About Your Trip

Head out with Captain James and for a memorable day out on the Emerald Coast! Pensacola is the perfect spot to go after exciting inshore species in the bays and canals, or venture out into the Gulf for some big catches.

On this 4 to 8 -hour trip, Captain James will cruise you through the beautiful Pensacola inshores or take you up to 9 miles offshore to go after some Black Grouper, Cobia, Gag Grouper,
Jack Crevalle, Mangrove Snapper, Red Snapper, Redfish, and Sheepshead. You'll be targeting these fish using light tackle or doing some bottom fishing. Don't get discouraged if the fishing is slow; Captain James knows over 950 fishing hotspots in the area so he'll get you to another one in no time for a fresh start!

You’ll be fishing aboard a 26’ Glacier Bay Canyon Runner center console that can hold up to 6 guests. All ages are welcome aboard, and this vessel will get you where you need to be on the Pensacola coast with ease! She comes complete with all the essential navigational and safety equipment.

Captain James will provide all rods, reels, and tackle. All you need to bring is polarized sunglasses, sunscreen, a hat, and any food or drinks you might want out on the water. Book your trip and come experience world-famous Florida fishing!

Captain James was awesome. Very knowledgeable and took us out to several different locations to help us try to find the best spots. I would highly recommend Captain Experiences for deep sea fishing.

First Time Booking with Us?

Captain Experiences is the home of over 1500 Damn Good fishing and hunting guides. Our mission is to unlock the outdoors for everyone, and we want to help you get out there through our no-hassle online booking experience and our team of outdoors experts.
We vet our guides to make sure they are the best of the best. We want guides who not only put you on 'em, but show you a great time, keep you safe, and give you a memorable experience with your group.
Once you've paid your deposit at checkout, we'll send you a QR Code boarding pass. Just show your guide your boarding pass on the day of the trip, they'll scan it, the remaining balance will transfer automatically, and you'll be all set to get out there. Just make sure you bring a cash tip for the guide!
In the case of inclement weather, our guides will make the call and we'll work with you to reschedule your trip or issue a credit for the full deposit of the trip to be used on any of our trips across the country. Your safety is our top concern.
Each trip’s price is set by the guide and factors in all of their costs. A big determinant of cost is often the type of boat and associated fuel costs, but other guide costs include leases, marina / slip fees, bait costs, and the cost to provide and maintain all of the gear you’ll need on your trip.
Once you book the trip, we will connect you directly with the guide to go over any additional details. In the meantime, our team is always available to answer your questions via email, text, chat, or call!
