Guided by Cliff Atwell
Captain Cliff has over 35 years of experience deep sea fishing in Destin, Florida’s local waters, and he will tailor your private fishing charter to suit your family or group. As a father of 3, he enjoys serving families and sharing the joy of fishing with others, whether amateur or experienced.
Get out there and experience the fun of family fishing in The World's Luckiest Fishing Village with Captain Cliff! He's been fishing here for over 35 years, and is an expert when it comes to putting you on the fish. On this trip, you'll target a variety of classic Florida reef species, including White, Black, and Vermilion Snapper, Almaco Jack, Red Snapper and Triggerfish (in season), and more! We also troll for a variety of schooling fish such as Mackerel and Bonito. These species are a blast to catch, and great to eat as well. Whether you're looking to fill your cooler, catch a personal best, or both, this trip has something for everyone. Captain Cliff is also great at teaching novices how to get hooked up for the first time, so there's no experience required on this adventure. We can troll or bottom-fish depending on your preference, and length of the trip. Feel free to stay out on deck watching the rods, or relax in the comfortable cabin until a fish is on. You'll be enjoying the breeze aboard Captain Cliff's 48' Pacemaker sportfisher. She's a beautiful vessel, and features an air-conditioned cabin, microwave, bed, and restrooms, so your trip will be as comfy as it is exciting! She's also powered by two Cummins engines to get you out there in a hurry. Captain Cliff will supply everything you need for a great trip, including rods, reels, and tackle. Live bait is also available for a small additional cost. All you need to remember is proper clothing, sun protection, some drinks and snacks, and a cooler for your keepers! Read More
Great Trip! Couldn’t ask for a better guide. He put us right on the fish.
Capt Cliff and Kyle helped this old lady mark off a wish on her bucket list! My family and I had a wonderful time. God provided the perfect weather and the guys provided a perfect experience.
Captain Cliff and Kyle were incredible! They are great with kids and did an awesome job keeping us on the fish. There was constant action. I highly recommend booking with Captain Cliff. We will definitely be back.
We had a wonderful time. Everything was great. This was a graduation gift to our son Ryan.
Thanks Capt Cliff and Easton for the best fishing trip! You guys were patient and helpful. Thanks for an amazing time.
Captain Cliff was very accomodating and knowledgeable for our fishing trip. Him and his mate, Kyle were very good coaches in helping us catch our limits. We plan on using him in the near future! We highly recommend!
It was my sons first time going fishing offshore. When we showed up at the marina so did the storms. Cpt. Cliff was patient with us and was willing to wait around for a break in the storms to keep it from being to rough on the lil one. Cliff and Devin did a great job putting us on fish and making it a great experience for his first trip out. I highly recommend Cpt. Cliff. Will definitely be back. Thank for great time for me and my son Cpt. …
Whole idea was to put the kiddos on some fish so they’d wanna come back. Captain Cliff delivered with each and every stop we made. He diverted around storms, found fish that other boats didn’t and kept us all busy reeling in fish the whole entire time. The man was hospitable, knowledgeable and a good time to be around. His deckhand Easton (3 Eastons on the boat that day) was amazing. He worked his butt of for us and made sure we had hooks in the water. Definitely booking with Captain Cliff again in the future. …
Captain Cliff put us on our quota of fish and his first mate made sure the kids all had fun. Highly recommend. The AC cabin was a plus to take a break from the heat. Awesome day!!!!
