Charter Boat Al-Lin

(6) Selling out fast!
210 Harbor Boulevard
Destin FL, United States

Charter Boat ‘Al-Lin’ is part of a family owned and operated company headed by Captain Harry Staples. This experienced captain has been fishing Destin’s waters for well over 40 years and is always happy to impart his wealth of knowledge onto his guests. While the Al-Lin is a family-oriented boat, people from all stages of their lives have come aboard for a memorable fishing trip. Newly weds celebrating their honeymoon, visitors from all over the United States, and people from other countries visiting the US on their vacation have all made up the charter company’s satisfied clientele.

The Al-Lin was custom built by the Staples family in the late 1980s and has been lovingly maintained ever since. At 44 ft long, she is a very spacious 6-pack vessel that features an enclosed flybridge and plenty of seating. The large deck provides ample fishing space, and the enclosed restroom is much appreciated by family groups. The boat is fully fitted out with electronics, including a GPS, Fishfinder, VHF radio and radar, and she also features both outriggers and downriggers for the best trolling experience.

Captain Harry will guide you through the best local techniques for trolling and bottom fishing, taking you to the best fishing grounds given the conditions on the day. Depending on the trip to decide to take, you could troll close to shore for King and Spanish Mackerel, bottom fish for Snappers and Groupers, or travel further out in search of game fish such as Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, Yellowfin Tuna, and Wahoo. Regardless of which option you go for, the experienced crew will make sure that your fishing trip is a fun experience, as it should be!

Once you return to shore the deck hand will clean your catch for you so you can take some tasty fillets home with you at the end of the day.

“God Bless and Tight Lines!!”

My father was a fisherman and built his own boats with each one getting larger . He built them starting in New Orleans, Louisiana and then Biloxi, Mississippi. I helped him build the last several boats. They were all charter boats. I started fishing with my father from an early age which was before I became a teenager. I love fishing and my children have their own charter boats now also. OCTOBER RODEO IS RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER! EXCITING FUN SO BOOK YOUR TRIP SOON!

Captain was great.  Fishing was ok just expected to catch more of targeted fish.  The 2nd mate didn’t seem to be as experienced and fell behind quite often so poles weren’t in the water as often as they needed to be.  Overall decent trip and experience for the money and time.  I would recommend to experienced deep sea fisherman for full day trip.
