About Us

ABOUT US

Welcome to Proud Mary Charters.  We started over 32 years ago.  Mary and George traveled to Chincoteague for a weekend camping trip and fell in love with the Island.  We purchased our summer home in 1981 and the first Proud Mary was purchased in 1984.  Captain George was able to take summers off and began his career as a Charter Boat Captain.


Around 2003, we retired and moved to Chincoteague full time.


Captain Mary was raised in Annapolis, Maryland and has loved boating and being on the water her entire life.  After working in the Insurance Industry for 30 years, it was time for Island life.


After soaking up the sun and being left at the dock, she decided to get her own boat.  She has been seen pulling her crab traps in Tom's Cove and playing on the Proud Mary Too and now wants to share the experience with you.  Captain Mary is in her 6th season and specializes in Custom Cruises.  Come by slip 47 and look for the blue and white skiff with a custom sun top.


THE PROUD MARY is a 24 foot BayRider skiff with plenty of room for six anglers. Take a fishing charter  with all bait and tackle  included.  Just bring your snacks and beverages.  Don't forget your sun screen, cameras and sun glasses.  With no more than six passengers, sit back and enjoy your trip.  The Proud Mary offers two hour and four hour trips.  HEAD DOWN TO SLIP 48 TO CHAT, BOOK YOUR TRIP OR GIVE US A CALL.  


THE PROUD MARY TOO, is a 24 foot Carolina Skiff with a 140 Suzuki.  She enables Capt Mary to take Guest on CUSTOM TOURS on our beautiful waters that surround the Island.  Call me and I will help you create an experience made just for you.  We can go on a quest to find wild ponies and see dolphins in their natural habitat.  How about pulling crab traps and bring home your catch?  Private picnics on a sandbar and let your *Dog run in the sand and surf.


*Well behaved Dogs welcome on Prearranged trips
