Riptide Fishing Charters is your key to the finest angling in and around Orange Beach, Alabama. The company is operated by an aggressive fisherman who knows the local waters like the back of his hand. Whether you are an amateur or a seasoned pro, Captain Seth Wilson will take care of you.

Come and enjoy a day of fishing in the sun on the beautiful waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Troll the nearshore waters for King Mackerel, Spanish Mackerel, Redfish, Wahoo, and Tuna. Head to the rock bottom up to 500ft for Snapper and Amberjack. Check the bite in the Gulf for Red Snapper, Grouper, Triggerfish, and who knows what else? If it swims and can bite a hook, the crew will catch it. It’s as simple as that!

Just hop onboard the ‘Rip Tide’, a 45’ Respond custom boat. Her twin 400 HP Detroit Diesel engines will power you to the hottest grounds in the area. The Rip Tide provides plenty of fishing space for up to 18 anglers.

The Rid Tide is fully outfitted with navigational and fish finding electronics, including a Furuno GPS, a fish finder, a VHF radio, and a radar. She features a flybridge to spot any action going on beneath the surface, as well as an air-conditioned cabin. There is also a fighting chair on board for those who are up to a challenge, a toilet for your maximum comfort, and many other professional tools and accessories. All aboard!

If you have a fishing technique you would like to try, just let your captain know. You will be provided with licenses, bait, tackle, and ice. If you have favorite rod and reel, feel free to bring it.

The fish cleaning service and a tip for the deckhand are not included in the price

The Rip Tide is docked at Zekes Marina.

I grew up fishing out of Orange Beach, with all of my spare time being spent on the docks of Sportsman's Marina catching Flounder, White Trout, and Croaker. My hobby later turned into a career, after I spent time charter fishing with some of the greatest captains in the area. I now own and operate the Riptide, a 45' Resmondo that specializes in big fish and family fun!!

Great experience!  Excellent crew.  Caught amberjack, trigger fish and snapper!  Definitely going to use riptide again.  When the action slowed down we moved to other spots and the fishing was on!  Travel between fishing spots was extremely short!  Riptide is definitely a good chioce of charter!
