Destin Inshore Guides

314 Harbor Boulevard
Destin FL, United States

In case you’re still wondering why Destin is considered to be ‘The World’s Luckiest Fishing Village,’ this charter will answer all of your questions by taking you on an unforgettable fishing adventure. The guides of Destin Inshore Guides are masters of light tackle and kids fishing so look no further if you want to provide your little ones with a life-changing experience.

You can bring up to three family members or fishing buddies on your trip - this 24’ Sea Hunt bay boat can accommodate up to four anglers of all ages and experience levels. ‘Reel Lucky’ was built in 2016, and everything on board is brand new - from navigational electronics to safety gear. You will also find an ice-box and a live bait tank on board. The vessel is very kid and lady-friendly, and it offers a bathroom inside of the console.

Destin Inshore Guides specializes in inshore and nearshore fishing but don’t think you have to spend hours going further from the shore to catch big game fish because the coastal waters are teeming with numerous species. So whether you’d like to explore the inshore waters of Choctawhatchee Bay or nearshore waters of the Gulf, your guides will put you on top of the hottest bite around.

All the trips can be custom tailored to your desires, and depending on your decision and the season, you’ll be targeting Spanish Mackerel, Redfish, Speckled Trout, Snapper, and so much more. No matter if you want to spend the whole day on the water or just a couple of hours, if you’re a beginner or an experienced angler, your guide will help you to find and reel your fish.

Destin Inshore Guides doesn’t have an age limit and offers special trips for kids and their parents. You can keep the catch within season regulations, and catch and release is also allowed. Your guide will provide you with everything you’ll need for a successful day on the water, from rods and reels to lures and live bait (prepared beforehand).
