Our charter boat fishing trips come in several types, based mostly on the time you have to spend and the fish you want to catch. Our shorter trips are perfect for fishing amateurs who are just getting their feet wet in the salt water, while our overnight trip is great for experienced enthusiasts who want to spend as much time on the water as possible.
We take our passengers out beyond the waves, where the reef fish are biting and the giants lurk. From red snappers to amberjacks, groupers to triggerfish, all the fish you could ask for are out there. We just have to go catch them! We use live bait to catch them, guaranteeing success.
If you want to go trolling for king mackerel, then a short trip for some inshore fishing is just what you are looking for. We know where the fish are biting and when, and will make sure you catch a satisfying fish. And if there’s rough weather, not to worry: our charter boat has a comfortable interior with air conditioning, heating and more.
At Charter Boat Phoenix, we take groups big and small, and are coast-guard approved for up to 20 passengers. If you don’t have enough passengers to fill a charter, then give us a call, and we can help to accommodate you with another small group. Meet new people, passengers and crew, on a fun charter fishing trip!
We offer the complete charter boat services, with professional, long-time fishing guides with over 30 years of experience. We make everything easy for you, guiding you and your kids through the fishing process so that you can snag what you’re looking for. We take you where the fish are, and then will clean and cut when we’re all done. We even make sure you get the perfect fishing photo!
We had a great fishing trip! Thanks for making our trip so much fun!
We absolutely had a great time.. caught a lot of fish and captain Scott and Justin were outstanding.. we will definitely be back.. thanks for the great memories with family and friends..
We had a fantastic fishing trip with Captain Scott and his crew . He knew right where to take us to catch the big fish . AND we did !! Wonderful time and would recommend this company to everyone . Thanks for such a great day !
Great trip. Captain Scott knows where to go and Justin was on it helping our family have awesome experience.
Such a friendly group of people.. led us right to the fish and we ended up with plenty of fish to eat! Had a great experience!
Went out with Scott and Justin on 7/11/20 was a blast. On good fish immediately. Caught our limit and had to throw several back. Hooked up with an 8 ft bull shark, that was crazy battle. Will definitely go again anytime we are in Destin. Took home a load of fish and great memories.
A lot of fun — great boat, great crew, big rewards. These guys do things the right way and it pays off!
Great time fishing today. Reached limit in little over an hour. Have used the Phoenix several times over the years and never disappoint. Thanks for a great day of fishing!
My family has fished with Capt Scott several years and we are never disappointed. We fished with Capt Gary and first mate Justin on Saturday and it was a success again! We look forward to our next trip with the Phoenix!!!!
We have been chartering the Phoenix for four years now and Captain Scott has never let us down. We have never left a fishing trip disappointed or unhappy. His deckhand, Justin, is the best in the business. He is always prepared for whatever tangle or mishap (or shark) that we encounter. Couldn’t recommend Captain Scott or Justin enough.
Both Captain Ben and First Mate Justin were awesome! My family had never been deep sea fishing before and they made us feel comfortable and we caught lots of fish! I definitely recommend!
The captain and crew were awesome. They put us on some great fish. I will use them again for sure.
What a great experience! We could not recommend Charter Boat Phoenix any higher than superb. We had a blast. Great boat, great folks, great times! They put Us on the fish.
Just WOW!! Not only is Destin great, but the Pheniox made the trip!! 4th trip in when we found Capt Scott and Justin for a day one the water! Justin is WITHOUT a doubt the best, relaxed and knowledgeable Deck Host we have ever had! And I think he admitted Capt Scott taught him all of it. LOL Great Boat, clean, and plenty of room for all. Capt Scott put us on the bait fish quick, and we were off to hit the open water. When he stopped the boat, the Amber Jack were begging for lines in the water. I think we were at limit in minutes! Then off to Bottom fish. Serious, best boat I have ever been on, and worth every penny. Side note, Capt Scott will have to bring ya back in, no matter how bad ya wanna stay out! Great job guys, we will be back, and already recommending the Pheniox!!
