Gulf Island Charters – Skiff

Join Gulf Island Charters and Captain Pete for a fun-filled day on the water! Start your adventure in Orange Beach, a place blessed with a year-round fishing season. Capt. Pete has been fishing in this area most of his life, and there’s not a good fishing spot he hasn’t found. Taking a trip with an experienced guide like he is, is the best way to have lots of catch, learn useful tricks, and feel safe on the boat.

Capt. Pete specializes in kid fishing trips where kids can learn to fish in a safe yet fun environment. While most Charter fishing trips on the Gulf Coast are Adult driven, this trip is all about the kids. Due to the nature of fishing, these trips are catch and release. Their fishing trips are designed to introduce your children to saltwater fishing in calm protected waters close to shore. The fish you can expect to catch are Catfish, Croaker, White Trout, and Black Drum.

Shrimping is completely interactive where you will participate in the shrimping process. This is a very educational experience where you will learn about many underwater species. The species you can catch in the net are Shrimp, Stingrays, Crabs, and a wide variety of fish. Bottlenose Dolphins will follow the net and when you retrieve it, they will often follow the net to the boat and remain close, waiting for you to throw them the bi-catch.

You’ll be fishing on his 25’ Caroline skiff center console that runs on a 150 HP Evinrude engine. With a capacity of 6, it’s the perfect vessel for small groups and family trips. The boat is extra wide, so there’s more than enough space for everyone to fish at the same time. A full array of Simrad and Furuno navigation electronics will ensure you’re on the right track during the trip.

Your fishing equipment is covered, so you only need to bring some snacks and drinks. Join Gulf Island Charters and spend a memorable day with your loved ones!

(This boat may be subject to changes and run by Captain Donald Roy as well)
