Message to Topsail Guide Users

Thank you for taking the time to visit my page. I hope to share my passion for Topsail and life on the water with you. In my time guiding, I have found that it’s not just about the fishing, but also about the overall experience and the relationships you foster with the great people who come to visit Topsail. I will do everything I can to make your fishing or cruise experience as memorable as possible.

Thanks, and I hope to see you out on the water!

All the best and tight lines!
Captain Jim

Business Description

Book your saltwater experience with Blue Heron Guide Service, providing inshore and nearshore fishing trips and eco-tour cruises. Blue Heron offers inshore charters targeting red drum, speckled trout, black drum, sheepshead, and flounder. When in season, we also target nearshore species such as Bonito, false albacore, king mackerel, and Spanish mackerel. Maybe fishing isn’t your thing and you’d rather just go for a relaxing cruise? We can do that too. Cruise the waters of Topsail Island, Lea Island, and Figure 8 Island taking in the sights and discussing the area’s rich history all while searching for dolphins, marine birds, rays, and maybe even a sea turtle or two. You will do this aboard a 23-foot center console bay boat that comfortably seats up to six passengers and has all the latest electronics. The choice is all yours.
