Welcome to SalFin Charters. We provide on the water charters of all kinds for fisherman, sightseers, families and friends. Bring your kids, your friends or your customers for a great day on the waters of the Merrimack River, Plum Island Sound and Gulf of Maine. Enjoy a day of fishing, whale watching or sightseeing on board our safe and reliable vessel.

Charters depart daily from the Newburyport Boat Basin at 346 Merrimac Street in Newburyport, Massachusetts. We typically cover the waters of the Merrimack River, Plum Island Sound and Gulf of Maine. These waters are full of sea life and scenic beauty and provide some of the most productive fishing in the Northeast. For directions, please see our “Contact Us” page or give us a call. Our dock is easily accessible from U.S. routes 1, 95 or 495.
