Fairwater II

Fairwater II Charters is exactly what the doctor ordered for anyone who has the itch to fish the Gulf Shores and Orange Beach areas. If you are looking for a fully customized fishing experience on your next holiday, you have found the right place.

Enjoy a lot of artificial reefs, cruise the coast and head up to 15 miles offshore. Most of the trips will most likely wear you out battling big and hard-fighting fish so get ready to have a nice light tackle and live bait workout.

All this fantastic sport fishing is available aboard the ‘Fairwater II’, a 40’ Sea Harvester walk-around boat. Her twin 330 HP Cummins engines will power you to the hottest grounds in the area and the top-notch electronics will help you locate the fish.

The Fairwater II is rigged with everything you need to make a great catch possible. As well as that, you will find plenty of space for up to 18 anglers, a flybridge to take in all the beauty of the surrounding areas, a comfortable restroom, and an air-conditioned cabin.

You will be able to catch-and-release Amberjack and Red Snapper year-round, target Barracuda, Cobia, and Red Grouper, go for Kingfish and Triggerfish and get your hands on Mangrove Snapper. Trolling, jigging, and bottom fishing will be your techniques for the day.

All trips come with quality rods, reels, and tackle, as well as lures, bait, and fishing licenses.
