Our family was staying in Ft Morgan and and this was on our "to do" list. There were 10 of us, which included younger kids, and the Captain and crew were fantastic and helped everyone. We were lucky enough to catch a baby bull shark and quite a bit of other fish. I was the only one who got to "chum the water" but I had such a great time I would definitely do it again!!!! We will be back! More...
Good portions, the food was good. Awesome catfish and I loved they’re lump crab cake. The service was good and fast. The outdoor seating is right by the marina and docks, so your guaranteed a great view. Check it out.
Went out with Captain Mike Weaver this morning. Awesome trip, you will never meet a nicer person. Very personable and knowledgeable. Thanks for a great experience Mike. More...
Weather was perfect, seas were great, as caught plenty of fish, everyone was ready to go again (except maybe the few that felt the ill effects of the motion of the ocean). Captain Mandy and Gary knew where to find the fish and get them on the boat, including one of the largest red snapper I've had the pleasure of seeing in person too bad it was out of season. I felt everything from my first contact to Zeke's Landing booking office to Gary cleaning the catch was nothing but professional. More...
Always good year after year. The key lime pie is delicious. Waitress said it comes from a speciality shop in Fairhope and that all the food is local here. Really delicious and fresh. Always a vacation favorite. More...
I am updating a previous review that I left, which I have since deleted. The owner of Zeke’s, Mrs Lynne saw the review and reached out to me herself to make things right. She clearly cares about her customers and the reputation of her business. I am very grateful for her reaching out and putting us on a charter. Looking forward to going out tomorrow! Thanks Lynne! More...
Michele Peterson Chesnek
Salty Dog chartered fishing with Marty was such an awesome experience. He put us right on the fish every time. He makes us feel like VIP customers every year, he'll always be our Captain. The restaurant at Zeke's was the best food we had all week. Get the cajun seafood pasta. Wowzers! More...
We went out on Zeke’s Lady on Monday July 22 2019 and had a blast! The Captain and deckhands were awesome guys and definitely knew what they were doin and when we went out the ocean was rollin but the captain somehow kept us over the hot spots! We will definitely be back next year More...
My son and I went out on the boat Daddy’s Baby. Not only was the captain and deck hand incredible, we caught out limit and had the best time. And the best part was the sweet, sweet lady that found us a spot. Highly recommend Zeke’s! More...
Angela Robinson McVay
Crew was awesome! Thanks for the birthday fun for my grandson. He loved it!
We had 3 people go in our group and we had a blast. Howie was on the back of the boat with us and we never needed anything. We all limited out and will be back highly recommend More...
We have been on the Zeke’s Lady boat twice. I highly recommend them. They were very kind and worked very hard and we caught lots of fish both times. They know where to take you. You will not come back empty handed. More...
The best fishing experience ever!! Southwind was awesome!
Sheryl booked trip Debora and Erika checked in Captain David Deckhands Peanut Howie Mathew “possum” Gavin “pudding) These people are great ! Thank you for all y’all do AND how you honor active military y’all ROCK More...
Great time today with Captain David & crew. Our boys had a blast & caught 13 huge fish!
Captain Carleton did a fantastic job.
nice and friendly folks captain and crew are awesome my boys first deep sea fishing trip they loved it as wife and I to
GREAT experience today on Zekes Lady with Captain David and his crew! It was my 10 year old sons first deep sea fishing trip and they went over and beyond to make it memorable for him! We will definitely be back!
Zeke's marina, Zeke's Lady, the captain, and the deck hands all was awesome! Perfect trip for me and the kids! Great fishing, Highly recommend.
so amazing. and first class captain and deck hands. and they put us on the fish. .was a first and will definitely come back again. wow
My 12 year old son and I went out 2 days in row this week on the Zeke's Lady fishing boat. We were pre-warned at check in that fishing had been "light" in recent weeks for uncertain reasons, but that did not stop us having 2 GREAT days of fun. Day 1, we caught 1 red snapper and 2 smaller BeBe (spelling?) fish. Day 2, we caught just the one snapper and a huge trigger fish (and multiple small fish) that we had throw back for being out of season. Many other people caught multiple fish on both days, many went home empty handed. Despite not coming home with a large catch, we still had an amazing time on both days. The crew, especially young deck hands "Puddin' and Possum" were incredibly attentive, helpful, and full of advice and tips. The whole team works hard to make sure you have fun and learn. A few tips... 1) Bring food and drinks, although refreshments are available at the Marina. 2) Bring cash for tips. 20% of the cost for you to fish is customary for the deck hands. So if you paid $160 for you and your kid to fish, bring $32 in cash. These guys work hard, don't let them down. 3) Bring a towel to clean your hands after handling bait 4) Go for the double hook rod if you can get one. More...
this is our second red snapper charter that we have done with zeke's landing marina. these guys are awesome. always put us on some big fish. we are definitely going again.
