My cousin and I had a blast with Captain John. He's friendly, down to earth, and he sports a good sense of humor. And, most importantly, he knows where the fish are. We hooked one on the first cast! I hadn't fished in years, and I did not know what to expect. Suffice to say, John will be getting a call from us the next time we visit Portland.

Book Mary May Charters and you will not be disappointed. Want to catch fish, want to see seals, want to understand the history of lobsters and Maine , then Capt John and Mary May charters is your guide !!!! You will have an absolute blast on his boat, my family and I could not stop laughing. My youngest son caught his first striper with Capt John, my oldest son got his first experience tagging lobsters. Couldn't ask for a more accommodating and gracious tour guide. Thank you Capt John for being a part of my family's adventure

We took a Mary May Charters fishing trip last August (2021). The entire experience was excellent! We caught a good number of striped bass during our trip and our son in law and two grandchildren on the trip thoroughly enjoyed themselves! Captain John was amazing! Highly skilled, humorous and dedicated to making our trip memorable! The boat was perfect! Lots of room, very stable and well appointed! Highly recommend this charter company! We'll be back on board again in the summer of 2022!

Captain John is the man! My wife and I went out with Mary May Charters with my in-laws. From the scenery to the fishing, it was amazing.

Captain John was an absolute stud and so nice and friendly. We caught a ton of mackerel and used those to then fish for striped bass. We nailed the bass and were able to take one home. Captain John filleted it for us and some mackerel.

He also let us check his lobster traps where we got 2 keepers. Went home after and cooked up a seafood feast! Perfect way to top off the day. Would highly recommend Mary May to anyone. We can't wait to go again.
