Have Fun Charters Co. Trips

On this epic trip with Captain Robert, you'll run out on the Gulf and explore the artificial and natural reefs off Destin's beautiful white sand beaches. Captain Robert is a great choice for a family-friendly and action-packed day on the nearshore waters of the Gulf of Mexico. No Destin adventure is complete without a dose of light and heavy tackle workouts reeling in Mackerel, Bonito, Cobia, Vermilion Snapper, and much more. You'll step aboard Captain Robert's 24’ Proline center console, a fully rigged and well-prepared fishing machine. With a 300-HP Suzuki outboard, you'll be out over Captain Robert's secret spots with a line in the water in no time at all. The boat also features a live well to keep your bait fresh. On your way out to the Gulf, Captain Robert will stop to meet up with the bait man to stock up for the day. If the bait man has already run out of bait, he will quickly take you to catch your own. Captain Robert is very focused on customers’ satisfaction and showing you a great time out on the water, but like any good captain his most important priority is safety. If one of your fishing buddies doesn’t feel well, you will return to the shore and the captain will only charge for half the trip’s price. Because after all, you are there to have fun! All trips come with a license, quality gear, tackle, and bait. Captain Robert will clean your catch for you at the end of the day as well, and send you home with a bag full of fillets ready to jump straight to the frying pan. Just bring your favorite drinks and food and welcome aboard! Read More
