Offshore Fishing

Ocracoke is a unique offshore fishing destination known for its wide array of fishing opportunities.

Cape Lookout lies 55 miles to our south, home to the ever famous Big Rock fishing grounds. 40 miles to our North you will find the tip of Cape Hatteras, often referred to as “gamefish junction” due to the confluence of currents and fish species. In between those two landmark fishing destinations the warm waters of the Gulf Stream meander over the continental shelf as close as 18 miles off of Ocracoke Inlet.

The entire Outer Banks is known for its outstanding fishing, but Ocracoke offers shorter runs to the warm gulf stream waters. Couple this with year round opportunities for species such as tuna, billfish, wahoo, dolphin, and an assortment of bottom fish, and you have a fishers paradise.
