Blue Heaven Custom Charters

Blue Heaven Custom Charters offers fishing excursions to anyone who loves spending their days on the water out of Destin, Florida. Get exactly what you want from your time on board – whether you are looking for luxury, hardcore thrills, or just want to test the waters.

Set foot on the “Amazing Blue,” a 39’ sportfishing yacht. It is a spacious and luxurious fishing machine with all the comfort of home, including an air-conditioned cabin. Its twin 380 HP Cummins engines can take you to the best spots quickly and safely, and the top-notch navigational electrons are fitted to ensure a quality fishing experience.

The vessel is prepared to take up to 6 anglers and is equipped with a restroom, a kitchen, and even a bed for you to take a nap in between bites. The Amazing blue is prepared for the current bite and can run multiple trips per day to the oil rigs and for big game fishing.

Blue Heaven Custom Charters won’t let the big get away. Troll close to the shore for Kingfish, Spanish Mackerel, and Amberjack. If you’re craving an offshore experience, fish the state waters or head further out to explore the Federal waters. Check the reefs and natural bottom areas for Red Snapper, Amberjack, Mahi Mahi, Grouper, and Wahoo. Test yourself in fishing for Shark, Marlin, and Tuna.

All trips come with the equipment required to put your catch together. You will be provided with rods, reels, tackle, bait, and state waters license. When you return to the shore, your catch will be cleaned and filleted for you. Pack something to eat and drink, and welcome aboard!

Enjoy a day of fishing on the waters of Florida with Blue Heaven Custom Charters and have a great time!
