  • 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.

  • North Star II Fishing & Charter Boat
    North Star II Fishing & Charter Boat's crew has learned to analyze the weather, tides, and times of day to deduce when fish will come out of hiding. To supplement their instincts, the crew also gleans wisdom from a fish-detecting GPS radar and a local grizzly bear. The company's fiberglass-coated Northstar 2 meets the standards of the USCG's annual inspections, and can accommodate up to 100 passengers on each chartered trip. Extensive seating options and a sound system with Sirius radio make fishing trips comfortable. The company's newest vessel, Nautic Star, fosters a more intimate brand of fish-storytelling on its 40-person capacity boat. Fluke, flounder, bass, and live eels are among the species hauled in from the deep, whether by fishing line or polite invitations to hop onboard.

  • Pontos Taverna
    The Kiriakidis family arrived in the United States carrying more than their luggage. They also packed some true Old World values: a love of good food and family. Much of their lives was spent working in kitchens, and it became something of a dream to one day open their own eatery. It took time and effort, but under the urging of patriarch Theodoros, the octet of siblings came together to found Pontos Taverna. The family now spends their days making the same food they grew up with, chatting boisterously with one another as they stuff marinated beef with saganaki cheese or grill octopus to tender perfection. Theodoros—or Teddy, as many call him—serves as the head chef, whipping up his signature dessert of cinnamon-infused rice pudding that serves as a cinematic end to any meal, like a plate engraved with the kitchen staff’s names in movie-style credits. How good is the family’s culinary work? The New York Times gave it high praise in a review from December 2012, stating “The… word—triumph—could be used, over all, for Pontos, a great place to go for a family-style Greek ‘fix,’ and a budget fix as well.”

  • Hoox It Charters
    If Captains Bill Griswold and Bobby Tambascio didn't have Hoox It Charters, they'd still be out on the water trying to hook the big one. Fortunately for fishermen and hungry grizzly bears, the duo does have a spiffy 46-foot Super Sport yacht for chartering fishing trips. They can search for striped bass, bluefish, and fluke inshore, or venture to the Atlantic for shark, marlin, and swordfish.
