In demand!

Alabama Coastal Charters is one of the very few companies that offer a private hands-on and highly educational shrimping and Bottle Nose Dolphin viewing experience. If you want a vacation to remember, come along!

Their professional service offers a range of water adventures that will tend to anyone’s palate - be you a kid, group of friends, seasoned anglers or first-time fishers.

Fish is not all there is! Shrimping trips take place in the calm back bay waters in Orange Beach. If you desire, you will participate in the entire shrimping process. As the charter and captain are family oriented, they often have families tell them this experience was the highlight of their child’s vacation. Your Shrimp are bagged and given to you at the end of your charter. Your kid will also get to help the captain drive the boat!

For anglers who want to feel the fish bite - Alabama Coastal Charters also provides an exceptional inshore and near shore charter fishing service.  The boat’s design allows fishing within 8 inches of water for inshore species. It’s also exceptional in nearshore waters, offshore too.

If you want a unique trip - this is one of the very few companies that offer night inshore trips.Their inshore night fishing for Specks, slot Reds, and White Trout is outstanding and is a great way to beat the Alabama heat. Take the family to dinner, go to the amusement park, put the kids in bed, and then go FISHING!

There are hundreds of man-made reefs close to the shore that offer some of the best bottom fishing and trolling in the world. Talk about
pure angling - these waters are home to one of the best Red Snapper fisheries worldwide.

Captain Mitchell has plenty of hacks and tricks up his sleeve - he’ll put all his skills in giving you the best of times - choose trolling, bottom fishing, night time, afternoon, morning, shrimping, dolphin watching - whatever you desire! He’ll make sure that you have an enjoyable time on the water with your kids or friends.

    We offer this charter all year long and is action packed. Alabama has thousands of man made and natural reefs within 9 miles of shore so we will target all reef species when in season (Red Snapper, Vermillion Snapper, Trigger Fish, Amberjack, Cobia, etc) on this charter. We take great pride in using techniques to safely releasing any fish caught that is not in season. We will target schooling top water species and catch them on light tackle when going to and from the reefs. This is a drag pulling trip!

    This is our best value trip and it includes 4 people in the price, so bring your whole family! Kids just love this one - they get to experience shrimping and fish while on the same trip. Don't forget - when we pull the shrimp net, the Bottle Nose Dolphins know it means dinner time. They will come right to the boat when the shrimp net is pulled in, so you'll have a face-to-face dolphin encounter. We can customize the fishing portion of the trip from beginner anglers to the most seasoned angler.

This provides a hands on opportunity to participate in the complete shrimping process. It also often provides a unique up close Dolphin viewing experience. The kids get to drive the boat with the captain.

    New for 2018- We listened to your request! This 2 hour trip is designed for kids or beginner anglers. This trip targets smaller fish that are almost always hungry and takes place in the calm back bay waters. I want families to experience the first fishing trip together so I do not charge an extra angler charge on this trip (4 people included). As a bonus, we do this trip in an area where Bottle Nose Dolphins are often spotted. I can do this trip AM or PM so take the KIDS fishing!

I have fished since I was old enough to walk. Got my first boat at the age of 12 and have owned a boat every since. I have been in healthcare for 26 years and have decided turn my lifelong passion into a business.
