Family Tradition Charters

Beck Avenue
Panama City FL, United States

Family Tradition Charters is a family oriented business with 5 generations of experience. We are in Historic St. Andrews on Smith’s Yacht Basin right off Beck Avenue. Historic St. Andrews is a quick 3-mile trip across the Hathaway Bridge from Panama City Beach.

The Makin Memories, a US Coastguard certified vessel, carries up to 42 passengers. She is 65 feet long and very roomy for your crew. From a 4 ton AC unit, the Satellite TV (where you won’t miss a game or race), and fully equipped bathroom including shower. Showcasing the most up to date Furuno Electronics (fish finders, RADAR, GPS, and chart plotters) the Makin Memories is entirely designed for the comfort and entertainment of the guests while hitting the hottest fishing spots on St. Andrews Bay.

Fishing since 1895, the Raffield Family has made it their life’s mission to continue the family business of fishing. Capt. Leveral not only runs Family Tradition Charters, he also represents a family legacy.
