Offshore Sportfishing Trips
Two of the biggest benefits the Gulf Coast offers is diversity of game and year-round fishing opportunities. Here at Intercoastal Safaris, we work hard to provide and maintain a fleet of deep sea fishing vessels with a team of seasoned captains at the helm. Service agreements allow Intercoastal Safaris to ensure our clients receive first-class service and memorable fishing experiences.
Gulf Coast anglers often refer to tuna excursions as thier favorite offshore fishing memories. There’s nothing quite like fighting against the sheer strength and incredible speed of a tuna on the end of your line! If hooking into one of these beasts is on your bucket list, the Gulf Coast is the right spot for you!
Here at Intercoastal Safaris, we take great pride in offering “Uniquely Coastal Hunting & Fishing” experiences to our guests. Our daytime swordfishing excursions are no exception! Our trips are unlike anything else offered in the Gulf of Mexico. Destin, Florida & Orange Beach, AL have the perfect combination of weather, ocean currents and seafloor terrain that make them it “The luckiest little fishing villages on earth!”

The Gulf Coast for anglers, is a great destination for red snapper fishing—and for good reason! The warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico hold huge numbers of these hard-hitting, great-tasting fish.
Intercoastal Safaris works with a small number of professional captains to offer a variety of red snapper fishing trips for groups of two to 10 anglers. These trips start at five hours and include fishing permits for all anglers. Once everyone on board has met their two-fish limit we troll for kings and Spanish mackerel. Of course, we always keep our eyes out for opportunities to target cobia and mahi-mahi!
Alabama has the largest artificial reef program in the United States. The natural offshore bottom of Alabama is a flat sandy bottom. When a vertical reef is created on the bottom, fish such as snappers or groupers become attracted. As corals and sponges cover the artificial reef material, small aquatic animals will take up residence. Soon a cycle will be created and a complete reef food web will be in place.
