Background
Executive Saltwater Charters has a team of friendly, knowledgeable, and professional captains and crew. The crew is not only great at fishing, but they are also sticklers for safety on the boat and in the water. You'll experience top-notch personal service from a reliable staff. Master Captain Barry is the founder of Executive Saltwater Charters. His lifetime of fishing and former career as a tournament Bass pro on the MLF Pro Circuit makes him one of the region’s most reliable and knowledgeable captains on the water. Barry is a competitor by nature and prior to his fishing career, he competed on the football field as a running back for Auburn University. Barry has a contagious good outlook and attitude towards life. He strives for excellence and is known for always finding the fish and as one of the most personable captains in the Destin area. Captain Ryan joined Executive Saltwater Charters in Spring 2022. He is a New York native, but has called the Florida Panhandle home since the young age of 8. Once he moved to Florida, Ryan spent all his free time with a rod in his hand and grew to have a deep passion for the big blue. He spent a year mastering his love under the realm of Master Captain Barry where his work ethic and character provided him the role of running our largest vessel. Ryan is relentless on the water with the main goal of creating lifetime memories and an enjoyable experience while on board with one of his charters. Ryan is a former collegiate baseball player and when not on the water, he can be found golfing on the beautiful Emerald Coast greens. Don't miss out on a trip with Captain Ryan. His insurmountable accuracy in casting is something worth experiencing!
