Welcome to Reliance Charters!

Reliance Fishing Charters was launched in April 2004. Captain John P. Canning, Jr. has been fishing the offshore waters of Hatteras, North Carolina for years. He knows exactly where and how to catch the fish you are after to provide an Outer Banks fishing charter experience of a lifetime! We offer the perfect Outer Banks fishing charter experience for anglers searching for saltwater game fish like Sailfish, Dolphin, Tuna, Kingfish, Marlin and Wahoo – which are just a few of the possible species available!

Reliance Fishing Charters offers a wide range of trips to cater to each angler’s desires, and we support fishermen of all skill sets. Our dedication to delivering exciting sportfishing action, along with a relaxing frame of mind, provides visiting and local anglers the opportunity to fish for deep sea species without having to kill your budget.