We had an awesome time! The boat was one of the nicest and cleanest we’ve ever fished out of. The crew is very professional and very friendly. We decided to try some trolling and they put us on the fish! It was a blast and we made family memories we’ll cherish forever. Afterwards they took care of all the fish and bagged them up! We highly recommend Scott for all your off shore fishing adventures!
WOW!!!!! Best fishing trip ever. We were impressed with the professional and friendly crew. Can't wait to go again in September.
Excellent experience for the whole family. The Phoenix with Captain Scott and first mate Justin are a 1st class boat and crew in a crowded Destin charter fishing fleet. This was our 6th trip with them in the last 4 years and we will be back with them for years to come with out a doubt. If you want to fish with these guys make sure to book your trip early because they are in high demand and stay fully booked. I can not recommend them enough.
6 members of my family took a 6 hour fishing trip aboard the Phoenix and had a wonderful day , great Captain and first Mate , could not have been more helpful. Caught many fish. When we do it again it will definitely be on the Phoenix. Book early so you don’t miss this boat.
Had a fantastic and successful fishing experience! Justin and Capt Scott put us on some great fishing spots. Ready to book my next one!
What a great fishing experience! Took the 12 hour trip the week of July 4th and had the opportunity to catch two 45 -50 Amber jacks. Capt. Scott and Justin where awesome and a wealth of knowledge on where and how to catch some serious fish. Will definitely fish with them next time in Destin.
Capt. Scott and Justin were top notch!! We went out Monday morning and had one of the best times that I can remember. Had a blast, even the bait fishing was awesome can't wait to do the 10 hour next time.
Great trip with our group of six men. Captain Scott and 1st Mate Justin did an excellent job putting us on fish. We asked to catch enough fish to eat all week with our families and the Phoenix did the job. We would have had many more fish if the dolphins would have left us alone and not stolen our catches off the line. Many thanks to the crew and staff with the Phoenix.
Three generation trip. All good, no complaints or even suggestions for improvement. Captain Scott pleasant, professional and very competent. First mate Justin very friendly and helpful, including to 12 year old grandson. Nice boat. And - oh yeah - we caught a limit of big red snapper and several nice size groupers. Deserves 5-star rating!!
On time, great instruction, patient with our kids, plenty of great fish. Next time I would do the 8 hr for more fishing time. Would definitely recommend Scott and will definitely go again!
The Captain and crew of the Phoenix were top notch fisherman who took us on a terrific 10 hour trip. We had a party of ten and 7 of us were first timers.The red snapper were plentiful(16) and we also caught 7 Amberjack. The deck hand and Captain made it a point that everyone caught and reeled in their own fish. A great day was had by everyone.
Great experience! We had a blast and caught tons of fish. The crew was extremely helpful, experienced, and family friendly. Best fishing charter experience we’ve had yet, highly recommend!!
This is our 4th year with Scott and Justin. For the last four years our youngest has joined us and this year he got to reel in a snapper. We catch fish every single time and they are so accommodating. We tell all of our friends about Phoenix and the fishing experience. We can’t wait to come back next year!!
Capt Scott and Justin did a great job of getting us on the bite. Had our boys with us and Justin did a great job with them. Boat was great for the kids and the crew was very professional and we had a great time. We will definitely go out again with them.
We had a GREAT time. We did a 6 hour with our 4 boys and they loved it. Caught fish quickly! 1st Mate Justin was extremely knowledgeable and willing to answer all our questions. I would give them a 10 star! HIGHLY RECOMMEND choosing the Charter Boat “Phoenix”! Thank you Capt Scott and Justin!
Best Charter experience for the whole family. Best Captain I have ever seen. Very knowledgeable about the area & where to get the best fishing experience. I would highly recommend this Charter for your fishing experience and all around fun.

