Charter Boat Seahorse

314 Harbor Blvd
Destin FL, United States

Charter Boat Seahorse offers one of the best ranges of trips in town. Captain Dean Cox has been fishing these waters his entire life and has put together a list of charters to give anyone from family groups to seasoned pros that perfect day on the water.

Enjoy four hours of fishing fun with the family and the kids. Head out for an eight-hour meat haul with your fishing buddies. Up for a real challenge? Journey 50+ miles to fish through the day and into the night for the Gulf’s biggest fish. Whatever you’re after, Capt. Dean has you covered.

The “Seahorse” is a 48’ custom G&S Sport Fisherman with enough room for up to 16 guests. She has everything you need for world-class angling, from modern electronics to outriggers, downriggers, a livewell, and quality equipment from Penn and Shimano.

Up to eight anglers can fish at once, but there’s plenty to keep the rest of you happy. The boat has an air-conditioned interior with a full head and a stocked galley complete with a microwave oven and a micro-fridge.

Your group can lounge in the boat’s saloon and enjoy the stereo and flat-screen TV or head outside to explore her massive deck space and tall flybridge. While they’re doing that, you will be busy battling anything from King Mackerel and Cobia to Blue Marlin and Yellowfin Tuna, by way of all the Gulf’s tastiest bottom fish.

Capt. Dean likes to stock up on fresh live bait by stopping near the shore each morning. He finds that fishing with live bait adds to the overall fishing experience, but also gives you an opportunity to find your ‘sea-legs’. If he has to buy live bait, Capt. Dean is happy to pay 50% of the price of it.

Whether you’re a seasoned or novice angler, a large company group or a small party, the professional crew of Seahorse will give their best to make sure that your trip is truly a memorable one.
