Health & Safety

Sport Fishing can be a vigorous activity. Like all athletic and physical activities, a moderate level of health and fitness is necessary. Please inform the Captain prior to the trip if any persons in your fishing party have any serious health issues. Fishing trips can be tailored to people with health issues or disabilities with prior notice. Otherwise, the trip will be a ‘Full-On’ attempt to help you catch your Trophy Fish!

While Fishing is always fun, it is also a serious pursuit. You could miss the fish of a lifetime. The following Rules are in place to ensure that your fishing trip is safe and pleasurable:

  • ZERO Tolerance for illegal drugs. Anyone possessing or intending to use illegal drugs on the MAC-ATAC will be returned to port immediately and will be subject to immediate arrest. (No Exceptions). Recreational Marijuana or Marijuana provided by way of a Medical Card is NEVER allowed on the MAC-ATAC. Although the Commonwealth of Massachusetts has approved this, the MAC-ATAC, and ALL Charter Vessels, function under the authority of the United States Coast Guard. Federal Law does not allow for the possession or use of Marijuana on board any vessels.
  • NO FIREARMS will be allowed on board, unless in the possession of a Law Enforcement Officer.
  • NO HARD ALCOHOL. A small amount of Beer or Wine are OK although they must only be used in moderation. If a customer shows up at the dock intoxicated, that person will not be allowed to go on the charter — period… no exceptions.

All customers are responsible for the property of MAC-ATAC Sportfishing.

Cancellations & No Shows


$250 deposit required for all reservations. Cancellations must be made 1 week prior to the schedule trip for a full refund.

Trip times vary with tide conditions and species of fish targeted, please check with me for available dates and times.

For everyone’s safety the Captain reserves the right to make last minute changes or cancellations due to inclement weather conditions. In the case of cancellations, you may rearrange another trip or if another trip is not possible, your deposit will be refunded. If you have an evening trip scheduled that is cancelled due to weather, plan to fish the following morning.

No Shows

If you do not show up for your charter without calling or communicating in some accepted manner, you will lose your deposit and the Captain will be very unhappy with you :).

If you do not show up with the group size that you requested and booked, you will be required to pay for the original group size or a minimum of at least 3 persons per cost.

Fish Cleaning

A cleaning station is available for your use or your Captain can clean your catch for you. This service is Free and included in the charter rate. Customers need to bring bags for their fish and a cooler to bring them home. If there is left over ice on the boat, the Captain may offer a small amount of ice to keep your fish cold.

Tipping: 10% or an amount you feel is correct for the exemplary service and detailed attention you received.