Captain Paul and the Reel Deal were awesome!
Awesome! Great time.Caught our limit Miss Jenny!
What a great time on Jamie G’s!!! Thank you Greg for knowing what to do and how to help. Another bucket list check off!!!
Megan Claire Hotard
World Class fishing and world class people to be around
James G. Snider
Awesome trip! Storm caught us off guard and the trip was cut a little short, but we still caught snapper. First trip to the gulf, first deep sea fishing trip. We'll be back. Very satisfied customers. Captain was great. Deck hands were great. More...
We had the best dolphin cruise yesterday. Our captain and crew were so friendly and attentive, the boat was clean, accommodating and well maintained and our experience was wonderful. Highly recommend!
Best captain ever had and deck hand were terrific.
We had an amazing time!! Drew and Seth on RipTide were so nice and professional. Some of our group were not feeling well, but they were accommodating and made it an instant highlight of our trip!! Thank you!
I booked Shady Lady as a surprise Father’s Day gift for my dad. We had a great time and enjoyed every minute of it. Memories of a lifetime were made yesterday.
I had a friend from home recommend Zeke’s. I called and told them I wanted an inshore trip for 4 hours with my 6 year old son. I told them I didn’t know which boat to book, that I just wanted my son to have a good time and catch fish. We were put with Capt. Dennis Treigle on his boat FMF. And man did we have a good time! Dennis worked hard putting us on fish, especially my son. We caught lots of fish. The final count was 13 trout, 1 skipjack, and 1 hardhead. My son caught 12 of the 15. Dennis was great about helping my son and making sure he enjoyed his first time salt water fishing. I highly recommend Dennis Treigle and his boat FMF for inshore fishing. More...
Went out on the sea hunter great captain and crew took my wife for our first time then took my 6 yr old the day after worked great with my son while out fishing and they got us in some nice fish
Best deck hands in the business and the office staff we're excellent. The whole place treats you like family. Love this place!!!
Caught out limit and was back in 5 hours on the Jamie G with Captian Gary and first mate Gary. Thanks for the memories and great time. We WILL be back.
Wonderful care. My son passed out today on the boat and they took amazing care Of us to get back to shore. Thanks guy. Been out a few times and they are great!
This year was our second annual family fishing trip aboard the Cool Change with Captain Nash @Zeke's Marina. Captain Nash made our trip so special, even allowing for some "bait fishing" that the younger kids could easily reel in before we moved in to the star of the day's show- the red snapper. Everyone had an awesome time and we could not have asked for a better experience for the whole family. Many thanks to Captain Nash! Our family is already looking forward to next years family vacation! More...
Zeke’s lady 6/9/19 walk on party boat 36” 25 1/2 lbs Red Snapper. Great trip, captain and crew were nice and helpful.
This was our family's second time charting a boat through Zeke's. Both times we used "Cool Change." Both times we had a blast. The boat was clean, the deckhands were very helpful and knowledgeable, and the captain was great. On our most recent trip we caught our limit of red snapper. More...
We had a great time and caught some good fish!
it was a very nice place. it was my grandson and soninlaws first fishing trip. they were very informative and very nice people.
Best money we spent in OBA was our dolphin tour aboard Captain Mark's FLIPPER I dolphin cruise. Great boat, personable captain and crew. Fun stopover at Pirates Cove for a terrific cheeseburger and Vidalia onion rings. Mmmm! A bargain cruise with all the amenities. Book Flipper I through Zeke's Landing charters. You won't be disappointed! More...
Had a great time on some hungry fish! Hook with Capt. Paul Rose for a great trip!
We went out on the dolphin cruise and it was awesome! The captain was professional and knowledgeable. We saw a lot of dolphins and it was a really nice excursion. We went on the 5 pm cruise and had a wonderful time. We brought a small cooler with drinks. The boat was very clean. It was fun for the whole family. More...
Such a clean and beautiful place , people are super nice , great for families!
5 stars saw dolphins within minutes best boat captain ever. Ed Rice! Really nice experience!
