Our Hatteras Charter Rates

Many factors go into calculating our charter prices, including maintenance, licenses, fuel, insurance, advertising, dock fees, fishing tackle and lures, bait, and more. We really appreciate your business and we always will make every effort possible to keep our rates the most competitive in Hatteras. Many boats raised their rates ewhen we had rapidly escalating fuel prices. We held the line and are still the best price for a larger charter boat offshore trip. Give us a call and see why we are your best charter fishing option in Hatteras.

Important Note: Unless you hear from the Captain beforehand, please be prepared to show up for your charter no matter how the weather looks. It is surprising how often the coastal and offshore weather looks bad and then changes near Hatteras in an instant. The Captain will assess the weather with you and then make the call just before departure. Safety is always the deciding factor in these situations but you must be there in order to receive your deposit refund or rebooking. No shows are considered to have forfeited their deposit.
