Rock Bottom Charters is a premier fishing charter in the Pensacola/ Navarre area. With countless satisfied customers, Captain Doug Adams provides fishing trips for all the family to remember. He offers both inshore and offshore trips, fishing for species such as Redfish, Trout, and Flounder, as well as Spanish Mackerel, Red Snapper, and Cobia.

You will be fishing aboard a smart 24 ft Skeeter boat that has a T-Top for shade and comfort. With plenty of space to fish, the boat is powered by a 300 HP Yamaha engine that gives it a maximum speed of 45 knots, meaning you won’t waste any time getting to the fish. The boat is equipped with everything you need for a successful trip, with a Minn Kota trolling motor, 10 ft Power Pole anchoring system, Yeti 125 Fish Box, and Lowrance electronics. There is also a Yeti 65 cooler on board to keep your drinks and food cool throughout the trip.

Captain Doug Adams has over 35 years experience fishing the local area, meaning he has plenty of knowledge and patience when teaching people the techniques he has learnt over the years. Children are particularly welcome on board, and can fish for free as extra passengers.As the captain has children of his own, he knows how important it is to keep young anglers entertained with steady action on the boat, and he enjoys watching the same passion for fishing he has had since childhood grow in them.

I have a passion for fishing and sharing this passion with others. I fish both inshore and offshore. I love to have kids on my boat and teaching them not only about the fish they catch, as well as the water ways they are fishing and the local history.

Went 7 mi offshore this morning with our two kids, age 7 and 10. Boat, gear and captain were top-notch. We consistently saw action, reeling in cobia, snapper, and triggerfish, and saw porpoises up really close. Much fun, would definitely book again!

It was my daughter’s and wife’s first time out on a boat and Capt Doug skilled piloting gave us nice ride on the little bit of chop we had. The bite was slow but Capt Doug put us on some fish we caught an assortment of fish and we had a blast and now my wife is okay with us getting a boat.

Had a great time out fishing with my 7 year old daughter, sister and Parents.  We hooked a shark and fought it for 2 1/2 hours before having to let it go because non of us could fight any longer!  This is our second time fishing with Rock Bottom Charters and we will always fish with Captain Doug in the future!  Great captain and a great experience!
