Our party of six was a family of 4 generations ranging in age from 5 to 79 years. We all, from the youngest to the oldest, had a great time. We chose the 4 hour trip which kept us relatively close to shore and in calm water. We caught lots of fish and a wide variety. Capt. Don and Josh made it an enjoyable and educational trip.

Thank you so much for joining us on Another Getaway for the 4 hour fishing charter. The 4 hour charters in October have been awesome with nice catches of kings, Spanish mackerel and bull redfish. I am so happy you guys enjoyed your experience with Getaway Charters. We hope to see you again soon. Remember, we fish year round.
Thanks,
Captain Don

I went on this fishing trip with a few friend . We had a great time. The Captain knew where the fish were, so all we had to do was follow instructions on how deep to fish and reel them in. I look forward to taking my family. They will love it because you don't have to wait a long time for the fish to bite. When you get your bait to the right depth the fish will take it. Ray C.

Capt. Don is a very seasoned and mature charter captain with great Kenny & Gil that put us on the fish. Plenty of snapper, king and amberjack action with some shark fun mixed in to make it even more exciting.

Capt. Don and Gill definitely delivered! Our family group covered 15 to 81 years of age and we all had a great day. We caught some fish I did not know existed in our Gulf. They will be our first choice for future charters. Awesome team!

Cpt Don McPherson, Cpt of the 46'Hatteras named Another Getaway, delivered a fun-filled day of fishing for our family at Orange Beach AL. With Red Snapper and Amberjack seasons closed, he faced a tough task of putting us on fish we could put in the fryer and on the grill. Once again, he and deckhand Gil gave us a day to remember. We caught plenty of fish and wore some teenagers out on the King Macs. We also had some great catch n release snapper and triggerfish. Cpt Don knows how to organize a day that's "family friendly". It's nice to be able to go on a trip and not have to tolerate bad actors after a rough night. We have recommended this Cpt , deckhand , and boat to several families and we've been very pleased. Thanks Captain ....for another great productive trip. We'll recommend you to all of our friends coming to the Gulf Coast. Shalom! Craig Medders, Birmingham, AL
