HANDICAP ACCESSIBLE FISHING CHARTER
Wheels on Deck, Inc.© is an IRS approved non-profit public charity organization that provides exclusive fishing and cruising experiences only for individuals in wheelchairs and their companions in a safe, specialty-equipped and accessible sport-fishing boat, The Bazinga.
Fishing and cruising trips on the Bazinga, originate from the OBX Marina, located in Wanchese, North Carolina. In cooperation with the OBX Marina, all trips aboard the Bazinga include a licensed captain and first mate, who are knowledgeable about the waters and experience fisherman.
The Bazinga, a 43-foot Blackwell Express, is a custom-made boat in North Carolina, known for its seaworthiness in all types of weather conditions. It was chosen for this purpose because it is overall structurally well-suited to provide such specialized, safe fishing trips and excursions. To achieve this purpose, extensive structural renovations were made over a two-year period to the boat's interior in order to accommodate two wheelchairs according to ADA guidelines.