My husband I booked a 6hr trip on the party boat for Sunday morning. I then went and read the reviews and was very concerned that I would be wasting my money but decided to give it ago. First, I had a great time. The staff did an excellent job, Dave, Peanut, and Gavin. Everyone on the boat caught fish and it was a great time. The only thing I can think of with the negative reviews were people don't understand deep sea fishing. Yes, you have to go out about an hour and half to two hours. Second, it is fishing, sometimes they aren't biting and you gotta move to different spots. Third, it is a party boat if they don't meet the minimum sign up they possibly might not go out. Call frequently and ask if they have enough to go. The day we were going they didn't have the minimum (20) but 15 and Dave said he would still take us. It is a party boat so the more that go the less space you have when fishing so lines can get tangled when the boat is full. Fourth, sometimes boats have mechanical issues and can't go out. This is not the fault of the company. It's part of owning a boat :) Fifth, yes, you tip the deck hands. They worked the entire time and did excellent. Again, I enjoyed the trip and would book again with Zeke's. More...
Had a great time on the inshore charter! Took our catch to wolf bay lodge next door and they cooked it up! Fun experience!
Chris J Hinton
Extremely nice staff and great crews working the docks.. One of the best marinas in Alabama!!
The greatest marina in Alabama
If you can’t get a fish with Zekes you don’t needed to go fishing at all
Professional staff great food, fun and fishing.
Zeke's is a great landmark in Orange Beach and has the largest fleet and variety of boats to fit your needs both inshore and offshore charters. The staff is extremely knowledgeable and professional. The branding of Zeke's has changed with the new ownership and the vibe of this place is upbeat, positive and exciting!! The largest fleet on the gulf coast is at Zeke's and that's no accident. I highly recommend booking a charter with Zeke's!! More...
Great trip out of Zeke's on the "Annie Girl". The boat had a great set-up and they put us on the fish! The Capt/crew made sure we felt at home and were accommodating. They even have a grill on the back deck to cook whatever you bring. Enjoy! More...
Great Charter Staff! This ladies will work diligently to provide a great experience while at Zeke's! Let's go fishing!
Cindy Jamieson Baggett
Our 5th summer at Zeke’s Marina. Amazing staff
Regina Stone Bell
Had a great experience fishing today
I LOVE Zeke’s!! They are always fun and professional. I have always come back with my day’s max in fish. Highly recommend you spend a day out on the water with them!!
My husband and three others had a great trip with Zeke’s! So easy to book, and the staff is super-friendly. They caught their limit!
Sonia Schexnayder Angelle
Friendly staff with quick response on such a late notice of wanting a charter. Will definitely be back and highly recommend!!!!
It’s all bout captain and crew on boat. They did awesome job
We keep our boat dry docked here. My hubby deals with the staff and never has anything negative to say about storage. He can call to get boat out and wait time isn't a problem. Pier store has everything you need for boating....candy, ice, gas, you name it.The office staff is great too. Mandy can help you and if not she knows can. I recommend the whole establishment. Check it out. More...
Great marina. Captain Jason and Aquqstar you're the best!
FRIENDLY FOLKS---GOODS GUIDES GREAT DOCKS AND FACILITIES---- GOOD FISHING
DonJuan D Bubba
We had a great time. The Captain put us right on fish and we brought in as many as the law would allow. Zekes is on my MUST list for all g=future trips to GS.
Hands down the best charter fishing marina in Orange Beach and the entire Alabama Gulf Coast. These captains know there stuff and will put you on the fish. My 6 year old son had the time of his life on Zeke's Lady and we caught 17 Vermillion Snapper and 2 Lane Snapper. 10 lbs of fish for the ice chest in 6 hours flat! More...
awesome trip on Jamie G today. Thanks Captain Greg and Shawn fgor an awesome trip
What an incredible time we had on my very first deep sea fishing trip. Awesome crew and bragging rights made today a day we will never forget! Thanks so much!
Lori Richardson Thomas
Excellent service! Friendly, helpful and accommodating staff. Best marina around! We really enjoyed everything about Zeke's.
Fishing with Zeke's is always awesome! This last time we went with Captain Jason on the Aquastar and it was nothing less than amazing! The boat was clean and well-kept, with a nice bathroom and even a few places to nap. Jason found us some great spots on our 8 hour trip. He wasn't afraid to go out a little further even on our shorter trip for some sweet rewards! Came home with much more fish than I could eat! What a spectacular day!! More...
One of the best marinas in Orange Beach. Wonderful charters.
Zack and Brett took us out on the hey boy II. Had an awesome time and they were great. Would recommend to anyone!
On 8/17/18 my husband and son (ray and Phillip Blankenship)went on a 8 hour trip on wild orange with Captain Bryan , we can’t say enough good things about the captain and his beautiful boat, the boat and equipment was all in excellent shape we have booked our trip for next year beginning aug 11-aug 17 2019 , we will be definitely going on another trip with Captain Bryan and the WILD . Captain Bryan took pride in his boat and making them feel comfortable and not to mention the fish OH THE FISH More...
Douglas John Janowski Jr.
