About the Captain

Tim Adams
Destin, Florida, United States
Member since June 2015
U.S.C.G. licensed captain since 1986, 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.

Captain Tim was fantastic. I had been on a chartered trip before and took three “first time” teenagers for my son’s birthday. Simply put, Captain Tim was exceptional at handling 4 seperate fisherman while simultaneously piloting the boat. His experience and friendly demeanor made our trip as easy as we could ask for and he knew where to find the fish. I would absolutely recommend him for any small group wanting to fish the Gulf Coast.

I’m so glad you enjoyed the experience! Kyle and the boys were great! Hope to see you guys again sometime, Pensacola isn’t very far to drive from! Here are some images of Kyle and Dawson with sea monsters in their possession! Tell Josh to come back and be my first mate!!!

4 hour trip with captain Tim was well worth the time. Captain was very knowledgeable and was great with my sons and their friends. We caught several king and spainish mackerel that were all keepers.  We will book with him again

I took the kids fishing for the 4th of July on the Double Time.  It was a gorgeous day on the water and Captain Tim put us on the fish! We caught our limit of red snapper plus a couple of good mackerel as well as some other fish too small to keep. We cooked our catch of the day red snapper for our holiday dinner. Captain Tim is knowledgeable about the area and the fish. He was great with the kids both encouraging and educating. I highly recommend a trip with Captain Tim!

Thanks, John! I had a great time with you and “the kids”! I love to see the look on the young angler’s faces when they hook into a big one. They can’t believe how hard they pull! See you again, friend.
