Meet Captian Joe
Captain Joseph Rl. Aiello was born and bred into a life of fishing and knows the ins and outs of the waters like no one else. He is fully licensed as a Coast Guard accredited captain in the 100 Ton Masters Class, with a lifetime of experience equal to no other. He is also certified by the American Red Cross in First Aid and CPR.
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. He began his working life on the water in 1976 trap fishing. Since then he has worked on: in-shore and off-shore lobster boats, as a codfisherman, and as a charter captain. With a unique and professional approach, he enjoys bringing the thrill and excitement of inshore and offshore fishing to as many newcomers and seasoned veterans alike. Working with his daughter Coral is a dream come true for him and he fully admits he “doesn’t like to leave the dock without her.”
Joe and Sara Star Charters have been featured in multiple magazines and publications. A few include: “Men’s Journal” and “On The Water” magazines, as well as the 1998 Sperry Top Sider calendar, and 2000 Men’s Journal Magazine. RI Monthly Magazine has featured Sara Star Charters on three separate occasions in 2004, 2006, and most recently in February 2016 as one of the top Newport summer destinations.
