Yes there has been a slight change. We have changed our name to Open Waters Sportfishing but we continue to offer the same great fishing with the same great captain on the same great charter boat.

At Open Waters Sportfishing Charters our goal is providing the most affordable prices available at Cape Hatteras for both full day and half day deep sea offshore and coastal inshore fishing opportunities. Over the last several years our customers have learned they can always expect to receive Open Water's congenial approach with a uniquely personal family friendly touch.

We are known for always going out of our way to fill the fish box for our charter fishing clients. Whether it means offshore trolling the hottest spots for wahoo or jigging over a popular inshore Hatteras wreck, we promise to work harder to produce the best results possible.We also offer our customers the opportunity (if desired) to participate in rigging a ballyhoo or gaffing their own fish. Open Waters has always encouraged guests to become even more involved in the day's fishing if a more hands-on experience is what they're looking for. Our mate is always willing to assist and instruct our guests throughout their trip.

Cape Hatteras continues to be well known as an outstanding vacation paradise for deep sea offshore sportfishing. Many avid sportfishing anglers from all corners of the globe come to visit us just for the opportunity to fish in our balmy coastal waters. Let our experienced and professional Open Waters crew show you why!

Why So Many Offshore Deep Sea Anglers Choose Cape Hatteras

The Atlantic Gulf Stream meanders as close as only ten miles outside Hatteras Inlet. Because of this natural phenomenon our local Cape Hatteras deep sea charter boats can offer you the shortest boat rides this side of Miami. You'll receive more fishing .... and a lot less riding!

Hatteras charter boats are well known for producing big aggressive sportfish and plenty of them! Most anglers prefer to drive a little farther in their comfortable cars so that they can enjoy more time fishing and less time boat riding. Within a very short period of time after leaving the marina you will be fishing for wahoo, mahi, yellowfin tuna, bluefin tuna, sharks and more. Hey, you might even get a chance at a sailfish. Open Waters proudly supports and welcomes tourism in Hatteras Village, Frisco, Buxton, Avon, Salvo, Waves, Rodanthe and all of Hatteras Island.
