Saltwater Charters – Alibi

Whether you’re a hardcore angling enthusiast or a family looking to experience fishing for the first time, Saltwater Charters has a lot to offer! Team up with this friendly and skilled crew and you’ll be on the hottest bite in no time.

From Snapper to Jacks, or Mahi Mahi to Tuna, this charter company lets you choose between a variety of trips. Trolling and bottom fishing are the most used techniques on these expeditions, and if you book an excursion that lasts 8 hours or more, you can combine several types of fishing.

None of this would be possible without a solid boat to take you to the fish hideouts, and your captain has just the thing. Come aboard his 42’ Bertram sport fisher with twin 450 HP Cummins engines and you’ll be fishing in comfort and style.

She’s a lean fishing machine that’s spacious enough for 6 people to battle their catch at the same time, as well as relaxing between the bites. The boat has all the comforts of home, with an air-conditioned salon, a multimedia system, a private bathroom, a kitchen, and a resting area.

When it comes to the fishing equipment, you’ll have top-of-the-line Shimano and Penn gear at your disposal, as well as a live bait well, a flybridge, and outriggers. The first mate will be there to help with everything you need for a successful day on the water. He works for tips, so 15–20% gratuity is appreciated.

The crew will go out of their way to make sure you and your family have a wonderful time fishing with them. They will provide all the necessary safety equipment and will even clean your catch for your convenience. All you have to do is bring some food and drinks for the trip.

Find out from your own experience with Saltwater Charters why Destin is dubbed as “the world’s luckiest fishing village”!
