  • Highly Recommended!

    Created Jenny Smith

    We had a great trip with captain John and first mate Jack! Highly recommend them! The boat was nice and well equipped. My family had a great time!

  • Great Captains!

    Created Matthew Perry

    Captain Jason and Captain John are great captains and even better people. They have the equipment and the knowledge to put you on the fish, and I promise that it will be hard to find anyone who will work any harder to provide you with an awesome experience and hopefully a box full of fish. We look forward to fishing with them every year!!

  • 4 hour trip!

    Created Jim Herrmann

    Did the 4 hour trip today and I can not say enough about Captain John and his mate Jason. Caught fish all day. The boat is great and they were great guys. I can't wait to do the 6 hour trip with them.

  • Great Trip!

    Created Chris Cassidy

    Captain John and First Mate Brooke were absolutely stellar. My Dad has late stage parkinson's and is confined to a wheelchair, being 85% immobile... they not only agreed to get him on the boat and make him comfortable in the boat, they also took us "catching"... and if you think you are going to get a chance to drink your beer (or water) then think again, or tap out for a second.. we were on the fish.. Boat is solid, captain knows the water, and First mate will keep a rod and reel in your hand... FISH ON... you wont regret booking this boat and crew... Chris Cassidy... P.s.Thank you kind people of North Carolina. You made an old Vet and his boys and grandson very happy.

    We couldn't have asked for a better Captain and First Mate for our first off shore fishing experience! We're already looking forward to our next trip! Definitely worth the money, we highly recommend Carolina Style Sportfishing!!

  • Lifetime Memories!

    Created Joel Rush

    We had a great day on the water! It was my son’s first time in the ocean and we couldn’t have asked for a better first time experience. Ended the day with a boat full of ribbon fish and memories that will last a lifetime!

  • Great Job!

    Created Ryan Burrow

    Great fishing charter!! John and mate Brooke did a great job taking my family and I fishing. The adults enjoyed it and the kids loved it also. Had one get a little seasick and still said she loved catching the fish. We caught some King Mackerel and Albacore Tuna!! Thanks John and Brooke!!

We will be back soon!!! We cannot thank you enough for such a great experience!! 5+++ STARS from us!!
