Full Day Offshore

Looking for a thrill of a lifetime - then our offshore charter is for you!

The Outer Banks is famous for its offshore fishing.  Whether its tuna, dolphin, wahoo or marlin - we have it!

Our fully-rigged sportfish boats head about 40 miles offshore, once there, the mate sets out a variety of trolling baits and teaser rigs.  

Imagine the thrill of a hooking yellowfin - a fight you will remember for a lifetime (not to mention, a great meal or two) or having a blue marlin jump and fly through the air at the end of your line.

Offshore species include yellowfin tuna, blackfin tuna, wahoo, mahi, mako sharks, sailfish, white marlin and our apex predatory species blue marlin.

An offshore fishing trip is the ultimate sport fishing excursion.

Makeup Charters

Over the past few years as charter fishing gets more expensive, the popularity of makeup charters has increased tremendously. These trips are called many things along the East Coast including makeup, group sharing, walk on and open boat charters.

We are constantly putting individual anglers together with other groups (usually a total of six anglers) so that they can share expenses and either an nearshore half day, nearshore 6 hour or an offshore charter fishing experience.

Unlike other services where you are put on a waiting list to find a full group, we will make every effort within our means to find the additional anglers you require for your trip.

Let us know what type of trip your are looking for and we will work our magic to get you on your next charter.
