C & R Charters

Based out of Orange Beach, C & R Charters offers a clear run at the Gulf’s deepest waters. Spend between 6 and 36 hours on the water and fulfill every serious angler’s fantasy. You’ll hit the wrecks, while also exploring the deep spots for some pelagic beasts. Get your fish on here and show what you’re really made of!

Captain Chris Willour has over 50 years of experience fishing and promises the adventure of a lifetime. Together with his first mate, he’ll give you all the support you need to land that catch of your dreams.

The 65’ Hatteras is truly a thing of beauty. Step aboard and enter a world of luxury. She features an air-conditioned cabin with plenty of bunks, bathrooms, a galley, TV, and multimedia system. Up to 6 guests are welcome aboard to make use of these amenities that you couldn’t have imagined.

Fitted with outriggers, it is also a serious sportfishing vessel. Capt. Chris will set you up with the latest Penn and Shimano rods and reels and you’ll be ready to settle into the fighting chair when you feel the bite of a monster.

Fishing far out in the Gulf is not for the faint-hearted. You’ll be up against some of the ocean’s biggest, most prized fish. Along the wrecks, you’ll target monster-sized Groupers and Snappers, along with Kingfish, Sharks, Spanish Mackerel, Cobia and Amberjacks.

Hit the deeper waters, and it’s a different kettle of fish altogether. Marlin rub shoulders with Swordfish, Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, and many more. You’ll need to bring your A-game to land any one of these tough-fighting monsters, so get ready for an incredible fight.

Capt. Chris is happy to pick you up free of charge anywhere within a 30-mile radius, so there’s pretty much nothing for you to do. Just make sure to dress appropriately to protect against the elements, bring some drinks and snacks aboard, and settle in for a thrilling day’s fishing. You won’t believe your eyes aboard C & R Charters.

I have been fresh and saltwater fishing my entire life. When I retired from being a pipefitter I purchased a 65' Hatteras. My wife and I formed the charter company. Fishing is a passion for us. We want to share this with everyone. For me, there is no greater joy to watch someone's face light up when they hook up with their first monster. First and foremost I am a fisherman, then a captain.
