Marva Outdoors Charter Service

From drag-screaming action to relaxing sunset fishing, Marva Outdoors will customize your trip and provide you with the experience you’re looking for. Captain Trey Ritter is a USCG licensed guide and Virginia native with years of experience fishing along the East Coast.

You’ll join him aboard his 26’ C-Hawk center console. She comes with a flybridge for sight fishing and Lowrance navigational equipment, making it easier than ever to locate your prey. The boat accommodates up to 4 guests, you’ll have a porta potty on board, as well as 2 coolers, one for your catch and another for food and drinks. There is no minimum age for children and Capt. Trey has kids and adult-sized life vests available.

You’ll troll along the Chesapeake Bay or oceanfront looking for Cobia, Bluefish, Stripers, and King Mackerel. You’ll also be able to bottom fish for species such as Redfish and Black Drum. Other techniques you may use, depending on the species you’re targeting, may include jigging, popping, and spinning.

Capt. Trey is an expert in fly fishing as well. As long as you bring your own fly rod, the captain will take you on an exclusive challenge to target species such as Spadefish and Spotted Seatrout.

Capt. Trey also offers spearfishing for those looking to take their skills beneath the surface. Just bring your own diving gear and get ready for a memorable fishing experience! You can also customize your trip and target various Shark species such as Blacktip and Dogfish.

You’ll have plenty of top-quality rods and reels to choose from, made by Shimano, Penn, Daiwa, and Ugly Stik. Your fishing license is already covered, so all you need to bring is some food, drinks, sunscreen, and a hat.

VA Beach is famous for its biodiversity, so be sure to bring a camera to capture some of its beautiful wildlife, including dolphins and rays. Get ready to discover the Chesapeake Bay, as well as Virginia’s pristine coastline, and book your next fishing trip with Marva Outdoors!

Captain Trey Ritter grew up hunting and fishing at a young age. Over the years, he’s learned everything there is to know about the natural habitats of Virginia and Maryland’s Eastern Shore, as well as the historic Chesapeake Bay. He’s fished and hunted up and down the entire East Coast of the U.S. and Canada, “but nothing compares to the hunting and fishing that the Chesapeake Bay region offers.” Having grown on the Lafayette River, a small tributary off of the Chesapeake Bay, he learned to chase large Stripers, Cobia, Redfish, and other popular summer trophy fish. Capt. Trey is USCG licensed, holds a number of Saltwater Citations for prize species, and has also placed in several large regional tournaments. You can expect a passionate angler and guide who loves to share his knowledge with families, friends, and clients to deliver the most memorable experience on the water. Get ready for a fantastic day on the Bay and book your next fishing trip with Marva Outdoors!
