License Extended for Plum Island Whale Watch Boat

Newburyport News: The business that hosts visitors on whale-watching cruises brings close to 10,000 to the city each summer, and last night (January 7) the Waterfront Trust voted to extend the license for such activity to the owners of Captain’s Lady III of Plum Island.

The 149-seat craft is run by the Charos family, including father George, and sons Chris and Ryan. Their company operates under the names of Captain’s Fishing Parties and Cruise Newburyport.
