A Whiptail Adventure

A Whiptail Adventure offers incredible sport fishing experience on the waters out of South Portland, Maine. Join their experienced captain and head out in pursuit of Groundfish and Shark. Plus, there is also a great chance to spot a whale on your way to the fishing trip!

Step onboard the ‘Whiptail’, a 27’ Sailfish 2660 center console. She is a clean, seaworthy fishing machine with twin 150 HP Yamaha engines. The Whiptail can comfortably accommodate up to four anglers. She was built with comfort in mind. The Whiptail is outfitted with top-notch navigational and fish finding electronics, as well as other professional accessories. There is also a toilet on board - a much-needed thing when spending your day on the water. The Whiptail is ready to provide you with a fabulous trip!

Your day with A Whiptail Adventure will begin when you cruise out of Spring Point Marina. The captain’s fishing spots are located 12-35 miles offshore. On your way there and back, you will pass historic forts and lighthouses. Just sit back, relax, and get ready for an unforgettable experience.

Spend your day targeting various types of Sharks, including Mako, Thresher, Porbeagle, and Blue Shark. Test your angling skills and fish for Haddock, Halibut, Pollack, and Cod. And if you’re after an ultimate offshore experience and want to catch them all, book a Combo trip. Don’t miss the season!

All trips come inclusive with everything you need to make a great catch possible. You will be provided with rods, reels, tackle, bait, and a license for your party. The captain will send your catch home cleaned and filleted, ready to go straight into the frying pan. Just bring your own non-alcoholic drinks, some snacks, and the desire to catch fish!
