Windwalker II Charters

Windwalker II Charters is based in Destin, Florida - “The World’s Luckiest Fishing Village”. The company offers fun fishing experience in the Gulf of Mexico. An easy-going vessel, a relaxed atmosphere, an experienced and knowledgeable crew – what else is needed for a fun day out on the water?

Enjoy your fishing trip with Windwalker II Charters aboard a 48-ft custom-built boat, which comes powered by a 300 HP Detroit Diesel engine. This fishing machine can accommodate up to fifteen anglers. Its navigational electronics include a GPS, a VHF radio, and a fish finder. The boat’s flybridge will aid your search for the fish and an ice-box will keep the catch fresh and the drinks cool during the day. Inside, the vessel is air-conditioned and is equipped with a toilet, which is a much-needed thing when staying on the water. As well as that, there is a live bait tank fitted along with downriggers for a professional fishing experience.

The waters of Destin are abundant with a wide range of fish species, and Windwalker II Charters is familiar with the methods that work best to make an outstanding catch possible.

Enjoy a productive 4-6-hour trip to Destin’s shallow waters, or travel further out to deeper waters on a longer trip. Go trolling close to the shore for Spanish Mackerel, Mahi Mahi, King Mackerel, and Bonito. Or take a ride further out for an exciting fight with those blue water monsters – Wahoo, Tuna, White Marlin, Sailfish, and Blue Marlin.

A fishing trip with Windwalker II Charters comes inclusive with rods, reels, tackle, lures, and live bait, along with the licenses for you and your group. If you decide to keep the catch, it will be cleaned and filleted after the trip for a ride home, where you could take it for dinner later. Feel free to bring your own snacks and drinks!

Take advantage of the fun of fishing with Windwalker II Charters!

Verified badge
Captain Bernie Lefebvre is a native of Fort Walton Beach, Florida, brought to the area via his father's military assignment. The opportunity to grow up on the waters of the Emerald Coast allowed Bernie to gain both knowledge and experience. His passion for fishing began when he was a young boy, when he went fishing with his Dad and friends. In 1984, Bernie worked with a friend and his father for a Destin charter boat business. While in college, Bernie worked as a deckhand and dreamed about starting his own company, which he did after 15 years of working in the Information Technology field. Captain Bernie has taken part in various fishing tournaments, where he became a big fan of offshore trolling. For Bernie, the greatest thing about fishing is the excitement and fun it can provide to people of all ages!
