Welcome to Paradise Shores Adventures. We are a family-owned business that offers hunting and fishing guide services on the Neuse River, Pamlico Sound and the surrounding areas.

Paradise Shores Adventures was founded by Wayne Dunbar, a Pamlico County waterman with over 40 years of experience working on the water. The business is now owned and operated by his son Blake Dunbar. Blake was born and raised in Pamlico County and grew up fishing the Neuse River and Pamlico Sound waters. He has over 20 years of experience fishing and hunting in and around Pamlico County. When Blake isn’t guiding you’ll find him working those same waters, providing for his family as a commercial fisherman.

With a combined 60 plus years of experience and local knowledge that few others possess, Paradise Shores Adventures can provide an unrivaled guided experience.
