DESTIN FISHING CHARTER REVIEWS

Great Trip!!!

Destin
★★★★★
GREAT trip. Cap’n put us on the snapper and we caught our limit of 12 in a half day trip! First Mate was for real, working his butt off keeping lines tight and baited. We caught our share of vermillion snapper and even a Atlantic Sharpnose. Which we have just grilled and inhaled. All in all a perfect trip, will do it again.

Love the Water!

We booked a 1/2 day trip with iOutdoor through the website, easy, quick and ended up being the right thing to do. The guys put us on the fish right away and had us reeling in fish consistently. Overall a great day experience, this was our first time. The boat and equipment were great, we will be booking again on our next trip.

Cash is accepted for the balance, you pay the captain after the trip is over. You must have a reservation in advance with a credit or debit card. Captains do also take credit cards for balance. By booking in advance, you are guaranteed a spot.

Is it necessary to print my receipt?2018-05-18T14:28:30+00:00

How will I recognize the charter boat?2018-05-21T13:40:22+00:00

Our charter boats are labeled with iOutdoor logos, you will also have the captain's cell phone on your itinerary if you can't find the boat. You will always generally want to meet down by the boat ramps unless otherwise told by captain.

How long does it take before we start fishing?2018-05-21T13:41:11+00:00

The drive takes different times for different locations and styles of charters. Most inshore and freshwater charters take a 5 to 15 minute boat ride before starting to fish. The offshore charters are ones that can vary based on weather and species of fish the captain is fishing for. It could be 15 minutes, but up to 45 minutes. Again refer to your captain on his call with you and he can provide a detailed plan.

Do we stop while we are out on the water?2018-05-21T13:43:01+00:00

It depends on the customer and type of charter. If passengers wish to take a break, we can stop at scenic areas to stop take pictures, use restrooms or get a bite to eat when available. The charter time is yours, you book for 6 hours and want to fish for three hours and sightsee for 3 hours, that's okay with us. We do ask that you communicate that with the captain, they are fishing captains and focused on catching you fish, so that's what they do unless you advise otherwise.

Do you offer Wi-Fi on the fishing charters?2018-05-21T13:45:32+00:00

Many of the boats have hotspots onboard for FREE Wi-Fi. Due to the nature of the technology and locations that the boats travel there are many locations that may have no service during your charter. Please ask your captain about service quality prior to going, we are not responsible for interruptions of service that are beyond our control..

What are some good items to bring on the charter?2018-05-21T13:44:42+00:00

Sunglasses, Hat, Jacket, Wear layers, there's plenty of storage. Cell phone or camera, on trips that permit harvest a cooler to take your catch home is important.

Will you take us back to our hotel after the charter?2018-05-29T09:07:13+00:00

No we do not offer this, we can help you contact a car service on the way in so that you are able to get back to your hotel.

Can I eat on the boat?2018-07-03T12:04:35+00:00

Yes, you may bring food and beverages with you. But do not throw trash in the water, it is against the law and you may get fined. Deposit trash in the wastebasket on the boat, the captain will assist you with this.

Can I take pictures?2018-05-21T13:48:24+00:00

Of course! Photography is encouraged. Our boats have large panoramic windows that are perfect for capturing your catch and sightseeing. We know your vacation photos are important to you because of the way you share them on your favorite platform, when doing so please include @ioutdoor or #ioutdoor and we will be sure to share your pictures with all of our guests as well.

Should I bring an umbrella, what about rain?2018-05-21T13:53:55+00:00
What time do we return from the fishing charter?2018-05-29T09:07:02+00:00

The boat returns to dock at approximately what length time you booked. Departing 4 hour trips at 7AM return approximately 11:00am, departing 6 hour trips at 7AM return approximately 1:00pm, departing 8 hour trips at 7AM return approximately 3:00pm. Please allow extra time if taking fish, as it takes up to 30 to 45 minutes for captain to clean and package your catch. If you are on a tight schedule be sure to inform the Captain and he will work with you to accommodate your schedule.

Will you pick me up from my hotel?2018-05-29T09:36:40+00:00

No, we do not offer courtesy pick-up and drop-off service from hotels as we are pulling the boats and most places we can not turn around. It's most convenient to use Uber or Lyft car service.

How do people dress?2018-05-29T09:40:11+00:00

In layers is best, but fishing is casual. A sundress for ladies with bikini underneath is not uncommon. Khaki shorts for guys is as dressed up as anyone ever gets, long pants work if you're not use to the sun. In the same vein, there are no “styles.” Get comfortable with whatever dress code is norm. But always try to wear light colors as they are cooler.

Where can I park my car at the meeting Location?2018-05-29T09:36:49+00:00

There is parking at most all locations, most are free other places it may be a few dollars, many places are city meter parking. Your captain can tell you the complete cost, if any.

Some do, all the inshore and freshwater charters DO NOT have air condition. Some of these boats do have T-tops or cover, others have no cover. Many of Offshore sportfishing deepsea charters do have air conditioning, although not all. So it's important to ask prior to your departure.

Can I bring luggage on the charter?2018-07-03T12:06:32+00:00

No, but in almost all cases the captain can help you store the luggage while you are out fishing. Please confirm with captain when you talk, how many you will have.

Will you pick us up at the cruise ship port?2018-05-29T09:06:31+00:00

No, we are unable to pick you up at the port. However, it is easy to take a taxi, uber or Lyft to our location and is generally never more than $10.00. Taxis are always available, but cost more than the share-a-ride companies.

If a hurricane or tropical storm threatens to spoil your fishing trip, we promise to secure full refunds for customers with prepaid charters.

Space is almost always limited, therefore, we have a limited amount of last minute charters.
