Action Charter Service Inc.

Action Charter Service goes the extra mile to make sure your trip is affordable and memorable. They want you to enjoy your trip enough to tell all of your friends to come fishing with them on their vacation! Captain George Pfeiffer is the owner. With more than 40 years of experience, he has been fishing these emerald green waters of the beautiful Gulf Coast from Panama City, Florida to the Texas coast.

You’ll be fishing aboard the “Emerald Spirit,” a 65’ Bonner offshore sportfishing boat. The boat is equipped with all the navigational equipment you’ll need, and there’s a toilet, shower, and a bed for your convenience. There’s a flybridge to protect you from the sun, so you can relax and get your fish on.

The crew takes pride in their very clean boats and professional crew. Customer service is the most important thing for them. Fast, courteous, and clean, they will help you bait your hooks as well as teach everyone how to use the rod and reels to catch fish. They work for tips, so they are especially motivated to keep you happy.

Capt. George offers a couple of different types of trips, including a 4-hour walk-on trip for beginners and a 6-hour walk-on trip where you get further offshore and target bigger fish. These trips need a minimum of 15 passengers to run and can accommodate groups as large as 50 people.

The crew can accommodate your fishing needs, from corporate trips or church groups, scout clubs, baseball teams, and more. There is nothing like seeing your fish first and coaxing it into biting your hook on spinning reels when you cast out to him.

Let Action Charter Service be your next stop on your vacation and show you the very best fishing on the Alabama Gulf Coast!

No dogs are allowed onboard. If you have a service animal, please advise prior to booking the trip.

Captain George Pfeiffer was born and raised in Pensacola, FL. He's spent his entire life on the water, starting from a dock on the Emerald Coast when he was a little boy. Since then he's fished all over the place, northwest Florida, South Alabama, the Gulf Coast of Alabama, Mississippi Delta – he's chased that fish all around! He wants to put his customers on the best bite so much that he's been building his own underwater fishing reefs and wrecks for the past 20 years. With over 4 decades of guiding experience, you're in good hands when you're on a trip with Capt. George.
