On our last day of vacationing on the Outer Banks we went fishing on the half day in-shore fishing trip aboard the Crystal Dawn. Considering nearly all the other boats were over a thousand dollars to go fishing in the Gulf Stream, we were surprised...More

We went out on the Crystal Dawn in late September 2017. Never would have booked it if I knew we would travel one hour out and one hour back to fish for bait. This was not a fishing trip. Only one person on the entire...More

On both the trip out and back we saw a lot of dolphins and that was great. Fishing was fun, our party had mixed luck with catching fish. Staff was informative, friendly and helpful. My only suggestion is setting a minimum age as the allowing...More

I've been on many fishing charter boats and this one is not recommended. The staff doesn't help catch fish, they just like to talk and try to crack jokes. The captain, though he might have tried, kept dropping us in the same places with no...More

we booked the all day fishing trip. All day is a bit misleading as it takes 2 hours (one way) before you drop a pole. This should have been told to us up front. Boat was crowded and you had to take turns fishing from...More

Always enjoy fishing on Country Girl Charters. Captain Charles and his crew know where to find the fish and how to get them in the boat. Can't wait till the next trip! They are family friendly too!

We've been going out on the Crystal Dawn for over ten years now. Every summer we make a trip out and we've always enjoyed it. Some times the fishing has been great, other times not so great- depends on many variables but that's fishing! It's...More

nice crew, but no fish were caught by 17 people in a half day trip. come to find out that the waters around here are not worth fishing in anyway, and that's pretty typical for all boats. make sure your expectations for fish are at...More

Everyone has their own rod and fishes at the same time. Fish cleaning is an up charge.

I'm sorry for the late response. We don't have any overnighters available although that sounds like a fun thing to do. We recommend that our customers contact the Miss Hatteras. They are in Hatteras and if they don't do it... More
