    My family and I had the pleasure of fishing with Captain Chuck on our vacation and it was the absolute highlight of our trip. He was attentive, accommodating, kind, and most of all, hilarious. Seriously, this man needs his own stand-up … More show. We'll hopefully be back in the near future! Thank you Captain Chuck and IntraCoastal for an awesome experience.
  • Avatar Larry Reed ★★★★★ 7 months ago
    We had Captain Chuck take us out on a 5 hour trip. He did a great job of finding fish. From trolling to bottom fishing he did great! I would definitely go back to Intercoastal Experience for our next fishing trip.
  • Avatar Courtney Dudley ★★★★★ 9 months ago
    Captain Brett and captain Chuck showed us an incredible morning with our crew of 11. We had 6 kids from 7-12 years old and 5 adults. They made the trip so fun for all and allowed the parents to truly enjoy fishing as well by baiting and … More helping everyone with their lines. Super knowledge, experienced and personable. Would definitely use them next time!

    My husband and father went with our two kids (8) and (6) on a five hour fishing trip. They had a great time!! Capt. Chuck was wonderful. He answered all the kids questions, was very knowledgeable, and everyone had a great time.
  • Avatar Michael Ingram ★★★★★ 10 months ago
    Incredible time! We came down to the beach for our country’s birthday looking forward to a relaxing time. We waited until the day before to book a charter, but we still did thorough research to find the best place to go. That’s when we … More stumbled upon the crew at IntraCoastal Experience. We read scores of great reviews, and ultimately decided to cross our fingers that we could secure a charter with Captain Chuck. Lo and behold we got in touch with them right after a group had cancelled on them for the next morning, and they told us, “by the way you’ll be with Chuck.” From the moment we walked up, Chuck was professional, funny, personable, and incredibly knowledgeable in his craft— he has 10 years of experience but it easily felt like 30 or more. We shared many laughs, interesting stories, and had a great time cutting loose with out on the water. By the time we pulled back to the dock it was clear it had been a rough day for everyone else on boats who were not driven by Captain Chuck. Barely any fish were caught. No bites. Sad day. But not us. Not with Chuck! We would’ve been fine with the camaraderie alone, but much to our delight we caught plenty of fish to take back home with us. Ended up just one away from the red snapper limit, plus a few mangrove and a couple of mahi too. We were more than pleased with our trip and will look nowhere else for all our future fishing charters!

    We had an absolute blast fishing with Capt. Chuck! We did a 4hr near shore trip in the afternoon and caught several king mackerel and red snapper between the three of us.
    All of us, by no means avid anglers, felt right at home with Capt.
    … More Chuck and his deckhand (Jason). Never once did we feel unsafe or unattended to. If a spot didn’t produce, we were on to the next one. Capt. Chuck has a knack for putting you on the fish. My only regret is not booking a longer trip!
    The guys were also nice enough to take pictures for us when requested and also provided some recommendations for a great dinner in town.
    Capt. Chuck even let us try some dip that he made with some king mackerel he caught recently (which was delicious, I might add 🤤)!
    My recommendation is that you spend the money and book the 5 or 6hr trip. My first text to my wife after we caught our first round of fish was that the trip was worth every penny. Go fish with these guys…you won’t regret it!

    This was our first time going off shore fishing with the family and we had a wonderful experience. Captain was friendly and you could tell he had experience fishing in Destin. Captain found those honey holes and we caught some big fish…made … More our adventure even more rewarding. He was helpful with our children, baiting lines, and did all the hard work. It made our experience memorable and fun! We highly recommend IntraCoastal! We will be coming back for some more fishing.
  • Avatar Carolyn Walker ★★★★★ 11 months ago
    We had an awesome 4 hour charter with Capt. Chuck this week! It was a beautiful morning and he provided an excellent trip for this first timer! I would highly recommend both Capt. Chuck and Intracoastal Experience. We had plenty of red … More snapper and a couple mahi to take home with us! We also got to meet his heron friend Frankie, he knew where to come for lunch! This was definitely a highlight of our vacation.
  • Avatar John Treat ★★★★★ 11 months ago
    We went on a 4 hour trip with Capt Chuck. He was very knowledgeable and great with 3 teenagers on board. I even had the opportunity to fight a 8 ft bull shark for 20 minutes before it launched out of water and snapped the line. Definitely … More an awesome experience!
  • Avatar Michael Brittain ★★★★★ 11 months ago
    Awesome charter to work with. Capt Brett put us on some good fish and we were able bring home some different types of snapper. I will definitely be using this group in the future.
  • Avatar Rachel Leanne Smith ★★★★★ 11 months ago
    We had a great trip with Captain Brett. He took us all around to find the best spots to fish and was super helpful and answered all our questions with ease. Had a great playlist to listen to and was fun to just chat with and be around. … More (Which is super important when out on the water for half a day)
    Highly recommend booking with IntraCoastal Experience.
  • Avatar Wade Regier ★★★★★ 11 months ago
    Captain LW, Chuck and Brett all top notch. From booking to helping us find the best place for a hook and cook these guys run a first class experience. Their knowledge had us catching fish right away. It was a very comfortable and fun … More day on the water. You won’t be disappointed!
