The vessel is equipped to take you both inshore and offshore. Orange Beach has long been known for its awesome fishery, and the crew can’t wait to introduce you to some of the finest offshore angling you’ll ever experience.

Come check out the bite fishing colorful reefs, wrecks, and even floating oil rigs. Just a few miles out, you can find Red Snapper (when in season), Triggerfish, various types of Grouper, Beeliner, Cobia, and King Mackerel. Spend a night on board and test your angling skills when searching for Marlin, Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, and even Swordfish.

All trips come with professional gear, tackle, bait, ice, and fishing licenses. You’ll be using top-of-the-line Shimano reels and Esky custom rods. You will only need to bring your own food, drinks, and appropriate clothes.

Please add a 18-20% cash tip for deckhand and come enjoy a day of fishing in the sun on the beautiful waters of the Gulf of Mexico.
