Based in the renowned sportfishing destination of Destin, Florida, and just minutes away from the East Pass entrance to the Gulf of Mexico, Stelluna Deep Sea Destin is looking forward to taking you out on the fishing trip of a lifetime.

You’ll be fishing aboard a 35’ Express sport fishing boat that has recently been restored to keep it in the best possible condition.

The boat is powered by twin 250 HP Cummins engines and is fitted with top of the range marine electronics by Raymarine and Furuno. There is an enclosed cabin with a bathroom on board, as well as a Bluetooth stereo and GoPro to make your trip one to remember.

Start your trip by passing paddle boarders, jet skiers, and other people enjoying their day on the shimmering blue waters of the Emerald Coast, possibly spotting dolphins and other sea creatures playing in the surf through the Destin Pass. Then, you’ll reach some of the best fishing spots the Gulf has to offer. Depending on the conditions and season, fish for Sailfish, Red Snapper, Mahi Mahi, Blackfin Tuna, Swordfish, Wahoo, Marlin, Cobia, King Mackerel, and many more.

Captain Judah will cater for all levels of angler who come aboard his boat, from complete beginners to advanced fishermen. This trustworthy and family-friendly charter boat will create the perfect trip for you and your group, whether you are after a fun trip for all the family, a thrilling Shark fishing tour, a serious big game fishing expedition, a fun business trip, or any other excursion.
