Captain Steven offers a wide variety of trips from 3-10 hours both in the Choctawhatchee Bay and in the Gulf of Mexico. When you book a trip with Captain Steve, it is guaranteed you will have a day full of fun and enjoyable times. He is a licensed and insured USCG Captain, trained in first aid and CPR through the USCG, so he promises to keep you safe throughout the trip.

Reel Faithful Fishing Charters is running from a 23’ Pathfinder 2300HPS, built in 2011 that is equipped with the powerful Yamaha 200 four stroke, Atlas jack plate, Power-Pole, Minn Kota iPilot and updated Garmin electronics. The boat also has a full tower with second drive station and t-top for comfort and shade. The tower allows Capt Steve to spot the fish early, allowing him to give his customers a great shot at catching Cobia on top or Redfish cruising the flats. Also, other features include two large live wells and a comfortable seat forward of the console which is actually a seat over a cooler. The 23HPS is best in its class that offers a smooth and fast ride, allowing him to get his customers to the fishing spots quick!

All you need to bring for your day of fun is food, your preferred drinks, and plenty of sunscreen. Before the trip, discuss the cooler situation with the Captain. It is asked that all drinks are stored in the cooler offered on the boat to maximize room on the boat. Please be sure to bring sunglasses to keep fatigue at a minimum. The Captain supplies plenty of ice for drinks and fish, Ginger Ale (aids seasickness) and always keep a case of water on hand. Also be aware, it is recommended that if you think you will get seasick, take precaution and research anti-seasickness medicines.

At the completion of the trip, Capt Steve will clean the fish that were kept and bag them for the customer to take home for dinner.

Customary gratuity for crew is 15-20%

About the Captain

Steven Swendsen
Destin, Florida, United States
Member since February 2017
Coming from a long background of fisherman, I am the fourth generation in my family to commercial fish.. I grew up driving my Dads shrimp boat from loading dock to mooring slip. i began fishing with my great-grandfather, Pop as soon as I was able to hold a fishing rod and walk to the honey hole. Over the years, my love for fishing has taken over my life and is what I truly love to do.
