Atlantic Ocean Charters - Veteran

Atlantic Ocean Charters welcomes anglers to the Crystal Coast of North Carolina (Morehead City, Atlantic Beach, Emerald Isle, Beaufort). Their geographic location puts them only fingertips away from some of the best sportfishing along the Atlantic seaboard. They offer a variety of charters to meet all of your fishing needs. From inshore to offshore, they have a boat ready just for you. The waters surrounding the Crystal Coast are well-known to be excellent and productive fishing grounds. Their area offers exceptional year-round fishing for a variety of species and their experienced crew is equipped to put you on them.

Climb aboard their 45’ Hatteras, an impressive offshore fishing vessel. She can hold the standard 6 anglers in great comfort, so no worries about getting your lines tangled on this boat. She’s powered by twin QSM engines each delivering a whopping 660 HP of thrust; you can develop 25 knots when cruising, quite astounding for a vessel of her size. She’s got all the comforts you can expect of a serious fishing vessel, a fully enclosed toilet, spacious cabin, and ample space.

Captain Scott Sinclair will be your guide and assistant on this adventure. He’ll take you after the prestigious fish that inhabit this area and are practically waiting for the right angler to give him a proper fight! Get ready to target Blue and White Marlin, Yellowfin Tuna, Wahoo, Amberjack, Mahi Mahi, and other species you may run into. The techniques used are geared towards big game fishing – spinning and bottom fishing with heavy tackle, trolling, and even kite fishing.

All required equipment is provided by the charter. Remember to bring sunscreen, polarized sunglasses, adequate clothing, and a waterproof camera to document your trophy catch. Pickup can be arranged from nearby locations, please contact the captain before arriving.
