Come aboard OBX Fishing Outfitters and make the most of the Outer Banks’ rich inshore sounds. These Sound waters are full of delicious fish and crustaceans. Fill the boat with fresh Shrimp and Crab in what promises to be an authentic local experience!

Captain Jamie Parker was born and raised on the OBX, he spends more time on the water than on land. He’s a commercial fisherman during winter and runs this charter during the summer season. He hopes to share his lifetime of fishing knowledge with you, helping you have a successful day on the water and making sure the kids rake in plenty of delicious treats.

His 34’ custom-made Deadrise downeast boat is fitted for all intents and purposes. Up to 6 guests are welcome aboard the spacious deck to try their hand at filling the boat. You’ll have the chance to try out trawling for Shrimp and pulling the Crab pots too. Bring your own drinks and snacks aboard and settle in for a thrilling day out.

There’s fun for the whole family aboard with Capt. Jamie. Bring the kids along and get them engaged in a healthy and educational activity.

At the end of the day, once you get back on land, you can visit a seafood market nearby that can steam your Crabs! There’s nothing left for you to do but come aboard and settle in for a real North Carolinian water adventure. Let OBX Fishing Outfitters show you why the Outer Banks are world-renowned for outdoor fun!
