017

Great job by the captain putting us on fish and even greater job by Phil and all the mates on a chaotic bluefish frenzy. Not easy being so patient with a boat full of tangled lines with 20 pound bluefish dragging everyone around the boat all day. But the guys were great and we all caught huge fish and had a great time. Thanks again for a great time!

Bill Woskolub

November 5th, 2017

Great time yesterday crushing the monster blues. Mates did an excellent job untangling lines, gaffing fish, cleaning fish. The boat was full and the staff had the talent and patience to ensure everyone enjoyed their trip. Awesome job by the captain putting us in the fish!!!!!

Jeff Avery 

November 5th, 2017

I’ve been taking my son out blue fishing once a year for many years in the fall on the Miss Belmar Princess. Only boat I use. I keep an eye on the fishing reports they post and always caught blues, yesterday up to 17 pounders. The staff are awesome. Deck filled. MY freezer filled thanks to my son (17) Unfortunately, I got sea sick. Only second time in years. Was able to get one big one before we left. My picture was from last year. Need to update with this year’s photo. THANKS to all on the Miss Belmar Princess.

Vincent Parodi 

November 5th, 2017

Man this boat was awesome. The Captain and the crew, especially Billy. He gave my son some pointers on how to fish since it was his first time. He landed a killer blue about 21lbs and he is wanting to go again.

Fishing was rough but the captain and crew went above and beyond, never stopped searching and stayed out late to find the fish….highly recommend.

Bryan Babcock

September 24th, 2017

It was my first time deep sea fishing on a boat, and although the water was rough from the previous storms, I got sick, and I didn’t catch anything. The experience on the boat and the awesome crew helping us with everything made it turn out to be a wonderful experience. I plan on trying it again when the water is a little calmer. Thank you Miss Belmar Princess!

Veronica Harrell

September 18th, 2017 

Had a great day fishing Saturday. Brought my son Peter along to go for Blues/Stripers. Wound up taking home about 8 Mackerel, a nice Bonita, and three good size Albacore. Pete came close to winning the pool.Good thing I brought the Omaha Steaks Styro cooler, my other Coleman box would have been too small. Thanks to the Captain and Mates. Got to see a whale on the return trip!

Douglas M. Davis

This is our 4th time on the Miss Belmar Always an awesome time regardless. The staff are wonderful and always very helpful. Always willing to help out the kids to make sure they catch. Well done.

September 7th, 2017

I was on the boat Labor Day for the evening trip. It ended up being very rough. Almost all on board got sick! I was not one of them. I was laughing the whole time though, because I was unaware of everyone getting sick around me! ??? We headed back early, the Captain was so kind to give us a free trip in the future. And, I wasn’t thinking, when we were all in the cabin going back, (the boat was really tossing us about), I decided it was time for my free hot dog. UH, WHAT WAS I THINKING? Moses was kind enough to try to help me to the grill, and when the boat tossed me, I tossed him about like a wet dish towel. Moses, SORRY. I should have stayed put. THE CREW WAS GREAT. I’LL GO AGAIN, I STILL HAD FUN, even though no one else did.

From start to finish we were treated as if we were family! These guys keep a clean vessel and help us with any and everything we needed! I loved the experience and all of my friends that were with me had such a great time! We really couldn’t have asked for a better crew! And we will definitely be back again that’s for sure! Thanks again for the awesome time guys! I am telling all my friends about ya!

Michael Daneault

September 4th, 2017

Absolutely loved our trip the other morning. Couldn’t have asked for better deck hands, all were extremely friendly and helpful to everyone on the boat. Highly recommend this charter to anyone looking to have an amazing time on the water!

My wife bought us tickets to go on your boat as a 15 year wedding anniversary gift. We’ve been on your boat multiple times before and always have a great time. We limited out on sea bass and and caught two more and gave them the people who did not catch any legal size. My wife also caught a keeper fluke and a really big eel. The mate was polite and always there to lend a helping hand with the unexperienced fisherman next to me that kept tangling me up. LOL. It’s all in good fun it’s to be expected. My wife and I thank you for the good time and the memories.

Jason Samsel

September 2nd, 2017

This was my first time on the boat but my husband has been several times before. Bought a groupon for 5 people which included the rod, bait, a hot dog and drink. Boat was well maintained and the crew was great, very helpful for this first timer. Will definitely be back!!

Karen Kaseta Gordon

September 2nd, 2017

Great boat to be one with family or just even a friend. Crew is really welcoming and friendly, boat has two bathrooms. Even has a little kitchen on the inside with some really good food at more then a fare price. Highly recommend trying the homemade ice cream sandwiches, A+++. Can’t want to go fishing again. A bonus is Thursday night in the summer time after fishing they take you too see fireworks at Point pleasant from the water.

Chris Jaws

I’ve been everywhere you can drop head boats. My boats private charter today was one of my best trips with 40 fish between my wife and I. The mates were incredible and very attentive. The youngest, I believe Andy, knows his knots and knows them well. Really couldn’t have had a better day!

Bud Armstrong

August 13th, 2017

Had a wonderful time from the crew greeting me and my man, to us docking. I caught a lot of little fish but none to take home. It was ok not taking any home because the drilliging and experience was awesome. The crew was awesome, and oh, upstairs has chaise lounge chairs to rest and enjoy the scenery. GREAT TIME AND GREAT CREW and good luck on our next tennis champion on the Miss Belmar Princess. You have a personality of gold and I see you as a successful tennis player. Thank you for a wonderful experience.

Carolyn Ovando

August 12th, 2017

The boat was kept in exceptional condition throughout our entire trip. The crew was very attentive and very engaging throughout the trip. The crew interacted with my children as well and helped create a lasting memory for my family! We will definitely try to make it down for a striper trip in October. First Class operation!

JC’s Soup Kitchen

August 11th, 2017

We had an incredible time on the Miss Belmar Princess today…great crew…plenty of fish…clean boat…no matter where we anchored everyone caught fish…great job Captain. This was my daughters first ever catch and she will never forget it. The other fisherman all clapped and cheered for her…what a great day! And as a bonus we sailed to Pt. Pleasant for a day ending with a fireworks display. If you want to have a great time fishing (especially for you novices) look no further than the Miss Belmar Princess!

First time going fishing on a boat. One of the crew members caught a black drum! Very cool experience went on Thursday and got to see fireworks. Only caught 1 fish but they cut it up nice for us. Great crowd. Got a little sick so make sure to take dramamine beforehand. Plenty of seats inside and outside the boat. Had a great time.

We had a wonderful day trip deep sea fishing for Sea Bass. I knew my husband would love it; however I surprised myself at the enjoyment & restfulness of the experience! The captain & crew went out of their way to welcome us & assure we had all the help we needed.

We took our camp to Miss Belmar and could not have been happier. They were courteous, respectful, and so sweet to all the campers. And oh by the way, we caught 80 sea bass!! We would definitely use them again.

Camp Eeshay

July 18th, 2017

We had a really good time! My youngest son got a little sea sick and the crew made sure that he was ok and had everything he needed. The mates on the boat were polite, ready to help instantly, as well as very family friendly. My other younger son loved it! We can’t wait to go back!

