The homeport is in Menemsha, right on the banks of the Menemsha channel overlooking beautiful West Basin, Menemsha and Quitsa Ponds.
Located at the most convenient place, it's only a 5 to 10 minute ride to the best fishing on Martha's Vineyard - we are surrounded by deep waters, numerous drop-offs and countless fishing holes. Whether it's Gay Head, the North Shore, the Elizabeth Islands, from Cuttyhunk to Nomans, or Squibnoket... even to the canyons, I'm in the Heart of Striped Bass Heaven & right next door to the Offshore Big Game Fish Paradise."
Aside from the best fishing you can get, you can enjoy the unbelievable vistas of the west end of the Vineyard, from the channel and the quaint fishing village of Menemsha, to the breathtaking, rugged shoreline and cliffs, to the crystal clear water of the Vineyard Sound, not to mention some of the best sunsets on the planet!!
Upon arriving back at the dock when the charter is over, Capt. Vanderhoop fillets and packages your catch and bids you farewell. But your day doesn't have to end there. Buddy's dock is conveniently located near the heart of "downtown" Menemsha, where you can get a bite to eat at the Galley restaurant or take a stroll through the local shops.
