Led by Captain Doug Sullivan and his son Bob Sullivan, Fishing Taxi Sportfishing has over 60 years of experience sailing the Atlantic Ocean between these two professional Captains.

The vessel sails out of Wanchese, Outer Banks, a wonderful little fishing community with tons of great fishing spots. With his knowledge of the Outer banks, Captain Doug covers a lot of ground to find the best fishing opportunities for all his customers. 

The spacious ‘Fishing Taxi’ sportfishing boat, which provides room for up to 6 people, is built by Ray Hunt. She is powered by 300 HP Twin Cummins engines. She features a flybridge and a huge deck area, and there is a toilet on board for your convenience. Everything is fully decked out for sportfishing, with a fighting chair and outriggers installed to make your trip one to remember.

Fishing Taxi Sportfishing offers a variety of Half Day fishing trips, ranging from four-hour nearshore fishing excursions targeting Bluefish and Spanish Mackerel to Sound Fishing that offer you the chance to drop your hook down from the boat and catch fish at your own pace. Any type of fishing you seek, Fishing Taxis got you covered.

All the gear and lures you will need are provided, so just come along and enjoy a great day on the water with Fishing Taxi Sportfishing. You will want to bring your camera, food/drinks, and weather-appropriate clothes (jackets, light layers, sunscreen and sunglasses). If you have any question about what to bring, don’t hesitate to ask!

Captain Doug can’t wait for y’all to come to the Outer Banks and see what you can make a memory of! Don’t wait! Book with Captain Doug and Fishing Taxi Sportfishing today!
