Join a Fisherman for Coffee
When you arrive in New Bedford, you might not know anyone. That gets old fast – which is why Fishing Partnership hosts the Coffee mate program, an opportunity to connect with local and traveling fishermen. Why not join a fisherman for coffee on us at one of New Bedford’s coffee houses? We invite you to relax, share experiences and learn about services and programs that can add to your visit.

New Bedford Fishing Partnership Navigator
“I love the commercial fishing industry and my job as a Navigator because I get to help members of this community directly. The Coffee mate program is a great opportunity for fishermen to share experiences with one another. Some of the most helpful and meaningful connections are made over a cup of coffee. Give me a call next time you’re visiting: 508.858.1826. I look forward to welcoming you to New Bedford and connecting you with other fishermen for conversation.”
