    Lot's of good choices out there, but I always found the big Jamaica and Voyager to be top notch boats that will go the extra distance needed to catch fish. I've been on several Jamaica trips were they sailed 140miles to put us on the meat. September, October and November are the best months for party boat tuna fishing. Any 6/0 reel with 80lb line should be sufficient to get you started, All of these boats have decent rental tackle if you don't have your own

    If your looking to go before the Fall, look into the open boats too. "Sometimes" you can jump on a 6pk trip for the same money, or real close to it.

    When you fish with a business such as Shore Catch for example, you are not only fishing, but learning. People like Tom & Gene are among the best at what they do and IMO, this is the way to go. These captains are loaded with knowledge, its more of a personal touch and until you get into the Fall, your not going to find many boats sailing for them. Its always good to learn while your catching.

    If you had to go, there are several good boats mentioned already. I would fish on all of them mentioned above. Gambler, Jamaica, Voyager .......any of them. Just dont think you will see them sailing for a few months yet.

    Default We are doing open boat tune trips out of Cape May right now

    Epic Yellowfin tuna bite today with some boats I know getting up to 25 Yellowfin bites today on day troll trips. Just a red hot tuna bite and there is no need to wait until the fall to do a overnight trip on a head boat out of North Jersey with a boat full of anglers. It will cost you a little more but the comfort and being able to fish with a max 6 anglers might just be worth the extra money as we get lots of customers that chose fishing with us over a party boat. There is really is nothing even close if you can afford fishing on a top end 6 pack boat when running 60-90 miles offshore but you do have various options to chose from which is all good.

    I'd go on an open boat charter if you've never gone tuna fishing. It doesn't cost much more and you'll love it compared to party boat tuna fishing.
    For those who talk of freedom and rights remember those who make sure you have them.

    done these 2, plus many many overnight charters. if you want a bunk and fishing in comfort, the voyager is my fav pb for overnight tuna. too many 6 packs to ....

    sometimes 6 packs will be competitive (price wise) and if so, its better to have the opportunity to troll during the day time (if doing a 2 day trip), and besides, they are usually faster.

    good luck

    Jersey Coast & Capt's John and Diana got it...a six pack is a lot less hectic and you'll learn--how to and with what...the PB's are good, also, but as stated, start tuna trips in Sept. ...they all have bunks, food and rental gear and only take from 24-30 +/- anglers so on a 90-120' fishing platform, there's plenty of room and on a sport fisher with 6 anglers, as well...
    You could try a 6pack soon, and later, a PB.....just an idea

    Thank you to all who responded to my question thanks a lot. I have been wanting to do a six pack but the guys on my end be b!!!!!itting if you no what I mean. So that's why I decided to try a party boat because I can't get 6 guys together to save my life.
