King of Kings Charters

214 Harbor Boulevard
Destin FL, United States

Operating out of legendary Destin, FL, King of Kings Charters specialize in putting their clients on top of the hottest bite around. They welcome guests of all experience levels, from first-time fishers to the veterans of the sea. Captain Jayson Self knows all the ins and outs of the local waters and he will work hard to provide you with royal fishing experience.

His boat is a 31’ Albemarle walkaround, powered by twin 350 HP inboard Caterpillar engines. The vessel is perfect for fishing the Gulf of Mexico for reef fish, pelagics, and Shark. Its construction provides a stable and comfortable fishing platform in both the Gulf and the Bay.

There’s no age limit, so bring your kids and fishing buddies because the boat can accommodate up to 6 anglers fishing without tangling lines. It’s wheelchair accessible, has a full-head toilet, freshwater shower, and AC. Outriggers are also there to expand your reach, and ice-boxes and live bait tank will keep your bait and catch fresh.

Let the captain take you on a light tackle adventure on the Choctawhatchee Bay – perfect for beginners and families with smaller kids. Or go farther from the shore and explore the best spots of the incredible Gulf. Depending on your choice, you’ll be going after the likes of Red Snapper, Amberjack, Triggerfish, and Cobia, just to name some.

You’ll get to keep your catch (FWC limits apply) and the captain will clean it for free. He’ll provide you with top-of-the-line Penn gear and lures. When it comes to live bait, you can either catch it during the trip or get it before the trip for an additional fee. Whatever you choose, one thing is for sure – you’ll feel like a king fishing with Captain Jayson!
