Outer Banks Charter Fishing is Our Specialty!


Oregon Inlet, on the Outer Banks of North Carolina, has developed into one of the most desirable sport fishing destinations on the East Coast. With so many different sport fishing species available from bluefish to bluefin tuna and so many unique charter fishing opportunities, your toughest challenge is deciding on which type of charter you want to try. We offer a large variety of choices from near shore or inshore charters that will run up to five miles off the beach to deep sea offshore charters that will venture up to 40 miles offshore for those more exotic species. At Instigator we are able to custom design every one of our Oregon Inlet charters around exactly what our customers would like to try.

We provide comfortable family friendly charter fishing trips at very affordable pricing for OBX visitors that are vacationing in Manteo, Nags Head, Kill Devil Hills, Kitty Hawk, Southern Shores, Duck and Corolla. Our USCG License allows up to six anglers. We offer private full boat charters as well as walk-on makeup charters to accommodate everyone from full groups to individual anglers. Please note that the pricing we quote on our rates page is for our entire charter boat and not per angler like crowded "head boats".