BJ Brown

Jessica Tate

July 10th, 2017

My yearly trip with my daughter. It is a good time, great crew, and good fishing. Good boat with a great captain. There was a hurricane passing at sea about 7-8 years ago and the captain had to anchor off with two anchors and point to the swells. That big boat was up and down like a crazy ride in Orlando!!! He kept us safe and still caught great fish!!! Wouldn’t trust my life or good time to any other captain!!!

Lynn-Marie Hines

July 8th, 2017

You don’t need to be an expert because they are. Very nice crew. My 7-yr old had fun. A very clean boat too. The sunset and moonrise was amazing scene.

Karen Lee

June 26th, 2017

Great trip. The staff is what makes the trip though, along with good friends. We had a lot of fun with Steve, Frank and Moses. Outstanding mates. If you love fun, go ahead and deep sea fish with them.

Julie McDonald

June 15th, 2017

Been on the boat twice so far and each time we we’re on fish all day. Very nice crew. I will definitely be back plenty more times. Just went out today and already can’t wait to plan the next trip.

I wanted to say thanks for the trip yesterday fella’s. Myself and four co-workers had planned to fluke fish on captain cal 2 for fluke but he called Monday night and stated there was a mixup and fluke does not start until Thursday. So, I jumped on Google and searched for a backup plan, your boat was rated number 1, and I can see why. Beautiful boat, super fast and clean and awesome crew. Thank you very much for the pleasant experience aboard and we all look forward to fishing again!

Tight lines,

Michael Berlesky

May 18th, 2017

Was on the MBP today fishing and when the captain takes 120 feet of boat and lays her a couple of football fields from a jetty because that’s where the fish are you figure the captain’s gotta be damn good or crazy. Well, he’s that good but I believe he has a little bit of Evel Knievel in him. Looking for a great fishing trip this is the boat to be on. Shout out to the mates. Thanks.

John Martorano‎

May 18th, 2017

Thanks again captain Lenny. Another beautiful day on the water. Along with a great crew. Steve and amber thanks for an awesome time you 2 made the trip. Hope to see you guys/girls again for now tight lines & FISH ONNN!!!

Kyle Radler

May 17th, 2017

Great Captain. Great crew. Great boat. My daughter went with me blue fishing for the first time and we hooked into and caught fish all day long. A memory that will never be forgotten. Thanks to the Captain & Crew for a very special day for a retired Dad and his daughter. Excellent fishing boat. We’ll be back!

Robert Hutchins

April 23rd, 2017

We want to thank all of you for a fun time. Although the weather and fish were not cooperative, we still had a blast. And thanks to the Captain for trying. Can’t wait to book our next trip. You guys rock….. And as per my buddy, kudos to the cook. He makes a mean cheeseburger. LOL. Guess I will have to get me one next time.

Peter Calbo‎

December 5th, 2016

Wonderful welcoming staff as soon as we got to the dock! Very helpful and spot on with putting us right on the fish, thanks Captain! A special thank you to Steve, Frank, and Harold who were on top of it all and were extremely friendly and personable. Highly suggest Miss Belmar Princess! Thanks for a wonderful experience.

Katie Kurtz

November 30th, 2016

My second trip on the boat yesterday was AMAZING!

The crew is extremely friendly and willing to help you out, with no signs of being frustrated. From checking on your rod’s integrity to untangling lines to helping you dock your fish, someone is always there to help.

Also, their main concern is making sure everyone gets a fish to bring home. After landing some blues, my fiancé and I were gifted two slot stripers to take home!

The captain wasted no time. If the fish left, he moved us on top of more fish immediately.

The boat is clean and comfortable, adding to an awesome fishing experience.

Melina Jones

November 17th, 2016

I was fishing aboard Miss Belmar yesterday and even though I wasn’t lucky enough to catch a fish, the captain did an outstanding job and went above and beyond in his attempt to ensure everyone aboard had a chance to land the big one. Shout out to the mates being very helpful. No fish for me but a GREAT TRIP!

John Martorano‎

November 15th, 2016

This was my first time out fishing, and the crew on the Miss Belmar made the experience top notch! I can’t wait to come back down and catch more fish than the boys that brought me! Thanks fellas for making it such an incredible day!

Liz Melville

November 14th, 2016

We had a blast. The crew was awesome. Both of my daughters had a blast. I highly recommend for families of all ages.

Daniel Hutchins

November 6th, 2016

This was the best fishing trip I’ve been on so far! It wasn’t too crowded and if you got tangled, the staff was not annoyed getting you free. Also, they will stay out a little longer if the fish are biting!

Curtis Johnson

November 4th, 2016

Great time yesterday. Captain and crew were great and very helpful. The bacon egg and cheese sandwich was the best!

Mike Randall

October 17th 2016

The captain certainly knows where the big fish are. Sometimes you have a bad day but most of the time you limit out on blues and stripers on a good day.

Stephan Schindler

October 13th, 2016

We had a great time last Friday on our annual fishing trip!  Your crew is great to work with; they always make sure we enjoy ourselves.

Thanks again for a great fishing day!

Mary Ellen Ramirez

October 11th, 2016

Took my dad out yesterday for his 50th birthday. It was both our first time deep sea fishing so we really didn’t know what we were doing. The crew was a great help and very easy to talk to. The boat had a nice crowd on it but there was plenty of room to fish. The captain moved us 3 times depending on where the pod went. Although we only caught 1 fish between us, we had a terrific time and hope to return soon. We came from Allentown, PA and the drive was well worth it!

Luis Acevedo

October 4th, 2016

Lou Ogrady

October 2nd, 2016

We were three first timers out for a birthday celebration and absolutely loved it. We had zero idea of what we were supposed to be doing, but the crew made it an amazing day. Setting up our tackle, helping with tips and demonstrations, landing a fish for my buddy’s girlfriend and letting her reel it in, then doing the same for some kids there. Awesome time. Very affordable and would definitely go again.

Jeremy S.

September 25th, 2016

Great boat and crew. We drove in from Brooklyn to fish with them. The crew are awesome and are always there to help. The boat is clean and has a lot of room in the galley. This boat is fast and gets to spots a lot faster than the other guys. That means more time to fish. They have hot food and snacks. Over all I try and get a trip in a few times a month. Well worth it.

Carlos N.

September 23rd, 2016

Went on the Miss Belmar last year and again yesterday. Great bunch of people to go with and very helpful. Was great time and can’t wait to go again!!

Janet, Frank Leddy and I just wanted to thank the Miss Belmar staff, and you, for a terrific day yesterday.  The boat which is great for individuals, small or medium size groups and the four hour trip were first rate making multiple stops with a variety of fish.  We look forward to seeing you soon and down the road for more adventures.

My son is 8 and has wanted to go sea fishing for the longest time. I finally got around to booking a trip with the great folks on the Miss Belmar Princess. The entire experience was AMAZING.

For a short review- it is well worth the time and money; we did the 8 hour excursion and were thrilled with the experience.

For a longer version- it was my son, my wife and me. None of us had any experience fishing. The crew was very helpful. They helped us get our rods setup; we bought jigs from them on the boat ($6). For those of you who don’t know fishing; the jig is the “thing” you use instead of bait to attract and hook the fish. So if you don’t own any equipment- all you need for this fishing tour is sunscreen and water to stay hydrated. The boat itself is huge. The center portion of the boat is covered and they have a galley with a simple menu (burgers, breakfast sandwiches etc). The outer portions of the boat have rails along which you store your rod when not in use.

