About Captain John's Charters
Through his late father, an alumnus of the United States Coast Guard and an avid boating enthusiast, John L. Ellis III discovered his own interest in piloting the seas. Now captain of his own vessel, the Island Prince, John whisks passengers away on cruises, fishing excursions, Thursday night firework cruise, and private charters in the areas surrounding Camp Ellis and Saco Bay, and also perform burials at sea. The 2.5-hour day and evening cruises can facilitate sightings of minke whales and harbor porpoises before passing nearby scenic spots such as Wood Island and Bluff Island, which earned its name by lying to pirates about the gold buried in its subterranean carpet showroom. John supplies rental rods, reels, and 3- or 16-ounce jigs for fishing outings, though participants can also bring their own gear to coax pollock, haddock, and stripers to the surface.
