Two of the most popular activities in Destin, FL are deep sea fishing and dolphin cruises. Olin Marler’s Charter Fishing & Dolphin Cruises does a really nice job of providing both. Their customers like the fact that they provide high quality and friendly service at a reasonable price.
With its seven boats, Marler’s has the largest fishing fleet in Destin. They run daily dolphin cruises from the Hannah Marie and the Miss Florida. If you get hungry while on your 2-hour narrated cruise, a snack bar is available onboard. The cabin has heat and air conditioning, and of course they have restrooms. The cruise travels the Destin Harbor, then through the East Pass into the Gulf of Mexico, and to the Bay. Cruises are available for early morning, noon, or sunset.
Vacationers to Destin just love to see the dolphins up close and Marler’s seem to know exactly how to find them. They sometimes even swim right up to the boat. Of course, they don’t have a magical way to get the dolphins to cooperate, so it’s not guaranteed that you will see the dolphins. Even those guest who are not lucky enough to spot dolphins are usually still satisfied with the cruise as they enjoy the beautiful scenery and pleasant company. The captain always provides interesting information and stories during the travels.
Olin Marler’s also offers excellent deep sea fishing, specializing in bottom fishing and trolling. They supply the necessary bait, tackle, rods, ice and fishing license in the price of the trip. Experienced captains know the right places to go for the very best fishing and the knowledgeable staff will be there to assist in getting you rigged up and fishing.
This outfit aims to please everyone with their 4, 5, 6, 8, 10 & 12 hour fishing trips. And if you prefer an overnight adventure, they have that too. Their 50-foot boats are not fancy, but they are spacious and definitely sufficient. There are two bathrooms, so no waiting in line. Sleeping accommodations are available for the overnight fishing trips. For larger groups, they provide 65-foot walk around boats that accommodate up to 14 people for sleeping. These boats also have air conditioning, a microwave and two bathrooms.
To top off your trip, when you return to port, the crew will be happy to clean your fish, it’s included in your gratuity. There are even several conveniently located restaurants that will cook your catch for you to eat. You just cannot get fresher fish than that!
