L4K Charters

L4K Charters provides amazing fishing experiences in Niceville and Destin, both inshore and nearshore. Captain Rob Hansill is a Florida native and a retired US Marine. Capt. Rob holds a Masters endorsement on his Merchant Mariner Credential, Title 46 U.S. Code, and is certified by The United States Coast Guard National Maritime Center.

Captain Rob is passionate about helping people find their joy and manage grief. Only one day on the water can break a cycle of sadness. Families touched by tragedy, cancer survivors, and combat veterans have priority. Wounded Warriors can fish for free.

All aboard “At Ease” – a pristine 22’ Sea Hunt center console launched in 2017. Powered by a 200 HP Yamaha engine, she’s the perfect vessel for a smooth ride. She features comfortable seating space, a private toilet, and a shaded area. It’s great for families with children, first-time anglers, as well as hardcore anglers.

There’s enough room for 5 guests on board, and 4 anglers can fish under your captain’s license. This makes his vessel the perfect choice if you have a mixed group, and are traveling with guests or family members who just want to come along for the ride.

There’s a variety of trips to choose from – it all depends how long you want to be on the water, what you want to catch, or your skill level. One trip that you will rarely find available anywhere else is a 2-hour Memory-Maker, which is a great option if you’re bringing your kids along. You can also consider a night trip to avoid crowds and the heat.

A fishing license, equipment, and bait are included. You only need to bring drinks and snacks.

All are welcome for a day “At Ease.” Find the trip for you and contact L4K Charters today!

I was born in South Florida, grew-up in Central Florida, and stepped away for a 22-year career as a United States Marine. I retired in 2012 and began a career of ministry. Combat and personal tragedy shaped my passion for helping people find their joy and manage grief. I fished all over the world and find peace on the water. I became a credentialed captain to give others the chance to smile again as I did.
