Destin Charter Fishing Adventures

Capt. Tim Baxter Destin, FL Incorporated Licensed Insured

Our Captain and crew will get you on the fish fast! Hit the water with Destin Charter Fishing Adventures, a locally owned and operated charter boat specializing in both offshore and nearshore fishing trips on the Emerald Coast.

Your offshore adventure starts when you step aboard the Missin Pieces, a well maintained 30ft Contender that was originally built in 2004. She’s been outfitted with all the latest electronics and quality fishing gear to greatly increase your catch rate while you’re out on the water! Onboard you’ll also find outriggers, down riggers, and a livewell.

Captain Tim Baxter will be at the helm as he works with you to customize your day on the water. Let Captain Tim know which species you came to Destin to catch, and season dependent, he’ll make it happen! Captain Tim has over 20 years of professional experience fishing the Gulf of Mexico and has honed his skills using a wide variety of fishing techniques. These include kite fishing, trolling, and bottom fishing, to name a few.

Did you come to the Emerald Coast with Mahi Mahi, Sailfish, and Amberjack on your mind? The full day trip is calling your name! Simply put, the more time you spend on the water with Destin Charter Fishing Adventures, the more fish you’ll be packing in the cooler. Captain Tim offers 4, 6, 8, and 12 hour private fishing trips, perfect for anglers of any skill level. If this is going to be your first time with a rod in hand, the 4hr and 6hr trips are a great way to be introduced to the sport of offshore fishing. For the seasoned angler, let Captain Tim take you to where the true monsters are lurking on a full day offshore trip!

Destin has earned the nickname as the “World’s luckiest fishing village”, and you’re about to find out why! Throughout the year you’ll have the chance to hook up on Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, Amberjack, Red Snapper, Grouper, Tuna, Triggerfish, and more! The time of year and your preference will determine what you’re fishing for, but no matter when you’re planning your trip Captain Tim will put you on the fish!

Book with the best, Destin Charter Fishing Adventures is the premier charter service operating on the Emerald Coast! Captain Tim is excited to share his local knowledge with you, and is eager to put you on a fishing trip you won’t soon forget!