The crew and the captain do their best to bring you to areas of the bay where there are the most fish; and they pretty much won’t quit until you get to areas where the fish are biting like crazy. The crew members are very experienced anglers and they were very helpful in teaching us technique, and in some cases even hooking the fish and then allowing some of us newbies to reel them in. There is definitely a lot to it, but they were all really cool. We ended up with four huge fish that they filleted for us right on the boat.

I really cannot say enough how great the entire trip was. The crew, the boat, the whole experience. I know we will be back. Also the entire experience is very family friendly and kids are welcomed and treated like stars. That said though it is also fun for adults, if you have a group of guys who want to hit some brews and spend a day on the ocean, this is for you as well. I can’t wait for the next trip out with these guys.

Once again, had an awesome time this past Saturday. Rain held out for the most part. You guys rock. Especially the deck hands. Always so friendly and helpful.

To Steve and all of the crew of Miss Belmar Princess – thank you for the best time. My son and I had a great time and you folks really went out of your way to make our trip a lot of fun. We will be back…. OFTEN!!!

Had a great day and met some great people. The guys that worked the boat were a great help, thanks guys. Wish I was better with names. The deck hand that is a math teacher in Belmar High School was a great guy. Hope he hits me up as a friend on the book. Two thumbs up!

I went on my first fishing trip Friday with my brother. I was not sure what to expect or even what to do. My worries were quickly cast aside once I met the mates and crew. Chris and the other guys were incredible. This crew made us feel like we have known them forever. Bucky not only makes the best bacon egg and cheese sandwich, he is a great guy! Best hugs ever! I can’t say enough about this crew. I caught 2 blues and my brother 4. We are already planning our next trip out. The drive from VA was definitely worth it! Thank you for such a wonderful experience, a memory I will always have with my brother!! See you again soon!

The Miss Belmar Princess is a great choice if you’re looking to go out on a charter boat. They have great crew who are willing to help you out. From tying jigs to bringing your catch aboard the ship. The thing that makes me recommend them is that they do the best they can to help you (I got out fished by my girlfriend because of this). So, if you’re inexperienced, I’d say tag along with Miss Belmar Princess.

Thanks for the awesome time everyone!

I went out today, the mates were excellent, although the fishing was slow. The captain went all out to find fish, more so than any boat I’ve been on! Can’t say we didn’t try! Awesome day on the sea!

William Williams

June 17th, 2016

I’ve had a great time each time I’ve been out on the Miss Belmar; once for blue fishing (and praying for a striper underneath) and once for stripers. Both times the trips were successful and the crew and mates were helpful, funny and had us laughing — and learning — before the crack of dawn! It doesn’t get better than Santa’s breakfast sandwiches. I’ll never go on another boat again!

Went out on Sunday 5/22 and had a total blast. The crew — per usual — was awesome, helpful and a pretty decent source of comedy. 😉 Steve managed to untangle lines like a magician, and Harvey was a huge help to us as well! From Bucky….we got awesome breakfast sandwiches and lots of guilty laughs…as everyone should, from Santa. But seriously guys, thank you for making another awesome trip come together and we will be back again and then some more!


May 14th, 2016

This boat is always clean and the crew helpful. They give honest fishing results good or bad!

Took my two ten year olds and had an awesome time. The crew was very helpful and patient with my first time fishermen. I’d highly recommend this. It was a great experience.

Henry Olko

May 12th, 2016

It was a great day. The crew was always there to help an inexperienced old guy. Caught a bunch of fish and gave them to daughters friend who is a local chef. Great time & I got to look like a good guy. The chef was a hero. Doesn’t get any better.

Just finished fishing on Miss Belmar Princess and I had an absolute blast with both the crew and fellow fisherman. The trip was much more than what I had expected, being how inexpensive it was. They had it all including; rods, reels, jigs, great food (egg and bacon sandwich was amazing) and most of all an amazing staff. The crew members made it a point to go out of their way to help you feel comfortable with your level of fishing. They removed fish from lines and encouraged you with positive coaching and enthusiasm. One thing I would say is to do the fish pool. I did not and wished I had. At the end of the trip they take your largest fish on the dock and weigh it on a tipping scale against the current biggest fish. Even if you do not win, the spectacle of it would be worth it. People gather around and watch from the dock as one fisher goes lb for lb against another and the crew makes it entertaining. I was able to bring in 3 bluefish and would recommend this trip to anyone looking for some laughs and a great day of fishing.

The Captains work so hard to bring us close to large pockets of fish and then help us reel in the big ones.

Ralph W. 

April 3rd, 2016

The Captain always goes the extra mile to find the fish and makes you wanting to come back for more. The crew works just as hard too. When you leave the boat you’re already planning on the next trip! If you want to have a great experience and your best shot at catching fish, look no further because this is the best boat in the fleet!


April 3rd, 2016

The boat is clean and comfortable, even in the winter season when I use it. The captain does his best to put you on the fish, and the mates are always helpful and friendly and willing to share some of their “secrets” and opinions with you. Even on days when the fishing is less than spectacular, I always have a great time and never regret going out, full fish box or not.

I first went on a fishing trip on Miss Belmar Princess about ten years ago and my overall experience was great, not to mention how good the fishing was. I since go almost every other weekend during the summer and take my son with me. Soon he will be off to start his path of his life as a man, but in the mean time, we bond with these trips and create memories.

I have been blue fishing for 22 years and I’ve been on the princess 15 times. In my eyes the princess is the best boat in NJ. I’ll be on the princess again this year. I can’t wait. It’s always a good time.

Connie Hartzell

Captain always goes out of his way to put us on fish! Many times staying out later rather than just rushing back to the dock.

Joseph Frasca

The boat has a lot of room for all to enjoy fishing. The crew is very knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. The captain is good at putting you on the fish and making it a good day out on the water.

Crew is very helpful and the captain always finds fish. This doesn’t mean fish always bite, but never the less, it’s a good day out and well worth the money.

Great option for a day trip. They have a mix of pros and beginners. The crew is friendly and helpful with all ages. The boat is clean, big and fast…so you can’t beat it!

Christopher Martinovic

We have a blast every time we go out on the Miss Belmar Princess. We don’t always catch fish but the mates make sure its fun. I would recommend the princess for fishing trips with kids.

We had a great time. I brought my 3 year old son and 8 year old daughter. Crew was great and boat was very clean. By the way, make sure to try the homemade ice cream cookie sandwiches. They were awesome.

Michael Metz

March 8th, 2016

I’ve never encountered a problem on the Princess.  From the very first I boarded and had a faulty fishing line, the captain let me use a boat rod to fish with and I’ve been sailing with them ever since. I always feel at home and very comfortable when I sail the Princess. That’s the vessel for me and I have had friends come along for night blues and would still recommend the Belmar Princess.

Great captain and crew. They really try to find the fish, and when they do, they are great helping you. Definitely would recommend fishing on their boat.

The Miss Belmar Princess is the BEST and the only boat that I will ever fish on!! I have been fishing on the Miss Belmar Princess for 10-15 years now. Captain Lenny is the best captain on the whole east coast. If you are not catching fish, Captain Lenny moves until you find the fish!! He is the best and he is a class act as well. Always treats me like family. The entire crew is also the very best. Every time I go fishing on the Miss Belmar Princess, the entire crew makes me feel like family. Bucky is also the best cook around. So, from Captain Lenny, to Harold, to John, to Dave, to Bucky, and even cranky Frank, they are by far the best crew ever!! I love fishing on the Miss Belmar Princess!!

