    We have been going with Captain Chuck for four years, every spring break in Destin. He is professional, the boat is always clean, and he treats us so well. We always have the best time fishing and laughing for the morning! Our avid fisherman … More (son) has been fishing with Captain Chuck since he was 4 years old. It is our favorite part of our trip here every year! We have caught all kinds of fish but the best part is even on a less than perfect fishing day we are always catching more than the other boats we see and pass. We have already booked our stay for next year and we will be signing up with Chuck again, as always!

    We were a party of four adults with fishing experience. Captain Chuck was a delight. Friendly and knowledgeable. Between himself and his first mate, Jacob, we were always ready to drop a line. We caught so many fish some of us needed … More a rest (: It was the best trip ever. We look forward to another trip with Captain Chuck in the future.

    We had the best time on this fishing charter. Captain Chuck went above and beyond to ensure our comfort and enjoyment throughout the trip. From offering helpful fishing tips to getting our catch ready, his hospitality exceeded all expectations!! … More Our favorite fishing charter in Destin. Thank you intracoastal experience!!
  • Avatar Kimberly Katz ★★★★★ a month ago
    Our fishing adventure was great! We told Capt Chuck we were just in for the experience & wanted to catch an array of species. We did just that. We casted for Spanish Mackerel, caught our own bait (which was a blast), caught some larger … More species of fish, & attempted catching a shark; but no luck as they cut the line. He was easy to get along with and told us exactly what we needed to do to get a bite. I would recommend Capt Chuck 💯 for next family fishing adventure!

    The Absolute #1 Fishing Charters in Destin, Florida!
    I reached out to Intracoastal Experience for our multi family fishing vacation to Destin, Florida. I needed two fishing boats and Capt LW answered my many questions while accommodating
    … More our needs with timeliness and ease.
    On the day of our private group charter we boarded fishing boats with Captain Chuck and Captain Jeff who were extremely personable with all of us to include our younger anglers who no doubt were excited to go catch fish.
    Once at our fishing spots and throughout our deep sea fishing adventure Captain Chuck and Captain Jeff provided expert coaching and demonstrated the type of family and kid friendly patience you’d expect from seasoned professional fishing guides. We quickly started catching many different types of fish to include snapper, grouper and triggerfish. It was truly a fun-filled experience and we never had to wait very long for our captains to assist with taking our fish off the lines and baiting our hooks.
    In retrospect we’ve been on many fishing charters and were simply amazed by the advanced knowledge possessed by these captains of their fishing areas as well as the cleanliness of their boats. The quality of their fishing equipment was also top notch.
    At the conclusion of our fishing tour both captains cleaned and filleted our catch which was enough for a few family fish fry’s. It was pretty obvious these guys had earned all the 5 Star Reviews I’d read online about them. I truly came away feeling I’d finally found a fishing charter as well as a new group of friends me and my family could plan future trips with for many years to come.
    If you’re planning on coming to Destin, Florida and need an all inclusive fishing tour, then I’d look no further than the great people at Intracoastal Experience!
    Thanks again,
    Antonio Morrison and Family

    From my husband’s first contact with Captain LW until our final hook and cook recommendation with Captain Chuck- the customer service was top notch!
    We had a blast as a family of four with 2 teen boys this November. The seas were rough,
    … More but Captain Chuck made it a great time for us all! He joined in the family competition and cheered us on when we were action packed. Even got a chance to pay the tax man while out - Captain Chuck handled Mom the best!
    The catch to table at the Edge was awesome! Highly recommend going out on this charter if you’re in the area! They won’t disappoints even when the sea conditions try!

    We had a large group of people who wanted to go fishing and IntraCoastal delivered. From booking two boats that could accommodate the group, keeping us updated on fishing conditions, and then making the best out of a day on some choppy … More water – we had a blast. Captain L.W. was incredibly helpful from start to finish regarding recommendations and what to expect. Chuck and Brett, our day-of captains, made the day so much fun and helped us catch some really delicious fish. They also cleaned and filleted our catches, then recommended a great restaurant to prepare our fish for lunch (the best part!). Highly recommend this company and crew!
