Welcome to Reliance Charters!

Reliance Charters was started in 1998 by Captain John P. Canning Jr. who has been fishing the waters off Hatteras for years. He knows exactly where to catch fish and provide you with a great Outer Banks fishing experience. Reliance Charters includes all licenses, bait, tackle, and ice. We offer 1/2 day in-shore charter trips to cater to each anglers desires, and we support anglers of all skill sets.

Our dedication to delivering exciting fishing action, along with a relaxed frame of mind, provides visiting and local anglers the opportunity to fish for a variety of species without having to kill their budget.

NEW FOR 2023!


Embark on a 2-hour crabbing trip with us into the waters of the Pamlico Sound, where you’ll be pulling crab, sorting and baiting commercial crab pots, and best of all – the catch is yours to take home for dinner! Trips will be booked from May 15 to October 1.
