·         USCG OUPV Licensed 2004-present

·         Current First Aid and CPR Certified 

In 1996, after serving with the N.C. Highway Patrol for 13 years in Fayetteville, I transferred to Brunswick County to be near the ocean that I have always loved. My love of the ocean and all of its wonders led me to become a PADI certified scuba diver in 1991. Wanting to learn more and to be a safer diver I achieved the level of Advanced Open Water Diver and then became a PADI certified Rescue Diver as well. I have always loved fishing and boating and in 2004 I earned my USCG Captains License and extended my training in First Aid and CPR. In the same year, I retired from the Highway Patrol and began fulfilling a lifelong dream to pursue a career as a Captain. I really enjoy carrying people out on the ocean in pursuit of their dream fish. I especially enjoy fishing with children and love to watch their faces light up when the big one bites. I do my best to insure a safe and enjoyable trip as well as one that educates people to the wonders of our local waters.

Capt. Zach Faulkner

I love to hunt, fish, and participate in all outdoor sports.  I began saltwater fishing in my early teens fishing the back waters for flounder and trout.  I began working at OIFC during summers while in college and eventually earned my captains license in 2008.  I worked as a mate and captain while charter fishing at OIFC.  I have been fortunate to work and learn from many talented fishermen at OIFC.  I found that I have a love for offshore fishing.  I began tournament king mackerel fishing 4 years ago when we upgraded to our present boat.   I enjoy the competition and challenges of tournament fishing.  I am currently working for Stevens Marine Towing in Charleston, SC.

  • United States Coast Guard certified Captain 2014-present
  • CPR and First Aid certified

Capt. Brad has been a captain with the Ocean Isle Fishing Center for 3 years.  He is the entertainer of the team.  He can make friends with a fence post, and it is pretty much a guarantee you will be laughing the entire trip.  But, don't take his fun-loving demeanor as a replacement for his fishing skill or intensity.  Capt. Brad is a fish killer, and he loves it.
