Wouldn’t go with anybody else!
Great times with Tidewater Charters!! We were lucky enough to have both Capt. Robbie and Capt. Tyler on our charter!! Both so knowledgable on navigating the waters of the Chesapeake Bay and the Cobia were plentiful and delicious. Before we could get our items off the boat, our fish were cleaned and filleted and ready for grilling for dinner! Have already booked for next year and highly recommend these two for all occasions!!

Another fantastic trip with Captain Tyler Nonn and Captain Robbie. Cobia were plentiful and the reds we’re giants. The best tackle, awesome boat and the fishing knowledge these guys share has the recipe for yet another trip of a lifetime. Can’t wait to do it again.
