Book Me A Charter

Bountiful bay waters, rivers teeming with fish, and inlets with hidden fishing spots, Apalachicola has it all. It also has Book Me A Charter, a local charter company that knows the hottest fishing spots in all the bays, rivers, and inlets around!

Climb aboard their 22’ SeaFox, constructed recently in 2016 - no need to worry about outdated amenities on this boat. She’s powered by a 175 HP Yamaha engine, giving her a max cruise speed of 30 knots. You can bring up to 3 other anglers with you since she can hold 4 anglers fishing in comfort.

Join Captain Dwayne Allen as he takes you fishing through the inshore waters, as well as the flats and backcountry inlets of Florida. You can expect to go after Black Drum, Redfish, Tripletail, Flounder, Gag Grouper, Speckled Trout, Black Seabass, and other species. Spinning, jigging, and popping with light tackle is something the customers can do, as well as bottom fishing or Flounder gigging.

The charter provides all necessary equipment to the customers. There is no minimum age policy for children and young anglers are welcome on board. Live bait is available free of charge and prepared for the client before the trip. Beer and wine are allowed on board, but moderation is advised - the Captain retains the right to bring the boat back if safety becomes a concern.
