Orange Beach Fish charter services

Capt. Tom Ard Orange Beach, AL Incorporated Licensed Insured

Water Dog Charters is family owned and operated, geared to chartering deep sea fishing trips from the experienced angler to first-time families for over 30 years. They are a child-friendly charter company that encourages taking children and exposing them to the outdoor wonders the Gulf of Mexico has to offer.

Relax and enjoy your trip aboard the ‘Water Dog’, a spacious 38’ Crusader. She has a nice and comfortable enclosed cabin with cold air-conditioning and clean restroom. There are bunks downstairs for those who will need a nap after all the fish catching action they endure!

The Water Dog comes powered by a 300 HP Cummins C-series and can comfortably accommodate up to 6 anglers. She is also rigged with modern navigational and fish finding electronics to save your time while searching for a big one.

Your trip will be targeting species such as Red Snapper, Wahoo, Spanish Mackerel, Vermilion Snapper, King Mackerel, Black or Scamp Grouper and possibly some types of Sharks. You will be mainly concentrating on light and heavy tackle trolling and bottom fishing.

The crew will take care of everything you will need for your deep sea fishing adventure! They provide bait, license, and tackle for you and your guests. All you would need to bring is whatever food and drinks you will need for the trip.

Book your adventure now and let Water Dog Charters take you on your trip of a lifetime!
