Spend a day on the water in Florida and have a fantastic angling experience with Emerald Coast Charters! Starting out of Destin, you and the crew will explore the fish-rich nearshore and offshore waters, reefs, and wrecks that offer you plenty of opportunities to land a great catch. Hop aboard the Discipleship, a vessel equipped with everything your family needs to be comfortable and safe. With over 15 years of experience navigating the gulf coast waters, the captain knows the best fishing spots and she’ll make sure you have a remarkable time catching big fish and making memories of a lifetime!

Your journey will start on the Discipleship, a restored 46’ Viking flybridge boat big enough to sit up to 12 anglers. Its mighty engine is a twin 500 HP Detroit that can reach a maximum cruising speed of 12 knots. Apart from being rigged with modern, full-featured navigation technology, the Discipleship is equipped with outriggers, downriggers, and a livewell. To maximize your comfort, you can use the onboard kitchen, toilet, shower, flybridge, and beds. The boat is also modified so it can welcome guests in wheelchairs, it’s air-conditioned, and it features a refrigerator and an icebox. Finally, there will be a first mate present aboard to give you any assistance you may need.

On your trip, you can go after Wahoo, Snapper, Grouper, Kingfish, Bonito, as well as many other fun-to-catch prized species. You’ll chase them on light and heavy tackle by bottom and deep sea fishing, trolling, spinning, and jigging. Kids are more than welcome to join in and you can choose whether you’ll just release the fish you’ve caught or keep it and take it home.

The captain will cover you for all the fishing gear and licenses you’ll need, as well as clean and fillet your catch. Before you head out to the boat, just make sure that you’ve packed some food and drinks.

Come join a fishing adventure in Destin, Emerald Coast Charters is eagerly waiting for you!

My father has over forty years of experience as a captain in Destin, Florida. I learned so much from him. I have been working the waters in Destin for over a decade, and have been running my own boat for the past four years. I most enjoy teaching people about the waters and the different types of creatures. Our boat offers much more than fishing, you'll get the full "5th Day" experience.
