We had a great experience. We caught several fish. The boat was very comfortable. We are returned customers and recommend Captain Don McPherson and Josh who was very helpful in helping with the lines, cleaning the fish and enjoyable to visit with. LL

Reuben and Harrison could not have been more professional, helpful or fun. They were extremely patient and helpful with our 9 and 11 year old boys. We can't recommend Getaway Charters enough. It was the highlight of our trip to the Orange Beach area.

Fishing in August is usually very good. You may troll for kings and Spanish mackerel or bottom fish for snapper. We only do private charters. See more info at our website.

June is a great time to fish. Red snapper season will be open. A 6 hour charter is all you need. More info at Getaway Charters website.
