Kitchen Pass Charters, Inc.

Kitchen Pass Charters, Inc. is a veteran-owned charter company. Offering nearshore fishing and dive charters, the company will provide you with all the fishing equipment you need for a great day on the water.

The Kitchen Pass is a spacious 26 ft Dusky center console that has a lot of room for up to six people to go fishing or diving. Powered by a 300 HP Yamaha engine, the boat can reach speeds of over thirty knots and will take you to the best reefs and wrecks in no time. It features a GPS, fishfinder, and VHF radio for communication and navigation, and there is a live bait tank on board to keep your bait in the best condition possible.

Explore the nearshore wrecks and reefs around Panama City, Florida, either above the water with a fishing rod, or beneath the surface with diving equipment. Whichever option you go for, you are likely to encounter Snappers, Groupers, Jacks, and Mackerel. As far as fishing is concerned, you could be bottom fishing, trolling, and jigging and, depending on what you want to get out of your day, you could be targeting Redfish, Trout, and Flounder, or Barracuda and Sharks.

Kitchen Pass Charters, Inc. provides all the gear you need for fishing - all you need to bring is your own food and drinks. If you are taking a dive charter, you will need to bring your own gear.

I have fished all my life in mostly freshwater until I was stationed in Okinawa with the Air Force, where I fell in love with scuba diving. Stationed here in Florida's Panhandle, I took up saltwater fishing and found I have a knack for it. After almost 22 years in the Air Force I decided to retire and start a charter with the two hobbies I fell in love with: fishing and diving.
