The John Jack is a US Coast Guard–certified, 50-foot titan of the sea, operated by a friendly crew and knowledgeable captain. Two Caterpillar engines––each producing 800 horsepower––propel the red and white ship through the waves, staving off currents as passengers embark on chartered fishing and diving trips around the Point Pleasant Beach area. It can reach speeds of up to 25 knots and travel up to 350 miles between fuel stops, so it’s not uncommon to see the vessel docked in ports at Montauk, Cape May, Virginia, or Cape Hatteras. The interior is air conditioned, and houses a refrigerator, microwave, icemaker, and power outlets. Outside, quartz halogen lights illuminate the deck, creating a night atmosphere that still provides enough light for fishing, diving, or reading Magic 8-Ball responses.

With Captain Jim O'Grady at the helm, the 78-foot Cock Robin carries groups of bait-brandishing passengers along on the Atlantic. Equipped with two turbocharged engines and mermaid-detecting sonar, the boat—which docks behind Spike's Seafood Restaurant—springs off the New Jersey coast in search of striped bass and bluefish every day. While striped bass fishing is the Cock Robin's specialty, bluefish hauls are the most common, and the summer and early autumn months usually bring an abundance of fluke and sea bass toward Jersey waters.

At Surf & Turf 35 and Fish Market, meat and seafood are not the only culinary worlds brought under one roof. The spot also joins together sit-down dining with a marketplace teeming with fresh meat and seafood. For those looking for a dining experience, Surf & Turf 35's chefs craft classic dishes such as oysters on the half shell; steamed, broiled, or stuffed lobster; and Italian-style beef roast. They also put their own spin on the surf-and-turf concept with steak and shrimp scampi, chicken-and-shrimp francese, and grilled pork and shrimp. And since the dining room is BYOB, guests can bring the bottle of wine or jug of vintage Crystal Pepsi of their choice to enjoy with their meal.
