The family operated Captain Gillen is a well known and respected member of the Captree Fishing Fleet, specializing in early morning trips for the dedicated fishing fanatic and family friendly daytime trips for the seasoned fishing family or those coming to fish for the first time.
The Captain Gillen is equipped with the latest electronic and safety equipment and is staffed by experienced, friendly, and helpful Captains and crew. Licensed by the Coast Guard to carry 125 passengers, the courteous and knowledgeable team at the Captain Gillen is ready to take you and your family and friends fishing in the Great South Bay, Fire Island Inlet, or Atlantic Ocean from April to November. We fish in-season for flounder, fluke, striped bass, bluefish, weakfish, sea bass, blackfish and porgies. We offer a wide range of snacks and beverages from our well stocked vending machines, complimentary coffee, clean and separate restrooms, heated cabin, and free rods, reels, bait, and fish cleaning, to make your trip all the more enjoyable.
The Captain Gillen is located on the right side of the dock and is easily spotted by it’s red and gold trim, docked next to our sister charter boat, the Captree Star III. The Gillen family has been involved in fishing at Captree State Park since 1955 and the Captain Gillen continues the family tradition of Captree fishing at it’s best.
Mom and Dad, you will always be with us.
