About Us

Coastal Life Charters & Adventures is all about making our customers happy. We specialize in customizable family fun fishing charters and boat excursions in the beautiful waters of the Emerald Coast.

With affordable rates, no extra person charges, a comfortable boat with an enclosed restroom, dog friendly charters, and a wealth of knowledge, we invite both cruisers and anglers to enjoy your time spent on the boat, soaking up all the sun and surf.

Trip Information:

Tips depart out of Navarre, Gulf Breeze & Pensacola Beach FL. Trips can also run out of Destin, but please contact the captain at least a day before booking your trip so he can confirm availability. Anglers of all skill levels are welcome, the only requirement is that you want to have fun.

The crew will greet you with a warm welcome aboard  ‘Little Blue II & The Little Grey I’. They are 22’ Robalo center consoles with 200 HP Yamaha engines.

Coastal Life Charters & Adventures will take you to the Intracoastal waterways, the waters in and around the Pensacola Bay and the nearshore Gulf. Your main targeted species will be Speckled Trout, Redfish, Flounder, Sheepshead, Spanish Mackerel, Spadefish and Mangrove Snapper. If you book one of the longer trips, there is also a good chance to land Red Snapper, Grouper, Triggerfish, King Mackerel, Cobia and many other types of fish?

All trips come inclusive with the licenses for you and your party, quality rods, reels, bait, tackle, and ice. You can feel free to bring whatever you want to drink and eat.

For boat excursions and cruises, we will work with you to develop a customized trip. You may prefer to sightsee the coast by boat, dipping a toe or two in our emerald waters along the route. Perhaps you’d like to see the Blue Angels practice? Maybe you’d like to adventure to Crab Island and see what the boat life is all about.

We are here to make your nautical dreams a reality!
