Captain your own center console boat for up to 6 people for gulf or bay fishing. Center console style boats are our only option for exploring the Gulf of Mexico (up to 5 miles offshore) as pontoon boats are limited to the bay area. Rentals will depart from the Destin Harbor, approximately one half of one mile from Crab Island and Destin’s East Pass, or 5 minutes by boat. This is only one of our options.
