Aqua Therapy Fishing Charters

When you’re in need of some fishing therapy and offshore is the name of your game, Aqua Therapy Fishing Charters might just be what the doctor ordered! Join Captain Ben for half day and full day expeditions on the waters of North Carolina.

Hop aboard the captain’s 48’ Egg Harbour sport fisher and head to the most productive fishing grounds in the area. The boat is spacious enough to sit up to 6 excited anglers. It’s also fast, thanks to the twin 475 HP Cummins engines, that make the ride to the fishing spots a comfortable cruise between 21-30 knots.

Restored in 2020, the vessel sports a private toilet, top-of-the-line navigational electronics, and a multimedia system to blast your favorite tunes while reeling in your next personal record. Capt. Ben will provide all the necessary Shimano tackle, so you don’t have to bring your own, as well as live bait and lures. All you need to bring are snacks, food, and good fishing mood.

On your to-catch list are all the A-listers of the deep, from Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, Red Snapper, and Yellowfin Tuna to Wahoo, Amberjack, various species of Grouper, and much more. For half day trips, you will stay within 30 miles of shore, and for the full day expeditions you can go as far as 60 miles offshore.

Whether you’d like to come fish with your angling buddies or the family and kids, Capt. Ben and Aqua Therapy Fishing Charters will happily accommodate you all. Ready for your next offshore fishing adventure?

Captain Ben grew up with a rod in his hands and it was his father that got him into fishing. In time, fishing became much more than a hobby for Ben – it was a way of life. That's why he decided to pursue his passion and he's been running charters for almost a decade. Capt. Ben loves teaching people how to fish and seeing them enjoy his trips with their family.