Caught some great sized fish. Only can keep Snappers(aka B liners) Small but gonna be delicious. Thanks to Captiain Paul and deck hand, they took us to the best spots. Highly recommend “Reel Deal”.
Captain Mandy got us on the fish quick and had a great time. Ben and RJ are an awesome help on the boat. We slammed the Red Snapper. Highly recommend that crew.
Great place to fish out of. Went on a morning trip with zekes lady and crew and had a great time! Was kinda worried about it being a party boat from stories I’ve heard but with great deck hands and a good captain everything went great. Everyone was great from Deborah that worked up front, to the dock hands and boat captains. More...
My husband and I took a 5 hour deep sea fishing trip w/ Lady Zeke's...the booking was easy, the crew was great and my husband had a great time. ..however...this is a warning: if you get motion sickness (like I did) this is NOT for you...5 hours on a boat, vomiting off the side of it and having no escape equals pure torture. If you don't get motion sickness=go for it and you will enjoy it! More...
Excellent marina. The guys with South Wind were awesome!
Amanda Camp Villard
We fished off Legacy Charter last Sunday and it was a day to put in the books ! The Captain and deckhand did amazing and kept us on the fish ! We will definitely be using this charter again! More...
Valerie Lackey Gorman
We had so much fun on the Reaper II with Capt Mike Peek! We caught plenty of fish and have zero complaints! I would highly recommend him for near shore fishing!
Captain Gary was an awesome captain and did his best to ensure we had a great time!!
I can’t say enough good things about Doug and RC who took us out on the Eagle Express. We had a large group of women -first time salt water fishing for most- and they were incredibly patient and kind, laughed at our jokes and went along with our shenanigans. Most of the trip was really rough with the waves, but we caught our limit on snapper and had a wonderful time on the boat. It was a blast and will definitely recommend Zeke’s to others! More...
Rebecca Pruitt Wilson
We had our 1st offshore fishing charter as a family today. There are so many options to choose from, and finally we just booked one. We could not have had a better experience!! Captain JT and Buddy were absolutely phenomenal. They went out of their way to make every minute a memorable experience. I would highly recommend this crew on the Miss Ginger for anyone looking to receive an awesome experience! Thank you JT and Buddy for making our 2018 vacation one of our most memorable vacations!! More...
Captain Frank Gandt of the Quite Frankly and his mate Jimmy worked extra hard to make our bottom fishing trip super fun with extra big fish caught!!! ...Chris Alkire
Clay was our captain today on Angler Management and we limited out in 90 minutes. Call Clay if you want to get on fish.
Went out with Capt Tyler on Bad Habit!!! He put us on some nice red snapper. We had a blast and would definitely book him again!
Thanks Hey Boy 2 @ Zeke’s Marina for a great father son trip this weekend!
Went out on the Hey Boy II but the captain of bad habits drove the boat, Austin was the deckhand both did an awesome job and were great guys. Caught 35 fish.. enjoyed every minute of it, will return next time bringing my wife along!!!!! More...
Just wanted to say thank you again for the amazing trip!! Your accommodations were top notch and captain Nick and deck hand David of "daddy's baby" were phenomenal! ! They put us on fish and we had an amazing time that will never be forgotten!!! Will definitely be coming back. Thank you again!!! More...
Monica Renee McFry
We wanted to fish while we were there for a few days but the weather conditions was not that great. So, we decided to just visit some marinas to see what they were catching before we booked. When we got to Zeke’s, we talked to the lady in the office and she was very nice and helpful so we booked a trip for the next day. We went out with Captain Colby with Killin Time Charters. He knew exactly where to fish and put us on some huge Reds and Jacks! We ended up having an awesome time and we will definitely use him again! More...
Brian and Dillon were amazing. They made sure everyone had a great time, and caught lots of fish. I would definitely recommend Zeke' s as a have to do while in Gulf Shores. I am looking forward to our next visit. More...
Best Charter Boat my family and I have been on. Very helpful and Kind staff. Captain hit very good spots and we really enjoyed it. We have been on alot of Charters but this blows all of them out of the water. WE will travel back from Tennessee to fish with them again. Thanks so much Zekes!!! More...
I have enjoyed both trips I have made on Zeek's Lady and Hey Babe! Wonderful every trip and I definitely will be back.
Leslie N Nathan Woodson
Our family always has a good time out on the Jamie G every year with Captain Gary and the mate Greg when we go out while being on vacation! ! Could definitely rate this above a 5 star! More...
Trina Redding Jennings
This place is so delicious! The chef here is amazing! He blackened and fried our fish we caught earlier that day. $12 a plate paid for coleslaw, hushpuppies and French fries with our fish. We got the kids the chicken and shrimp Alfredo and it was fantastic too. I highly recommend! More...
