Cape Hatteras is renowned worldwide for its abundant sportfishing opportunities and the shortest boat rides on the entire East Coast to the fishing grounds. Deep sea offshore sportfishing offers a chance to catch beautiful mahi, hard fighting and tasty yellowfin tuna, fiesty blackfin tuna, giant bluefin tuna, lightning fast wahoo, and majestic sailfish, white marlin and blue marlin. Also, depending on the season, our coastal inshore opportunities might include fishing for such species as red drum, striped bass, cobia, king mackerel, spanish mackerel and bluefish. Give us a call anytime to find out what is biting right now.

Captain D.M. Gray

Captain D.M. GrayMy name is D.M. Gray and I was born and raised right here in the Village of Hatteras. I first started riding along on Hatteras deep sea charter boats when I was just 12 years old. I had my first day as a mate when I was 13 and received my captains license when I was 22. Now 36 years after my first offshore trip I'm still pursuing the life on the water I love. Over the years I have a part of some amazing fishing including tournaments. I have experienced a few wins and seconds and have lots of quality experiences. If you are interested in trying your luck in a tournament please look us up. My main goal every day is to provide every angler aboard an enjoyable day on the water. We design our fishing around our customer's desires. If you tell us you want to catch mahi, tuna and wahoo that's what we will target. If you would rather spend your day chasing an elusive marlin that's what we'll do. Don't forget to bring your kids fishing. There's nothing like watching the look on the face of a youngster as he reels in his first offshore fish. It's a bonding memory that you both remember always.
