Coastal Discovery Adventures

Coastal Discovery Adventures runs angling trips out of Surf City and offers to show you what the local fishery is all about.

Capt. Woody aims to tailor every trip to your specific needs, so let him know what you’re after! Depending on the trip and species, you’ll be using techniques like light tackle trolling and spinning. You’re looking at 4-hour trips, where you’ll usually go after the likes of Spanish Mackerel, Bluefish, Flounder, King Mackerel, Redfish, and Little Tunny, depending on the weather and time of year.

You’ll be fishing from a 21’ Coastal Skiffs boat with enough room for up to 5 anglers at any single time. All rods, reels and terminal tackle are included in the price so you can focus on what really matters, fishing. Your trip will include all the necessary fishing licenses for the day.

You can keep anything you catch, as long as it’s legal to do so. This is a children-friendly charter, so you’re welcome to bring your kids on for a fun fishing adventure.

Book your trip now and hit the water with Coastal Discovery Adventures.
