Fish With Two Pros!

Captain Joseph R. Aiello and Captain Coral Rose Aiello are a father daughter team. Joe has been fishing off the waters of New England (especially off the coast of Newport) for 43 years, both as a commercial fisherman and private charter captain. Captain Coral started as a mate at 14 and now has more than a decade of experience helping newcomers and veterans hook the big ones! They provide fishing trips of a lifetime, that families, friends, and business partners will never forget. Established in 1995, Sara Star Charters is the leader in the industry for the best fishing along Rhode Island’s spectacular coastline.  2022 marks the 27th season in Sara Star Charters’ history.

Captain Joe and Captain Coral believe the adventure is “not all about the fishing” as they not only strive to provide each group with the catch of the day, but also tailor the trips to meet the unique needs of each of their clients. From poles and bait, complimentary snacks and beverages, to fileting and icing your catch, all that is expected of the guests of Sara Star is to relax and do the reeling.

Now you can name the huge stripers you catch! For conservation purposes, we tag and release stripers over 35 inches. We’ve partnered with Grays Fish Tag Research, allowing you to tag and name your fish and receive updates about it! An exciting new way to extend your fun day on the water!

The boat is also always suited to each occasion or celebration with your taste of music from Pandora, or your own streaming service, played on our stereo.
