Welcome to Tightlines Destin Charters, LLC. My name is Captain Elaine Rogers and I am a Charter Boat Captain out of the Destin, FL area.  Come join me for a fun filled day on Crab Island, Snorkel for shells  and a boat ride to look for dolphin.  This is a private trip/private boat so you and your family will be the only ones on the trip.

Unlike any other charter in the area – Tightlines Destin Charters, LLC focuses on non-fishing adventures in the Destin area. We can travel to the wonderful Crab Island that is a sandbar of sorts for your family’s adventures. There’s also sightseeing tours and snorkeling options. Your group of six will have the boat and Captain all to yourself – so book today and let’s have an adventure!

Going out twice a day, your group can book the 4 hour AM or PM trip. Captain Elaine provides everything you’ll need for snorkeling. We travel to Crab Island in my 23ft Sport Fisherman that has plenty of storage room for your personal items (bring a ziplock bag to keep them extra dry). There is also a head available for any bathroom breaks. Children are more than welcome aboard but we do ask that infants stay home (Tightlines Destin Charters provides safety jackets and simply does not have appropriate size for infants – so for everyone’s safety, children need to be at least two years old).

Crab Island is a fantastic place for your family to enjoy the day! There’s an inflatable water playground, many families swimming and playing nearby, or you can snorkel the surrounding waters. There are also food-truck type restaurants that have set-up in the area for your convenience. It truly is a fun family spot with lots to do!

When packing for your trip, be sure to bring sunscreen, hat, sunglasses, and camera. You’re also welcome to bring small sporting equipment (such as football or volleyball) to play games once at Crab Island. If you have any questions about what to bring or expect for your visit to Crab Island, just ask Captain Elaine!

  • Great Fishing Trip

    Created KC Bedel

    Captain Gary is awesome. He is so informative about the area, water, eats, and even the planes. He was very polite, funny, and helpful. Even though it wasn't needed he provided hand sanitizer, and other amenities during these trying time. He helped with pictures, and videos when we were busy having fun. I would suggest him Captain Gary to anyone wanting to have the full experience of the area. Thank you so much, as my girlfriend has never seen the ocean, and she wants to make your town our Florida spot again next time.

    We had the BEST time on the water today w/ Captain Gary and deckhand Andrew. A top notch experience! Gary was awesome and we enjoyed all the tidbits of info he shared about the area and fishing in general. It was an exciting day catching King Mackerel, Amberjack, Red Snapper & Trigger fish! These guys made the whole experience unforgettable 😃🎣 Highly recommend - you will not be disappointed!

  • Delicious Catches!

    Created Aubree Dawson-Forrer

    We had a great trip with Capt. Gary on Monday 6/25. Caught our limit of nice red snapper within a couple of hours. Had to throw back several nice red snapper and trigger. Caught a TON of big mingos and porgies along with a couple of sharks. We will definitely enjoy eating all the nice fillets.

  • Great Complete Trip

    Created Kenny Sinclair

    My 11 year old grandson and I took a half day charter with Captain Gary and Andrew on September 23rd. We were very happy with our trip and thought they were more than helpful. Captain Gary’s biggest concern with us was our safety - he took his time explaining everything on his boat and the safety procedures. My grandson has cerebral palsy and I really appreciate the extra time Andrew spent with him, making sure his poles were baited and where the fish were, what we were fishing for, etc. His day was complete and that gave me a lot of joy, knowing he had a great experience. Captain Gary was very knowledgeable about the area and the types of fish we would be catching. Overall, they are a very friendly group and we enjoyed our day with them, more than I can express through words. I highly recommend Hot Reels Fishing Charter and we will definitely be repeat customers.
