One of our top picks in Pensacola Beach. Captain Rick Barberi owns and operates Marlin Hunter Fishing Charters out of Penascola Beach Marina. With an extremely versatile vessel that can fish equally well both inshore and offshore, he targets a wide variety of both inshore and offshore species from Redfish to Blue Marlin.
The Marlin Hunter is a 32 ft Cape Horn center console that is perfect for nearshore and offshore fishing. The boat’s relatively small size and dual Yamaha engines allow it to travel extremely quickly to the offshore fishing grounds, while keeping it economical in terms of fuel consumption. While other boats might spend a large portion of the trip travelling to the fish, The Marlin Hunter can reach them in under an hour, giving you, the customer, the maximum time fishing during your charter trip. The boat is complete with up-to-date electronics, outriggers, and a head to give you the most comfortable and productive charter trip possible.
Marlin Hunter Fishing Charters specialize in fishing for pelagic species such as Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Tuna and Marlin. They also bottom fish for Red Snapper, Amberjacks, Triggerfish and Grouper, among other species. During the Winter they tend to remain closer to the shore, mainly targeting Redifsh, Flounder, Trout, Sheepshead and Snapper.
Captain Rick has lived and fished in Pensacola all his life, for nearly 40 years. On every charter trip he strives to work with his guests and give them the best experience possible. His passion for fishing and wealth of knowledge about the Gulf make his charter trips truly memorable.

This was by far the best charter fishing trip I’ve taken. Captain Rick not only put us on some fish but was a very professional and genuine good person. Me and my family have been coming to Florida for years for summer vacation and this fishing trip certainly made our trip more enjoyable this year. Now with our family growing with each new grandchild, we are happy to have found a fishing charter that Is certain to become a family outing year after year! Life is too short to hesitate spending time with family. If you want to make some lasting memories with family or friends, don’t let this charter pass you by- you will not be disappointed. Thanks Captain Rick for a great experience- we will be booking Marlin Hunter Fishing Charters again soon.