I took my two son-in-law‘s and grandson’s on our first deep sea fishing trip ever. Captain Scott and his first mate Justin did a fantastic job on making this an experience we will never forget. The Charter Boat Phoenix is a first class fishing vessel and well maintained by the first mate Justin. We were well taken care by this young man. Thanks Captain Scott and Justin for making this such a memorable experience!!
Great fishing trip! Took the 6 hour trip this morning and we had a blast. Had our two boys with us, ages 7 and 4 and the captain and 1st mate did an awesome job! The boys loved it and the cabin was great for them to take a short nap. This was our second fishing trip with them and won’t be our last!!! Can’t wait to book another trip next year which our boys have asked to do the 10 hr trip!! :)
Great experience! Captain Scott put on fish all day long. If we hit a spot they weren’t biting or we were only catching small ones, he would move us to a another spot til we were catching good fish. Justin was great! Made sure we had everything we needed and new exactly what was coming up. Would definitely recommend these two. Will definitely book another trip as soon as possible!
Booked this 6 hour trip for 6. Had so much fun pulling in one fish after another. The quality of the boat, captain and first mate were FIVE stars! Justin was quick, knowledgeable, and overall friendly! He made the experience even better.
We had a larger group of 12. Captain Scott, 1st mate Justin and 2nd mate Julian are top notch. We caught plenty of fish. They rotated our group so that we all were able to catch fish, and did so in a very profession and patient manner which can be difficult with a larger group. Boat, equipment etc all very good. We are still talking about the trip and would recommend and use again. Thanks guys!
Awesome experience. We had 4 younger kids with us and Justin loved having them on board. I’m sure some other crews would be annoyed by the questions and inexperienced fishers but these guys were top notch. They put us directly on the bite and we killed it all morning. More fish then we know what to do with!
We Caught so many Fish. Great Experience. A Professional crew paying attention to details making all of us feel very welcomed. YOU can NOT go wrong booking with Capt. Scott and First Mate - Justin. If YOU looking for a very Professional Relaxed Fun time this is the BOAT for YOU.
Best catch of the day in the harbor. Quality service, quality fish , quality boat and equipment. Family friendly. We would recommend this charter boat to anyone.
Captain Scott and Justin put us on the fish all day. Cobia, snapper, grouper, king mackerel, etc.. They were great with our kids too. Highly recommend.
Hands down the best fishing experience we have ever had! We have used them two different times and will continue! They are friendly, fun, experienced, and make sure all your expectations are met! Worth every penny with these guys!! Can’t wait to see them next trip!
Captain and mate were very helpful and accommodating. They put us on fish at every stop. We had a great time and will definitely consider them for future trips.
Great day of fishing. Captain Scott and First mate Justin had us on fish with the first stop. Very knowledgeable of the Gulf and all that it provides.
Book with these guys!
Great fishing day with the crew of Phoenix. Very enjoyable with success at catching lots of fish
Thank you for helping my son and giving him a great fishing experience!!! Caught some nice fish and he really had a blast!
We caught fish all day to the point of being tired. Unbelievable to catch so many quality fish in cool weather. Clean boat. Great crew. I promise I will go back on the Phoenix over and over again. Caot. Scott, truly knows the Destin waters.
Second to none!!! We had such a great day with the hole crew...I think they had a great day with our crew as well, WAS A BLAST!
Captain Scott, Justin and Quintin were awesome! Boat was super clean and tidy! They never stopped working the entire time we were on the boat, great teachers for the first timers we had! We caught sooo many tasty fish! These guys are rock stars! Then when we were done they clean/filet them and bag them up real nice for you to take home! Highly recommend!
AMAZING boat! Very clean, wonderful captain and crew! Our family had a wonderful time and caught a ton of great fish! Highly recommend and will book this boat again!!!
Captain Scott and crew gave us one of the most awesome fishing experiences we have ever had! I would highly recommend taking your friends and family on this trip, we got to see dolphins and the weather was fantastic. We got to take home lots of fish to eat for dinner! Hope to return soon!
