About Us

 

The Barbarino

The Barbarino is a 37’ Topaz Express Sport Fisherman.  Topaz yachts are known as “battlewagons” for their sturdy hulls and seaworthiness.  She is powered by twin 3208 CAT diesel engines with turbochargers and has a cruising speed of 20 knots. The Barbarino sports a generous size fishing deck and will easily accommodate 6 for charter fishing. The cabin is fully   air-conditioned/heated with a full head, refrigerator, microwave, and cushioned seating/bunks. Onboard we are outfitted with all of the essential safety equipment. 

 

Captain: Dan Harris

My family has been at Carolina Beach since 1939 when my grandfather built a beach cottage that we still use today.  While attending college at UNC Wilmington, and off and on for many years after graduation, I worked as a mate on Head and Charter boats out of Carolina Beach.   By using my own vessels as well as by booking charters with other captains, I have continued to fish on a regular basis. I’ve always loved to fish offshore, and I want to take that passion and become the best captain possible.  I am also a certified NAUI diver and have taken many dives both offshore and inland. 

 

First Mate: James Harris

I grew up on the water and have spent time at Carolina Beach my whole life.  Fishing and the outdoors are my passion.  I have fished offshore for years with my Dad, so I’m experienced with all aspects of what it takes to fish offshore successfully.   I can also clean and package all your fish for a small fee.   I am looking forward to this next chapter of my life on the ocean.

4 Hour Trip

4 Hour fishing trips are usually a trolling trip within 1 to 2 miles from the beach.  The most popular trip is trolling for Spanish Mackerel.  If the fish are there, it’s hot and heavy.  Sometimes one might catch a King Mackerel on this trip, also Bluefish are common.  A 10-mile bottom fishing trip can be done in four hours also.  Black Sea Bass, Snappers and Sharks are usually the target, occasionally a Mahi or King Mackerel when the water is warm.
