King of Kings Charters

King of Kings Charters specializes in family-friendly fishing trips out of Destin. After just one trip with Captain Jayson, you will know why Destin is called the “world’s luckiest fishing village”.

King of Kings Charters especially enjoys sharing their wealth of local knowledge with their younger anglers. With a family of his own, Captain Jayson shares the same mentality when it comes down to a family-friendly time. Take your kids with you introduce them to fishing. There is nothing like seeing a child’s smile when they reel in their first fish!

Hang on and enjoy the ride aboard the 35’ JC powered by a 450 HP Cummins engine. There is plenty of space for up to six guests to fish in comfort and relax in between bites. The vessel is also outfitted with all the navigational equipment you’ll need for a successful day on the water, including a GPS and a fishfinder. There’s is also a toilet on board for your convenience.

While patrolling the waters you should expect to catch King and Spanish Mackerel, Bonita, a variety of Snapper species, and various other bottom fish. For the real thrill-seeking customers, Shark trips that will bring put you against the ocean’s toughest fighters are also on offer.

King of Kings Charters will provide you with license, quality gear, tackle, and bait. When you return to the shore, the captain will clean and fillet your catch. All you need to bring on board is something to eat and drink.

    Eight-hour trips are recommended if you want to target Red Snapper (when in season). You need time to travel further away from Destin to have a better chance of catching this fish. This longer trip also allows more time for exploration and a chance to catch bigger King Mackerel, Blackfin Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Scamp, Mangrove Snapper, Vermilion Snapper, and Porgy.

Angler's Choice
The Angler's Choice Award is given to listings that consistently deliver a high-quality service and earn great reviews from customers.
Captain Jayson Self began his fishing career with vacations to Destin back in 1985. Catfishing and Pinfishing got him hooked for life. Jayson spent the next four summers in Destin with his family, where he fished weekly with Captain Tommy Browning, the local legend. By the late 1980s, Jayson was a tournament angler, having fished with no other than his own mother as a teammate. But it wasn’t until 2015 when Jayson was finally able to realize the family dream of having his own charter boat. He now makes a living fishing full time and is exceptional at what he does.
