Destin is known as the “world’s luckiest fishing village” for good reason; you can have amazing inshore fishing and then just pop out to do some deep-sea fishing practically on your doorstep. Destin Deep Sea Adventures takes full advantage of that and their vast local experience to put you on the hottest bite around!
Climb aboard the “Mary Lou” a grand 45 foot Hatteras, an offshore sportfishing boat. She was originally built in 1968, but don’t let that fool you, she was fully restored in 2018. That means a brand new boat, with decades of fishing experience under her hull, a great deal for any angler. She’s powered by twin Detroit engines, with a total of 700 HP of thrust – great for trolling the open waters for pelagics. A flybridge is available on board for sight fishing, as well as outriggers to help with trolling.
Comforts haven’t been skipped on, with a comfortable bed available to take a break from reeling in keepers. A fully equipped kitchen is also on board, to help you prepare that tasty catch.
Your guide and assistant will be captain Richard Derek, a massively experienced local captain. He’s been fishing for over four decades and all that experience is placed at your disposal. You will go after a variety of species, from the shallow Amberjack and Cobia, across Snappers and Groupers all the way to the pelagic predators – Blackfin Tuna, Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, Kingfish, and others.
Live bait is caught during the trip with the customer. The crew work very hard on making sure every trip with Destin Deep Sea Adventures is a fun and memorable one, gratuity is appreciated as they work for tips. There is no minimum age for children on board this charter and Captain Richard welcomes young anglers to get hooked on offshore fishing!
