Spring Programs & Events
Home to the largest public fishing fleet on Long Island, Captree State Park is a fishing haven and a picnicker's delight, located on the eastern tip of Jones Island at the end of the Ocean Parkway. Open and charter boats are available for saltwater fishing. No license or equipment is necessary as the boat staff provides everything you'll need for a day on the Great South Bay or the Atlantic Ocean. Information on the fishing fleet is available at http://captreefleet.com/
The fleet also offers sightseeing excursions and scuba diving trips. There are two large fishing piers available for those who want to catch a few crabs or fish from a pier.
A full service restaurant operates in the park along with a more casual refreshment stand serving the best chili dogs anywhere. A picnic area at The Overlook offers a beautiful view of Fire Island and the Fire Island Lighthouse while boats of a variety of sizes pass through the Fire Island Inlet just below. A retail bait and tackle shop offers fishing gear and operates the fuel pumps at the boat basin. A boat launch is available for boats larger than 14' providing direct access to the State Boat Channel.
