With included rods and bait, guests cast lines and wrestle fish into a spacious luxury catamaran as it sails through Sheepshead Bay
As the morning or afternoon sun sparkles across the waters of Sheepshead Bay, Captain Joe Lind takes a deep breath of salty air and fires up the engines of his luxury catamaran, the Golden Sunshine. Though Lind's vessel can carry up to 350 passengers to private events on Rockaway Beach and the Jersey Coast, its spacious decks and cabins play host to smaller groups on fishing charters. During these trips, the Golden Sunshine's crew supplies prospective anglers with all of the equipment, tackle, and knowledge they need to reel in a hearty catch of fluke, which they promptly filet to ensure freshness. When they aren't scanning the azure waters for signs of fluke or Russian submarines, the crew leads tours to view fireworks celebrations and offers private charters on select evenings.
