Miss Aegina Charter Boat

Harbor Boulevard
Destin FL, United States

Miss Aegina Charter Boat has been offering great fishing experience to anglers of all skill levels for over 47 years. With almost five decades of outstanding service, Miss Aegina is your number one choice for an adventure in Destin, the “World’s Luckiest Fishing Village.”

The Miss Aegina was built in Ocean City, Florida in 1969. She was the last true work of art by Gene Thompson, a very sought-after boat builder. The Miss Aegina is among 20 of these boats designed specifically for the water of the Gulf of Mexico. She comes powered by twin 400 HP Detroit Diesel 6V53’s engines. They are called “Screaming Jimmies” because their sound can raise fish!

The Miss Aegina has a warm and inviting atmosphere aboard. She has all the comfort of home and plenty of space for up to 15 anglers. Her v-berth has four bunk beds for those who need to take a break. Take a nap in between bites and let the ocean rock you to sleep on the way to the fishing grounds!

Aboard the Miss Aegina, the captain and his crew catch fish when others don’t. Troll and bottom fish for King Mackerel, Bonito, Blackfin Tuna, Wahoo, Barracuda, and Sailfish, as well as Little Tunny, Red Snapper, Grouper, Cubera Snapper, Cobia, Amberjack, and Triggerfish.

All trips come inclusive with quality rods, reels, tackle, lures, and bait. You will also be provided with fishing licenses for you and your party. When you return to shore, your catch will be cleaned, ready to go straight into the frying pan.

Children 9 and under are free of charge.

Miss Aegina Charter Boat is owned by Randy Langston. The guests are his number one priority on every trip. His crew works hard to provide them with a safe day on the water. If you like sharing quality time with family and friends and making great memories, you have found the right company. Tandy loves the excitement of deep sea fishing - you just never know what you’re going to get. One of Randy’s favorite species is Grouper - very challenging to pull off the bottom. As Randy says, they win more times that he does, which makes him want to see the one that got away!

45 minutes after departure
The generator stopped working.
The boat was leaking a lot of oil which made it harder to catch fish.
We bought bait, and while headed out to catch fish, the live well no longer had fresh water so the bait died before catcher ng fish.
I feel we were cut short due to mechanical problems.
We were supposed to have deck hands and instead we got the diesel mechanic and a women whom drank all day, smelled of alcohol and told us she was technically not part of the crew. At one point, I, a paying customer walked out and politely asked her if they were making her fish. Thinking she would give the paying customer the pole. But no, she just kept fishing.
I had 13 people with me.
Only six could fish at a time. I had five people sick so that left 8 people to fish and take turns. Not pay for my so called crew to fish.
While coming back in, the engine over headed and hit working. Yes I know there is another one. But the other one was making a lot of Bose it shouldn’t make. The deckhand/ machanic went down below and went to sleep and when he awoke
The passengers told him we were down an engine.
After looking at it and saying it had run low on oil
He said it was low when the day started.
I just don’t think it was very professional at all.
This was not my first time on this boat, but my Fourth
No other time did I have a bad experience but this time was horrible. We weren’t offered a discount for any inconvenience and I will definitely not charter this boat again nor ré commended them to anyone

Tracy, we rarely have any mechanical issues. We had rough conditions and lost prime on the generator and pump. Bait fishing wasn’t going well and I asked Susan to help catch bait. I apologize for the issues that occurred that day. I offered to buy the bait but Mark insisted on buying them. I hope you’ll give us another chance to take y’all fishing. All issues gave been resolved. We will take you at a reduced rate and I promise you’ll have a good experience. My apology.

The whole of crew of the Miss Aegina was fantastic!  Captain Sean, Deckmaster Jake, and Deckhand Dayton were awesome to be with for our trip.  They made sure that everyone understood safety and proper fishing techniques. 

Our first run at the trip on Wednesday got cut short by a nasty Thunderstorm but the guys took great care of everyone and they offered us a raincheck for the next day.  We really appreciated their willingness to work with us and reschedule even though we know they can’t control the weather. 

Take 2!  Thursday we got off to a beautiful sunrise and the baitfish were hot!  They put us on the bigger fish pretty quick and it wasn’t long before everyone was reeling in feisty King Mackerel.  We kept 8 (including a pretty big one maybe 15 lbs that made my 8yo son work super hard for it), threw back 4 smaller ones, and caught a couple of odd looking Remora / suckerfish. 

We had 3 adults and 4 kids, age ranges from 6 to 11.  I can not say enough about how awesome the crew was with the kids.  Very friendly and patient.  The boat is very comfortable, stable, and capable for the day trip.  It was well equipped with excellent fishing gear.  It has a very wide cockpit with plenty of room to move around when the action gets hot.

We will definitely book again!  Now that we know our kids have great “sea legs” we’ll go for a longer bottom fishing excursion with the Miss Aegina.
