‘No Alibi’ is a 42’ Uniflite that can accommodate up to 6 passengers, equipped with sleeping quarters for 6, a restroom, a grill, and griddle available for cooking lunch or dinner, a full-sized refrigerator, stereo system, as well as satellite TV.

Captain Chris Schofield has over 15 years of experience in the charter industry, while the mate Brian Friend is also a seasoned captain with over 9 years of experience. They will work their hardest to put you on the most prestigious local species, such as Wahoo, Tuna, Sailfish, Red Snapper, Barracuda, Mahi, and anything else biting year-round in the bountiful Destin waters up to 50 miles offshore.

No Alibi takes charters in the Gulf of Mexico, from 4-hour excursions trips, to 72 hour overnight fishing adventures. The crew also runs Shark trips in the evening hours and Cobia trips during their migration in the spring. Destin allows for tournament fishing throughout the year as well.

When it comes to fishing equipment, the crew employs multiple sets of rod and reel combos aboard the boat at any moment. All fishing gear is in good shape and ready for your trip. The reels are mainly high-quality Penn and Shimano tackle. Light combinations are used for inshore trolling or bottom fishing and, of course, heavier gear for when fishing offshore. There are various custom-built rods aboard the ship as well.

Lures and live bait (prepared in advance) are also provided, and you won’t have to worry about catch cleaning and licenses neither. Kids of all ages are more than welcome, so make sure you bring your little ones on an adventure of a lifetime!
