Stormy Petrel Charters
Fishing and Cruises, Hatteras, North Carolina
Captain Brian Patteson
Captain Brian Patteson was born in Lynchburg, VA in 1968 and is owner and operator of the Stormy Petrel II and the Skua. Brian has been fishing professionally off the NC Outer Banks since 1995, and has been a resident of Hatteras Island since 1999. Prior to obtaining his USCG license (Master to 100 Gross Tons), he spent several years as a mate on the decks of local charter boats, including most notably the Qualifier with Capt. Fin Gaddy and the Hatteras Fever II with Capt. Buddy Hooper. Brian has also amassed considerable knowledge about the seabirds and marine mammals of the Western North Atlantic, having spent many hundreds of days leading pelagic birding trips off Cape Hatteras since the late 1980s.
We are fortunate to have a number of highly experienced part time crew members, most of whom are also licensed captains.
