Get ready for the adventure of a lifetime with Beaufort Charters, fishing the deep blue waters offshore for an all-star cast of pelagic predators, including Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, Sailfish, and Yellowfin Tuna. Add a who’s who of reef species to the menu, and you are in for a fishing trip like you have never had before.
Beaufort, NC, is an amazing place to get out on the water. It has the closest deep sea drop-off of the entire East Coast, plummeting to bare bedrock just 50 miles from the dock. Who better to fish this with than a captain with over 30 years of experience in the local waters?
Captain Daniel Varner has over 30 years of local experience and works with his clients before each trip to make sure they get exactly what they are after. He aims to give you nothing less than the best offshore fishing experience of your life.
Beaufort Charters fishes aboard the “Sea Grappler,” which was custom built in 2008. Measuring 32 feet, she can easily accommodate 6 anglers, and her powerful Cummins engine gives her the speed to take you to the offshore fishing grounds, fast.
The Sea Grappler also features a full spread of outriggers and downriggers, so you can target multiple species at once. When you get hooked up, her fighting chair will give you the upper hand against your target fish. All the tackle on board the boat is tournament grade. Get ready for a showdown with the biggest and meanest the Atlantic Ocean can throw at you!
Captain Dan and his crew are known for their dedication on the water, so don’t forget to bring a tip for their hard work. 15-20% is industry standard. It’s not every day you get put on fish like these!
