                       About  BigWave  Boat  Rentals


                 Ever wished you had a fully rigged fishing boat while vacationing on the Outer Banks?

  Unable 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! 

   Blue Marlin,  Sailfish,  Bluefin  and Yellowfin Tuna,  Cobia,  Redfish,  Flounder, 

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

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

We began this rental service because the Outer Banks needed the same "at-your-dock"

 boat  rental  with  outfitter  services  that  are  offered  in  Florida  and  the  Florida Keys.

 With assistance by a friend and owner of a well 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  private  slip  in  a  nearby  marina.
