Inshore Expeditions Fishing Charters

Capt. Heath Lavin Santa Rosa Beach, FL Incorporated Licensed Insured

Inshore Expeditions Fishing Charters offers a variety of different fishing charters to accommodate all types of clients. Sailing the waters of Santa Rosa Beach, Destin, Seaside, Miramar Beach, and many other breath-taking locations, you can be sure you are going to get the best Emerald Coast fishing experience on the Florida Shores.

Born and raised in the marshes of South Louisiana, otherwise known as the Sportsman Paradise, Capt. Heath started bass fishing at a young age on golf course ponds. After transitioning from ponds to marshes he found his true passion for fishing by the age of 12. Growing up in a time without iPads and smart phones he spent more time in the outdoors, fishing and hunting, over anything else. Trying a variety of different work fields after college he eventually knew that a fishing guide was the career path he wanted to take. After losing his house in Hurricane Katrina, Capt. Heath moved around the country ultimately ending up on the Emerald Coast.  

Hop aboard Captain Heath’s 23’ center console and enjoy this spacious vessel that is powered by a 250 HP Yamaha SHO engine. She is perfect for cruising the local waters. She can carry up to 4 passengers and comes with a live bait tank, as well as necessary navigational equipment, including a fish finder, a VHF radio, and a GPS. 

You will be provided with rods, reels, tackle, live bait, lures, and a fishing license to make your fishing trip official. The crew will clean and fillet all of your catches and you are completely welcome to take them home. 

On our fishing trips around the bay, we love to target exciting species like King Mackerel, Redfish, Spotted Seatrout, Sheepshead, Pompano, Triple Tail, Ladyfish, and Spanish Mackerel, Jack Cravelle, and Black Drums. Our 4-hour and 6-hour trips will provide you with plenty of time to reel in one of these winners!

Inshore Expeditions Fishing Charters was established in 2014, specializing in year-round inshore fishing on the Emerald Coast. Based out of Santa Rosa Beach, FL, we fish all the local waters from Apalachicola to Destin. No matter what your skill level we welcome everyone from small children to seasoned anglers. Our goal is to provide a professional, fun, and exciting experience for all of our clients. Check us out today to book your next inshore expedition!
