The chartered trips, which last five hours, cruise Jamaica Bay for flounder in a yacht stocked with complimentary coffee for morning trips. Snacks and soft drinks are available for purchase for a nominal fee. At least two trips run daily—one starts at 7 a.m. and the other at 1 p.m., with occasional evening cruises during warm weather—and all necessary equipment can be rented for a small fee. Passengers should arrive an hour before boarding. After the trip, the crew cleans and bags any catches for guests.

Donna G, LLC
More than 50 years ago, Donna G was born at Virginia’s Price boatyard. Since then, she has sailed from Point Pleasant, New Jersery; Hyannis Port, Massachusetts; and other famed locales. Lately, however, she has made her home in Sheepshead Bay.
While her biography reads like that of a lifelong mariner, Donna G is actually a classic, US Coast Guard–certified party boat. Captain Dominick of Donna G, LLC recently restored to the boat to a yacht-like finish with passion and unwavering attention to detail and outfitted her with cutting-edge fish-finding electronics. Nowadays, Captain Dominick showcases his handiwork—as well as his more than 50 years of boating experience and care for his clients—on chartered fishing trips, which trawl New York’s waters for flounder and other catches.
