Captain Kenny Lewis will be leading the way on your Pensacola fishing charter. A Pensacola native, Capt. Kenny has been fishing in the Florida Panhandle his entire life. He is very passionate about the sport of fishing. He has built up vast knowledge of fishing the Florida Panhandle over the years and loves to share his insight with each and every one of his clients. He holds a USCG 100 Ton Captain’s License, so you can rest assure that your safety will be his top concern. Capt. Kenny is always ready to answer any questions you may have on fishing trips with him. 

 

Your Florida deep sea fishing charter with Capt. Kenny will begin in Gulf Breeze. Capt. Kenny wants to put you where the bite is hot, so you could end up exploring the nearby waters of Pensacola, Oriole Beach, Navarre, Pensacola Beach, Perdido Key, Tiger Point, Warrington, Pensacola Bay, and many other wonderful locations along the Emerald Coast of Florida. 

 

Fishing will be done aboard Capt. Kenny’s 27ft Americat Catamaran boat that is perfect for Florida fishing charters. Behind her is a set of 150hp Mercury engines that will give her a fast and smooth ride between fishing spots. Her hull allows for great stability and there is room for up to 6 anglers to enjoy fishing. A T-top will provide relief from the Florida sun and a wireless trolling motor will help us sneak up on those particularly anxious fish. 

 

We offer trips ranging from 3 to 10 hours in length covering the inshore, nearshore, and offshore waters around Gulf Breeze, FL. All of your trips will include top quality fishing gear, lures, bait, and a fishing license at no extra charge. Any fish you are able to keep will be cleaned and packaged at the conclusion of each trip. Don’t forget to ask Capt. Kenny about some of the local restaurants that will cook your catch for you. 

 

The species that call the Florida Panhandle home are endless. This area of Florida is world renowned for its fishing opportunities. Some of the species we love to target include Mahi Mahi, Grouper, Snapper, Sharks, Cobia, Wahoo, Sheepshead, Flounder, and Tuna. 

 

Don’t miss out on the Florida fishing trip of a lifetime! Book a trip with Panhandle Charter and Guide Service and Captain Kenny Lewis today to get started on a fishing trip in Pensacola you will always remember!

5 out of 5 stars
  • Created Darren Pollmann

    Captain Kenny was great. Very good with the kids and knowledgeable about the area. He got us on fish even though the weather was crappy and changed plans when the girls got cold to get us out of the wind. He made a poor weather day a success.

  • Loved our Trip!

    Created Lisa L

    This fishing charter was perfect! Safe and fun, excellent expertise by Captain and crew! Captain Kenny and his crew were friendly, major experts, confidence inspiring and we caught so many fish! We liked everything about our trip with them. Boat was great with new, fast engines! Excellent rods for any situation. Wow, would do again in a heartbeat!

  • Great Memories

    Created Alisa Simpson

    There is not enough I can say about Captain Kenny. Within our 1st hour on the water our whole party of 5 had limited out on Red Snapper. Capt. Kenny was extremely knowledgeable about not just fishing but all outdoor sports. You will NOT! be disappointed nor bored during your time with the Cap cause he will put you on the fish! I will most definitely be booking another trip in September and booking all future trips through Captain Kenny and Panhandle Charters!! Thanks again for an amazing time and some great memories!!

  • 4Hr Deep Sea Fishing Trip

    Created Tammy Davidson

    Captain Kenny and Austin took my family out on a 4 hour deep sea fishing guide and it was the absolute best experience we have ever experienced. The smiles on my kids faces were priceless! They went above and beyond to make sure it was memorable trip and they surpassed the expectations. They are very knowledgeable of the area and educated us on things we never knew. I will definitely use them each and every-time I go to Pensacola area. Thank you!

  • Amazing Trip!!!

    Created Jeremy Reynolds

    Amazing Trip!! Captain Kenny really knows what he’s doing. He put us on fish even when other charters couldn’t. 110% recommend!! If your thinking of booking book with Captain Kenny.

  • Great Captain

    Created Troy Reich

    Captain Kenny was just great! He took time to learn what we wanted to accomplish on our charter and worked with us on timing. The weather wasn't perfect (a bit cold) but it was a beautiful day and the kids (7 and 9) were excited to go. He made sure the kids weren't bored and was always teaching the kids, and us, about the fish we were catching. Most importantly, he made sure we accomplished our goals. My wife caught her first fish, EVER! It was a big one too. A nice 30lb Black Drum! I had never caught a big fish that was larger than 10lbs and let Captain Kenny know I would love to catch a big fish but it was more important that the family have a great time. After making sure the family had a great time, the Captain made sure I wouldn't leave without accomplishing my big one. Our final fish of the the charter was me reeling in a 180-200lb Dusky Shark! What a great experience. The kids are still talking about it a week later. You will not go wrong with Captain Kenny!

  • Highly Recommend

    Created Robert Gibson

    Captain Kenny put us on a ton of fish right off the bat, best day on the water I’ve ever had. His experience and knowledge of the local water was obvious, and he was great to be with on the boat. Highly recommend, will be back!

  • Best Charter!!!!

    Created James Grizzel

    We just took our 3rd trip with Captain Kenny. We had 11 people this last time because we had a group of kids from our Boys and Girls Club go and they had a great time. (He had to get us two boats to take) EVERYONE caught fish. Captain Kenny works hard to find the fish, is great with kids, and very down to earth. He always keeps an eye on the weather and is always honest about what to expect. We love charter fishing with him and plan on going to Florida at least once a year and will be fishing with him every time. Other guides just have not been as good as him. He will also fillet your fish when your done so bring a cooler to leave in your vehicle to keep your fish in, then buy some ice as soon as you can for them

  • 6 Hr Trip was a blast!!!!

    Created Emily Martin

    We could not have asked for a better experience than the one we had with Captain Kenny! Prior to booking with him, he answered all the questions we had about the fishing trip including types of fish and what to expect on our first saltwater fishing trip. We told him we wanted a combination of catching bigger fish for fun but also catching plenty of fish in season to take home with us. There were 3 of us and we decided on a 6 hour trip - it was a BLAST! We did a combination of inshore and offshore to meet our goals and it was worth every penny. Plenty of fish in the cooler and we each all caught huge red snappers!! We saw plenty of dolphins which was the cherry on top. The entire time Kenny was informative and extremely personable and down to earth, he worked his tail off to make sure we all had a great time! Can not recommend him more! Will book through him again in future trips. Thanks Kenny!

  • I can not say enough about these guys

    Created Shane Davis

    an't say enough what an incredible job Capt Kenny did! We took a family vacation with 6 of us from West Texas. We don't get to do this kinda fishing much so we wanted the full experience and man did Capt Kenny ever deliver. We all got to catch a King Mackerel (minus one who got a barracuda, how cool!) Then we asked what was the possibility of us getting to hook a shark? Instead of being put out he took us right to a hot spot and we ALL got to catch a shark too! Aside from being a brilliant fisherman, Kenny is an awesome dude too. By the end of the trip it felt like we were just fishing with a buddy. If you're coming anywhere down here don't consider anywhere else but Panhandle Charter.

  • Great Charter!

    Created Rudy Chalmers

    Captain Kenny was awesome. He wasted no time getting us on fish and keeping lines tight. We will definitely use panhandle charters and guide service again. I cannot say enough great things about captain Kenny. 👍👍
