Charter Boat Malia Ann

Known as “the fishing capital of America,” Destin is the place to be for outstanding fishing voyages. Charter Boat Malia Ann exploits these waters to the max, meaning you’re in for a real treat if you book now. Captain Zach Wolfe enthusiastically welcomes you to come aboard and discover Destin’s famous fishery for yourself. There are trips for the whole family in this stunning setting, and you’re encouraged to take advantage now!

The “Malia Ann” is a 26’ classic Mako center console that has recently been restored to offer you the ultimate fishing experience. Her twin 150 HP Yamaha engines provide a fast and reliable ride to the fish and her sturdy build will provide a strong base to fish from. She is licensed to carry up to 6 anglers, and her spacious deck area will provide a comfortable base for your whole group. She truly is a great vessel to explore the open seas.

Trips take place in the Gulf of Mexico, where you’ll troll and bottom fish for a variety of delicious table fish and excellent game species. On shorter trips, you’ll go after King Mackerel, Snappers, and Groupers, among other nearshore species, while on offshore trips you can target anything from Mahi Mahi to Tuna. If you’d rather fish the inshore areas, Capt. Zachary would be happy to guide you along the beautiful coastline.

You’ll catch live bait on the way to the fishing spots, or you can purchase it prior to coming aboard. With rods, reels, and tackle provided, along with a choice of artificial lures, there’s nothing left to do but get booking! At the end of every trip, customers even get to take their catch home with them, cleaned and prepared by the captain – what a treat! So come and have a great day fishing and make some lifelong memories aboard the Malia Ann.
