                 Have you ever wished you had a fully rigged boat while vacationing on the Outer Banks?

  Unable or don't want to trailer your own boat from home to the Outer Banks? 

 We understand your desire to go boating and fishing on the "World Class" waters of the Outer  Banks......Great Offshore, Inshore and Inland fishing Is just off your doorstep!

Largemouth and Striped Bass are just a few of the game fish caught by anglers

fishing the open waters of the Atlantic Ocean, our Sound's and Inland Waterways.

We began our rental service because the Outer Banks needed the same "at-your-dock"  boat  rental  and  full  service  outfitter  offered  throughout  Florida  and  the  Florida Keys.

 With assistance by an old friend & owner of an established boat rental in the Florida Keys,  "BigWave Boat Rentals" was created!

         and  resident  anglers  a  fully  equipped  and  professionally  maintained  rental 

     boat  that  we  trailer  to  your  location,  launch  it  and  deliver  it  to  your  Sound-side

            home  with  an  adequate  private  boat  dock  or  a  slip  in  a  nearby  marina.
