  • Fun filled & action packed for dad and the kids, while still relaxing for mom. It was a win-win.

    Created Christa P

    Captain Taylor helped me pull off the best Father’s Day ever! The whole family had an amazing day. All smiles, all day.

  • Great kids fishing charter

    Created Jason

    My son(8) and I are pretty new to fishing. We have just been fishing local ponds back home. My son really wanted to go fishing while in Florida and didn't need to the whole experience of going off-shore, fileting and keeping fish. We wanted a fun, laid back experience(catch and release). We found Tony's fishing charter that was perfect for our needs. My wife and daughter even came along, so it was a great family outing. We went inshore fishing and caught redfish, pigfish, crab and even hauled in a stingray!! We highly recommend Tony's 2-3 hour charter for kids, which was in the afternoon.

  • Awesome captain,boat and equipment

    Created Kevin Box

    I have fished on many inshore and offshore charters, captain Taylor ranks up there with the best. We had a 5 hour near shore trip with two adults and two kids age 10 and 12 everything worked perfectly. Had our limit of nice snapper and a few extras, captain and equipment was first class. Captain Taylor even stopped the boat on the way in to let all of us enjoy the show a pod of dolphins where putting on. Thank you captain for the memories!

  • Fishing charter

    Created Jen Pino

    We had the pleasure of taking a 5 hour charter with Taylor on May 29th, 2019. There were 4 adults, 2 women and 2 men, who comfortably fished off his boat. I loved the personalized experience he gave our family. Even with our minimal experience in fishing offshore, he made sure we had the right bait and guidance to land the fish. From the start to finish, he was an amazing guide. He kept our poles in the water. Took us to multiple different spots to fish. Was extremely friendly and you can tell he truly loves what he does. He is very familiar with the area and made sure we kept pulling fish in. My family will definitely be back for another charter in the near future! I would highly recommend Taylor to anyone looking for a good fishing experience while they are visiting the Pensacola/Navarre/Ft. Walton/Destin area!

  • Fun! Fun! Fun!

    Created Christina Willamor

  • Best Time Ever!!

    Created Courtney Thornton

    We had the best time with Capt. Taylor! He was very professional and knew exactly where the fish were. Highly recommend Emerald Coast Fishing Charter. We will definitely be booking with him again.
