Navigator Charters is a fishing guide service owned and operated by Captain Mike Weaver. He is located at Zekes Marina in beautiful Orange Beach, Alabama along the coast of the Gulf of Mexico.

Capt. Mike is a USCG Licensed Captain that has decades of experience on the local area waters and loves to share his years of knowledge with all his guests.

You’ll be fishing aboard a very dry and comfortable riding 24’ Blazer Bay center console. The boat is equipped with GPS and Fishfinder to locate the targeted species and an I-Pilot trolling motor to hold you on their position. The vessel also has plenty of safety equipment, dry storage, and seating for a great day on the water.

As you explore shores, back bays and bayous along the beautiful Alabama Gulf Coast you will match the hatch with seasonal live bait and top of the line light tackle to target species such as Redfish, Trout, Flounder, Sheepshead Spanish Mackerel and King Mackerel.

Navigator Charters is a family friendly guide service and is open to all skill levels, so bring the kids or bring your fishing buddy and…Let’s go fishing!

All trips come with the licenses, quality rods, reels, tackle, bait, and lures if needed. Your catch will be sent home cleaned and ready to go straight into the frying pan. The tips are 15-20%.

I have fished the area my whole life but never thought I would be doing this for a living, however as one door closed the opportunity to step into the charter industry opened. I have now been a full time Captain since 2008 and love getting on the boat and meeting new people everyday.
