Welcome aboard Heyboy II Charters in beautiful Orange Beach, Alabama where our #1 goal is to make your fishing experience one to remember for years to come! On the Heyboy II we specialize in small group charters carrying 1 to 6 passengers, this allows us to cater to you with the personal courteous attention you deserve. So bring your family and friends, put your lines in the water and lets make this a trip of a lifetime.
What’s included in the price?
Everything is included in the price except tips/fish cleaning for your deckhand which is 15 to 20% on the tip and .30 per pound on the fish cleaning. This is the customary on all boats, your deckhand is your helper for the day and this is how he makes his living.
What do we need to bring?
Please bring sunglasses, sunscreen, camera, a iced down cooler full of hydrating drinks and groceries. We have a green egg grill on the boat so please let us know if you want to grill something and sometimes we have a couple of things to throw on the grill too! Get ready to have great day on the water with family and friends!
What are the amenities on the boat?
The Heyboy II is air-conditioned / heated with a galley kitchen, microwave, and an area to sit. There is also a head (a bathroom for you landlubbers.)
Do we need to buy fishing licenses?
All bait, tackle and licenses are furnished. Just bring your strong arm and your bright shining faces!
What about bad weather?
What about it we have oars and lifeboats—- just kidding ! We never take people charter fishing in rough weather. We want this to be fun and bad weather is not fun! The trip will be cancelled for weather at the captain’s discretion, remember we have a 100% charter safety record we know when it is too rough to go!! No charges when the captain calls a weather a weather day.
Hot Tip: If you schedule you deep sea fishing trip at the beginning of your vacation you may be able to reschedule later in the week if you get a bad weather day.
What if I get sick?
Have you ever heard of chumming? Seriously though, never go down inside the boat because people tend to feel worse when they get closed in on the water. Stay outside with the fresh air and the horizon in your sight. Bring ginger ale and drink some the night before, a light breakfast also helps. If you think you may get sick but are not sure there are many over the counter motion sickness medicine and you could check with your family physician ahead of time for some of the newer medications. If you can’t stand it any longer and want to come in early just let Captain Wynn know. Do not be embarrassed this happens! The captain and deckhand know what to do for you so let them know!
How old do my kids have to be?
Fishing can be for people from cradle to grave, however we would like them old enough to enjoy it . If they can hold a rod they are old enough to go. We love to take kids and see their excitement as they reel in their fish. We love to teach them the proper way to fish and start them on what we hope will be a lifelong love of the water and fishing. Also because kids have no preconceived notions of what to do they listen better , learn faster and usually outfish everyone on the boat! Believe me when I say your kids will always remember this fishing trip and the quality time spent with their family. Now days it seldom happens that a family spends uninterrupted time like this together. It is truly a privelege to be a part of this unique family time.
