Your adventure starts on The Provider. Apart from being a top-class vessel, this 46’ Buddy Harris Custom Carolina offshore sport fishing boat also has a rich history. She had the distinct honor of hosting President Jimmy Carter and his family on a fishing trip while he was in office. Today, she’s an extensively restored and powerful boat. She’s powered by a twin 435 HP Volvo TAMD 72A engine and can carry up to 6 guests.

She also has modern, state-of-the-art navigation and fish finding systems. She features a toilet, flybridge, and ice-box. Her classic NC charter boat lines coupled with her stout construction and design make her an extremely seaworthy boat and a soft, comfortable ride. The Provider’s got a huge cockpit layout and a large center fighting chair along with two additional fighting chairs, giving anglers plenty of space to reel in their catch. She’s also equipped with outriggers and downriggers. For any help you might need, be free to turn to the first mate.

A vast choice of fish awaits you. You’ll target Blue and White Marlin, Wahoo, Dolphin, Kingfish, Tilefish, Tuna, Sailfish, and many more. The techniques you can use include bottom fishing, deep sea fishing, trolling, spinning, kite fishing, and jigging. Captain Preston welcomes all kids on his boat and will let you take home whatever fish you catch.

You’re covered for rods, reels, terminal tackle, and licenses. The customary tip for the first mate is 20%. Pack some food and drinks, and hop aboard The Provider.

Provider Sportfishing is dedicated to you and will work hard to make your fishing trip a fun and rewarding experience.
