Double Time Charters

Double Time Charters specializes in fishing adventures at unbeatable rates out of Destin, the ‘World’s Luckiest Fishing Village.” With trips ranging from four to eight hours, you will surely have something that suits your specific needs.

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. Your potential catches will depend on the season, including but not limited to Almaco Jack, Amberjack, Jack Crevalle, Red Snapper, Mangrove Snapper, Vermillion Snapper, Triggerfish, Sheepshead, Redfish, Black Drum, Grouper, Scamp, Black Seabass, San Perch, Bank Seabass, Cobia, Tripletail… and the list just keeps going!

Take as many fish species off your personal bucket list as possible. Bottom fish, troll, and sight fish for Mahi Mahi, Tuna, Wahoo, Shark, Porgy, Bluefish, and Ladyfish.

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!

The trips come with quality tackle, ice, fishing license, and the fish cleaning and bagging. Your will need to bring your own drinks, snacks, proper clothing, and a camera.

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.
