About Your Trip
This trip is the real deal! Don't expect a leisurely paddle out in the bay (which Dave also offers) instead expect to get pulled around by all kinds of different species as you fight down fish from the comfortable seat of a first-rate angling kayak.
Once you book your trip,
... Read More you and your guide will discuss the best fish feeding times and tidal information for the desired day you’d like to go out and figure out the best time and location for you to meet up and start your… Kayak Fishing Adventure. Dave and all his guides have the knowledge and skillset to put you on fish, whether you want to head out into the gulf, sneak into the backcountry, or hit the open bay in a kayak.
Dave will provide each customer with first-class angler kayaks that come with the most comfortable seats in the industry, paddle or pedal driven Kayaks, gear and tackle, and all necessary safety equipment. Custom rods and reels are provided for the trip along with artificial tackle, live bait, dry storage containers, sunscreen SPF30+, and bug spray. Although all his guides will have coolers with ice onboard each of the kayaks, customers will have to provide their own 6 pack size cooler for their own drinks and snacks.
Dave and all his guides will also take PROFESSIONAL PHOTOS of the fish you catch and email you all pictures upon your request. They will also bring along a GO-PRO camera to take any video of your preference upon request. You never know what footage might get snagged! Be prepared to expect the unexpected out on the water fishing around Destin in a Kayak, you never know what you're going too catch! They can also hire a professional photographer to film and photograph your whole trip for an additional cost. Ask us about that option if you are interested in having something to take home to your family.

1st timer and I had the absolute best time of my fshing career. HIGHLY RECOMMEND
We took a romantic sunset trip, saw Dolphins and had the boat to ourselves with the captain. Highly recommend. It was the best part of our trip
Trip was excellent and relaxing. Captain was excellent put us in spots to catch but bite was slow. I always say that’s why it’s called fishing. Had a great time look forward to next trip.
I had originally booked an afternoon trip with Captain Dave from 4:00-8:00 p.m. however, as we were about to launch the Florida weather of thunderstorms came rolling in. I was quite disappointed as I had really wanted to try kayak fishing. Captain Dave recommended that we could still
...Read More fish but instead do a night time trip. I am glad the afternoon trip had to rescheduled as the night time trip was great. What an experience. The weather was awesome (much cooler than the normal blistering June temperatures) and we hit the fish. We fished around the lights that home owners have by their docks and caught a few sea trout and probably a dozen red fish It was quite the experience to see the fish swimming around the lights and know the fight might be on at any moment. We ended up fishing from 8:00 pm. until just before midnight.
I certainly appreciated Captain Dave’s willingness to adjust to get me on the water. He definitely knows the area well and will help you to have a great experience. I would highly recommend taking a kayak trip with Captain Dave. I would also consider a nighttime trip as you won’t regret it.
