Destin Lives Up to Nickname – World’s Luckiest Fishing Village
Thereâ€™s magic in these waters! Â Destin is known as the â€śWorldâ€™s Luckiest Fishing Villageâ€ť and we are home to Floridaâ€™s largest fishing fleet. With more than 20 kinds of edible fish in the Gulf, the charter fleet of more than 140 vessels brings in thousands of pounds of fish daily. The bluefin tuna caught aboard â€śYou Never Knowâ€ť is one for the record books!
The huge variety of fresh fish has inspired our area chefâ€™s to create unique Gulf-to-table cuisine for dining in Destin, Fl. You can find a full listing of all of the restaurants that participate in the Gulf-to-table program here. Some of our Destin seafood favorites are Brotulaâ€™s Seafood House & Steamer, Jackacudaâ€™s Seafood & Sushi, AJâ€™s Seafood & Oyster Bar, Camilleâ€™s at Crystal Beach, and Harbor Docks.
If you would like to schedule your own fishing adventure, we can recommend several local captains who will make your excursion extra-special. From deep sea fishing to inshore fishing, there is something for everyone. You can connect with those fishing captains here. Book now to secure available spots. Red snapper dates are available starting June 1 and ending July 19.
