At dawn the experienced crews have rigged their boats and are ready for a day of exciting sportfishing. Shortly after, the charter fleet passes through Hatteras Inlet for the short run to the Gulf Stream. The captains and mates are courteous, helpful and skillful in making families, novice and experienced anglers feel at ease.
Offshore Charter Fishing
Dolphin, Tuna, Wahoo, Sailfish and Marlin are among the many fish our charter fleet will encounter in the gulfstream water off Hatteras.

The boats depart at 6:00 am and arrive back at the dock from 4:00-5:00 pm where the fisherman can enjoy a sense of pride and pleasure as the day's catch is displayed for the many spectators visiting the Marina. All boats are licensed to take up to 6 passengers.
Inshore Charter Fishing
Inshore anglers can book either full or half-day trips. A typical half-day trip leaves the dock at 7:00 am and returns at 11:30am, docking long enough to grab lunch. At 12:30 pm, the inshore fleet heads back out and will return at 5:00 pm. These half-day trips are productive, boasting catches of mackerel, trout, bluefish, flounder, rockfish and red drum.
If you are by yourself or with a small group, our makeup charter service might be the way to get you out fishing. The cost is $280 per person. Please stop in at the marina office or request a fax form by calling 1-800-676-4939.
