Head out to explore the Nearshore and Offshore waters in the Gulf of Mexico with Captain Alex. 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. 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,...

About Your Trip

Head out to explore the Nearshore and Offshore waters in the Gulf of Mexico with Captain Alex. 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.

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 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 started helping out aboard the Silver King when he was 12 years old. He took a hiatus 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 aboard the Silver King. 10 years later, he has purchased the Silver King for himself and now runs his own operation!

Captain Alex was great. It's been a rainy week in FL, and he was able to squeeze us in. He knew all of the spots. Multiple people had mentioned not catching anything the day we went out, and our group caught our maximum limit. We've concluded in order to have
