Great Escape Charters

(107) Going fast!

Great Escape Charters are based in Orange Beach, Alabama and provide first class fishing trips. Their experienced crew has been fishing the Gulf of Mexico waters for over 20 years and possess exceptional knowledge. They offer exciting offshore fishing trips and love providing all of their guests with an experience of a lifetime.

You will head out on their 32’ Luhrs sport fishing boat, which comes powered by twin 330 HP Yanmar engines to get you to the action in no time. This beautiful vessel includes a flybridge with cover, as well as a full set of navigational equipment.

The spacious deck can accommodate up to six anglers, and the boat is rigged with a fighting chair, outriggers, center rigger and live bait tank to ensure you are prepared for a day full of fishing action. For your comfort, the galley is air-conditioned and features a toilet, shower, and a kitchen with refrigerator.

Your adventure with Great Escape Charters in the Gulf of Mexico will begin by throwing out the trolling lures onto the water as you break out of Perdido Pass, to target Kings, Bonita, Wahoo, Spanish Mackerel, and other migratory species. You will then run up to 20 miles offshore, depending on the fish bite, and when you arrive at the fishing grounds your deckhand will have you baited up and ready to fish.

Great Escape Charters will give you the opportunity to fish for many different reef species, and as you return to the dock, the trolling lures will once again be set up to hopefully catch a couple of last bites. When you arrive at the dock, your deckhand will unload and hang your fish for pictures, which the crew will fillet and bag it for your enjoyment!
