Four Winds Chartering

374 Dandy Haven Road
Hampton VA, United States

Four Winds Chartering runs the most fun and exciting fishing adventures in the beautiful city of Hampton, in Virginia. They make each trip enjoyable and a learning experience for their guests, by going straight to the best fishing spots and giving sound advice on how to catch and reel in the fish. This is what they will do with you!

You will target Striped Bass, Spotted Seatrout, the super tasty Flounder, Grey Triggerfish, Black Drum and other exciting species that call these waters home.

You will fish aboard a 42 foot R.F. Green saltwater fishing boat, which is powered by a 225 HP Detroit engine. The boat is safe and reliable, being equipped with all the safety equipment and electronics you need for a successful trip. It has a flybridge and a toilet, which is an absolute must have if you are taking kids out on the water.

The boat is operated by Captain John O’neal who has been fishing these waters from an early age and is familiar with all the productive spots in the area. He will provide you with rods, reels, tackle, lures and a fishing license, so all you have to bring is a positive attitude and sunglasses.

In the words of Captain John: “Quit wishing - let’s go fishing”!
