My wife gave me the gift of a deep-sea fishing charter for Christmas. I guess winter is a slow season for fishing charters, as we contacted three charters and only one of them got back to us. That was Distraction Charters, and they replied promptly. We were contacted directly by captain Troy and he was helpful in organizing the trip... More

We are a corporate couple who went looking for an adventurous escape from our concrete jungle and Captain Troy’s 6-hour deep sea fishing trip was the perfect “Distraction” for us. Of course we were hoping to catch a few fish, but mostly we just wanted to get out on the water and share a fun, new experience. To our surprise,... More

On a recent trip over fall break we took our family to Orange Beach, AL. Being from northern Indiana, we were happy to get to the coast and enjoy some sunshine and 79 degree weather. We decided on this trip to fulfill a promise to our 14 year old son and go on a chartered fishing trip. With children 10,... More

My family and I went to Gulf Shores on a 2 part vacation; one for vacation and the the other to fulfill a promise ...to take my dads ashes to the ocean. My dad was a veteran and had a passion for the sea as he was once a commercial fisherman. I had no idea where to find someone to... More

This was a perfect fishing trip for our family! Troy and Stephen made it so much fun for everyone! I would totally recommend Distraction Charters. We caught lots of fish the whole day! I was very surprised! If they weren't biting within a few minutes Troy would move us along to a better place. Troy is also an excellent photographer... More

If you’re looking for a great charter boat fishing experience in Orange Beach, look no further than Captain Troy with Distraction Charters. Searching the internet, I am always skeptical of anyone loaded with 5 star ratings. Well, you will not regret booking with Captain Troy. Reasons? 1) You are treated like family, on a family-oriented fun trip. Troy and first... More

This fishing trip was exactly what was promised. Troy and his mate Stephen were perfect hosts for our family (including a 4 and 6 year old). We were comfortable, happy, and having the best time fishing together. Troy put us on fish, and then went the extra mile to take pictures and video! More than that, he was making sure... More

I found Captain Troy via the great reviews here. Thanks to all the prior reviewers for leading me to the best part of our Summer vacation! I have fished all over the Gulf coast and never had a better experience than I had with Captain "T-Roy" and his great mate, Stephen. We had six folks in our party, ranging from... More
