  • This was the best deep sea fishing trip. It was relaxing, memories were made, fish were caught. Captain Troy and Jacob were great and very accommodating. Brandy and Jason Walker from TN

  • After arriving on our family vacation, we began searching for a charter company for a family fishing trip. My wife, two daughters, and niece had never been out fishing, so it was important to me that I find someone interested in making it a memorable experience. What caught my attention about Distraction Charters was the language in the advertising. It said offering a “G” rated family trip for the whole family. I submitted an inquiry about a trip and was amazed at how fast Captain Troy called back in response to my request. He really tailored an opportunity based on my family’s desires for the trip. Upon arrival at the marina on the morning of the trip, we found Captain Troy and Deckhand Jacob no less than exceptional. The captain’s humor immediately captivated my family and made us feel right at home. We were amazed at the literal open door policy on the vessel. There was really no door off limits to my family. We immediately took notice of how well manicured and maintained the boat was. After departure, I enjoyed time in the top mast with Captain Troy while on the way out. We wasted no time upon arriving at the first fishing spot and started catching fish. Jacob worked tirelessly keeping lines rigged, baited, and off loaded. Captain Troy used his wisdom in moving to a new spot when things were not to his liking. We feel like he really went the extra mile insuring we had a memorable experience. We caught a lot of fish and were able to keep a mess to eat. Mr. Jacob even cleaned them at no extra cost! My family was amazed at how courteous Captain Troy and Jacob were for the entire trip. We never heard any profanity or obscene comments or communication. It was everything and more than advertised. We would definitely recommend Distraction Charters to families like ours who care about the atmosphere they subject their family to. A must do for our family again. Maybe next time we can do a whole day trip now knowing what kind of experience we have to look forward to!
  • Distraction Charter came highly recommended to us from a friend. My husband and I have been on a trip before on a much larger boat, with many people, trying to catch fish, but this was a totally different experience, and was exactly what we were looking for. Captain Troy and Sam are what you are looking for if you are looking for a good family outing. There were 6 of us, and we all had a great time. Safety is an important thing to me as a mom, and their rules aligned with my expectations, and exceeded them. Sometimes you catch fish, other times you don’t. We did well on our trip. You can’t make the fish bite, but Captain Troy and Sam gave it all they had to make sure we had fun and some wonderful memories. The best part was the experience for my boys. They got to help “drive the boat” and see how everything works. Captain Troy and Sam interacted very well with my 2 “Texas Tornadoes”. They are all boy, and like to have a good time. Captain Troy connected right away with the boys. They had a great time and will never forget this trip. No one got sick, and it was a great part of our trip. We will be going out on a trip with this crew again when we get back this way for our next trip. Thank you again for a great experience!
  • Captain Troy and deckhand Kyle are awesome! We had a group of 6 go out with them for a half day trip. We had 3 teenagers and a 10 year old and they all had such a fun time. Troy makes you feel like family right away and I felt safe letting all the kids go out with him. The day we went out the water was a little rough, Captain Troy was great to call us ahead and let us know the conditions. We really appreciated that. Everyone had a great day and they caught a lot of fish! My group still can’t stop taking about the trip and what a memorable experience it was. We will definitely be booking him again for our trip to Orange Beach next year!
  • My family and I had a blast on our fishing trip yesterday! Captain Troy made us feel so welcome and was so friendly. Sam, our deckhand, was the same and was always right there with whatever we needed. They might not be able to guarantee fish, but Distraction Charters sure provided a fun and memorable trip! PS: the good Lord did put some fish in our path, so we’ll be enjoying them for supper! 😁
  • Troy and Sam were Amazing!!! They were patient and kind with my family who was definitely not experienced fisherman. They shared their knowledge and helped us learn how to do it ourselves. They made us feel like family, as though we BELONGED in that boat. We caught 4 different species of fish on our half day trip! I highly recommend these two guys! I was so scared to be that far away from land, but Troy and Sam out my fears at ease quickly. Please check these guys out, they will not disappoint !! Can’t wait to try the homemade seasoning/rub to Troy!!
