We (five of us) looked at doing a private charter, but for less than half the price we chose the Destin Princess instead. Its a group boat, there were about 33 or so on board. We did the 4 hour afternoon trip, took about an hour to get to first fishing spot. We caught some right away, when it slowed the capt. moved on to a different spot, caught fish at every stop. Helpful crew, had a good time, caught our limit. They clean the fish for 35 cents a pound, so for 10 bucks they cleaned our catch. Nothing too fancy, no snack bar, bring your own ice chest for drinks and snacks. I recommend that you give them a try.
