5 out of 5 stars

Family friendly charter service? Locally owned and operated? Over 45 years of combined local knowledge? Check, check, check! Captain Dan Burnham and the Good Times Charter Fishing team are the premier charter boat fishing both the nearshore and offshore waters of Orange Beach, Alabama!

Captain Dan Burnham welcomes you aboard the Good Times, a meticulously maintained 30’ center console that can comfortably fish up to 6 anglers. Captain Dan brings over 15 years of local knowledge to the table, and your first mate for the day, Randy, has over 30 years! Captain Dan and Randy have been running charters together for the past 13 years and are just as adept at tailoring the day for young families as they are at providing tournament quality trips for the veteran angler!

The Good Times’s versatile hull was designed with both performance and comfort, providing a dry ride on your speedy trip to the fishing grounds. Her duel 300hp Suzuki engines maximize your time on the water, less time traveling means more time with a rod in-hand! Onboard you’ll also find a toilet, state of the art electronics, outriggers, and a livewell.

Depending on the time of year and your time on the water, you can be fishing between 12 and 40 nautical miles off the coast. Capt. Dan is one of the few Captains in the area that hold Federal water permits, meaning he can take you to the fishing grounds that experience the least amount of fishing pressure. Throughout the year you’ll have the opportunity to find Red Snapper, Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, Shark, Kingfish, Amberjack, and more tugging on the other end of your line!

Your trip cost for the day includes use of Good Times Charter Fishing’s tournament quality fishing tackle, live bait, a fishing license for all on board, and lures. Your first mate for the day, Randy, will work tirelessly to make sure everyone on board is rigged up with the right bait. 100% of the tip at the end of the trip goes to your first mate, and it covers the cost of fish cleaning at the end of the trip! If you’re satisfied with his efforts, a 20% tip is greatly appreciated.

Good Times Charter Fishing-Person
5 out of 5 stars
  • Great guides

    Created Robert Casey Hayes

    Great people! Would definitely recommend to anyone who wants to fish red snapper!

  • They are the best!!

    Created Emilie Schneider-Tobias

    This is the 2nd time we went out with Dan and Randy!! They are the best!! They put us on the fish every time!

  • Family trip

    Created Bobby Layton

    My family and I went on a trip this morning. Absolutely love this charter and these guys are awesome. This was our 2nd trip, and each time we have caught something. Captain Dan does not give up very easy, he will move us to the next spot if nothing is biting. His deck hand Randy keeps our hooks with bait and always on top of helping us with anything we needed. I highly recommend the Good Times for a deep sea charter.

  • Highly Recommended!!

    Created Kenney McClinton

    Had a fantastic trip out with Captain Dan and Randy. Absolutely loved every minute of it. They worked very hard to put us on the fish and are just great people to fish with. Caught several nice keepers today. Enjoyed every minute of it. Highly recommend them. Oh and I will be back!!

  • Very Enjoyable Trip

    Created Mitch DeNamur

    I would highly recommend taking a fishing trip with Captain Dan and Randy. Caught over 50 fish between 5 people. Unfortunately red snapper, triggerfish, and amberjack were not in season and we had to release them. However, still brought in a large haul of vermilion, lane, and white snappers. Captain Dan knows where the fish are and Randy knows how to ensure everyone catches a fish. A great pair of guys to take you out for an enjoyable day of fishing. We will be back.

  • best fishing trip my family has had

    Created Lucie Watkins Harding

    This was by far the best fishing trip my family has ever had. Captain Dan and Randy are so friendly and knowledgeable. Their only concern was for us to have a good time and catch the best fish. I will definitely be calling them again! Thank you so much for the incredible experience.
