Keeping the Great Lakes, Great, since 1999.

What began as "Fishing with Norm", soon blossomed into a business of successful fishing outings.  From Norm and Jason, to Greg and Jeff, Island Charters has been the premier fishing charter of the Eastern U.P.

Captain Jason and Captain Greg are both fully licensed by the US Coast Guard.

The wonderful thing about growing up in the outdoors is the appreciation you learn to have that most people may never understand.

From a delicious meal you've provided for others, to an experience some people just dream about, being out with nature is more than just hunting and fishing, being outside is about an emotional connection to the land and water.  We just love taking people outside with us.

Our passion starts from our Great Grandfathers, to our Grandfathers, and on down the line.  If it wasn't for a Grandpa's rifle, we may have never gotten the buck of a lifetime.  If it wasn't for our Great Grandpa's love for northern Michigan, we may have never had the opportunity to take you out on a charter.

Norm and Jason began a tradition of chartering people around the Eastern U.P.  We at Island Charters plan on continuing that tradition well beyond our years.  As we’ve said, being outdoors is more than catching a fish, we want to carry on the emotional connections you share with the great outdoors.

Friends and family are always welcome with us up north, and we hope to bring you and yours out for a lifetime of memories.  Time is your most important asset, so spend it outdoors.