Mark Mellinger

I have been going with these guys all year and let me tell you, this years crew is really good. They are there for you when you need them and won’t crowd you if you know what your doing. If you don’t, they take the time to show you and then make sure your doing it right. The event, to go fishing on the Princess isn’t just to fish it’s to pleasantly enjoy the ocean. I have been turned into a loyalist with these guys. If the fish are there they’ll put u on them. If they aren’t biting; they’ll do their best to find ones that do for you.

This is the 5th year with you and wouldn’t think of changing. 1st class service. Keep up the good work and see you next year.

Fished until my arms fell off. Go to the gym for a month before getting on the Princess. Tight lines.


November 6th, 2015

Ahhh man. Captain was on top of the blues allllllll dayyyyyyyy loooooonnnnnnggggg. I don’t think y’all hear me, I think I just found a new boat home. I didn’t sit down all day  and the mates were on point with the gaft. Food was cooked on board good. Couldn’t get better than that. Two thumbs up guys.

I don’t fish salt water often, but when I do, the Miss Belmar Princess is my boat of choice. The boat is clean; the mates are helpful and the captain works hard to find fish. I also believe their reports are honest – when they’ve had a bad day, they say so. Over they years, I’ve caught a bunch of nice bluefish and stripers on this boat.

Vincent White

October 11th, 2015

I loved the service! The crew was extremely nice and helpful! Would definitely fish aboard again.

Had a blast with my dad and brother. I caught two skates and so did a few others with some sea robins and small sand sharks mostly. It was a few days after a storm so water was too churned up. But nevertheless…  Had a great time and staff and crew was great! Would highly recommend and can’t wait to go again.

WOW! What an awesome experience on Miss Belmar Princess. The crew was friendly, entertaining, and very helpful, especially Phil, who was by our side the entire time, giving us lots of attention and help when needed. It was so exciting catching all those fish. One of my sons caught the biggest one of the day! Thank goodness I had brought a nice big cooler to put it in. Thanks to everyone on the Miss Belmar Princess for a GREAT TIME! My family and I can’t wait to come on board again. Once again, thank you!

I recently moved to California but when I come to visit the east coast again this will be the first boat I will always be on. Great captain, great crew and I never had a bad experience on this boat yet. I love this boat and I do miss all the people on the Miss Belmar Princess. Thank you for everything always, Alan.

June 30th, 2015

I just wanted to thank all the staff on this boat. I had a really great time and there is one person who I need to thank the most, and that person is Drew. I am thanking him because he helped me when I needed help, and he stayed with us when we needed help, and he was very nice to stay there and help us and to have the patience. Again, thank you very much. I had a great time.

I can not say enough about our experience on the Miss Belmar Princess. We had a group of fathers and  sons that came down from the north to enjoy some time together. We were greeted at the slip and taken on-board for us to choose our spot. During the day, the mates appeared mysteriously at the time of a birds nest on reel. One of the only boats you can see in or out side of the windows. Day was great. Especially when they had a option to go up top to the lounge  chairs. What great memories. This boat has a great team.
Thanks guys! Number one boat on the Jersey Shore 2015.
P.S. They have great t-shirts for sale. Ask to see them.

May 19th, 2015

As a former Golden Eagle fisherman, your Captain and mates go above and beyond to give you a chance to catch fish. The mates are always willing to help in any way. Yes there are times when the fish are there but won’t bite, but that’s nobody’s fault. I have to say it’s night and day from your boat and others and that’s what keeps me and my group coming back each time from PA.

Thank you for providing us with a good safe boat for our pleasure and enjoyment. I for one will always sail on the Miss Belmar Princess or go home if I have to. When you find a home with a built in Family it is a blessing that come from above. Good times are always available, catching fish is the big bones. If it is an off day and the fish are laughing at us trying to catch them so be it. The fisherman on your right or left shoulder is there to help and share some pleasant conversation. The fare you pay for the day fishing is nothing compared to all you receive in return. Sail on Miss Belmar Princess and may God always be with us and protect us always.

Bob Ryba and Family

January 5th, 2015

This is one of the best, if not the best run company on the water. From the Captain to the Cook and all the mates, they are very professional and kind to all. If you’ve never gone fishing then I would recommend going on the Miss Belmar Princess. It is 120 ft. long and has 3 engines with approximately 2,100 horsepower and his/her own washrooms.

Best boat in Belmar!

I am writing to compliment Captain Lenny of the Miss Belmar Princess. I went out fishing on Tuesday. October 28th on the day run for stripers and blues. Although the fish weren’t cooperating, the captain kept urging the patrons to move their jigs to facilitate action, that they weren’t bait fishing. Using the locator to find where the fish were, he kept moving the boat the various locations to offer the best opportunities. Although the boat was scheduled to return at 2:30 PM, he kept the trip going until at least 4:00 PM to insure that everyone on board had the opportunity to catch something. In all, his dedication to your customers was exemplary, and he is a credit to your organization. Captain Lenny insured that this fisherman, for one, will be returning to the Miss Belmar Princess for another day at sea.

Thank you for your time.


October 16th, 2014

The captain and mates gave us a great day out!! I would recommend this to everyone who is even slightly interested in this trip!! Two thumbs up!!

John Palsa

September 30th, 2014

Me and some great friends went fishing with you on Tuesday, September 30th. We had an awesome time! Captain Lenny put us on the fish the whole time! Thanks for a great day and trip! We will be back!

I have only fished a couple times this year and I made it on your boat 2 times. I would like to tell you your email updates are great and hopefully you keep them going. Your website is a thing of beauty with the pictures and summary. Hope to see you next year.

Had a great time on yesterday afternoon’s trip on the Royal Miss Belmar. First time on this boat. Now, I have fished on every Miss Belmar since my very first trip night blue fishing on the pink boat back in July 1969 . I think that was your Grandfather’s boat, my first night fishing trip and the first ever blue fish I caught. I was 13 year’s old then. I have great memory of fishing on all the Miss Belmar’s! Thanks Alan. Will be taking my wife with me the next time I go on her!

Dear Captain Alan,

I just wanted to thank you so very much for the wonderful experience my son and I had on your vessel.  This was the first time my son has ever been deep sea fishing and because of your crew, he can’t wait to hit the high seas again!  Mr. Frank, Mr. Chris, and Mr. Gary were so wonderful. They took the time to help me and my son with tangled lines. They got us back fishing so quickly. Not only were they kind, but they were also very informative and educational.  They showed us proper/more effective ways to bait our rods and then even told us the difference between types of fish. I can’t say enough about them.  They were AWESOME!

By the end of the day my son caught three fish!  Unfortunately, he had to put them back in the ocean because of their size, but that experience was priceless. We look forward to coming back and visiting soon.  Next time we plan to bring Dad and Sister with us!

Thank you again!

