Charter Boat Phoenix

When it comes down to the best deep sea fishing opportunities the ‘Luckiest Fishing Village’ in the world has to offer, Charter Boat Phoenix is an excellent choice. Launching out of Destin, Florida, the Phoenix puts anglers of all ages and skill levels on top of the hottest bite around. Kids under 5 years of age even fish for free!

The Phoenix is a big, fast, clean, and spacious 55’ G&S offshore boat. Built back in 1987, she was overhauled in 2012 and comes powered by a pair of 500 HP Cummins engines. This beauty is fully outfitted with top-notch electronics, including a Simrad GPS with weather overlay, Furuno fishfinder and a 64-mile radar, a VHF radio, and other technologies.

The Phoenix can comfortably take up to 20 anglers to fish in comfort and style. She features a restroom with a freshwater shower, an air-conditioned cabin, a V-berth, 2 big fish boxes, a small refrigerator, and all the comforts of home. Plus, she even has a 24’ flat screen TV!

The crew has tailored a variety of packages that will meet your specific needs. There is a trip for anyone, from introducing younger anglers to the art of fishing to an offshore extravaganza for the die-hard fishermen.

Spend your day inshore trolling for Cobia, Spanish Mackerel, and Kings. Mix it up a little bit with live bait trolling on longer trips or bottom fish for Grouper, Triggerfish, and Snapper. Venture out to the deeper water to get your hands on Amberjack, Marlin, Sailfish, Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, and who knows what else?

All licenses, top of the line tackle, and bait will be included in the price.

    This is a great trip for the novice fisherman, or for the family just wanting to try out some saltwater fishing for the first time. This is also a great choice for those who don't have time to go all day fishing in their vacation schedule. We may go trolling or bottom fishing and most of the time no more than 15 miles from the Port.

I grew up in Destin as a child and loved to fish. I fished on the piers, in the bay, and on local lakes, you name it around here I fished it. I caught a 9 ft. bull shark on crystal beach pier when I was in the 7th grade. I was destined to become a professional fisherman and a Captain. I caught the first tarpon ever to be caught from a boat in Destin and then later caught the first one to be ever caught on a charter boat in Destin. I was President of the Destin Charter Boat Association for 14 years, served on the Board for National Association of Charter Boat Operators, needless to say I have been very involved in this business to ensure that it remains a viable fishery for all us to enjoy. I am very proud of my vessel the PHOENIX, so come join me for a great fishing experience.
