Unlike the boats of old, SunPlugged does not chug, it does not whirr, and it does not spout steam. Drawing upon modern technology, this electric boat is powered by the sun using four 200-watt solar panels. It carries up to six passengers out into the waters of Fort Point Channel for daytime or sunset tours, while leaving behind no waste products to harm the environment. Kids can enjoy the silent ride on sponge-fishing expeditions, where they cast a lure that turns into a sponge as it drifts in the water and makes friends with mermaids who haven't bathed in years.

A day with Fishaholiks isn't your typical fishing trip. Things start early, with groups learning to cast nets, forage for bait, and paddle their kayaks. The latter—along with bikes—allow the guides and their clients to access some of the best urban fishing destinations in the Boston area. Guides help men and women fish for freshwater species such as northern pike, as well as saltwater species such as striped bass. The use of kayaks also offers an eco-friendly alternative to fishing from motorized boats.
Five Things to Know About C.J. Victoria Fishing Charters
Departing from Winthrop Harbor or downtown Boston, the C.J. Victoria escorts fishers out to the local waters for a day of tracking down and catching striped bass, flounder, tuna, or cod. Before you step aboard, here are a few things you’ll want to know:
You can charter the boat for up to a full day. There are also half-day and three-quarters trips available.
All fishing equipment is provided. This includes rods, reels, bait, and an ice bath for caught fish. The crew can also fillet and package fish to make taking them home easy. (But bring your own lunch and snacks, drinks, appropriate weather wear, and a cooler for your catches.)
Fish can’t hide. With features such as a fish finder and 4KV radar, Captain Rob Savino, an angler of more than 25 years, can easily locate where fish are likely biting.
A good catch is important, basic amenities are nice too. The boat is equipped with an AM/FM stereo that plays CDs, hot and cold water, and a bathroom.
Got a big group? Though the C.J. Victoria holds only six passengers, if you have a larger party, other boats can be added.
Kids will like the flounder fishing. It’s a shorter trip, and the fish are caught not too far from shore, amid the Boston Harbor Islands, so they’ll have a lot to look at as well.
