How to Book a Fishing Trip in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach

No matter if it’s your first trip to the Coast, or if you’ve visited Gulf Shores and Orange Beach for years, taking a fishing trip during your vacation is always an adventure! Booking a trip may seem overwhelming at first, but it’s really quite simple. Here are a few easy steps, plus some great tips!

Step 1

You can, of course rent your own boat and voyage on your own, but most beginners will find taking a chartered boat to be the more economical and logical option. Before you choose a charter service, you’ll need to determine what kind of trip you’re interested in taking.

  • Inshore or Deep Sea Excursion
  • Half Day, Full Day, or Overnight Trip
  • Are you ok with a shared trip or do you want the boat to you and your group only?
  • Do you want your charter to offer fish cleaning services?

Step 2

The next step is actually choosing your charter. On the Alabama Gulf Coast, we’re home to a huge fleet of fishing charters and captains, but here are a few to get you started.

 

Don’t forget to check for deals and coupons on websites like FreeTouristBook.com or Coast360.com.

Step 3

Your charter company will provide items like fishing gear, tackle, and the fishing license, however you’ll need to prepare for your trip by grabbing the following:

  • Seasickness medication you may require
  • Sunscreen
  • Non-slip shoes
  • Sun protection (hat, fishing shirt, sunglasses, rain jackets)
  • Cooler with ice (if the charter you chose does not provide ice)
