Head out to explore the Nearshore and Offshore waters in the Gulf of Mexico with Captain Alex Hare. His boat is Federally Permitted which means you can venture out past State Waters and go as far out into the Gulf as you want....Read More
In Destin however, the deep water is so close to shore that often you can still see the condos while sitting above 50 to 100 ft of water! For nearshore trips like these, you can expect to do a good mix of trolling and bottom fishing.
Off Shore Gulf Fishing (Federal Waters), starting at 9 miles offshore, and reaching depths of 100 to 300 ft., you will be fishing for Amberjacks, Grouper, Snapper, Scamp, King Mackerel, Triggerfish, Bonito, Shark and possibly Wahoo, Mahi-Mahi, Sailfish, Marlin, and Tuna.
Captain Alex's boat the "Silver King" comes loaded with all the gear you could possibly need for a successful day out on the water including all the rods, reels, tackle, bait and fishing licenses. So all you have to do is bring your favorite snack and drinks, your sun protection, and your camera, and Captain Alex will take care of the rest!

Captain Alex Hare started helping out aboard the Silver King when he was 12 years old. He took a haitus from the Silver King to mate for another charter for 6 years before returning. He got his Captain's License at the age of 18 and started running trips abroad the Silver King. 10 years later, he has purchased the Silver King for himself and now runs his own operation! Needless to say, he knows how to get you hooked into the Fish around Destin!
Comfortable boat with plenty of room and shade for our party of 5 adults. Captain Alex is an expert in gulf fishing and is so encouraging. We caught our snapper limit and enjoyed a hook and cook fresh lunch dockside at Bratula's that Alex suggested. Best meal of the week! ...Read More Thanks Silver King for creating another great family memory. See you next year for sure.
The waters were pretty rough when we came out to fish on the Silver King, but Alex made sure we had a great time and caught some great fish! Felt like 3 or 4 types of fishing trips in 1. Very professional and knowledgeable. You can tell he is very ...Read More respectful of the ocean and it’s wildlife. We will definitely be back to fish with him!
Captain Alex did not disappoint! My husband and I have been on several deep sea fishing trips, and no other charters compare to this one! Don’t waste your time with anyone else… Captain Alex will put you on fish immediately, he definitely gets you want you want (or I know he ...Read More will try if it’s a possibility!), he keeps bait on your line constantly, has a very nice/clean boat and there was plenty of room for everyone (we have a family of four), and it was just a great experience overall. He was great with our kids and they had so much fun too! We won’t use anyone else when we come back to Destin! Thank you for a great time and great memories, Captain Alex!
