Everything was as expected and beyond. Our group ranged in age from 8 to 64, and it was the highlight of a wonderful spring break in Orange Beach. Our hats are off to Troy and Stephen, hope to see you again next year.

Captain Troy and Stephen took us on the best fishing trip over our Spring Break! I had the pleasure of joining my three young nieces (4,6 and 7) and their parents on the girls’ first charter fishing experience. Captain Troy sat the girls down and quickly taught them what they needed to know about the ins and outs of fishing... More

My family's deep sea fishing trip with Distraction Charters was by far the most exciting time of our entire spring break vacation. There were six of us, (two adults and four children) you'd think that would get a little hectic, but Troy and Stephen were super nice and so good with the children. This was our first time out and...

This trip far exceeded our expectations! Troy and Stephen had us on fish in no time at all. The boat is immaculate and every detail of the trip was thought out in advance. Troy took time to explain everything before leaving and Steven had us catching fish within minutes of hitting a spot. Didn't feel like we were hiring a... More

(Captain) Troy and Stephen were GREAT to work with! Having never booked a trip like this, Troy was very open and honest about what to expect. I was nervous as we were taking our college age children(boy/girl) and my daughter's friend also. My kids have fished out in the Gulf before, but my wife and I were "newbies". I wasn't... More

Distraction charters was literally everything we hoped for In a deep sea fishing trip. 5 of us went, with it being the first time for 4 of the group members. Troy and Stephen displayed unwavering hospitality and tended to our every want and need. Within minutes of arriving at the first fishing spot we were pulling in great fish after... More

Captain Troy and Stephen are amazing. My husband, myself, and 3 girls (ages 15, 16, and 12) had the best fishing trip of all time! We've chartered several trips in the past in different locations and have never had more fun than we did with these guys. They made us all feel comfortable with the equipment and took us right...

They made us feel comfortable and took us where the fish were biting. I cannot say enough good things about Troy & Stephen! If we're ever in Alabama again we will definitely... More

This by far was the best spring break excursion we've ever had. Troy and his deck hand Stephen were top notch professionals. They did exactly what was advertised. It was a comfortable relaxed fishing trip. Troy handled the boat and Stephen took care of all the fishing equipment. Once we got set up it was almost non stop fishing. We... More
