Pirate Flag Charters And Tours

At Pirate Flag Charters and Tours, they strive to not only put you on fish, but to put a smile on your face! Captain Dallas King wants you and your family to make lasting memories and want to come back year after year. He’s been fishing Florida waters his whole life and is the fifth generation outdoors-man in his family.

Capt. Dallas has been guiding out of Crystal River for over five years and prides himself on his people skills. He wants nothing more than for his customers to have fun! Most customers have turned into life long friends and that is the way he treats every client that steps on the boat.

You’ll be fishing on a true "do it all" boat, a 22’ Nautic Star center console. Offshore, this boat handles rougher water like a boat twice its size and can run in the shallows in less than 9 inches of water! With a classic V-haul up front to a tunnel in the back, this vessel gets it done all while keeping customers dry and comfortable.

Pirate Flag Charters and Tours loves every species of fish that swims in Crystal River’s waters. Capt. Dallas spent years figuring out the best tactics to catch these fish. Snook, Redfish, Trout, Grouper, Tripletail, and the list goes on! During your trip, you’ll target whatever gets you the best catch chances, considering the season.

Pirate Flag Charters and Tours strives to be the best guide service you can have on the Nature Coast for you and your family. Capt. Dallas wants to share his "office" with you and show you everything Crystal River has to offer. Join him for your next fishing trip!
