Come fishing with Destin’s Ultimate Guide Service and find out why they got their name! Fish with locally raised anglers who will always go out of their way to make sure that your fishing trip will give you memories to last a lifetime. Not only do the captains work hard and have extensive knowledge of the local fishery, they guarantee that by the time you finish your trip with them you will be a better fisherman.

The smaller of Destin’s Ultimate Guide Service’s two boats is a sturdy 20 ft Cape Horn center console that features a T-Top for shade and a safety rail that goes all around the front of the boat to keep the little ones out of harm’s way. The boat is powered by a 150 HP Yamaha engine that takes it to speeds of up to 40 knots, and it is equipped with a GPS, fishfinder, and VHF radio to help the captain navigate the waters of the Gulf of Mexico. There is also an ice box on board to keep any refreshments you bring with you cool all day long.

Destin’s Ultimate Guide Service specializes in family-friendly inshore and nearshore fishing charters. On a trip with them, you could stay close to land and fish with light tackle for big Redfish, Speckled Trout, Spanish Mackerel, and Tarpon, or you could head further offshore to battle with larger pelagic species like Mahi Mahi, Sailfish, and Cobia. Otherwise, fish the reefs, jigging for Amberjack and/or bottom fishing for Snappers and Groupers. The choice is yours, and the captain will be with you every step of the way with expert advice to make your day is the best it possibly could be.

All the rods and reels you will need for your excursion are included in the trip price, and your whole group’s fishing licenses will also be covered by the charter service.

My friend Mike and I had a great overall experience. Captain Adam was great. He caught our British and put us on some mangrove snapper and we had our limit in 30 minutes. Reds, flounder, trout weren’t cooperating today. We took our catch to a local seafood restaraunt right at the harbor walk and had it for lunch. It was delicious.

We met boat at time specified. Capt Adam already had bait and equipment ready to go. Capt Adam was very professional and made sure we had bait in the water at all times. Caught fish and took a few home for dinner. Had a great time and recommend. This also all took place during the duration of the eclipse. Thanks again Adam.
