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 what type of charter. We offer a large variety of choices from Inshore Charters that run up to 5 miles off the beach to Offshore Gulf Stream Charters that venture up to 40 miles offshore for the more exotic species. We are able to custom design each charter around exactly what you the customer would like to try.

We provide fun, family friendly charter fishing trips at very affordable pricing for our visitors vacationing in Manteo, Nags Head, Kill Devil Hills, Kitty Hawk, Southern Shores, Duck and Corolla. Our USCG License allows up to six anglers and we offer full boat as well as makeup charter pricing to accommodate everyone. Our pricing is charged for the entire charter boat and not per angler.
