Frequently Asked Questions

There are a lot of things to consider when arranging an fishing charter. First off, not all big game offshore deep sea fishing charters are equal. We provide the highest quality yacht and equipment available on the Outer Banks at a price that is the same as our competition charters. If you are looking for a more congenial option with a personal touch, we would like you to consider chartering the crew of the Sandra D.

Please don't hesitate to contact us if we can help answer any questions or provide any information about our offshore fishing charters or your future vacation plans.
