The Gulf of Mexico can be very challenging to get offshore if you’re in a small vessel. We offer a large and comfortable boat capable of handling offshore waters and keeping your family safe!

You’ll be fishing aboard our 40ft Seahunter, the largest center console charter vessel leaving out of Pensacola Pass, powered by triple 350 HP Yamaha engines. The boat is set up for offshore fishing, so it’ll take you to the fishing spots quickly, giving you more time to enjoy the action. There are navigational electronics to help put you on the fish, as well as snorkeling equipment if you want to enjoy the underwater world.

We bring our tournament experience to our charters to target your fish of a lifetime. Over the years, we have won multiple fishing tournaments and won the ska championship in 2017. Our tournament mindset keeps us hungry to show our clients the fishery Pensacola has to offer due to our continued success. From family members to the serious angler, everyone always has fun. Check out our numerous FishingBooker reviews.

The crew offers tons of different trips, making sure to tailor each adventure to your exact needs. Depending on where you want to go and how much time you want to spend fishing, you can choose between deep sea fishing, Shark fishing, offshore fishing, or inshore and nearshore fishing.

Some of the species you may target include Grouper, Snapper, King Mackerel, Sailfish, Amberjack, and many others. The Southbound Tournament team covers it all, from meat hauls to catch and release.
