Coastal Life Charters & Adventures—Pensacola

Coastal Life Charters invites you down to the sandy shores of Pensacola to fish the local waters for big, tasty fish. Captain Michael Conner has been fishing for decades, and knows all the best spots for you, your friends, or your family to fish.

Coastal Life Charters specialize in offering fun, affordable trips. The boat has an enclosed bathroom, and there is no additional person charge of any of Capt. Michael’s trips, making them great for the whole family!

Spend anything from two to eight hours on the water. Fish the bays, inlets, intracoastal waters, and nearshore reefs and wrecks. Target Redfish, Flounder, Trout, Sheepshead, Mangrove Snapper, Red Snapper, King Mackerel, and more.

And it doesn’t all have to be about the fishing. If you’re looking for a family adventure, you can also combine your trip with eco tours. See dolphins and beautiful beaches. On some trips, you can even watch the Blue Angels practicing in the skies above you!

Whatever you do, you can rely on a clean, modern boat with plenty of comforts to keep you all happy throughout the day. Capt. Michael’s 22’ Robalo center console can carry groups of up to six in perfect safety. She has a head for extra convenience on longer trips, and is loaded up with enough equipment to bring even the toughest gamefish to bear.

All Coastal Life Charters adventures come with tackle, bait, lures, licenses, and a cleaning and filleting service for your catch. Just bring your food, drinks, sunscreen, and a cooler to fit all your fish in at the end of the day.
