You can explore the surrounding area including Bald Head Island, Oak Island, and further out. Just take your pick from one of the many trip options they offer and you are in for an adventure.

The charter is operated by Captain Robert Capps who is a local to Oak Island and knows these waters like the palm of his hand. He has fished from Nags Head to the Florida Keys, the Bahamas, and even to Mexico. Captain Robert is able to accommodate both novice and experienced anglers, and especially enjoys taking and teaching kids how to fish. 

Captain Robert will take you out on his 26’ Triton center console boat, originally built in 2020. The boat is powered by a 300 HP Yamaha engine.
