An exciting day for the whole family starts right here! Join Red Finn Charters in Hatteras, NC, and start a trip that will bring you lots of fun, lots of tasty fish, and lots of good memories. Captain Zach offers his services year round, so you can join any time you’re in the area. There’s no need for a previous fishing experience, as you can learn everything you need to know right here.

You’ll be fishing on a 24’ Privateer boat that accommodates up to 4 guests. She’s powered by a 250 HP Suzuki engine and features GPS and a fishfinder, so you can count on reaching the right spots fast. The boat also has a cooler for your snacks and drinks.

There’s a variety of fishing trips to choose from and you’ll easily find something that feels like it was made for you. From a 2-hour evening and clamming trips, and 4-hour tours for those who want to learn more about fishing, to a full 8-hour trip for those who won’t give up until they land the fish of their dreams. You can go after Trout, Redfish, Cobia, Flounder, Spanish Mackerel, Sheepshead, and many more.

Your fishing licenses and equipment are included in the price. You only need to prepare some snacks and drinks for the day. For a hot day on the water, it’s also recommended to bring sunglasses, hats, and sunscreen.

A trip with Red Finn Charters is a perfect way to bond with your loved ones, relax, and get the tastiest fish meat.