LOVE this BOAT and the CREW … had a fantastic fishing day yesterday … Our group pulled up 21 blues between the 4 of us not counting the rest of the boat … See you in 2 weeks … also, Karin is the BEST …


May 29th, 2014

Great job by Captain Alan on an absolutely rough sea day! We had extremely tough seas for the first part of the day and then it calmed down as we chased the blues all day. We picked at them here and there and Captain Alan never stopped trying for us to get some “FISH ON”. Almost everyone on the boat caught a few blues on this tough day. The deckhands were willing to help at all times. Brian was the deckhand in the back of the boat who helped us and he did a great job! We look forward to coming for a summer night trip with our group.

Hi Alan,

Just wanted to say thanks again for the hospitality you and your crew showed myself and my wife.  I knew the ocean was going to be a little nasty so we took the ride down from CT to Belmar figuring the Jersey shore and a big boat would give us some comfort with a howling west wind.

After working on bluefish boats in Long Island for years, I’ve seen my share of good fishing and big fish, but never saw so many legit 20 pound fish, no joke.  Your crew was excellent, always right there with a gaff, Lenny on point kept us on the fish all day and came down to help gaff when things got absurd with 20-25 fish on at a time.

My wife put the rod down around 11AM, she had enough, then picked it up again the last drift, caught one more about 17 pounds and said she must be absurd for torturing herself…

Again thank you. How your boat was run is how all should be run.

Marc Starstream

October 22nd, 2013

We had a GREAT TIME. The captain worked so hard to put us on fish. While the other boats were sitting in one spot, our captain moved every time the schools of fish moved. THANK YOU!

Dwayne Spencer

October 4th, 2013

Belmar Princess rules!! My father and I have been out twice in the past two years, both times we were hammering nasty big blues most of the day. What impressed me most though is the crew of the ship. Their level of professionalism, and their skill at assisting with every aspect of fishing was amazing! As a side bonus, we’ve always seemed to have a great group of guys along side us, never a rude guy or A hole in the group.

Walt Thomas

I just wanted to let you know how much fun I’ve had on your boat. I’ve spoken to Karin a few times over the phone as well as Alan and I can only say wonderful things. I made my way up to Miss Belmar last summer and had a blast and have been there twice in the past 3 weeks and am already planning another trip up. First off, I want to commend you on your crew, Scott is terrific as well as Matt who helped us out a lot!!! There was another kid, I can’t recall his name, but he works the late night blue trips and goes to school in Massachusetts if that helps? I just wanted to thank you all because I think the way you run your business in commendable and I love your boats!!! Hope this finds you well.

Dear Alan Shinn and the entire Crew of The Miss Belmar,

My mother and friends of ours decided to come to the Jersey Shore for a visit with my boyfriend Mark Wyzykowski, and myself.  They showed an interest in fishing so Mark said we should all go on one of his favorite party boats, The Miss Belmar. Mark explained to everybody that he has sailed with your boat many times and it has always been a wonderful experience. Boy, was he ever so right!  We all had one of the most wonderful experiences, one that we shall never forget.  The entire crew and the experience to us “1st timers” was just awesome.  As my mother said to Bucky as she was leaving, “We will be back!”

As soon as we pulled up in our cars, and even before leaving the dock, we were greeted by members of the crew and they treated us like we were all old friends, helping us set up our poles and informing us as to where we can keep our belongings and assuring us that nothing will be disturbed by anyone but us which made us so very comfortable.  During the course of our experience, Captain Lenny welcomed us up to the Wheel House for a tour. It was so kind of him to explain all of the fishing electronics and their purpose and it made our experience ever more interesting. We really enjoyed the tour he gave us, we felt so at home.

Bucky, is a gem to your crew who makes great french toast by the way. 🙂 He treated my mother and all of us with such with such kindness, including letting her reel in a fish, and helping her and talking to her, she really enjoyed the entire experience.  Your 2 crewmates Johnny, and I can’t remember the other gentleman’s name, I think it was Steve (who has the awesome tattoo on his back) were so very helpful and understanding, including when my friend Jane hooked a huge stingray and they kept that thing on the line for 2 1/2 rounds on the boat.  My friend Jane was awestruck on how helpful your crew members were.

All in all our experience and time on your boat was just fantastic and we will definitely be back very soon.  Wow, my mother was so relaxed on your boat that she even took a nap lol, and for her to be able to do that you can tell that she was very happy and relaxed where she was.

Your entire crew should be commended for a Job Well Done!

In closing, may I ask that you forward this letter to all of the members of your crew, and that my boyfriend Mark gets a big kiss from me for recommending such a wonderful experience with such a wonderful boat.  Please continue to keep up the fine work, as I am sure you will, as we are looking forward to our next trip which will be real soon.

Captain Alan,

I wanted to say thank you for making my wife’s surprise 40th ‘sunset cruise’ a great night. The boat was spotlessly cleaned as you said it would be and the crew was courteous and helpful as you said they would be. But ultimately, it was your professionalism and expert boat handling during not so ideal weather conditions that made the evening a huge success. We had a blast and most definitely in the near future will be back on the Royal Miss Belmar or the Princess for another cruise or fishing! With much gratitude I say thank you.

Hi there!

My name is Dave Flores out of Reading, PA. I just wanted to thank you  guys for some of the best blue fishing I ever had last night! I brought four guys with me and we caught 59 blues!!!!! The captain was great! He put us on the fish and made sure every one caught fish and had lots of fun!! He even chummed for a while when the mates were too busy gaffing fish. You don’t see that very often! The rest of the crew did an excellent job helping everyone and landing the fish! Excellent night of jumbo blues! I’ll be back for sure and I’ll be bringing more friends along with me!!!!!! Great fun, great crew and an excellent Captain!!! It’s great to see someone knows how to catch them!! I myself caught my limit and also caught a few more for my buddies, 24 to be exact!! Thanks again for a great night of fishing!!

I just wanted to drop you a note,

I took my son (7 ½) for his first time fishing on a party boat and we both loved it. We caught some skates, small fluke, small sea bass, sea robin and then came the keepers. We caught one sea bass keeper then 4 more. I probably won’t rent him a pole next time, it was too heavy for him to maneuver but I would hook something and hold it so he could reel it in. it worked out perfectly. He actually caught a sea robin legit yesterday, fishing by himself and reeled it in himself.

The crew was great, always around and always very helpful and would show my son the different types of fish and where to hold them. He loved it, we both did, so much that he wanted to go back in the afternoon.

Again, thanks for a great trip and we will definitely be back for more.

Myself, my brother and my nephew were out on a trip with you guys on Tuesday, July 9th.  We had a really great time.  The crew was excellent and it was fun getting into so many blues.  We went on the trip for my nephews birthday and  being that it  was his  first time out he really had a blast. Thanks for a great trip, we will definitely be back for more!

We had a great time yesterday on the Royal Miss Belmar. The crew was great and were there to help you. My kids and nephews can’t wait to go again. They had a great time with their Grandfather and each other. Looking forward to the posting of their pictures on your site. My son Erik even won the pool! We will be down again.

I would just like to thank you for an awesome day on your boat today. Your crew and Captain were very helpful. Your one mate with the white glasses, I think his name was DJ, was working our section of the boat. He was very polite to our group and worked very hard taking our rookie tangles out. He was great to my kids, hooked fish for them all day even hooked a keeper for us. I will be back on your boat in the first week of August hoping to catch a few more keepers this time. I will definitely suggest this boat to friends and family.

