Waverunner Sportfishing

Waverunner Sportfishing is your ticket to an amazing day on the water! Join Captain Pat Foster, who’s been in the industry for over 40 years and knows every hidden gem of the area. He has many tournament wins under his belt and he’s a true Marlin fishing expert.

The Waverunner is a 53’ custom built Bobby Sullivan boat. This sportfishing boat offers both inshore and offshore fishing trips for up to 6 people. The boat includes top-notch fishing gear, a restroom, beds, refrigerator, AC/Heat, and 660 HP twin Cummins diesel engines, which will be sure to get you out to the fishing grounds quickly and safely. If you want to blast some music, the boat has Bluetooth stereo and satellite radio.

On the Inshore trips, you will mainly go trolling, sometimes Shark fishing and chumming, as well as sight casting. You’re most likely to target Cobia, Spanish Mackerel, Red Drum, Bluefish, and Black Drum. Offshore trips are the opportunity to land some of those fast-as-lightning fish! You’ll target White Marlin, Blue Marlin, Sailfish, Yellowfin Tuna, Big-eye Tuna, Mahi Mahi, and bottom fish (Tilefish, Black Seabass, Rosefish). You’ll mainly troll but you can also deep drop or try bottom fishing.

The crew will provide your fishing equipment and cover the fishing license, while you need to bring your snacks and drinks for the day. There’s a catch cleaning service at the marina, so you can have your fish filleted for a small fee.

Waverunner Sportfishing runs their trips year round. Secure your spot on time and don’t miss out the chance to reel in the catch of a lifetime!

Captain Pat has been fishing since the ’80s. He began his career working as First Mate, did a lot of tournaments fishing, and won some awards at the Virginia Beach Billfish Tournament, and Big Rock. He is a Marlin fishing professional and enjoys helping people catch this prestigious fish. He is driven by a passion for this job and he makes sure that every guest on his boat is safe. He only starts his trips if it’s safe and when there is something to catch. He enjoys when people have fun and when they are happy with the catch – that’s why he has a lot of returning customers!
