Island Saltwater Adventure

Island Saltwater Adventure specializes in family-friendly fishing adventures! Join Captain Jeffrey for a day of relaxation and a stress-free trip you’ll remember for a long time. This is also a great opportunity to explore the parts of Hatteras Island that can only be seen by boat. Bring your loved ones and start your journey!

You’ll be fishing on a 23’ Sportsman that accommodates up to 6 guests. This center console is powered by a 250 HP Yamaha engine that reaches speeds of up to 30 knots. The boat also features navigational electronics, a flybridge, and a live bait tank. No matter where you go, you’ll enjoy a safe and reliable ride throughout the day.

Choose between a custom inshore and nearshore half or full-day trip. You can also visit Ocracoke, a trip that combines fishing and clamming if you choose. Although it’s great to spend all day fishing, the crew recognizes a lot of family groups enjoy mixing it up and exploring the secluded sandbar islands around Hatteras inlet. This is why they like to include you while planning your day.

All fishing equipment and licenses are included in the price. You only need to pack your food and drinks for the day. Don’t forget sun protection as well!

Island Saltwater Adventure offers the best way to enjoy a day off with your loved ones. You just need to pick the date and show up!

I grew up fishing in the ocean and sound waters around Hatteras. My family has been on the island for generations, both commercial and recreational fishing has been a part of our lives all the way back to my great grandparents. We are always on the water and if we aren't fishing with a rod and reel then we are probably spearfishing or surfing.
