With Capt. Bill Russo & Capt. Mike Russo


The Orient Star was established in 1989 by Captain Bill Russo.  Over the years the Orient Star was known for its ability to accommodate customers from novice to seasoned anglers. The Orient Star has built a solid reputation as a family and children friendly boat.  Captain Mike Russo has proudly followed in his father’s footsteps to keep this tradition alive.

About the Captain

Captain Dan Buckley Jr., has taken the helm and is poised to continue the legacy of fishing and fun in the 2014 season. This Captain is a third generation Skipper on the North Fork. His love of fishing and all things nautical were fostered by his grandfather, Captain Roddy DeLisle. Always there to lend advice and a helping hand is his own father, Captain Dan Buckley Sr.  His brothers, Captain Chris & Captain TJ Buckley, also carry on this family tradition as Captain and Crew on boats out of Greenport and Orient Point.  

Captain Dan has over 30 years’ experience steering and working on charter and party boats on the North Fork. For the last five years, Captain Dan was co-owner of Brooklyn Girl II where he performed the duties of both Captain and Mate and maintained a great rapport with his customers.

Captain Dan also works as a Special Education Teacher for Eastern Suffolk BOCES.  His experience as a teacher lends him the patience and expertise to work with people of all levels of fishing ability. 

Captain Dan is married to his wife, Karen, and has a son, Danny.  The family resides on the North Shore of Long Island.
