Case Study:

Coastal Carolina Guide Fishing Charters

Coastal Carolina Guide specializes in charter fishing in the Emerald Isle, Swansboro, Sneads Ferry, and Topsail areas.

Southeastern North Carolina offers the inshore angler excellent opportunities for light tackle saltwater fishing, and Captain Bateman is an expert at helping his clients find the best fish.


Owner and Captain Walter Bateman needed a way to advertise his adventures and set his services apart in an area where the competition is fierce.

In coastal North Carolina, charters are plentiful, and cruises set sail every day, and Captain Bateman understood that a sleek, professional website would be critical to Coastal Carolina Guide’s success.


An organized yet eye-catching layout.

The team at Sage Island accomplished this goal by building Coastal Carolina Guide, a simple yet attention-grabbing website that fulfilled all his business’s marketing needs.

It includes an animated header with vibrant images that capture the area’s coastal feel, a brief welcome message loaded with SEO-friendly keywords to help customers connect with the company. 

A focus on informative details. 

The bottom of the page contains all the information necessary to book a trip, including services and rates and fishing report. There is also a landing page specifically dedicated to this information as well.

Keeping the site simple, and essential details easily accessible makes booking charters effortless for clients eager to get out on the water.

Original photos for a unique and personal look and feel. 

The clients are the stars of the charters, and Coastal Carolina Guide had plenty of fantastic photos to prove it. Our team took advantage of these resources, using large, high-quality images throughout the site to illustrated, clearly and beautifully, all that this charter service has to offer.

These photos tell a visual story that stays with the user as they navigate the site.


In the end, building this website for our client was effortless and fun. Coastal Carolina Guide fishing charters is definitely a catch; all Sage Island had to do was create the bait.
