Semi-Private Group Fishing Charter Aboard The Olin Marler Fleet (15 Person Max)

We take no more than 15 passengers. Plenty of space on our 65 ft. walk-around boats.

Olin Marler's Charter Fishing Service has the largest fishing fleet on the Emerald Coast! We are pleased to have the opportunity to introduce our fleet and invite you aboard to fish the beautiful, unspoiled waters of the Gulf of Mexico. With knowledge based on a lifetime of experience, we assure you a deep-sea fishing adventure that will make for a dandy "fish tale".

Group Charter Fishing is great for people looking for a genuine deep sea fishing adventure, but prefer less passengers. By having fewer passengers, your fishing experience is enhanced due to more space, shorter waits for crew assistance, and better chances at catching more fish. You will typically fish with 8-15 passengers on a 65' walk around. Tackle, licenses and bait is all included as well as safety equipment.

Activity Highlights
→ Bait, tackle and fishing license included.
→ Experienced captain and crew.
→ Catch snapper, grouper, trigger fisher and more!
→ Great for families and young children
→ 65 ft. walk around boat with bathrooms and A/C cabin.

    Great fishing

    The captain and crew were great! Only having 15 people fishing also was a big bonus. Caught so much fish we have to give some away.

    Very disappointed with the crew and the whole experience.

    Very disappointed. I did not catch a single fish. We were out there for 5 hours. Most of the trip was spent going to and coming from the fishing destination. Very little time actually fishing. There were 14 people on the boat and only 1 mate. My wife and kids hardly got any assistance at all from the mate. Crew was not interested in us catching fish. We would drop our bait and 5 minutes later move to another location. Hardly got to get my line wet. We will never book a trip on this boat again. Other guests were complaining as well.

    Captain and crew review of Trade Winds

    This was my first time to deep sea fish and I couldn't have asked for a better experience!! Captain Larry Meyer and his crew were top notch, I highly recommend this Captain and crew and will go out again with them . Crew members Juan and Dylan were spot on with their help for this novice- great time!

    Awesome Captain and crew

    Our entire experience was great. Captain John genuinely wanted us to catch fish. Juan and Dillon were both Johnny-on-the-spot bringing bait and removing fish. Everyone was super nice and encouraging. We will be back for sure.

    Robert, We are so very sorry that you did not enjoy your fishing experience with us! We have spoken to the captain and crew to see what happened and it was brought to our attention that a large pod of dolphin followed your boat around all day and stole several of the customer's fish. While this sometimes happens and the captain DID move the boat several times to get away and have you fish in other areas, we have zero control over what bites your hook (and sometimes your catch!). We are sorry you didn't get to catch as many fish as you wanted and we hope you'll give us another try soon.

    This was an awesome experience!

    I booked this trip months in advance for our FL vacation. We arrived 20 minutes before departure. We boarded the boat and departed on time. We had 7 people for the excursion. While we were going out to sea, the crew provided instructions for baiting the hooks, dropping in the line and reeling in. This was perfect as it was my first time deep sea fishing. They set us up on both sides of the boat with bait and plenty of room. They provided buckets for our catch and would put them in the cooler during the trip. The crew was very attentive and helpful. The captain would move to a better spot when the fish were not biting. I felt a little seasick during the trip, and the crew member that was helping me came to check on me and would bait my hooks for me as well. It was great having the personal... read more
