More About Our Oak Island Charters
Our Deep Sea Oak Island fishing charter boats specialize year round in both bottom fishing and trolling. They routinely take large catches of King and Spanish mackerel, snapper, jack, grouper, tuna and sharks. In addition, many other sport fish are commonly caught. Your catch will generally be cleaned and dressed for a nominal fee.
A full day of fishing usually last up to ten hours with departure times at 6:00- 7:00a.m. Full, three quarter and half day trips are available. The trips usually consist of four to six people with the average prices for a half day $550 depending on witch of our boats you prefer to fish (up to six people). Prices may vary. For larger groups several boats may operate together. Ice, bait and tackle are provided for your convenience.
All the fish you will be reeling will work up an appetite. The chartering party usually provides food and beverages for itself, but special arraignments may be made to visit one of our local waterfront restaurants.
Generally captains have no restrictions prohibiting consumption of alcohol on vessels, but for the safety of you and others, alcohol abuse is prohibited.
Dressing for the trip. Soft soled deck shoes (no black sole tennis shoes) are recommended. Hats, sunglasses and sunscreen are a must. During the spring, fall and winter, wear warm clothing to protect yourself from chilling winds. During the summer months, adequate clothing is needed to protect you from the sun.
If you are inclined toward motion sickness or if you are taking children on the trip, one of the many drug store remedies will be helpful if taken before departure.
Do not forget any medications and if you are allergic to anything or have any medical conditions, please let the boat captain know prior to the charter date (I know of one charter where the passenger was allergic to spiders, and received a spider bite causing the boat to return to port). The captain or crew WILL NOT give medications.
To avoid disappointment, boats should be reserved in advance, especially for holiday or weekend trips. Reservations made the evening before may be sufficient for weekday trips.
A saltwater license is required, however our charter boats have licenses to cover you while fishing aboard our vessels.
