Frequently Asked Questions

These are some of our most frequently asked questions. If you have more questions e-mail us or use our contact form.
What should I bring with me?
We suggest bringing your phone/camera, polarized sunglasses, white-soled tennis or boat shoes, sunscreen, hat, and a large cooler to transport your catch home. If you are prone to seasickness, you'll want to remember the Dramamine, patch or some other remedy that works for you! You'll also need to bring any food and beverages you'll want during the day, we have cooler space for ice and your supplies. We do recommend plenty of water so you can stay hydrated. We have bean bags and bench couches inside the cabin for four comfort. A beach towel or some type of cover up is sometimes useful for the ride out. You can find more general information here.

What should I wear?
The Dancin Outlaw is air conditioned and heated. However, you will need to dress for the appropriate season. Shorts, t-shirts and bathing suits in the summer and warmer clothes in the cooler months. A light rain jacket is never a bad idea along with a long sleeve t-shirt or even light jacket for the mornings in the early morning spring and summer hours. It's better to have something and not need it than not having it and wanting it.

What about seasickness?
Eat light. Get a good nights sleep. If you are going to take any form of medication to combat the seasickness, do so BEFORE you get to the dock. These medicines work best if they are in your system at least 30 minutes to an hour before you start activities that might cause seasickness.

What time do I need to be on the dock?
5:15 am. We normally leave the dock at 5:30 am and usually return about 4:30 pm for full day trips.

If I'm from out of town, where should I stay?
There are several nearby hotels. We suggest the Quality Inn, Fisherman's Inn, Hampton Inn, or the Holiday Inn Express.

Can I bring more than six people on the trip?
No. We can, however, coordinate with other professional boats to accommodate larger parties.

Do I need a fishing license?
No. The Dancin Outlaw has a blanket license that covers everyone.

Can I bring my own equipment?
While the Dancin Outlaw is has a full range of gear and top-of-the-line tackle, if you have something you would like to pull, or a special rod - such as a fly rod, you are more than welcome to bring it.

Is the Dancin' Outlaw available for tournaments?
Yes. The Dancin Outlaw is available for all tournaments including the NC Governors Cup Tournament.

Do I need to know how to fish?
Absolutely not. The crew of the Dancin Outlaw will help you with all aspects of fishing.

I have seen other boats advertised at lower rates. Why should I fish on the Dancin' Outlaw?
While trying to keep our prices as low as possible in this trying economy, we feel like its worth it to charge what it takes to be able to sometimes travel that extra 20 miles and provide top-of-the-line equipment to make the days catch a worthwhile investment. We are a professional boat and crew. This is what we do for a living, not as a weekend hobby like some boats doing this more for a hobby.

What other activities or events does the Crystal Coast offer?
While we have some of the best fishing on the East coast, we are also known as a world class diving destination. History abounds in the Crystal Coast with Fort Macon State Park and Beaufort just minutes away. We also have wild horses on Shackleford, the Cape Lookout Lighthouse, lots of great restaurants and plenty of shopping.
