VA Chesapeake Bay Fishing Charters & Sightseeing Boat Tours

Welcome to award winning York River Charters! Our Chesapeake Bay fishing charter boat operates from Smith’s Point on Virginia’s Northern Neck to Lynnhaven Inlet in Virginia Beach. We run our charters from the closest Chesapeake Bay port to where the fish are biting. This gives our customers more time catching fish and less time “boat riding”!


VA’s Best Charters!

Experience all that our Chesapeake Bay waters have to offer from the well equipped Catchin’ Up II. She’s a pilot house sport fishing boat with state-of-the-art electronics. Catchin’ Up II gives Captain Alan the ability to easily guide your party into a secluded creek or tranquil flat, as well as safely dash you out into the deeper waters of the Chesapeake Bay!

Chesapeake Bay Saltwater Sport Fishing


The charter boat Catchin’ Up II presents our guests the opportunity to have a truly personalized experience on the Chesapeake Bay. For you, this may mean tailoring a fishing charter trip combining some bottom fishing for croaker, spot or flounder with an equal amount of time spent live baiting for mighty cobia and 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 flats. For others it may mean an intimate sunset cruise topped off by a river view dining experience in Yorktown.

Chesapeake Bay Sightseeing

Regardless of the Chesapeake Bay charter trip you choose, your Captain’s unique prospective and knowledge of the region are sure to give you reason to join us many times in the future and become yet another lifelong Bay friend. York River Charters‘ goal is to provide our guests the prospect of “having it their way” for a change. So come on down, kick off your Top-Siders and let us show you, your loved ones and close friends what fishing on the Chesapeake is really all about!

We offer various discount packages that bundle your charter with lodging, dining, and other outdoor recreation!
