Beaufort fishing charters are the gateway to the area’s diverse world of angling. From downtown piers to the open seas – these waters hold a challenge for every visitor. Located on the southern tip of the Inner Banks, this third oldest settlement in North Carolina is where incredible inshore fishing meets offshore thrills in the Gulf Stream!

Bring your family along and explore the shallows, targeting some tough-fighters like Spotted Seatrout, Redfish, Black Drum, and even Sharks. If you’re looking for a workout, troll the nearshore waters for brutes like Barracuda, Amberjack, Kingfish, and Cobia. Finally, if it’s a trophy you’re after, nothing is better  than getting on an offshore charter in search of beasts like Tuna, Sailfish, or Marlin.

Your target of choice also tells you what kind of trip you should book. A half day trip is great for learning about Beaufort inshore fishing, making it popular with beginners and families. If your sea legs are ready, opt for an expedition to choppy nearshore waters on an extended half day trip. For the fight of your life, head to the Gulf Stream on a full day adventure!

This small town lives and breathes fishing. This is immediately clear once you see its shoreline and all the docks and marinas dotting the coast. Most charters depart from the marinas along Town Creek, which provides boats with ample cover and quick access to the ocean via the Beaufort Inlet. 

Rules & Regulations

Your captain’s for-hire license will cover everyone on board. If you decide to test your luck from the pier, you will need to purchase a North Carolina Fishing license beforehand.

I didn’t think we were going to catch that many sharks, but after eating some I wish I had kept more of them. They were delicious.

Be open to going after whatever is biting. There had been some weather through, but the area around the Cape is a good place and a good place for a first trip in the area.

It was a great trip, Captain David was very flexible with our two-day trip when the weather didn’t cooperate on day one, and Chris was very helpful and patient, teaching us how to do things we didn’t know, and keeping us entertained whenever fish weren’t biting. Great value for money overall, and great fishing.

Had a great day with these guys! Myself and my 2sons all caught our pb fish( 1 adult sandbar and a nurse shark) and a pile of other fish. We also got to experience the swells from hurricane fiona, it was amazing. Shaggy always had something interesting to talk about. What a great captain and crew. My middle son commented to me that he couldn't believe how fast the day went by

The captain handled all 5 of us effortlessly . The bite was a little tough but she still managed to get us a nice mess of fish. My wife and I both commented on how kind and patient she is. It was a pleasure to meet her. I would feel very comfortable bringing kids fishing with her. Had a blast.

Had an awesome time spending the day with hawk charters. When the fishing started out slow they changed up locations and tried different methods until all of us caught a keeper! They really worked hard to put us on fish, make sure we were all reeling in something nice and having a great time doing it. Would definitely book with Hawk Charters again!

Capt. David and mate Shaggy with Hawk Charters are top notch. Very professional and knowledgeable and put us on some large catches (Sailfish, Blackfin Tuna, Amberjack). Equipment and boat are in good condition and clean running which was much appreciated as diesel fumes make me nauseous.

Captain Jason was knowledgeable and friendly. The fishing was tough due to the winds, but he really tried his hardest to find us fish to catch. He tried a lot of different areas and bait and even though we didn’t catch anything but a few small fish, it was an excellent day on the water and my family had fun which is all that matters. I appreciate the effort Jason put in to make sure we enjoyed our trip and I would definitely recommend him to anyone considering a charter.
