Waymaker Charters - Gratitude (22' Pontoon)

Waymaker Charters offers you sunset cruises and fishing trips on the beautiful Albemarle Sound. It’s got everything you need to catch a variety of prized species and have fun on the water. Whether you’re looking to fish, crab, search for dolphins, or just enjoy a day out on the water, Waymaker Charters got you covered! Their pontoon will provide a comfortable trip for your party and all the trips are family-friendly and great for the kids. Come aboard and enjoy a true fishing adventure on the Outer Banks of North Carolina!

You’ll fish with Captain Ryan from a 22’ Sweetwater pontoon boat that has room for up to 6 people. It’s powered by a 115 HP Suzuki engine, uses a fishfinder system for navigation, and features an ice-box to store your fish and drinks.

You and the captain will use spinning on light tackle to attract your prey. The species you’ll target are Speckled Trout, Sheepshead, Flounder, Redfish, and Black Drum. You can choose whether you’ll keep your catch and take it home or just release it back into the water.

Waymaker Charters will provide you with all the fishing gear, licenses, as well as fish cleaning and filleting. The gear includes rods, reels, tackle, live bait, as well as lures. All you need to bring is your favorite food and drinks.

If you’re looking for an ocean adventure, check out our other boat, Revival Fishing, also listed here on Fishing Booker.

Come visit the Outer Banks and have a memorable time fishing with Waymaker Charters!
