THE PRISTINE PROTECTED WATERS of Cape Cod Bay offer some of the best fishing in the world and is one of the most popular hot spots for recreational saltwater fishing.



DEPARTING TWICE DAILY, the COLUMBIA seeks mostly striped bass and bluefish. We provide all the necessary tackle, and you keep your catch!



THE COLUMBIA is a 42 foot wooden sportfishing vessel with a single diesel engine and equipped with all of the latest state-of the-art electronic equipment. We sail complete with all measures of safety equipment on board including, adult life jackets, first aid kit, and fire extinguishers. The Captain is CPR and First Aid certified.



Columbia was recently featured in the magazine Soundings.  To read the complete story click here.
