Charter Boat and Guides

Dear Licensed Captain or Guide,

The Maryland Charter Boat Industry has a long tradition of connecting Marylanders and our State's visitors with fishing, the Chesapeake Bay and our other waterways. As stewards of this great tradition, we at the Maryland Department of Natural Resources (DNR) along with our partners at the Maryland Office of Tourism are working to better connect potential anglers with you, the charter boat captain or fishing guide. You provide a valuable service to anglers who may not own their own boat or are looking for a guided fishing trip. Both DNR and the Office of Tourism recognize the value you and your industry have on the economy.

To better connect you with potential customers, DNR has developed a webpage which will give users a map listing charter boat/guide options. Users can click on a location and view your contact information. This will give anglers a centralized location to plan out their day trips or fishing vacations.

This offer to post your business information is completely voluntary to you. If you would like to participate and have your charter boat/guide services on the website, please complete the below application for the Charter/Guide Website Listing. If you prefer to mail or fax your application, you may open and save, complete and return a paper version to Steve Vilnit, MDDNR Fisheries, 580 Taylor Ave B-2, Annapolis, MD 21401 or fax to 410-260-8279. We will periodically add new captains and guides as information is submitted. Steve's email is or call 410-260-2406.

Thank you.
