Charter Boat Luau

Capt. John Shakliks Orleans, MA Incorporated Licensed Insured

There are so many things to do in Cape Cod, Massachusetts. Miles of coastline and some of the richest fishing grounds in the Atlantic, make it the perfect destination for your next Cape Cod fishing charter.  Captain John Shakliks and his crew have been proudly serving anglers in Cape Cod Bay since 1969.  They are a family friendly charter and look forward to welcoming you and your group on board for an action-packed fishing charter on Cape Cod.

Captain John has been fishing on Cape Cod Bay since he was 14 years old.  He started out as the mate on his father’s boat.  That tradition that has been passed on to his son, Captain Mark, who started out as the mate on Captain John’s boat.  Captains John and Mark enjoy sharing their vast knowledge with anglers of all ages and skill levels.

The Charter Boat Luau is a 35ft Sportfisherman powered by a 420hp engine.  She comes equipped with all the latest navigation tech and USCG required safety gear to ensure you get to the fish quickly and safely.  There is ample room on deck for up to six anglers to fish and a spacious cabin, with restroom, for you to relax.

Offering full and half day trips, Captain John and the charter boat Luau sail out of Rock Harbor which is a tidal harbor.  This means that they have to sail around the schedule of the tides.  Once the boat leaves the harbor it cannot get back in until the tide is in.  This also means that if you are late the boat cannot get out, “the tide waits for no man”, so please be prompt 

Captain John and his crew will provide your rods, reels, tackle and bait.  For an enjoyable day on the water, Captain John recommends sunscreen, sunglasses, a hat, weather appropriate clothing, and don’t forget your camera to capture photos of your catch of the day.  Feel free to bring a small cooler with your favorite snacks and drinks (especially plenty of water) to enjoy during your trip.  While out on your Cape Cod fishing adventure you will be targeting Striped Bass, Black Sea Bass, Bluefish, Flounder and even Sharks.  You can keep your catch, up to state mandated limits, and the crew will clean and fillet it for you.

Join Captain John and his crew for your next Cape Cod fishing charter.  They know where the fish are – let them show you!
