Vicarious Charters

Explore the beautiful waters off the coast of North Carolina with Vicarious Charters, and have the time of your life! Captain Dave and Quentin enjoy fishing, diving, and surfing – they have a real love for the water. They’ve been running charters for the past 5 years, but they’ve been fishing for many more, so you can be sure of their ability to take you where the fish are.

You’ll head out on their 26’ Glacier Bay Caterman. It’s powered by twin 200HP Suzuki engines, making it a force to be reckoned with in these waters. The boat has all the navigational electronics you’ll need, as well as a T-top to protect you from the sun, and a basic onboard toilet. There are also large fish boxes and dry storage for anything you want to bring along.

With Dave and Quentin, you’ll get a variety of experiences to choose from. Depending on the conditions, you’ll be targeting species like Amberjack, Bluefish, Cobia, Mahi Mahi, Flounder, Redfish, Seabass, Sheepshead, Spadefish, Mackerel, Trout, and Triggerfish. That’s a wide range of fish, so you definitely won’t go home empty-handed!

All of the fishing equipment will be ready for you on board, as well as a range of lures. Shorter trips are a great introduction to fishing, if you want to bring your kids along for the fun. The longer ones allow for wreck fishing in the deeper waters. If you’re feeling adventurous, snorkeling and spearfishing are possible with some planning in advance.

You’ll get drinks on board, but make sure to bring some food to keep you energized, especially on the longer trips. Don’t forget to pack some sunscreen and a camera to take photos of your adventure, and you’re all set. As the charter name suggests, the captains have fun when you’re having fun, so get ready!

Join Vicarious Charters, and have an adventure of a lifetime in the abundant waters of North Carolina!

I really enjoy being on the water and as a marine educator I am passionate about experiencing what is in our aquatic environments. I am happy to pass that excitement on to clients. Our other captain is also a local waterman who understand the biology of the area and loves to share his stoke for the Outer Banks.
