Alan Sawaya, Captain at Crystal River Fishing Adventure

Looking for an exciting fishing adventure in Florida? Look no further than Crystal River Fishing Charters, helmed by the experienced and knowledgeable Captain Alan Sawaya. Located in the heart of Crystal River, Captain Alan offers a wide range of fishing trips including deepsea and inshore fishing charters, ensuring that anglers of all skill levels can enjoy the thrill of the catch.


With Crystal River's pristine waters, anglers can enjoy the excitement of light tackle fishing, where the challenge of reeling in a big catch is amplified by the use of lighter gear. Captain Alan is an expert at utilizing light tackle techniques to catch a variety of fish species, including Cobia, Gag Grouper, Red Snapper, Redfish, Greater Amberjack, Hogfish, Red Grouper, King Mackerel, Sea Trout, Snook, and Sea Bass.

Inshore fishing is a popular option for those looking to catch fish in shallower waters, closer to the shore. Nearshore fishing, on the other hand, takes anglers out to deeper waters where bigger catches can be found. No matter what your preference is, Captain Alan can tailor the trip to your specific needs and desires.


One of the best things about booking a trip with Crystal River Fishing Charters is that all fishing equipment and licenses are included, so all you need to bring is your enthusiasm and a willingness to catch some fish. Additionally, the trips are child-friendly, making it a great activity for the whole family to enjoy.


The boat itself, a 23' Parker Pilothouse powered by a 250HP Yamaha engine, can comfortably carry up to six guests, ensuring a personalized and intimate experience. The Pilothouse offers plenty of shade and protection from the elements, making it an ideal vessel for fishing year-round. Captain Alan's knowledge and experience of the local waters are unparalleled, and he is always eager to share his passion for fishing with his guests. With his guidance and expertise, you can be sure that you'll have an unforgettable fishing adventure in Crystal River.

With top-of-the-line equipment, a child-friendly environment, and the opportunity to catch a variety of fish species using light tackle techniques, this is an experience that you won't want to miss.

Captain Al took us to the perfect spot to pick scallops. We got 10 gallons with ease and even showed us a very beautiful underwater cave that held plenty of grouper and snapper in great size. I have been scalloping multiple times and I can say this was the best experience I’ve had.

This was our first time scalloping and we could not have asked for a better experience. My son (8)was a bit nervous and the captain got in the water with him and showed him the ropes the whole time. He had the best experience and this will be a trip he will never forget. Anyone thinking about scalloping, I would HIGHLY recommend him for your trip. Great for first timers and children. ☺️

If you are looking to go scalloping, there is no reason to go with any other company. His prices are competitive, and he will get you on the scallops. That's the simple facts.Al is a nice guy to spend the day with, he has a nice boat, its clean and fast, and he puts you on the scallops. Even with our late season trip he was able to put us on spots where we could fill our bags, and if there were no scallops, he had no problem moving us. He even stayed out with us a little longer to make sure we got enough and had a good time. He even helped us clean them since the normal person at the dock wasn't working. A+ to Al @ scallop adventures - Thanks for sharing in our fun, and making it a really good time. Oh, and he even gave my daughter a t-shirt.! This is a good guy.

We had such an amazing trip with Captain Al. He helped us in and out of the water and had plenty of gear if we needed anything at all. He jumped in the water with us and celebrated every scallop we got, especially the orange ones. He kept an eye on everyone in our party to make sure we were all safe from other boats. We got plenty of scallops and made memories of a lifetime with our teenage daughters.

Had such a great experience with Captain Al! I’m from Iowa and I have never been snorkeling before and he taught me how to dive down to get the scallops! The water was shallow, 4-6 feet deep, so perfect for those first time snorkelers like me! Highly recommend booking this while you’re on vacation!

My family and friends had an AMAZING afternoon hunting scallops. We harvested nearly three gallons. Captain Al is helpful, outgoing and fun.
