Shark Fishing    4-6 Hours ($580 +)

*4 persons @$145 per person for 4 hours*

Shark fishing in Destin is easily one of the most highly sought after charters. The thrill of the bite, the cranking of the reel as the shark pulls down and finally, the victory of seeing it at the boat. For shark fishing, we are a catch and release boat only and no sharks will be coming aboard during your trip; however, this makes for the best family memories and the greatest victory stories for your friends.

We provide shark fishing rods, specifically rigged for larger sharks, your bait (chum, frozen and live bait), tackle, rods, reels, ice, and your fishing licenses.
Shark Fishing in Destin can be a family-fun event; however, we do suggest that only those fit and able to reel in a shark do so. We can put the kiddos on some bait fish to catch and they’ll have the time of their lives.
