Hiliner Charters

Come and enjoy the beautiful Gulf of Mexico aboard the “Full Draw.” Catering to anglers of all ages and ability levels, Hiliner Charters offers exciting and safe fishing trips for all the family. You will be fishing with Captain Brantley Galloway who has been fishing since he was old enough to hold a rod. As a native of the area, he’s a USCG-certified captain and has unbeatable local knowledge of the fishing grounds.

The Full Draw is a 40’ Infinity offshore sport fishing boat, powered by two 800 HP Cummins engines. The boat comes equipped with all navigational equipment possible, such as a GPS, Radar, VHF radio, as well as a fishfinder, that will make sure you get to the hottest fishing spots. You’ll be provided with all the fishing gear you need. When you arrive, you will find a cooler on board for your drinks and food, as well as fishing licenses and tackle.

You’ll be trolling and bottom fishing, focusing on the hard-fighting and great-tasting Cobia in the Spring. Bottom fishing can involve fishing for species such as Grouper, Snapper, Triggerfish, and Amberjack, while trolling trips could involve catching King and Spanish Mackerel, Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, and Tuna. The captain provides a cleaning and filleting service, meaning you’ll get to reward yourself with a hearty meal after a long day at sea.

Destin offers a gateway to the Gulf, and if you’re thinking about a trip, look no further. Every effort has been made to make sure that your trip is as comfortable and productive as possible. With air conditioning in the cabin, a kitchen, toilet, and even a TV, you won’t be disappointed with Hiliner Charters. Step aboard and start fishing right away!

Capt. Brantley has been fishing since he was old enough to hold a rod – since he was 5 years old, to be exact. He's a native of the Destin area and knows the area like the back of his hand, so is sure to get you right on the fish. Whatever the customer desires, he's happy to help to make it a successful, memorable trip.
