Crabbing with Croatan Charters

Crab & Shrimping Charters

This is a great trip for families with young children who want to introduce them to one of the many things that mother nature has to offer.  You will probably see many types of life above the water as well as below. Everyone gets to participate as much or little as they like.

Stripers - Croatan Charters

Fishing Charters - Seasonal

Enjoy the inshore fishing of the Outer Bank's Croatan and Roanoke Sounds. These waters are normally calm and provide a great seasonal fishery for Rockfish and Speckled Trout.

At times it can be some of the best on the east coast.

Custom Charters -

We will be glad to customize a trip for your specific desire. This could include but not limited to clamming, sightseeing, touring a sand island or anything else you might be interested in.
