Rooster Fishing Charters has been in operation for almost 10 years.  We run boats out of both Old Harbor and New Harbor.  This year Capt. Eric Gustafson and Capt. Andrew Dodwell will be running Charter Boat Rooster and Open Party/Head Boat Bantam.

We are proud to announce the newest addition to our fleet- Bantam.  Bantam is a 49' Sportfish and will be Block Island's only open party boat holding up to 34 passengers. We will be holding daily trips- walk-ons welcome.

Custom trips for private parties are available by reservation only. This spacious boat is ideal for special events, wedding parties, family reunions, employee parties, anniversaries & birthday parties.  Catering is available.

Capt. Eric & Capt. Andy have been featured on several sport-fishing TV shows and magazines including On the Water magazine.  They have been fishing together for over a decade and are excited for a great summer season 2012.
