Afternoon mackerel

Book the last minute trip with Captain will. He met us on the dock of time with a grape first. There were six of us on the trip including my three-year-old grandson. The boat was clean all the tackle work perfect we caught fish. It was a great experience and the captain did what had to be done to catch fish. Definitely going to use Great Escape Charters and Captain Will the next time I make it to Gulf Shores highly recommended it was a great short Charter trip and I can't wait to take a longer one

Hands Down Best Trip You Will Take!!

Went out on a 4 hour trolling with 👨‍✈️ Captain Will and Mate Hermie!! Our group of 6 age range was 16/41 and let me tell you we had a flipping blast!!!! We will forever remember the memories these two gave our family!! And add them into our Summer Trips every year here in Alabama. Could not of asked for a better time now crew!! Caught several fish and different kinds. Can wait for next year. Going for 6 hours next trip. These men are incredible. Will go out of their way to make sure you catch some good fish. Then get them all ready for you to take home if you wish. Until next summer ✌🏽

Great Fishing Trip

Highly recommended Captain Will. We took a 6 hour trip and had fun from beginning to end. We caught fish from our first stop to the last. Captain Will told us we’re going to catch big fish and that’s what we did. We had an awesome trip.

Best Fishing Trip yet!

Our group had a fantastic time with Captain Will on a 6 hour off shore trip. They all brought home their limit of fish, which was amazing! He went to spots and immediately put everyone on fish. We usually take an offshore trip every year at different beaches, and this was the best one yet. Captain Will was great and we will definitely use him again when we are back in the area!

Fantastic Day of fishing.

My wife and sister and I took a four hour adventure trolling offshore with Captain Will and first rate First Mate Eddie. They kept us busy reeling in King Mackerel. What a day we had with a triple hook up and two double hookups and so many single hook ups I stopped counting. We can't say enough how much we enjoyed our turn with Captain Will and Eddie they are first rate fishermen and even better with their hospitality. Thanks Will And Eddie for a great memory fishing at Flora Bama.

Highlight of our vacation

Wonderful experience aboard the Marlin Madness. Capt. Will was excellent with our kids and helping them experience the thrill of deep sea fishing. They made sure to take us where the fish were biting and we caught more than expected. Highly recommend Great Escape Charters.

We're glad you had a great time. Thank you for the great review.

Great Fishing Trip

On 6/10/2017. What can i say. Capt Will and Deck Hand Eddie was great. It was my son and i first ever deep sea fishing trip. We caught outblimit on Red Snapper and caught several other fish. Seen a sea turtle and several dolphins on our trip.nCapt Will knows how to put you on them. If you aint never been, you need to go. Marlin Madness is the way to go.
