Ortus Charters has two USCG certified captains, Mark Welcome and Scott Yelle, who are life-long friends with a love for being on the water. This friendship and love for fishing led them to start Ortus. We love to share our experience from fishing the waters of Cape Cod with our guests.
As Ortus Charters Captains, we take safety very seriously. It is a top priority in every one of our fishing and boating excursions. Our boat and gear is safety inspected by the USCG.
We are based out of Wellfleet, MA and specialize in striped bass, bluefish, and bluefin tuna. We also fish for fluke, haddock, cod, and black sea bass when in season.
We will depart from various local ports from the mid to outer Cape as we use our local network of Captains to find the best locations to fish that day. Our goal is to have the shortest amount of travel and greatest amount of fishing time.
We currently run a Boston Whaler Outrage that is 27 feet in length and can take 1-4 passengers depending on the type of fishing excursion. We will provide all the gear for the trip as well as provide a cooler to place your beverages and lunch.
