Drifter Offshore also offers Captain for hire trips. Our captains have a wide variety of skills and specialties and are extremely flexible for these trips.


For-hire trips that we run include:

1. Offshore fishing on your boat

2. Inshore fishing on your boat

3. Boat driving lessons

4. Kayak or paddle board inshore fishing

5. Shore fishing

6. Surf fishing


Our crew will bring all of their own gear and bait (unless you choose to use your own), conduct a safety inspection of your vessel and take you fishing. For offshore trips, the captain will also add offshore waypoints to your chart plotter (GPS numbers) and help you tune and understand your electronics. 




*Boats must be equipped with all required safety equipment and it must be in working condition.

*Clients booking for hire trips will need an NC CRFL, as well as anyone else on board. You can purchase your license online here.

*Hourly rate does not begin until the vessel or trip is underway
