About Destin, Florida

Destin, Florida is known as “The World’s Luckiest Fishing Village” and for good reason. Destin was discovered and settled by fisherman because of the unique geography of the fishery. In the early 1800's there were no rods or reels or power boats. Most of the time fisherman used seine nets from the shore. The fishing was still so good that the fisherman back then was able to make a living and feed their families  As times went on and the fishing techniques improved and technology advanced, fishing became the career of choice in the Destin Fl area. Many Captains, much like ours come from a long line of fisherman. Destin’s premier charter fishing fleet was started. 

With gorgeous temperatures, most months of the year the Deep Sea fishing is always enjoyable in Destin. After going on a Destin fishing charter with one of our captains on one of our boats you will quickly know why. Enjoy experiencing Destin, Florida the way the locals do while fishing with Captains that have been navigating these waters their entire lives. Destin is unique in that there are over 20 different species of deliciously edible fish swimming in our waterways available to catch on your families deep sea fishing trip. Destin FL, not only known for its world-class fishing but also known for having some of the most delicious restaurants on the gulf coast located directly on the Destin harbor. Conveniently located near our boats you will find our favorite stops and the local favorites for cooking your catch, Boathouse Oyster Bar, and Harbor Docks. These are a couple of Destin's best and unique places to grab a nice lunch or dinner after your Deep Sea fishing charter with Boggy Bayou Guide Service.

What Our Customers Have To Say

July 28th my wife, daughter, future son-n-law aka (worlds worst fisherman) lol, went out with Captain Jaysen. I had always wanted to go but didn't know if it would be worth the cost. Well, it took about a 15-minute boat ride to our first spot and then it was on! For the next 4 1/2 hrs we wore the rods and ourselves out. King mackerel, Benita (may be misspelled) tuna, red and white snapper, triggerfish it was ridiculous! Captain Jaysen kept us on the fish and made sure we knew what to do. All I can say is if you ever want to fish the Gulf and you are anywhere close to Destin, this is the guide service you want to use. Boggy Bayou knows what, where and how to make sure you get your monies worth! Thanks for taking our rookie family out and giving us some awesome memories. Except that the worst fisherman did beat me, I couldn't have asked for more!

Had a great time fishing on this charter in Destin Florida. Caught my first King Mackerel and had a blast! The captain - "Chubbs" - was very friendly and made this trip stress and hassle-free. Would highly recommend them to anyone and look forward to my next fishing trip with them!