Thank you sooo much for a fun day on the Royal Miss Belmar! See ya’ in August!!

Good Morning,

First of all, I would like to personally thank you folks for the wonderful memories I received when I brought my 12 year old grandson and his friend on a night trip for blues this summer. We had a wonderful time and caught lots of fish. We are looking forward to coming out for stripers this fall. I am a brother to Carl Martin who has been bringing supplies to your boat for the hurricane victims. We will be heading out again Thursday morning with water, cleaning supplies, some clothing, and of course our prayers. Our church folks have been overwhelming with their gifts.

Again, thanks for doing what you are doing.

Dear Captain Alan and Crew,

I would like to take this opportunity to wish you Happy Holidays and also thank you for bringing a pleasure of fishing into our life.

We started deep sea fishing with Miss Belmar about 2 years ago. Usually there are 2 of us: my 11 year old son and myself. There was not one single time when we came home without catching anything. The team is friendly and very professional. The organization of the process is excellent which makes every trip an enjoyable event.

Thanks for being there and best of luck!

To the Captain of the Miss Belmar Princess,

I would like to compliment you and your crew, especially Mike, for making our trip on Wednesday one to remember. My two sons and I took the 7:30 a.m. trip and we truly had a great time. Mike, working our side of the boat, was full of fishing tips and patience. Several times we got tangled up, lost jigs and needed help pulling in some great Blues and Striped Bass and Mike was right there to help.  The day was highlighted by my younger son Ryan pulling in his first catch of the day at 1:15 p.m., a 27.66 lb Striped Bass which won the pool. Lunch and beers of course were on him. We will definitely sail with you again soon and I will highly recommend to anyone that wants a great day of fishing to go with The Miss Belmar Princess.

Thanks for a great day,

Sandy, Jason and Ryan Snyder  Howell, NJ

That would be great! We were indeed out yesterday. My nephew & husband each caught….the great cook you have-(what a super nice crew you have all the way around!) let me “nail his fish”…. My nephew had a wonderful time-his 1st time for deep sea fishing.

We will be coming back as soon as we can. Appreciate you honoring the card discount. Your guys said the picture of my guys might be on the website too-gives nephew a big thrill! Thanks for being such a fun time for us over and over!

We had a great time last night. Between two people we caught 17 fish and the biggest fish was about 14 pounds. The mates were so helpful gaffing the fish. Also the captain was very helpful. We will definitely go out on the boat again.

Hi Miss Belmar,

I had a wonderful time on your Saturday morning fishing trip this past weekend!!! I am still in complete awe that I caught 5 fish!!! I’ll definitely be back soon to try and repeat the beginner’s good luck!!! Thanks so much for the wonderful experience!!!

Dear Captain,

My name is Megan Johansen and this past Saturday night I went fishing on the  Miss Belmar. My family and I had so much fun on your ship. I would just like to thank you again for making this an amazing experience for everyone. You and your crew helped me out tremendously and I couldn’t ask for better service. I know for a fact my family and I will be back soon!

Thank you again,

It was a great night of fishing, warm weather and lots of blue fish. There was an additional view in the night. The column of light from the World Trade Center in NYC. We were at least 50 miles away and it was clear as a bell.

Bernie & Tim Smith

September 13th, 2012

Joe and I, and our friends Allyson and George, all had a great time Tuesday the 11th! We caught so many fish! Also, I’d like to compliment the captain and crew for being so kind, funny and so very hard-working. You have a great bunch of guys on Miss Belmar Princess. Thanks for an awesome day!

The crew was great, as was the Captain. I returned to work on Saturday afternoon at Princeton University and my coworkers were jealous that I went again….solo. They’re planning a trip in 2 weeks. Well see you then.

Good Morning,

I want to express my deepest thanks to you and the crew of the Miss Belmar Princess for an excellent night of fishing. This was our 3rd trip this year and the experience gets better each time. The crew in this boat is the best, especially Captain Scott and deck hand Sal. From the time that the van pulled to the dock to the time we departed my Commander was highly impressed with the level of professionalism of your crew.

Thank You for a great trip!

Hi Karin,

I just wanted to say THANK YOU for such a great fishing trip.  Jesse was completely surprised and the crew was so helpful.  We all had so much fun and will definitely be fishing with you again soon.

Thanks and take care,


August 30th, 2012

Crew –

I just wanted to thank you!!! I took my son on today’s trip, his first blue fish trip, and he had an awesome time!! Your mates, especially Jimmy helped us out sooo much. We’ll definitely be back.

Captain Lenny was working with the crew non-stop (as a good leader does) and I appreciate all the replacement hooks my son and I needed as the blues kept eating them!! We have continued our yearly summer tradition of fishing with you for many years, and this is the reason we continue coming back to board the fantastic Miss Belmar Princess!!! Thanks again to Captain Lenny and the entire crew!

My wife and I had a great day this past Sunday and she asked to return. Not your average spouse! She asked me to write and see if I could get a copy of the picture they took of me Sunday. I am the old man with a Yankee hat on that needed two hands to hold up a bluefish. Thanks to all, and our mate Ryan, who took great care of us. We haven’t been out for blues in over 30 years.

Michael McCormick, Hamilton, NJ

August 7th, 2012


I was on the Saturday night blue fishing trip. Just to add my 2-cents, I know how much it costs in fuel to run a big boat like yours, so I really appreciate you taking us out a little further to where the big blues were. Your effort to get us “on” the fish is the difference between just a boat ride and a fishing trip!  Those were the biggest blues I’ve ever caught in my 50 years.


August 5th, 2012


My name is Ken and my friends and I were out on your boat last night and it was packed. At first I was not looking forward to going out, but we decided to go anyway and we were so glad we did. Blues were biting well and it was nonstop action. Your mates on the boat did a great job taking care of everyone. They really earned their tips. So, I wanted to say thank you and let you know that you have a great team on The Miss Belmar Princess.

Thank You, Ken Ludwig

August 2nd, 2012

I went out with you guys for blues yesterday. Had a tremendous day. Once we went further out and started hitting the bigger blues, it was non-stop. Times I would get a hit before my jig hit bottom. Was so busy, couldn’t (or wouldn’t) take a beer break. Great job. Glad I went back out with you and the crew!

Andrew Stevens, Princeton, NJ

July 18th, 2012

Hi guy’s!

I just want to say I had a great time last night. Got 10 jumbo blues and my arms are still tired. LOL!! Non stop action on the boat last night!!  I have fished with this captain many times in the past. The guy knows his stuff. I was talking to someone who was on the Golden Eagle in the parking lot and they didn’t do as good as we did. I think the Miss Belmar Princess is by far the best night blue fishing boat in NJ!  And I just want to put in a good word for that young  boy . He got all my fish on- board. He’s going to be a great mate, or should say, is a great mate!! Will be on with my son in late August and a few times in the fall!! Thanks for another great night of fishing like always. Been fishing with you guy’s since 1969!!

My name is Andy Andrejciski. I was the pool winner on 7/10/12. Love the fishing, deckhands and Captain were great. They took the time to chat with all fishermen/women. Was the best fishing experience ever for me and my son.

Thanks, Andy Newfoundland, PA

July 6th, 2012

I just got in from the 7:30 p.m. – 2:30 a.m. trip and have to say your crew was incredible. Great teamwork by all the guys, Blake, Matt & Brian, and they truly made it a memorable and pleasant trip. I’ll definitely be coming back and bringing more friends.

