Alpha Fishing Charters

Alpha Fishing Charters has been running charters out of Pensacola Pass for several years now, making hundreds of anglers happy. Its crew wants to show you what a great time and learning experience a good fishing charter can provide. Captain Devin Cantello and his first mate maintain a very high success rate and will continue to give it their all to put you on the fish. Join them in Pensacola, Florida and have an unforgettable experience on the water!

Your trip starts on a restored 25’ SeaCraft center console that sits up to 6 guests. It’s powered by a 250 HP Suzuki engine and uses all the needed navigation gear uses for efficient and safe movement on the water. The boat features a wireless trolling motor and a cooler to store the beverages and snacks you may want to bring. This is a separate cooler than where your catch will be stored. The boat’s also got a livewell for providing live bait.

Red Snapper, Gag Grouper, Amberjack, Bonito, Triggerfish, and King Mackerel are just some of the species you can chase. You’ll use bottom fishing, trolling, spinning, and jigging to attract them, all using light and heavy tackle. You can keep your catch as well as bring kids aboard.

The crew will supply all bait, tackle, and licensing and will also clean and bag your catch. You’ll also get water but you’re more than welcome to bring other beverages as well as food! Please avoid bringing glass bottles as well as coolers bigger than a lunch box due to keeping boat weight to a minimum. The onboard cooler has plenty of space for your storage needs. When dressing for the trip, please wear shoes with good tread (close toes shoes are not required).

If you’re ready to make some memories, then hop in the boat, she’s all gassed up and ready to go! And don’t forget your cameras!

Member since July 2021
Since the age of 6, Captain Devin has been fishing the Pensacola area. He started as a curious young kid fishing bridges and was taken on several offshore trips as a young boy through family and friends. As time went on, he ventured onto his own boat at the age of 20. Learning the ropes, networking, and getting decent at his hobby drew the captain to the conclusion of turning pleasure into business. He has been fishing these waters his whole life and could never live away from the area.
