One of our top picks in Beaufort. 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, may not be the most famous sportfishing town in the world, but it is worthy of being listed with the best of them. This is due to the simple fact that it has the closest deep sea drop-off of the entire East Coast, plummeting to bare bedrock just 50 miles from the dock. What this means is that even a half day trip can have you targeting species you would normally have to travel half the day just to get a glimpse of.
Captain Daniel Varner aims to give you nothing less than the best offshore fishing experience of your life, and as such he had the “Sea Grappler” custom built in 2008 to his own exacting standards. Weighing in at 32 feet, she can easily accommodate 4 anglers, and cruises a hair under 25 knots, impressive considering her size!
The Sea Grappler features all you could ask for of a top sportfishing boat. The latest electronics will get you exactly where you need to be, where a full spread of outriggers and downriggers let you target multiple species at once to maximize the action, and a fighting chair gives you the upper hand in even the most punishing of big game battles. Couple all that with tournament grade tackle for a variety of weight classes and techniques, and you are ready for a showdown with the biggest and meanest the Atlantic Ocean can throw at you.
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. His skilled crew will work themselves to the bone to get you on the fish, so please remember to tip them a healthy %15 for their labors. After all, it is not every day you get put on fish like these!

This trip with Capt Dan exceeded our expectations. He and his mate, Mike, were very friendly and helpful. They helped us clean our fish after the trip. We’ll definitely book with them again…probably a full day the next time.
