We went fishing as my 11 year old son loves to fish and we're not really fans. We figured if we caught anything large there would be someone there to help us get it off the hook and clean it for us. Well...we needn't have worried. We each caught one small croaker in the time we were out Wednesday morning,... More

As we stood on the dock watching the morning trip unload their limited catch, I must admit that I was not very optimistic. There was only 20 some people on our trip so there was plenty of space aboard the vessel. The mate put together a fishing pool which boosted my moral as I like to compete. Perhaps the incoming...

Ive been on about 10 headboats and this was the worst. On the good side the Booking lady very nice and captain was a pleasure to speak with but rest of experience sub par. First time Ive seen all the passengers have to get their own poles. When we got them (5 - one for each of us) they were... More

I can't believe I forgot to post this till now!... Last September my wife and I got married aboard the Crystal Dawn on a private sunset cruise. We were on a rather tight budget and this was about the best we could afford. I wouldn't have traded this experience for a free ride on any other boat! My bride was... More

Went on this trip with my grandson so that makes it a valuable trip from the beginning. We went on the afternoon trip. Didn't catch any fish but the weather was good, the mate and Captain were accommodating so it was a good trip.

Went on a fishing excursion on the Crystal Dawn. The crew was very helpful, showing us how to use the rods and coming to our aid when needed. I went out with a group of about 20 other people. Nobody caught anything. It would have been better if we came home with fish.

Didn't catch a boat full of fish, but it was a fun day. We saw lots of dolphin and lighthouses, as well as fishing villages. We bottom fished just off the Oregon Inlet bridge. While fishing, two of the charter boats from Wicked Tuna cruised by, at which point mate John Jackson pointed out exactly where they crashed into the... More

My wife and kids wanted to go fishing while vacationing on the Outer Banks. Of course I was a little apprehensive about taking them miles offshore since they had never even been on a boat in the ocean. I, however, had, and wanted to get out there and catch some fish! It all worked out perfectly. I was able to... More

I took my family ages ranging from 7-67 out on the country girl for a full day of wreck fishing. I was a little worried about the young ones on a boat for that long, but it turned out to be one of the best trips I've gone on! On the way out we saw Dolphins, pelicans, and sea turtles.... More
