Captain Lionel’s Nearshore Fishing

4-hour nearshore fishing trip and eco-adventure for beginners plus a VIP lunch at The Gulf


Reel in some fun during this private nearshore fishing trip and eco-adventure aboard Lion’s Tale Adventures! Ideal for first-timers, this Pack combines one-on-one fishing instruction from Captain Lionel with a VIP lunch at The Gulf on Okaloosa Island.


At a glance:

  • All anglers will enjoy this 4-hour nearshore fishing excursion with just you, your family and Captain Lionel aboard his boat, Lion’s Tale Adventures.
  • What’s nearshore fishing? Unlike offshore fishing, nearshore action happens in a narrow stretch between the surf and a short-range that is always in sight of land.
  • This morning trip starts at 7am–the perfect time to look for wildlife (dolphins!) as you cruise to Captain Lionel’s favorite fishing spots.
  • Your group will get one-on-one fishing instruction from a true fishing expert.
  • To celebrate your family’s new fishin’ skills, the team at The Gulf will welcome you to a reserved bayside table for your choice of delicious eats including blackened mahi tacos and chicken tenders.
  • The Gulf is more than a restaurant–they offer a wide-open space with lawn games for your kids to play while you sit back and enjoy the view of the Choctawhatchee Bay.

First-time fishermen, this Pack is for you! This trip is for smaller groups (up to 4 people) and is ideal for ages 5+. For more seasoned anglers, this trip still allows a variety of fish with the chance for something new (like sight fishing).
