Guided by Alex Hare
Deep Sea Inshore Nearshore
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 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!
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 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! Read More

Amazing day! Captain Alex was great and worked hard to keep us catching fish! Definitely recommend Silver King charters! Hope to make it down summer fishing soon!
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 a great fishing experience you need the right captain, Alex is just that. We even were able to go shark fishing for about an hour and caught two sharks. Alex was easygoing, kept us safe, accommodated us, and made should we had a great experience. Next time we are back we definitely will be using Alex! …
We had a perfect day fishing with Captain Alex! The morning was beautiful, the fishing was excellent, and the fresh caught mingo for lunch was delicious! We are experienced offshore and inshore fishermen from the Texas Gulf Coast and the Laguna Madre, so we can state with authority that Captain Alex is a great guide and I would highly recommend him and the Silver King to anyone looking for a good time. Thanks Alex from me and my son, Blake! …
Amazing time! Caught so many different kinds of fish and two huge sharks! Capt Alex will be our go to for alllllll fishing.
great trip! knows how to put you on fish! best charter ever!
Capt. Alex is the best in the biz… takes you out, gets you on fish, baits your hook, tells you to set the hook when you’re not paying attention… captain Alex is awesome… we even caught a huge shark… did I say he’s the best in the biz…..
Amazing experience! Captain Alex is the best. Caught our red snapper limit early on and had fun catching other fish for the rest of the morning. Will definitely fish with Captain Alex again.
Greatest time ever. I met captain Alex’s mom and Grandmother. I’m coming back and bringing others with me to share experience.
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 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! …
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 respectful of the ocean and it’s wildlife. We will definitely be back to fish with him! …
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! Thanks Silver King for creating another great family memory. See you next year for sure. …
