Sun Chasing Charters will take you and your guests on an exciting family-friendly offshore fishing adventure. Come along with Captain Jennifer or Captain Wade, both USCG licensed 25-ton master captains, and have a memorable fishing trip in Fort Walton Beach, Florida. Sun Chasing Charters has many years of experience on the beautiful Emerald Coast and encourages all ages to come and enjoy what it has to offer. Come fish on a brand-new, clean boat with an expert and cordial crew guiding you!

The boat you’ll fish from is a 30’ Tidewater center console that runs on two 300 HP Yamaha engines and can carry up to 6 anglers. Thanks to the mighty engine and the full-featured navigation technology, you’ll reach the fish in no time. The boat’s got a toilet with a sink and shower, uses a wireless trolling motor, and has also got an ice-box. The onboard fishing gear includes two livewells and outriggers.

You can target Mahi Mahi, Scamp Grouper, Red Grouper, Lane Snapper, Alamo Jack, King Mackerel, and many more species. Using light and heavy tackle, you’ll attract them by bottom and deep sea fishing, trolling, and jigging. If you want to, you can keep all the fish you catch. The crew gladly welcomes all the kids aboard, so feel free to bring them on your trip.

Your captain will provide you with all the fishing gear as well as licenses, and will even clean and fillet your catch. The only things you’ll need to bring are your favorite food and drinks.

Come visit Sun Chasing Charters and experience a true fishing adventure in Florida!
