Welcome aboard Canyon Lady II with Capt. Dave P and join my many customers who have had the “Best trips of their Life”. I offer full-day charters and open boat trips for up to 6 anglers. Every trip is customized to take advantage of what’s running, where they’re biting, and how you want to catch them. Having a great day on the water is what I’m about.

Whether you’re looking for a close-to-shore fun trip with family, friends, or business associates, or an offshore adventure for Tuna and Tile fishing, I’ve got you covered. Book with the captain who has 45+ years of experience fishing off the south shore of Long Island.