Anne Payne- Janson
We had a great time! We went on the Bottom Fishing charter and caught a lot of nice Vermillion Snapper. The crew was awesome, Captain Dave kept us on the fish and away from the squall and 6 or 8 water spouts that formed around us. We will definitely be back on our next trip down! More...
Great place to go to. Friendly staff. If you want a charter boat, I highly recommend the Island Girl. Chase is one of the best hands I have ever seen. Fantastic trip.
Went out with a friend of mine with the men of his church. The Captain and crew oboard the Aquastar were great. Caught out limit and brought plenty home. Thanks guys.
Brooke Abernathy Hayes
Our boys went out with Doug and R.C. on the Eagle Express yesterday and had a blast! They caught red snapper & one shark. Thanks for a great day of fishing!
Michael L. Jannett
Great fishing. Great captain. Great deckhand. Private boat. 13 people.
Always have a great time while in gulf shores. Zeke's always puts us on the fish. Love it!
Wonderful staff and a great experience. Captain Mandy Prell and deck hand Ben were first class. We will be coming back.
My first offshore fishing trip,was AWESOME! The crew was very helpful, the boat was cool ! I had an awesome day! Hope to do it again next year! Thanks y'all for making my trip A GREAT EXPERIENCE! More...
It was very nice an food was good, bit you has to wait an it was loud.
Went out on Zeke's Lady and had a blast. Our group caught 12 red snapper and had a great time. Only cost $15 to have it all filet.
Best charter fishing in the area !!!!a must if you love to fish...
Had an awesome time aboard the "Boll Weivel"!! we caught our limit and can't wait to grill some snapper.
Guys trip. Booked a 12 hr on the Legacy with Captain Mandy.The boat was a little smaller and older than we expected, but it worked. The crew: Captain Mandy, the old man 1st mate, Dillon the deck hand and RJ (8-9 yr old helper) related to one of the crew members somehow.We got there around 5:45 am departed around 6.Initial stop was for fishing for bait. Quick stop caught what we needed and moved on to the first spot.We trolled 2 rods in route to the first spot. First hit big mackerel. Had to get the belt out and a buddy pulled it in the boat.Moving on to the first spot. Same lure same trolling rod hits. Big amberjack. Unfortunately out of season. It whipped another buddy to pull that thing in. He sat at the first spot. Still in snapper season. After a few spots we were at our limit with some of the biggest snapper I've ever caught.After snapper we moved on to search for grouper. We caught a few trigger fish (not in season) had to throw them back. We caught a couple more enormous out of season amberjacks.Found some white snapper put several in the boat, hit a dozen or so vermillion snapper. Moving on in search of grouper.At our last spot (which we didn't have time to hit) we hit a honey hole. 5 or 6 big red grouper, 4 or 5 scamp.We ended up with over 300 lbs of fish between 7 guys.Everybody caught something.The captain took us to the last spot really on her own time to make sure we got some grouper.Dillon and the Old Man worked their butts off, cutting bait, setting up rods, giving advise, taking fish off etc.When we got back an hr / hr and a half later than we were supposed to Dillon then cleaned all of our fish for .30 cents a lb. We gladly tipped 20 percent and paid the kid for the fish cleaning and he was overwhelmed and extremely appreciative.We had absolutely perfect weather. We went on Friday June 9, 2017. The minimum reported 2 ft seas were practically non existent. It was like glass in some spots. The Old Man and Dillon are father and son and they have a great relationship with Mandy the captain. Their common goal was to put us on some good fish. I've been fishing before and they could have cared less if we caught anything or not. If we weren't getting hits a minute or less after we dropped the crew took it personally and made adjustments. Further, Mandy wasn't afraid to jump down to the deck and help out and get her hands dirty, which you don't see out of a lot of captains. They said we had the best haul and the best average they've had this season.They got in a few pictures with us displaying our catch. While Dillon cleaned our fish Mandy and the first mate came over and hung out with us.I'd book the Legacy again. I'd absolutely recommend the 12 hr over a 6 hr if you want to catch big fish. We went out 38 miles at our final spot. The further you go the bigger the average fish will be and the more abundant your overall catch will be. We're already talking about planning our next trip. The private charter is the way to go. Forget the party boat. It's not that much more to go private charter with 10 or less guys on a 6-12 hr vs a 6-12 hr party boat and your experience is far better vs fishing on top of someone on a party boat with someone tangling your line on every drop and you get bigger fish and way more of them. More...
Elizabeth Horton Parker
The restaurant and staff were amazing!! I had the tuna steak and it was the best I'd ever had!! Will definitely make this a stop every year!
It was a great experience. Don't look anywhere else these guys are the real deal, plus down to earth, not to stuffy and make sure your having a good time!
