We had an awesome time today with Captain Al! He’s very friendly and made sure we were accommodated! I will definitely book again! He also provide a Bluetooth where we played the music of our choice. If you’re looking for a great experience, then definitely book them
Capt. Al made our bachelorette trip the best! The boat was exactly as described and beautiful. We had so much fun. He was very communicative and even called the day before to give directions and estimated time to plan for to get there. I will be recommending him to everyone who travels to Destin!
We had an amazing time on our charter. Capt. Al was prompt with communication from booking the charter to confirming details regarding the boat amenities. Capt. Al and Capt Kristen were attentive throughout the day and really enhanced our trip.
Captain Al is a very experienced Captain. He has a wealth of knowledge about the local area. He and his crew will make your day on the water an experience you will never forget! Highly recommend!
Super fun experience! Captain Al and his wife Kristen were perfect and so friendly and helpful! We had a great time and we would definitely book again!
I am passionate about yacht charter. Having been on the water for over 40 years, as a captain, boat owner, and fisherman - it gives me great pleasure to see mother nature through the fresh eyes of my clients. Whether it be a spectacular sunset, a visit by a pod of dolphins, or just enjoying the crisp cool breeze - being on the water is special. And, experiencing it all aboard a finely tuned yacht with a professional crew that makes it easy is the cherry on top. Thank you for letting us do what we love to do! Please join us!
You’ll get directions to the departure location when you make a booking.