Thanks, Frank Luna

June 23rd, 2012

I want to personally thank you and the crew for an excellent day of fishing. It was the best time so far. My girlfriend, Elisabeth Kozlik from Newfoundland, PA caught the winning fish so that was really a plus! It was a 41.5 pound striper!  It was such a great time and we cannot wait to do it again. Maybe sometime in August.

Thank you again! Robert Mascola

June 17th, 2012

Karin & Alan,

I just wanted to thank you guys for having us on the boat yesterday. It was  awesome. Everyone had a blast and caught lots of fish. The guys on the boat were fantastic too. A great experience and will help a ton when we’re at all these events. Once again thanks for having us. Have a great Father’s Day weekend too.

Paul Wyatt

June 13th, 2012

This email is to thank Captain Alan and the crew of the Miss Belmar Princess for a great day of fishing. On May 27th I took a group of 15 military members for a day of fishing on the Belmar Princess. The professionalism displayed by all members of the crew was second to none. I will be happy to recommend your boat to all my customers and keep using this boat for future trips. One more time, thank you for a great time and we will see you in the near future.

Respecfully, Jose M. Villegas

June 6th, 2012

I would like to thank you for a very successful night fishing trip.  The Capt. and mates did a 1st Class job.  This was my first trip out with you and I’ll be back again with my friends.

Thank you, Bill Bridgeford

June 4th, 2012

Dear Sirs,

I just wanted to write to say that I went out on the Miss Belmar Princess this past Saturday night (June 2) and had probably the best fishing experience in 35 years.  Sure, we caught a lot of fish but I have enjoyed such situations before.  What you need to know about is the exemplary performance, attitude and professionalism of your captain and crew.  I have fished from virtually every party boat that has sailed out of Belmar for over 3 decades and this is unquestionably the best I have seen.  I was especially impressed with how they coached and managed the handling of a good sized crowd, minimizing tangles and effectively handling situations that did arise, getting everyone quickly back to the rail.  Your mates acted with firm yet polite professionalism that was a pleasure to see. I can’t guarantee that I can come out as often as I would like (fixed income and the like) but even when I can’t, know that I will be encouraging others to sail with you.  Keep up the good work.

Dan McNamara

May 15th, 2012

My Dad and I wanted to thank you and everyone who worked on the boat on Saturday when we were there to remember my little sister. The guys were fantastic and took care of us, we deeply appreciate it. It was nice to see my Dad smile as he did that day, it’s been tough on him losing my sister. She truly enjoyed fishing on your boat just a few months before she passed. So again, thank you and see you again next year.

Sincerely, Alyssa Mulherin

May 15th, 2012

I took a trip May 13, 2012 on the Miss Belmar Princess! Before stepping on the boat we were greeted by Brian who knew who our party was! It felt very nice to be greeted before entering the boat! We were placed in a convenient spot on the ship to get to everything. The Mates on the boat were extremely nice and friendly. Frank was always right there before we could even turn our heads! Bucky, the cook, was a funny, nice, sweet man.  He made our Mom have a great trip on Mother’s Day! Also it being my birthday, I got to bring in a 20 pound striper! I will never forget the experience from the day! Our uncle from South Carolina said he would never step foot on another ship! The Belmar Princess is a great experience. Before we got home I was already asking when we can plan our next trip! Thank you, to everyone on the Ship and Crew! Brian, Bucky and Frank. THANK YOU!

I’m coming to Jersey tomorrow. Be fishing on Tuesday. Thanks again for sending me all the fishing updates. Compliments to you for the great Captains & Mates you have on your charters. Makes great fishing + your boats are the nicest out of the Jersey fleet.


May 11th, 2012

We had our annual Monmouth Building Center charter trip on the Belmar yesterday. All an all it was a good day. Lenny and the boys, Brian, DJ and Joey did a great job. Fishing was on the slow side but we didn’t care, it was just nice to be away from work. The service was excellent and we wouldn’t go on any other boat. Thank you Alan, Lenny, Brian, DJ and Joey. See you in the fall.

May 3rd, 2012

This was my 1st trip this season on your great boat. Capt Scott Gold took us out today with a very small group of fishermen and I greatly appreciated it since I just returned from wintering in Florida and I WAS VERY ANXIOUS to catch my first bass of the season. I was lucky and caught a large one which gave an old salt like me a great thrill which would not have been possible if you did not sail. Thank you for sailing with a small group….you guys are great….

Dick Skinder

April 15th, 2012

Hi Everyone,

Just a short note to thank all of you for three great striper trips April 15-17th. Captains Lenny and Scotty worked hard to put us on the fish—resulting in many satisfied fishermen. I managed to take home three nice fish, one weighing in over 25lbs. I also have to thank Blue Fish Brian, Frank, Brian and all the other mates for their advice and help. And of course—Bucky for his wit and humor. I plan to travel to Belmar this weekend in time to make the Sunday afternoon trip and stay thru Tuesday. Kudos to everyone and see you soon.

Dear Captain,

Thanks guys for all your assistance. We had a blast, especially since Danny won the pool. LOL.

We will always ‘”highly” recommend the Miss Belmar Princess for anyone’s fishing needs. You guys ROCK and we hope to see you again soon. 🙂

Thanks again!

Today was my second Mackerel Express trip (first was at the end of Jan) the weather was perfect and I wound up pulling in double the Mackerel. Since this weekend is a long one for most kids having Monday off for Presidents Day, and it might be the last weekend for Mackerel Express. Why not bring the kids out Saturday, Sunday, or Monday to have some fun pulling in Mackerel or Herring? It’s a great beginner trip that also gets you guys and kids out of Mom’s hair. Plenty of Mackerel of all sizes for anybody with Cabin Fever who could use some fresh air and FISH!!!!! Come one come all. No I don’t get anything for this reccommendation…..

Douglas Davis

February 19th, 2012

Hi Karin,

Sorry, but you got buried. Four weeks or so ago, I inquired about Mackerel fishing (first timer). You replied back saying  “we’re gonna’ have a blast!”  Well we did – you called it. What a fun time. I’m a little late – but Aidan and I wanted to thank you and your crew- again you guys were great – what a big help for the amateur fishermen. Hope to see you soon. Thanks.

I sailed today on the Miss Belmar Princess. I want to say that my experience was wonderful thanks to the crew. The mates were the best ever. I have been sailing on different party boats in NY and NJ and your crew was the best ever. Professional, polite, always at the right time at the right place. Thank you.

Hello Miss Belmar,

My friend and I had a blast on Monday.  Stripers were biting hard and we limited out by 12:00.  It was a blast and it really was great to have a captain who knew where the fish were. It felt like the minute we put our jigs down, we caught something…really great day and I also won the pool.

Thank you again.  You have a great team working for you.  It was our 4th time going and we always have a great time.  Keep it up and have a great off season!

As a veteran I would like to thank you for what you are doing. I personally can’t take advantage of your offer but I do fish on your boat. I actually was there this past Tuesday. Your staff couldn’t be any nicer or more helpful. Once again thank you for remembering where our freedom came from.

