Charter Boat Stress Relief

Hop aboard Charter Boat Stress Relief and join Captain Scott for an action-packed trip! You’ll be exploring the famous Destin fishing grounds that his family has been fishing for generations. Bring the whole family along and see for yourselves just why this small fishing village manages to draw in anglers from all over the world each year.

Your fishing boat for the day will be a 40’ Gulf Craft sportfisher, powered by twin 350 HP Caterpillar engines. She comes equipped with all the necessary electronics such as GPS and fishfinder. These will make sure you get on top of the hottest fishing spots for the day. Additionally, the boat has a private electric toilet, as well as a flybridge to help you spot pelagics like Kingfish, Mahi Mahi, and Blackfin Tuna while trolling.

Following in the footsteps of his father, Capt. Scott started his career around 30 years ago and has a deep appreciation for the Gulf of Mexico. Although he welcomes beginners and experienced anglers alike, Captain Scott admits that he finds special joy in helping kids land their first catch.

Children need to be at least 6 years old to come aboard, and will be provided with life vests. The captain is a great teacher and will make sure that each guest is given all the attention necessary to get the fish they’re after!

If you’d like your catch cleaned and filleted the first mate is happy to do so, with a customary tip of 15%–20%. The parking fee at the meetup spot is $10 per car.

The only thing left for you to do is to pack a cooler of drinks and snacks, grab some sunscreen, and block out a date for a trip you won’t forget!

    Experience Destin fishing during the peak summer months! You'll kick off the trip by catching live bait nearshore, before lowering the trolling lines as you head further offshore. The 45 minutes that it takes to get to the reefs are a prime time for catching large pelagics like King Mackerel or even Sharks! Follow this up by bottom fishing for the Red, White, and Mangrove Snapper that Destin made its name on! All you should bring is a cooler with some drinks and snacks. Everything else will be provided.

I've been a Captain in Destin now for over 29 years. I am a 2nd generation captain. My father was a captain here in Destin for 22 years and helped start the Destin Fisherman's Co-op. I have a passion for fishing and I enjoy talking and meeting different people. Fishing has been a way of life for me since I was 8 years old. The Gulf of Mexico is a very sacred place to me and I sure enjoy taking families and especially kids fishing and seeing their faces when they catch that first big one. My grandfather, father, and I were fishing buddies. I no longer have them with me but I treat every trip as though they were with me and ask myself: "Where would I fish and how would I act?" This has become my way of doing business.
