    A Message from the Captain: Hi! I’m captain, Dave Petit, owner and operator of Three D’s Sport Fishing Charters. I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to our website and to tell you a little bit about myself. I have spent the better part of 30 years fishing the inshore and offshore waters of New England, as well as the warmer waters of Florida, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. I spent 4 years in the United States Coast Guard, which allowed me to fine tune my navigation, seamanship and onboard safety skills that are required to be a good captain. Therefore with safety and professionalism at the top of my list, you might say I run a tight ship. While in the Coast Guard I also got the opportunity to run larger boats, which enabled me to obtain the U.S.C.G. 100 Gross Ton Master's License. It has been a lifelong dream of mine to finally pursue this type of career, satisfying, rewarding and lots of fun! I would like to leave you with two words that I repeat quite a bit, “FISH ON!!”
