What People Are Saying About Carolina Explorer:

"Thanks again for the great fishing trip you took us on July 6th on our vacation. The morning was so beautiful and we had so much fun catching the red drums and other fishes. Last weekend we had some friends and family over and we cooked all the fish. Needless to say it was a huge success, now everybody wants to come to fish in NC after seeing our photos and eating the tasty meal.

Hope we see you again soon, take care and our regards to Charlie as well!""

"Captain Robert, 

Thanks again for a great trip.  Philip has not stopped talking about the big fish that he caught and wants to show everyone his picture with the fish.  After we left the dock, we drove home after heading back to the condo for a quick shower and packing up our stuff.  Philip did not make it a mile before he fell asleep; however, when we rolled into Winston Salem around 10:30 he was wide eyed and wanting to cook the fish that he caught.  Fish was delightful and the whole family enjoyed.  Hope to make this at least an annual trip.

Thanks again,

-October 27th
