  • $300 deposit within one week of your reservation date to hold the booked date. In cases where two parties want the same date it is important to be the first one to get in your deposit in order to secure that date.
  • Only the captain can cancel a trip. It is imperative that you show up at the boat for your trip at the assigned time. Hatteras offshore weather can be very tricky and often a day that looks to be a problem will actually be perfect weather offshore.
  • If it is necessary for your captain to cancel a trip, you will be given the option of either returning your deposit or rescheduling your charter date. Note; you must show up for your trip at the assigned time to be given this option.

Frequently Asked Questions

Bluefin is US Coast Guard licensed to take along six passengers.
Our rates is for the entire party, not per person. Per person rates are available for makeup charters which can be scheduled through Teach's Lair Marina.
Bluefin provides all fishing licenses which are good for as long as you are fishing on our boat.
Definitely yes, you can keep up to the legal and practical limits of all fish that we catch. However, it is a common practice to release all billfish (blue marlin, white marlin, and sailfish) in order to protect the species and hopefully allow someone to catch them again.
Teach's Lair Marina has a fish cleaning service that will filet and package your catch for a moderate fee. If you desire to clean your own fish please remember to bring along a cooler and we will help you load the fish into your vehicle.
Your refund is non-refundable unless the Captain calls off the trip for reasons of weather or safety. You are required to show up at the appointed time in order to discuss either receiving a refund or rescheduling.
We provide all licenses, ice, fishing tackle and bait. Please feel free to bring along a favorite rod, reel or lure if you prefer but it is not necessary.
Bluefin leaves the dock at or just before first light so the departure time depends on the time of year. Please check with the captain when making the reservation about when to arrive. Plan to return to the dock around 5:00 PM in the afternoon.
Customers should bring along a small cooler with previously prepared food like for example sandwiches, fruit, crackers, cookies, chips, etc. Fancy spreads are normally extremely difficult to manage at sea. Quick and simple is the better choice. Note: Crackers and Gingerale are said to help an upset stomach so if there is any doubt bring some.
Federal and Maritime Laws require that we can allow only a reasonable amount of canned beer (no glass bottles, hard liquor, or wine). Important; if a party member becomes intoxicated, as determined by the captain, for the safety of everyone on our boat, we are required to return to the dock without any refunds. We take your safety very seriously..
If you are prone to seasickness or motion sickness there are many over-the-counter pills available. However most of them come with several undesireable side effects. If you are concerned with taking or even giving these medicines to your family please consider getting an electronic Reliefband. I have been using these bands for years. These electronic devices even work well on 3D amusement park rides and reading a book while riding in a car.
Years ago many trophies including billfish were kept and mounted by a taxidermist but over the last several years fiberglass reproductions have become the way to go. If you would like to recreate your released trophy, please let us know and we can take pictures and measurements for you and then recommend a place to have the reproduction made. They are actually much more attractive and will last much longer. There is nothing to compare to the satisfaction of releasing a trophy fish.
The Gulf Stream is a very unique environment. You can leave the dock in freezing conditions and when you get to the warm waters of the Gulf Stream realize that you are overdressed. We recommend that you wear layered clothing that you can take off or put on so that you can stay comfortable.
A wet boat deck can get extremely slippery! For your safety we recommend that you wear non-slip boating style shoes but athletic shoes or sneakers will work. Please do not wear black soled shoes because the marks they leave on fiberglass are very hard to remove.
