Destin-Fort Walton Beach

Next step charter fishing in the Gulf

Ages: 8-12 13 plus
Price: $$$
Duration: Full Day

Have a little more fishing experience and older kids who are up for a fun challenge? Your family is ready to get in on the action charter fishing in the Gulf! Plus, Destin-Fort Walton Beach has the fastest access to deep sea fishing in Florida since the 100 Fathom Curve is closer to our shoreline than anywhere else.

Head offshore with experienced captains like Kevin Moak of Hey Baby who have been fishing our local waters since they were kids themselves. They’ll not only make everyone feel safe and comfortable, your captain will take you out to their “secret” spots to get you on fish quickly. Onboard the Discipleship with Captain Brandy Miles (a mom of 5) you’ll start with catching baitfish and learning about the mahi, blackfish, sailfish and other fish you can get on a line.

Back on land, it’s time for the most delicious part–have your fresh catch blackened, fried or grilled at one of our local restaurants that offers cook your catch!

TIP: Worried about what to bring on your trip? Your captain will have your bait, tackle and licenses covered. You should plan to bring, snacks (lunch if needed), drinks, and sunscreen (no spray) for a long day on the water. Ask your captain for anything else you may need.
