    For those looking for the "Ultimate Adventure"! Our overnight trip is a great combination. We leave the dock at noon and head out for the late afternoon tuna bite. Once the sun goes down, we set up for nighttime swordfishing and "chunking" for tuna. As the sun rises, we target the morning bite and arrive back at the dock around noon. This is a great trip for escaping the summer heat and catching a wide variety of fish that the Outer Banks has to offer

    Ready to treat yourself to a great offshore challenge? Our daytime swordfish trip maybe just what you're looking for. Swordfish, also called Gladiator of the Sea, are one of the most elusive and sought after gamefish. The swordfish is not your ordinary billfish. He uses his powerful bill to "whack" his prey, sometimes over and over again, to kill it before he eats. Once on, it is an incredible fight that can challenge even the most experienced angler.
