Whether you want to stay in the Choctawhatchee Bay or head to the Gulf of Mexico, you have found the right place. Captain Tim will put his talent to work for you. No matter how far you have to go for the hot bite, you will always stay in sight of land.

Double Time Charters will take you fishing for a variety of reef and pelagic species.

Double Trouble Charters will take you out aboard a 25’ World Cat power catamaran. This is a quiet and stable fishing machine with twin 150 HP Yamaha 4-stroke outboards. The boat is outfitted with navigational and fish finding electronics, as well as other professional accessories. There is a Cobia tower with full controls, an ice-box for the catch and a cooler for drinks, and a porta-potty for the lady anglers. All aboard!

Captain since 1986, I have been running SCUBA and fishing charters continuously since that time. I have been a Scuba diving instructor since 1985, I don't teach anymore, but still dive when I am not fishing! I absolutely love the marine life of the seas, I'm still fascinated by the diversity of it as well. My degree is in Biology so I naturally am drawn to the salt water and all its critters which reside and swim there.

Me and my son love to fish and Captain Tim made my son’s first guided Saltwater trip one he will never forget.  Tim did a excellent job with us and put us on the fish!  He is a very knowledgeable Captain and was great at answering any questions or correcting techniques.  Tim was awesome with my son, very positive and encouraging, Thanks Tim!                                  I will definitely book a trip with Capt. Tim again!
