York River Charters was voted "Best Fishing in Eastern VA" for the third consecutive year! Most of our saltwater fishing charters originate on the scenic York River in Virginia, a major tributary of the Chesapeake Bay. As the Bay is known for it's beauty and it's bounty, we offer guests and residents saltwater sport fishing charters, as well as sightseeing tours and pleasure cruises. We are the only charter fishing boat contracted to dock at beautiful Riverwalk Landing on the historic Yorktown, Virginia waterfront. This makes us the fishing charter located most near Williamsburg, VA! In addition, we are the only fishing charter docking in York River Yacht Haven at Gloucester Point, VA. This provides our guests access to departure points on both sides of the river! If you would prefer an intimate, personalized adventure on our coastal waters for your family or group versus being lumped with 30 other people you don't know, we invite you to take advantage of our private charters.

Experience all that the Virginia Chesapeake Bay has to offer from the well equipped Catchin' Up II. She's a 25 foot pilot house sport fishing boat with state-of-the-art electronics that gives your host, Captain Alan, the ability to easily guide your party into a secluded saltwater creek or tranquil flat, as well as safely dash you out into the Chesapeake's deeper waters! The boat offers a roomy open cockpit area for fighting fish, as well as an extended hardtop for recovering in the shade.

The charter boat Catchin' Up II presents our guests the opportunity to have a truly customizable trip on the Chesapeake Bay of VA. For you, this may mean tailoring a saltwater fishing charter combining some bottom fishing for croaker, spot or flounder with an equal amount of time spent sport fishing by live baiting for mighty cobia or shark, or trolling for trophy striped bass (stripers), bluefish or Spanish mackerel. Some folks enjoy fishing for speckled trout and red drum (redfish) on light tackle along the grass bottomed shoreline flats or crabbing for Virginia Chesapeake Bay Blue Crab. Others may want to take one of our intimate sunset cruises topped off by a waterfront dining experience in Yorktown or Gloucester Point.
