Meet the captains
Captain Caroline Scotti grew up spending every summer on Cape Cod, in Harwich Port. Ever since she can remember she was spending almost every summer day out on the water with her father and became completely addicted to fishing, lobstering and everything boating. From a young age she knew she would be making a life out of doing what she loved, fishing. Originally from Connecticut, Caroline moved up to Cape Cod full time in 2018 to pursue her dream of becoming a fisherman.
At the age of 20 Caroline received her USCG 100 Ton Masters License from The Chapman School of Seamanship and became a certified captain and commercial tuna fisherman. Also by working in a Chatham tackle shop, Caroline has gained immense knowledge over the years of Cape Cod's unique fishery and is more than willing to share her knowledge with each and every one of her charters.
Caroline believes that there is nothing more incredible than the waters of Cape Cod. The unmatched fishing, beautiful scenery and incredible whale shows can not be experienced anywhere else. Each trip will surely become a memory to last a lifetime and Caroline can not wait to share the Cape Cod fishing experience with you!
Captain Ben Hull is a Cape Cod native, born and raised in Orleans. Growing up near the water has given him a lifelong experience of the waters of Cape Cod. Ben showed a lot of passion for fishing starting at a young age. His boating life started on a small sixteen foot skiff and he has run everything up to a large sportfish since then.
As far as local knowledge of the waters and the fishing of Cape Cod Ben is hard to beat. He began working at a tackle shop at the age of 14 and has worked in one since, giving him exposure to all the latest and best tackle, as well as an unfiltered source of information from other fisherman. This working relationship of other fisherman has given Ben a line of local knowledge that is helpful, especially when the bite is tough.
While working at a tackle shop is fun, Ben decided after high school to further his life on the water and chose to attend Massachusetts Maritime Academy, where he graduated their marine engineering program in 2020. Along the way, Ben obtained his USCG 50TON Masters license as well as his 3rd assistant engineer unlimited horsepower license.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT JAX CHARTERS
"What is there not to say about Jax Chartes. I planned for a fishing trip as a fathers day gift and what I got was an awesome experience. Not only did we fish, but we landed a great Tuna. Capt Caroline and Capt Ben did an above and beyond trip. Well prepared and professional, yet layed back and comfortable. I would book over and over with these guys. Thanks for such a great a day"
"Captain Ben And Captain Caroline are flawless experts out on the water! With the power of local knowledge, and the added bonus of both of them working in a tackle shop, they will not only know exactly where the fish are, but what tackle to use to catch any fish you dream of. An extremely professional approach to fishing, these guys will put nothing but a smile on your face. As captain Ben likes to say, the Grady whites run on smiles per gallon. I will be back multiple times and tell everyone I know about these guys. Thank you Ben and Caroline for an absolutely outstanding day on the water."
"This was my first time ever salt water fishing and what a fantastic day I had with Ben and Caroline. The weather was perfect, boat ride so comfortable and the fish were everywhere! Ben and Caroline were very knowledgeable and patient while showing me how to fish for stripers. I would highly recommend them, as this experience is one I will never forget."