We booked a deep sea fishing trip. From the start to the finish the staff is great. The captain and crew of Zekes Lady go the extra mile to make sure you have a good experience. Watching him maneuver the boat around a storm to keep us dry was way cool. The deck hands are pros who give extra help to beginners and those that don't fish much. My son loved his free Zekes t shirt and catching his first snapper. Was worth every cent. More...
Abby Nichole Cantrell
Words cannot describe how much fun I had. This was my first vacation in 3 years since graduating vet school. I've had a really rough past 6 months and this was my first trip just for me. It was worth every penny. Captain Doug Price of Eagle Express took us out and put us on the fish, he made sure we had a great time and made sure I got my picture with our catch which meant the world to me! The deckhands, R.C. and Blake, couldn't have been more helpful!!!! They ran non-stop to make sure we had a blast. I was very thankful for their incite and tips on how to catch more fish. The deckhands couldn't have done anything better and I wouldn't have wanted anyone else helping me. There was plenty of room inside with good a/c and a tv for anyone not wanting to fish or just looking to get a quick nap or break in. I look forward to doing it again! More...
Last minute snapper trip booked the night before on the "cool breeze". Great trip with great staff. Couldn't have been better
We had a great time today, we all cought our limit, and they treated our active service member very good, we will definitely be back, thank you Zeke's
Me and Tammy went on a inshore fishing trip had a wonderful time
Amanda K Kimball
Had a GREAT time yesterday on Zeke's Lady! My first ever experience to go offshore fishing and I had a blast!!! Thank you so much to the deckhands Carlton and Howie and of course to our captain David!! Y'all rocked!!! I'll be back!!!!
This marina is full of great captains and great boats. Would highly recommend for anyone. No matter your skill level as a fisherman, there's a captain and crew waiting for you!
I absolutely love this place had a great time fishing with captain Bryan Reeves thanks for putting us on the fish
Went fishing chartered from Zeke's, great trip, great guide!
Liz Dirst Bainbridge
Had a very nice time! Great crew, Howie, Chase, & Brody on Zeke's Lady...They work very hard! Kudos to them for such patience� Thank you!
I called the very friendly and helpful Marina office on a Tuesday morning. I wanted to charter a smaller 6 man boat. We had 4 in our group so we only needed 2 more. They worked diligently to get us the extra people to make the trip. Friday morning we met our Captain - Keith Andrews and deckhand Zack. The vessel was named Player. Captain Keith suggested a game plan for the day. Instead of looking for the few fish we could keep, He wanted to go after big pulls, aka big fish. This turned out to be a game changer. We caught a lot of fish, Trigger, Red snapper, Amberjack, etc. This was my son Colby's first trip offshore fishing. He is hooked now. Thanks for a great experience ! We will be back soon. Please look at pictures I have uploaded of this great trip. More...
Wonderful friendly staff at the Marina. Well maintained and dependable charter boat fishing services offered.
Did two inshore fishing trips with Capt. Dennis. He is a stand up guy who knows his shit. If you're not catching fish it's not because he isn't trying! We caught a ton of fish (sheepshead, pompano, and red fish) on our first trip. So much we had to throw many back. Our second trip wasnt as good but we still caught our share of reds and a couple sheepshead. Dennis is fun, personable, knowledgeable, and professional. I would HIGHLY recommend him!! More...
We went in mid October and had a great time. Several fish caught, plenty of action. We couldn't keep everything cause of the seasons, but like I said we were constantly reeling them. Would do it again and recommend to others. More...
First off, Chris, aka "luscious locks", made our visit very enjoyable. It's not often these days to find a waiter that is not only naturally good at their job but actually seemed to enjoy it. He did a fantastic job taking care of us. The food was good but didn't stand out above any other seafood place in the area. What I did like was that I didn't feel like I was being taken advantage of when I got the bill. This was a great experience and it was $20 less than a similar restaurant we visited yesterday. I would go back for sure. More...
Zekes is really awesome !! I highly recommend it !!
What a trip is all I can say. Some friends of ours told us they booked with zekes landing so I gave them a call. First class charter company that's for sure. As we walked down to our boat we chartered I looked at every boat , all were very nice , the captains and deck hands keep their boats up. The fishing well, it was great too , only problem was most we caught was out of season nothing you can do about that but keep moving and looking for fish in season if you're wanting to keep some , for us keeping some was just a bonus we wanted to catch fish and we did. So overall I would say they are a 5 star charter service . That my opinion though , based on my trip with our captain and deckhand . So captain Dewitt and Brandon on the C-Rose ,thanks for the awesome trip guys !!!!!! More...
