We are facing tough times and there’s no doubt the COVID-19 health crisis is having a far-reaching impact on the world, including right here in Rhode Island. As a result, Pamela May Charters would like to offer its customers a reduced rate for 3-hour, 6-hour and sightseeing charters. See our discounted pricing below.

Departure times

Early bird gets the worm aboard Pamela May. Our early morning 5am departures (which are highly recommended) are common, but sunrise times vary throughout our fishing season so exact start times will differ. Upon booking a charter we will contact you to provide departure time, pick up location and any additional details for your fishing adventure.

What to bring

  • We recommend bringing sun block, warm/waterproof clothing, motion sickness prevention products, food and beverages.

  • We will provide fishing rods, bait, and terminal tackle.

  • Life vests are provided on all vessels. Children 13 and under must provided their own life vests.

Please be sure to also read our COVID-19 fishing charter guidelines.

In the best interests of safety and for adherence to insurance regulations, Pamela May prohibits the consumption or transport of alcoholic beverages on all charters. Do not ask for exceptions to this rule.

Our guests are exempt from obtaining a state salt water fishing license since we are a registered charter/party boat with the State of Rhode Island.

Deposits and cancellations

A 50% deposit is required to secure your booking which can be made via credit card or Venmo. On the day of the charter we can only settle remaining balances by cash or Venmo. No credit cards or personal checks will be accepted. A 20% gratuity is appreciated.

For cancellations, please call or email Pamela May Charters. Deposits will be refunded if cancellation is made 14 days prior to the booking date. Pamela May Charters has the right to cancel any trip due to weather. Guests have the option of rescheduling or receiving a full refund should a cancellation occur due to inclement weather.

Where we fish


Pamela May is based in Narragansett, Rhode Island. Our small size gives us a big advantage - we are mobile, so we can go to where the fish are. Locations are based on fishing and weather conditions to give you the best chance to catch a fish of a lifetime. We leave from Galilee or Pier 5 in Narragansett, but can mobilize to South Shore, and reefs off Newport, or into Narragansett Bay to get you on the fish!
