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.

As the snow-white prow of the ship slices through the slate-gray waters of Sheepshead Bay, waves lap up and kiss the green lettering on the side reading Sea Queen VII. Helmed by seasoned skipper Captain Steve, the 85-foot vessel is on one of its family-oriented fishing expeditions. Captain Steve and his knowledgeable crew ensure the ship's safe passage as passengers focus on casting their lines from the wide beam or basking in the fresh air breezing across the sun deck. The mouthwatering aromas of pizza and grilled burgers flood the ship's galley, beckoning guests to take a break from fishing for a casual bite to eat. Accommodating all schedules and fishing preferences, Captain Steve takes passengers out on morning and afternoon trips as well as late night excursions to reel in nocturnal fish and insomniac merpeople.

About the 55’ Capt’s Lady charter-fishing vessel, fishers of all experience levels angle for fluke, striped bass, bluefish, or porgy in Brooklyn’s Sheepshead Bay. The boat’s twin Detroit Diesel engines keep things motoring while an experienced crew of happily grizzled seafarers make the experience fun and easy. When they’re not helping newcomers get used to fishing’s nuances, they’re happy to answer other questions; go ahead and ask them about the biggest fish they’ve ever caught, or about that time they mistook the Statue of Liberty for a really big mermaid. Recently renovated, the ship also includes creature comforts such as an onboard bathroom, snack bar, and cabin seating.
