One of our top picks in Destin. Crystal Beach Charters operates The Alibi - a luxurious yacht made for offshore fishing and fun adventures in the waters of Destin, Florida. Crystal Beach Charters can organize anything from bottom fishing wrecks for Snapper and Grouper, to trolling for Wahoo and Blackfin Tuna.
You can also catch Amberjack, Cobia, Mahi Mahi, Marlin, Triggerfish, King Mackerel and other species that populate these waters.
The charter is led by Captain Rob Hacker who first came to Destin over 7 years ago on a fishing vacation and never left! He fell in love with the beautiful and fish-rich waters, both inshore and offshore. Rob has worked under many top captains in the area gaining invaluable knowledge before finally becoming a licensed captain himself.
Captain Rob will take you out on his classic 42 foot Bertram recently updated including a large cabin with air-conditioning and heating, a restroom, a full kitchen, a shower, a stereo, and the latest electronics and fishing gear. This boat is new to the Destin Fleet brought over from Orange Beach by two area locals that wanted to set a new standard in the local Destin fishing industry.
From novice to expert anglers he will be there every step of the way to guarantee you get hooked, and bring in the big dinner keepers every time.
You will walk home with your bagged fish professionally fillet at the dock. Just bring food and drinks for the day, sunglasses, a hat and positive vibes!

The 1st mate Justin, and Captain Steve were fantastic! My sons were treated great by them. Our disappointment was the trip was moved ( because double booked online) from 6 am trip to a 1:00 pm trip, therefore the fish were not bitting. However, We want to go again next year and will definitely book again with this Charter and Crew! It is not their fault we had high winds and fish weren’t plentiful…But they were kind to refund some of the fee. Highly recommend The Alibi!!!

The was great. I would do it again. I would recommend the 10 hour trips over 4 to 8 hours. Only reason gave the not children friendly was due to the type of fishing we were doing. These fish are to strong for kids to handle.

This was our first charter with our 8yr old son. Captain Steve and Justin made the trip memorable and fun for him, my husband and I. We all caught fish and had fun doing it. Captain’s expertise made a huge difference. Boat was wonderful, everyone was professional, kind and wonderful to spend the day with. We will be back.
