Passengers board one of Celtic Quest Fishing's two group boats, which can hold up to 100 anglers at a time. Crew members supply all the necessary rods, bait, and tackle, and they can teach novices the basics of fishing. Once ready, passengers cast lines and hook seasonal fish such as fluke or porgies. After posing for photos, they hand off fish to the crew, who promptly filet the catch. Customers should bring along a cooler to store their fish. Check the current schedule here. This Groupon is valid for any four-hour trip. View the FAQ here.
Celtic Quest Fishing
The man's smile stretches almost as wide as the giant striped bass in his right hand. A novice fisherman, he's snagged his very first catch aboard one of Celtic Quest Fishing's group boats. A crew member snaps a photograph of the triumphant moment. Although it depicts only a moment in time, that photo recounts a much larger story. The man can point to it when he tells friends how he grabbed hold of rod and reel, cast a line, and wrestled with a resilient foe—ultimately pulling the fish up onto the dock.
This sort of experience happens frequently aboard Celtic Quest Fishing's group-fishing boats, which can carry 70–100 people at a time. The company, founded by Port Jefferson native Captain Des O’Sullivan, maintains two of the giant vessels. They carry groups out in search of black fish, fluke, porgies, or any other species Poseidon sends out to defend his honor. Regardless of the targeted catch, Celtic Quest Fishing's expert crew members supply all necessary gear, and they happily teach newbies fishing basics.