Fantastic Family Day aboard Class Act with Captain Dale and Bill! Cabin has DirecTV and Satellite Radio!Myself, father/brother/sister-in-law, and her boyfriend took the 8 hour trip. We left at 6:30am, spent a quick bit catching the day's bait, then headed to a few different stops to bring some fish off the bottom. Although it was a decent ride (almost 30 miles) out, Billy was super friendly and informative when we asked questions. We caught a fair share of white snapper, grouper, and some "Big Uglies!"I also brought in a King Mackerel on a surprise hit on the trip back into the marina! All Told A GREAT DAY On The Water!!! More...
Went out on a 10 hour trip with water dog.. Had a good time.. Really liked The deckhand Ben. Captain was nice too, can't remember his name. .Equipment was a little old and wore out but overall they put us on fish the best they could.. Second time going out with zekes and prolly will again next time I'm in orange beach.. More...
We've been coming down to fish for the past 16 years-Zeke's just keeps getting better and better! Look forward to this time every year and can't wait for 2017! Thanks, y'all!
Captain Colby was one of a kind. Been on many guided trips, and this surpassed all. Caught great fish, and made a good friendship as well. We will come straight back to Colby next time. Very hardworking guide. More...
My wife and I had the opportunity to go out on Zeke's Lady, Saturday, June 18. We have NEVER been treated so well! The Captain was knowledgable, the Deck Hands were courteous and polite, as well as very helpful. The office staff were above and beyond helpful and We caught fish. I want to personally recommend Zeke's to anyone on the Alabama-Florida coast looking for a fishing excursion. You will not be disappointed! Tom Frazier. More...

It was great there was a hurricane in Florida but still had a great time caught 36 fish
First time fishing offshore for my 19 yr old son and myself and we had a great time. Deck hands and the Captain met us at the dock, explained what they expected of the fishermen and what they would do for us. Shady Lady, 65' & we had 17 fishermen. 2 1/2' swells and partly cloudy with temps in the low 80's. They explained how the reels worked, the best method for using the gear and what to expect. Soon as we hit a spot, the Captain would position the boat and tell everyone to drop their bait to the bottom. Few slow biting spots but overall he kept us on fish all morning. Trigger fish, red snapper (out of season so none kept), ruby lips and a couple other types of snapper. Only problem I saw was that at times the fishing was so fast that the deck hands couldn't keep up with bait but we'd just go to a different bait bucket and grab a hand full. I'd recommend them and would happily fish with them again. Larry More...

We have fished out of Zeke's for years. This year was the 1st 12 hour trip. This year we were on "Cool Change". The Captain and 1st Mate JT we so helpful and made it a great experience!!
Took my girlfriend on her first deep sea fishing trip and decided to go with Zeke's despite all the bad reviews (plus it was the only party/head boat going out) Before we went out we were told there would be 35 people fishing this day and also the waters were going to be pretty rough. We had taken some sea sick pills the night before and right before going out, so we were OK with not getting sick. The waves were bad and a few people did get sick, can't hold that against Zeke. We went out for about a hour and a half then fished for about 30ish minutes at out first stop. My girlfriend and I caught about 8 fish at that stop 3 of which were huge that we kept. We left there and went another 30-40 minutes to another spot. Spot #2 we caught another 10 fish between us, we kept one more gigantic for the stringer. Long story shorter...we stopped one more time, caught fish, and went back to the dock.So as we were pulling in the capt. Came on the speaker to say thanks and to tell us the deck hands work for tips, and how much we should tip them per person (my girlfriend thought this was rude and unnecessary). The deck hands cleaned our 30+ lbs of fish for $10. I was very pleased with the trip, I usually hate fishing on party boats because it's to crowded but I only got tangled one time. Deck hands were cool and attentive. Give it a go, and have fun. More...
Went there for dinner last night. Great seafood at the restaurant which faces the water!!
Niece and nephew went for the first time and had a blast! The crew was great went on an 8 hr trip and caught a ton of fish. Went on Jamey G's boat and like I said the crew was great with them. They want to go back and probably will next trip. More...
We had a great time ;) very friendly and we caught some big fish
The most amazing sunset you'll ever get to watch while eating superb food with a natural beautiful scenery!
Just booked two for ten in the morning for some parasailing..... One more off the bucket list with my beautiful daughter Shanarra Holland...
This place is awesome, if I were you I would book a trip inshore fishing with captain Dennis Treigle. He knows all the spots to fish. If the fish are not biting in one spot, he will find a spot to make sure you and your party get many fish. (Depending on tides and weather). The price is very fair. It's around $350 for two people. Trust me, it's worth it. If you go in the spring, you will catch mostly sheephead, red drums, and possibly some pompano! I go twice a year when I go down there. If you call him and he's booked, he will suggest one of his buddies who also know the area well. These guys know how to make your fishing trip the best! More...
