Have Fun Charters Co.

(17) Just booked!

Having Fun Charters is a great choice for a family-friendly and action-packed day on the nearshore waters of the Gulf of Mexico or Choctowhatchee Bay. No Destin adventure is complete without a dose of light or heavy tackle workout.

Step aboard the “Reel Crazy”, which is a 24’ Proline center console. She is a fully rigged and well-prepared for the current bite fishing machine. The “Reel Crazy” performs well both close to the shore and backcountry. She comes powered by a 200 HP Mercury engine and features a live well loaded with bait to make your hooks irresistible.

Whether it’s fishing in Choctowhatchee Bay for bull Redfish or nearshore for Mahi Mahi, Vermilion Snapper, Red Snapper, Grouper, Spanish and King Mackerel, Bonito, Triggerfish, and many more, you can rest assured the captain will cater to your most specific needs. He always follows the current bite so believe us when we say you will get a surprise!

Having Fun Charters cares not only about their customers’ satisfaction, but also about their safety. If one of your fishing buddies doesn’t feel well, you will return to the shore and the captain will only charge for half the trip’s price. Because after all you are there to have fun!

All trips come with license, quality gear, tackle, and bait. The captain will send your catch home ready to jump straight into the frying pan. Just bring your favorite drinks and food and welcome aboard!
