Topsail Island Fish & Dive Adventures

Based out of Hampstead, North Carolina, Captain Will Bridges owns and operates Topsail Island Fish & Dive Adventures. He offers inshore and offshore fishing charters for a wide range of species, as well as spearfishing trips based on experience level.

Capt. Will’s fishing vessel is a 25’ White Water center console that is fully equipped with all the required safety gear and the latest electronics. The boat comes powered by a 2019 300 HP Suzuki engine to get to the best fishing grounds quickly. There is enough room for up to 4 anglers plus the guide.

Trips with T.I. Fish & Dive Charters are fully custom-designed, targeting the species and areas you would most like to explore. Whether you want to spend the day chasing Mahi Mahi and Wahoo offshore, or pulling huge Groupers from the bottom, or take a nearshore trolling trip during the summer for Spanish and King Mackerel, Captain Will will make sure the trip is tailored to suit your needs.

T.I. Fish & Dive also specializes in custom spearfishing trips. Full day offshore near the Frying Pan tower and surrounding areas, you will experience some of the most diverse species in one area!

All gear, bait, bottled water, and a few snacks will be supplied for your trip. Feel free to bring your own food and drinks with you!

Topsail Island Fish & Dive Adventures is the ultimate charter for a fishing experience that every guest should feel at least once. Pick a trip, pick a date…and pick your target.

I became a Guide in 2012 in Big Pine Key, moved back home to NC where I have been running T.I. Fish & Dive full time. I love being on the water daily, and being able to show people the amazing sights the ocean has to offer, as well as providing delicious eats for my clients.
