Going fast!

Captain Chris Wiwi and Double W Charters will work hard to make your next fishing adventure the trip of a lifetime! With over 20 years of guiding experience, your captain is more than ready to help you explore the secrets of Panama City Beach waters.

If you’re looking for a premier destination for inshore and coastal light tackle fishing, you’ve come to the right place. You will get to some of the hottest fishing grounds in comfort and style thanks to the 24’ Pathfinder, rigged with a 300 HP Yamaha engine. She is fully equipped to take up to 4 persons to new fishing horizons, and all-Shimano fishing gear will be provided for you as well.

You can go fly fishing on the flats, test your bottom fishing skills, or give offshore angling a chance — Capt. Chris will gladly take you where you want to go. On your to-catch list could be anything from Speckled Trout and Redfish, to Mahi Mahi, King Mackerel, Red Snapper, and even Silver King, depending on what you’re targeting.

You can choose how much time you will spend on the water, but naturally, longer hours mean catching more fish, and who doesn’t want that? Whatever your strategy, one thing’s for sure, you’re not going home empty-handed.

Want to help your little ones fall in love with fishing? Feel free to bring them along, Capt. Chris has all the safety equipment they might require. This is an excellent opportunity to have a fun family outing you will cherish in the years to come.

What else do you need to take with you? Great mood, some drinks, snacks, lunch for longer trips, and let Capt. Chris take care of everything else. Double W Charters makes sure you have the best time reeling in your next personal record, so don’t miss a chance to try out their premier service!
