For a great, affordable day on the water for up to six anglers of any experience, including families with kids, a trip on the Gecko with Captain Ernie Doshier is a top choice on Ocracoke Island. The 46-foot Carolina sportfisher offers a swift trip to the Gulf Stream for all-day adventures that include not only catching fish like tuna, mahi mahi and billfish, but also viewing the wonders of the Gulf Stream, such as flying fish, birds, dolphins and possibly even whales. If you prefer something other than a full-day trip, half-day and custom trips are also available. Captain Doshier is an Outer Banks native and former Coast Guardsman with more than 30 years of experience on the water, so you know you’ll be in good hands. He and the mate provide everything you need for a great day on the water, including bait, tackle, fishing licenses and instruction, if needed. All you need to bring is your own snacks and drinks and get ready for the time of your life.
