Destin is known for its crazy close proximity to deep water, and where there deep water, there's giant fish! So for these afternoon trips, Capt. Zach likes rev his twin 150HP Yamaha's strapped to the back of the Malia Ann and quickly rip it out to the deep water. Once he's got you out there he likes to chill out, cruise around, and troll to attract the big fish Destin FL is known for. You never know what monsters will crawl up from the depths to whack your line at these depths, but don't be surprised if you hook into some Spanish or King Mackerel, Wahoo, Mahi, and/or much more! On the day of your trip, you will meet up with Capt. Zach at the East Pass Marina where the Malia Ann sleeps, but don't worry, this 26' beauty is always loaded with all the gear you could possibly need, ready and rearing to take you out on the water for an epic saltwater adventure!

Captain Zach and first mate Jason were amazing! They made sure to get my 7 year old son his first deep sea catch! They knew exactly where to go to find the big boy fish. It took less than a minute to snag a 40lber right off the bat. We were catching fish all day...it was awesome! Can't wait to visit them again! Thanks for an awesome day!

We had a great time on the boat with Zach and Josh. Had great communication, caught lots of fish, Josh went above and beyond for all of the ladies to be taken care of with our fishing bait and catch. I will be doing this again. Highly recommend! Having Aunt Trish on board was an extra bonus😊
