Captain Lou Fleet

Captain Lou Fleet has been the top name in the fishing and the party charter boat business since 1948. We are conveniently located in Central Nassau County and are just a half hour or less from New York City and eastern Long Island on the famous Nautical Mile.

We specialize in half day fluke fishing trips aboard the Starstream VIII daily from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. throughout the summer months when fluke is in season. Blackfish fishing trips are available in October and November. We also have sea bass and porgy trips available, as well as offshore and inshore wreck trips for cod, ling, porgies, and jumbo sea bass in the late fall and winter months.

We also provide private fishing charters, corporate outings, school field trips, summer camp fishing charters and more.

Whale Watching Tour

What a great experience!! It was taking quite some time to see anything so we were starting to get discouraged but once we saw it, the wait was worth it. Definitely going to come back for the seal watching tour!

Seabass and Porgy Fishing experience

I go on this boat a couple of times a year to do mostly sea bass and porgy fishing. The mates are always nice and respectful and rig up your lines and clean out your fish. They really pay attention. The captains are pretty good too.

Solid, long standing business

My dad used to take me on this boat as a kid many years ago. I have returned a few times throughout my life, most recently this July. The boat was well staffed and the crew was helpful. I've been on other charters that charge for the filleting, but not this one.

Mother's Day Brunch

Free of traffic, frustrated servers and being pushed out the door...this was a rest-filled family-centered meal. It was an oasis at sea! We fully expected a small buffet and informal meal. Much to our surprise, the food itself was delicious and plentiful.

Fun time!

My wife and I went on the 2018 Spring Dinner Cruise. The weather held up and we had a great time. Special shout out to the Captain, Cindy, Amy, Jay, and Colin the DJ and the rest of the crew for making our early Anniversary celebration memorable.
