One of a Kind Charter Fishing

314 Harbor Boulevard
Destin FL, United States

One of a Kind Charter Fishing offers trips for 20+ passengers out of Destin, Florida. Get your friends and family together and come out on the water for anything from a four to a 48 hour trip in the magnificent Gulf of Mexico.

You will be fishing from a 49 ft boat that has plenty of space for fishing or just hanging out in the climate-controlled cabin. Featuring a clean restroom and plenty of entertainment, this boat is for more than just fishing. Step aboard and see just how comfortable a large boat can get.

Whichever trip you choose, you will be shown the best techniques for catching the species that call the Gulf of Mexico home. Captain Chris Michelson has been fishing the area for over 30 years and will take you to the best spots to catch Red Snapper (in season), as well as huge Groupers and tasty King Mackerel. Whether you are an avid fisherman or are just taking your first trip, the crew guarantee you will have a great time. Once you have fished with them once, you will be coming back year after year!

All you need to bring is a cooler with your food and drinks, your sunscreen and cameras. Tackle, licenses, and dead bait are supplied, along with a friendly 1st mate who will get everything ready and help you along the way.

Your mate will handle the fish and make sure they meet local requirements. Upon return to the dock, he will hang your fish on the board for a great photo, and then fillet them so all you have to do is cook and eat. Tipping for the first mate is NOT including in the trip price - 15%- 20% is customary. Please take care of your Mate just as he will take care of you!

Come aboard and get ready for a One of a Kind fishing experience!

I started fishing here in Destin around the age of 5. I began on the Okaloosa Island Pier and my passion for fishing grew from there. I eventually started going out on boats and seen the opportunities that was away from land. My first job on a charter boat was actually as a cook at the age of 15. I was allowed to fish if the customers weren't ordering food lol. I eventually became a mate on one of the boats in the harbor. I left fishing for awhile and went out to the oilfield were I ended up getting my captain's license. After several years I decided to come back to what I love. I was hired on as a 1st mate with a great captain. Then opportunity presented itself with a great partner and I now have my on fishing vessel to make memories with some great people.
