Gulf Offshore Charters

Gulf Offshore Charters specializes in trolling, bottom fishing, and deep dropping trips out of Pensacola, Florida. The captain and his crew invites you to join them on their day out to the hottest spots out of the shore to catch big fish. If you are looking to butt heads with some tough fighters or just want to have fun with your family, you have found the right charter.

You will go out aboard a 36’ Invincible center console, which was built on a high-performance hull. The boat comes powered by three 300 HP Yamaha engines with a huge maximum cruising speed of 60 knots! Perfect for accommodating up to six anglers, the boat is comfortable and stable in any situation. It is fully rigged with modern navigational electronics and safety equipment, with a toilet on board for your maximum comfort when spending your day on the water. There is a live well loaded with bait, along with an ice-box to keep the catch fresh during the day.

The trips are from six to twelve hours on the water. The experienced crew will help you with all your needs and will accommodate your specific wishes. Even if you have never held a fishing rod in your hand and it’s your first time on the water, you will be provided with all the necessary instructions to make sure you have an action-packed trip.

Your targeted species will include Red Snapper, Mahi-Mahi, Yellowfin Tuna, Gag Grouper, Tilefish, Warsaw Grouper, Barrel fish, Blackfin Tuna, Wahoo, Amberjack, King Mackerel, and who knows what else!

All trips come inclusive with all you need to make a successful capture of the fish possible. You will be provided with top-quality gear, tackle, lures, and bait, as well as electric reels. Fishing licenses for you and your group are also included in the price. The crew will send your catch home cleaned and ready to go straight into the frying pan. You can feel free to bring your own drinks and food.