Hi Karin. Our 12 Guys from “Four Seasons Manalapan” thoroughly enjoyed the Tropical Adventure fishing trip this morning. One of our guys, Jerry Deutch, won the pool with a 6 pound fluke! Thanks to Capt. Jack, Kathy, Phil, and Chris for making it a great day.

July 25th, 2011

Myself and my family, Jimmy, Sean, Timmy, Mike & Greg came out with you guys Friday the 21st for night blue fish. It was the best time we ever had. I have been on your boat before and also have done very well, but this past Friday was great. My son won the pool and we each caught more fish then we could ever want. Mike is from Texas and he comes fishing with me all the time but has never been on your boat and he couldn’t stop talking about it. Your mate’s were great, Captain Scott was right on the fish and we never had to move. Will be looking forward to sailing with you guys again.

Hi Alan,

I came to the Belmar area to fish mostly for fluke and sea bass. Got there June 16th & stayed until July 15th. Tried 6 other charter boats till I got on the Tropical Adventure. 4 boats out of Point Pleasant, 2 out of the Belmar marina. I fished on the Tropical Adventure almost every day except for a few breaks. Some days I took both the morning & afternoon trips. Caught oodle’s of fish. Some days were non stop with up to 50 fish, lots of shorts but also a lot of keepers. I was losing a lot of heavy fish & thanks to Frank (mate) he solved the problem. The Tropical Adventure is by far the cleanest, friendliest, good food served & nicest boat I ever fished on. Captain Jack Donavan & Captain Scotty are pro’s with an exceptional knowledge of the ocean and where to fish. They put you on the fish & will do everything for you except give you the fish. Kathy Short is a great person with a smile & welcome aboard reception every morning. Also, don’t forget the mate’s. Very good at what they do. Tip them generously cause’ Frank, Phil & Tommy always go 100% more than other mate’s I have met. Be back in August for a month. You have found a life long friend.

John Duda, Osceola Mills, PA

Greetings to All,
Captain Alan, I was in the Belmar area from the 26th to the 29th of June. Between the Tropical Adventure and the Miss Belmar I was able to get in 5 fishing trips. I wanted to write you a short note and let you know that I enjoyed each and every trip. My first trip Sunday morning was on the Princess and there were a lot of people on the boat that day. I expected a lot of chaos once the fishing started and of course there was a lot of tangles lines and some hot tempers, but Captain Lenny and the crew handled the situation very well.

Both of my outings on the Tropical Adventure produced a lot of fish, the crew was fantastic and Kathy was able to post my picture – a keeper decided to take my bait. That fluke became the dinner the following evening.

The highlights of my fishing trip were the Monday & Tuesday night blues trips. Captain Scotty really exceeded my expectations. The first night he found the fish, anchored the boat and he and the crew kept the fish around the boat until everyone had their limit – both in numbers and reached their physical limit. It was the best blue fishing trip I was ever on! Tuesday night took a little longer to find a good spot to anchor. Once anchored the fishing was great. I’ve been on several other fishing trips before where the Captain dropped anchor to please the customers but the fishing sucked. Captain Scotty took the time to find a productive spot and then anchor the boat. Personally, I would rather scout for the fish for as long as it takes then drop a line and not get any action.

I’m already working on plans for my next four-five day stay in Belmar to patronize your business. In the meantime, I’m trying to get a couple car loads of people to go on a night trip. As soon as I get the number of people and the date set I’ll write back and make the reservation.

Please pass on my words of gratitude to everyone. I’m looking forward to seeing you guys again soon.

Thanks again,

Steve Zdrofcoff, Allentown, PA

Captain Alan & the Miss Belmar crew, Frank & Kathy on the Tropical Adventure,

I just wanted to let all of you know that I had a great time while fishing on the two boats while I was at the shore last week. I was greeted with friendly smiles and treated with respect – the way I treat others – that doesn’t happen enough these days. So I want to thank all of you. I will be returning to Belmar definitely on the 26th, maybe sooner if I can rearrange my schedule and I look forward to making as many trips to both of the boats as much as I can. I’ve owned a business for over thirty years and have learned that it’s a lot easier to keep a customer than try to find a new one. You guys are doing something right.You will be getting a few more people from this area fishing with you. Word of mouth is the best advertising.

See you soon and thanks again.

Steve Zdrofcof, Allentown, PA

June 19th, 2011

Hi, trip was awesome. All kids enjoyed it. Plus, my daughter won the pool. All in all your boat is excellent and I will continue to be your customer and refer everyone I know. Thank you for an awesome trip and an awesome Father’s Day!

To the Captains and Owners of the Tropical Adventure,

I took my daughter’s this afternoon fishing on your vessel and had one of the best party boat experiences ever. My daughter’s are both college age and we only go saltwater fishing a couple of times each year, but I wanted to write you.

The reason we had such a good time is because your crew was so friendly, professional and helpful. I have fished party boats in NJ, RI, FL & CA and this was the best. Everyone chipped in to help, no one ever seemed to be bothered and the fishing was good. A special thanks to Frank and a fellow fisherman today who sometimes works for you named Hunter.

I highly recommend your fishing fleet and look forward to sailing with you again.

Thank you,

Tom Bannos, Berkeley Heights, NJ

I took the 1/2 day fluke trip today with my Granddaughter who was deep sea fishing in New Jersey for the first time. Not only did we have wonderful weather and seas but the fluke were biting and we were catching! All that is very important to a successful trip but without a professional, friendly and helpful crew no trip could be as enjoyable as this one was. The crew of the Tropical Adventure made our day a real ten and created for me a confirmed and dedicated new fishing partner. We definitely plan on returning and look forward to seeing the Tropical Adventure in Hollywood.

Regards and thanks to the Captain and crew.

Captain Alan,

We wanted to say THANK YOU so much for everything. Our event last night was amazing and all of the guest’s won’t stop talking about how much fun it was. The captain and crew did a great job and we couldn’t have asked for a better trip. We’re gong to be doing this again in the fall so I will be sure to have someone get in touch with you to make it happen. Thanks again! Wish you all the best.

Hi Capt,

I would like to take a moment to thank you for the trip on the 10th.The group had an awesome time. Everybody is still talking about it. We would like to come back in late October, early November, which ever will be better for striper’s.

Thank you again and we will see you again soon.

I want to thank you so much for your skills of yourself and your mates especially (BIG) Mike I think thats his name? Anyway today was an experience and trip I will never forget! I am an avid surf fisherman who fishes on IBSP for stripers.
Today was a change to try it out on your boat. Your guys are well trained and know how to the land the big ones. It was a great trip out with the first hour and a half non stop action on blues with ava’s I was kinda confused due to being out on your boat at night about 10 yrs or so ago, and using bait but it also was at night so wasnt sure how the day trip was going to be. Anyway once you called over the loud speaker and said the other boats were catching drum I was hot on there tail. All I wanted was to catch a monster! Which 10 minutes later we hit them hard. I felt the hit that I never felt before hard and fast! With my Tica 8ft rod Abu Garcia 6500 series ambasador reel and Trilene 10lb test it was a fight to remember. Once Mike and your other mates got the big boy up I couldn’t believe the size of that DRUM.
Well here are some pictures of the fish and I will be proud to say I caught it on your vessle and it was your crew that made it happen. Thank you again and hope to see you soon.
PS: I hope it hit the record book for being caught on ten pound test!!!!!!!!
