Always An Adventure Guide Service

Always An Adventure Guide Service explores the waters in and around Corpus Christi, Texas. If you’re up to a true fishing adventure of a lifetime, you have found the best place. Unlike most guides in the area, Captain Dale wants you to have a great time and feel no pressure at all!

Relax, sit back, enjoy, and have fun in the Baffin Bay or out in the Gulf. A spacious 24’ Kenner Saltwater fishing boat will take you and five fishing buddies to the hottest spots in the area. The vessel comes powered by twin 140 HP Suzuki 4-stroke engines and is fitted with top-notch navigational electronics, safety equipment, and other professional accessories.

Spend your day testing the waters close to the shore. Target Redfish, Flounder, and Seatrout. Or head further out to search for Mahi-Mahi, Red Snapper, Cobia, King Mackerel, and many more. There is always something in season and biting!

Always An Adventure specializes in a variety of fishing techniques, from bottom fishing and drift fishing to trolling, spinning, jigging, popping, and fly fishing. The captain knows the local waters like the back of his hand and is familiar with he fishing methods that work best.

All trips come inclusive with lures, quality gear, and tackle, but you are welcome to bring your own. When available, you will also be provided with live bait. When you come back to the shore, your catch will be cleaned and ready to jump straight into the frying pan.

Now, simply find an opening in the captain’s calendar that works for you, book a package to your liking and start counting down the days until your trip!

Angler's Choice
The Angler's Choice Award is given to listings that consistently deliver a high-quality service and earn great reviews from customers.
Been fishing since I could hold a fishing pole and have been hooked every since. Now I get the privilege of taking others to enjoy the great outdoors and making memories with their family and friends and giving them a fishing experience of a lifetime. There is nothing like seeing a child or even a grown up catching a fish for the first time and watching the excitement of what it's like to truly enjoy the being out on the water. I got the name Always An Adventure because it is one thing you can count on when fishing with me. A true Adventure in the beautiful waters that God has created.
