Cruising out of Orange Beach, Alabama, Wahoo Watersports offers fun, family-friendly fishing adventures on the waters of the Gulf Coast. With a crew made up of third-generation local fishermen, this operation knows how to get the best out of the local waters. Come join them for an experience you won’t forget!

Your trip will take place aboard “Dark Thirty,” a spacious 30’ saltwater fishing boat. Originally built in 2000, it was restored in 2011 and is fully rigged with navigational electronics, including a GPS, a VHF radio, a fishfinder, and a radar.

This clean, smooth-riding boat has an enclosed toilet for your maximum comfort on the water, as well as a flybridge to give you the upper hand when looking for fish. There’s plenty of space for up to 6 anglers to fish together, so it’s perfect for a family and friends getaways.

Your trip will take you fishing up to 9 miles offshore around the reefs and wrecks, bottom fishing and trolling for a wide range of species. You will target tasty bottom fish such as Red Snapper, Grouper, and Triggerfish, as well as exciting pelagics like King Mackerel, Mahi Mahi, and Cobia.

You don’t need to worry about bringing tackle or gear – the crew will provide everything for you. Expect rods, reels, live bait, and lures, as well as ice for your catch and fishing licenses for you and your group.

If you decide to keep your catch, the crew will clean and fillet it for you at the end of the trip, so that you could take it home with you and store the freezer or have for dinner later. As well as that, you can feel free to bring your own snacks and drinks with you. A 20% gratuity for the deckhand is appreciated. 

Looking for local knowledge and a top-notch boat? Join Wahoo Watersports and get your own catch of the day!
