210 Harbor Boulevard
Destin FL, United States

Based in the renowned sport fishing 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 will be fishing aboard a 35 ft Express Sport Fishing Boat that has recently been restored to keep it in the best possible condition. This is one of the only sport fishing charter boats where you can hang out with the captain while you fish, with a large deck space featuring the boat’s control center meaning you will always be able to benefit from the personality and knowledge of the captain.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.

You will 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 will reach some of the best fishing spots the Gulf of Mexico has to offer and, depending on the conditions and season, start to fish for species such as 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.