I usually go deep sea fishing every summer. I've gone deep sea fishing or inshore fishing about 13 times in the past 15 years. I must say that this year's trip from Zeke's Landing was the BEST trip I've had. I used Wild Orange Charters and caught lots of fish. I highly recommend this marina. More...
We had a great time on our four hour in shore fishing trip with Captain Hollywood! We went with our two young children and the Captain was wonderful with them both. He was so much fun and even took the time to show our kids the dolphins in the bay! We also caught plenty of fish! He definitely knows his stuff! More...
Took my son on a 6 hour fishing trip on this boat. We planned out trip totally at the last minute. The boat holds 52 fishermen and was a sell out the day of our trip. Like all deep sea fishing charters they provide all the necessary stuff.As soon as we got out of Perdido Pass..."The weather started getting rough, the tiny ship was tossed!"We were out on an EXTREMELY rough water day, I'm talking about 6-12 foot waves the entire time, the boat jerking around like crazy, out of the 52 passengers at least 10 were sick. Not a lot of fish caught, and I didn't see even 1 really impressive fish."If not for the courage of the fearless crew"...That being said, the crew was OUTSTANDING. They worked extra hard to take care of everybody. All of them kept a positive, good and helpful attitude even in the adverse conditions.I would totally go on another fishing excursion on this boat, but I WOULD plan my trip so that I could choose a day with calmer seas.

My boyfriend and I went on a "party boat" for my birthday to experience some deep sea fishing. I had never been, and he had gone when he was muuuuuch younger and so we didn't really know what to expect. The way a party boat works is this: You call, and ask to go on a certain date. If they meet their minimum requirement of 15-20 people (or more), they will leave that morning. We had to wait another day because the day we wanted to go, they had not met their minimum requirement. In any case, we arrived about 20 minutes earlier than what was asked for us. We paid, (it was about $85+tax per person). This includes your bait, license, and trip to and back. This does NOT include the tip for the deckhands, or the $.30/lb cleaning fee for all that you have caught.Our party boat had less than 20 people, so it wasn't too crowded. There was a young kid, probably less than 13, that was there, but the majority were average aged couples. You are supposed to bring a small cooler with you, and it can have anything you want---no illegal drugs of course, but I brought beer, water, and in my beach bag, brought jerky and snacks. A lot of other people brought sandwiches, etc.We were informed by our Captain that because the water was cold, we'd have to go out a lot farther south than normal. This ended up being a 2 hour boat ride out. While that is okay, considering that it was a 6 hour trip, it definitely took a lot longer to get back to shore.Once we were at the destination (the Captain uses a fish locator), we were able to drop our lines. This is a drop only fishing trip. No casting, and there were 2 hooks to each pole. The bait we used had a certain name, but I just called it squid. I would definitely recommend bringing either santi-wipes, or a small towel to wipe your hands with. I ended up getting squid ink embedded in my nails. No biggie, just giving you an idea of what to expect.Once we dropped our lines, people were catching fish here and there! The majority of what we caught were Vermillion or Lane Snapper----red Snapper was not in season (we were about a few weeks shy), and I didn't see any fish that was incredibly huge. Once you catch a fish, you call the deckhand over, and they are very quick and were also very nice throughout the trip. I even got tangled up in another fishers line, and they were right there to help.The only thing I didn't enjoy was that we were only there at the first spot for what seemed like 20 minutes. The Captain told us to bring the lines back up, and then we were onto another place. This happened 2 more times, and while I thoroughly enjoyed myself, I couldn't help but feel that I wanted more time to fish!They do state that this is for people who just want to try and see what its' like. They offer Charter boats, which are quite expensive, but if you get a big group to go out and split the cost, it is definitely a good choice. You can also trolley, which allows you to cast out your pole as opposed to just dropping down to the ocean floor and reeling back up.We got to see a shark (very small), and I even had 2 fish on each hook, but in my excitement, forgot to bring my pole on board and lost one....All in all, we caught a total of 10 fish. Once we headed back towards the shore, (we tipped our deckhand $20), we got to the dock and the deckhands were able to cut and filet our fish, and even place them in a ziplock bag. Hence, do not forget to bring a cooler with ice. You don't want those fish to just sit out in the hot sun.Once we arrived back home, we grilled up the fish into some fish tacos, and they were amazing. There is nothing like catching your own food and eating it!I give this 4 stars because I felt like we could of had more fishing time if we weren't taken 2 hours+ down south into the gulf. I would do it again, but I think I would try the Charter fishing trip next time. More...
