Oak Island Charters, home of "Playin Hooky" and King Coffin III", we want your fishing trip to be the best one that you have ever been on. We plan each deepsea fishing trip  and scenic boat tours carefully according to the weather and the type of fish you would like to target. We leave the dock at safe light and usually return to the dock with at least two hours of daylight left to clean your fish and do preparations to the boat for the next day. Oak Island fishing charter trips usually fish between 1 and 50 miles from shore. Our boats are fast and comfortable and we get you to the fish fast no matter how close or far we have to go to find fish.
