    Second trip with these guys and they are top notch. Captain Alex put us on fish, asked for input (what we wanted out of the trip, type of fish, ...) and was committed to making sure we had a great time. He strikes the right balance of guiding … More (for a couple of Tennessee Hillbillies that has little experience with saltwater) and letting us make some decisions as well. Boat and gear are well maintained. I do not think I would enjoy the large charters at all after spending some time with this crew.

    Had a great time out today with Captain Alex! Dennis the owner and Alex are both great people and will do what they have to, to put you on some fish. My second time deep sea fishing with Semper Fish charters and would most definitely recommend … More these guys to anyone. Also if you’re wondering what kind of people they are, it was seven years ago I went out with some friends with Dennis and that is the only time and then a couple months ago I called Semper Fish and after 7 years Dennis remembered who I was. So that should show you that they are great people! Can’t wait for the next time!

    Capt Dennis made booking trip for my family easy and hassle free. He set us out with Capt Alex who is a first class angler and professional operator. He was patient, kept our lines in the water, and the fish biting! Will book with them … More again next time we’re in the area!

    My husband and I went on a half day fishing trip at the end of March and had an incredible time. Captain Alex was very knowledgeable, friendly, and professional which made our experience an enjoyable one. Within a minute of stopping at … More our first fishing spot we were catching fish and ended up being able to keep a lot of the fish we caught. Later on in the morning we even caught a 6ft shark! Overall, we loved our experience and know if we go back to the Destin area we would fish with Semper Fish again.

    This fishing experience with Semper Charters was great. It was a 5 out of 5. Captain Alex was a great Captain had a fun and very active experience and caught a good mesh of fish. I recommend it to anyone would come back again.
  • Avatar fischer hutchison ★★★★★ a month ago
    The best fishing charter I’ve been on! Alex and PJ were awesome! Made us feel comfortable and kept us on fish! Real deal for sure!
  • Avatar Mitchell Stroud ★★★★★ 3 weeks ago
    Alex was our captain and he was the best! Knew all the great spots. Listen to his directions and advice and you'll have a great trip.

    We had a great time with Captain Dennis last week in Destin. He was punctual and waiting for us when we arrived, and his communication prior to the trip was excellent. We had a four-year-old and three adults, and Captain Dennis made the … More experience kid and family friendly. Even if you are an amateur or have never fished before, I highly recommend Semper Fish Charters given Captain Dennis' hands on approach to the fishing experience. He was very helpful with retrieving fish upon reeling in and helping put bait back on our poles. Unfortunately our trip got cut short due to weather and while we had really hoped to fish more, the day was memorable and we caught a nice amount of fish.
  • Avatar Nathan Biddle ★★★★★ 9 months ago
    My wife and I had family visiting from out of town and we decided to take them fishing. Capt Dennis with Semper Fish was the perfect choice. He was very professional and got us on fish the whole morning. If the fish weren't biting, … More he'd already have another spot in mind and we would be back on the fish again. We already have plans to book with Semper Fish again in a couple of months. If anyone is looking for a good time in Destin, book a trip with Semper Fish!
  • Avatar C Harber ★★★★★ a year ago
    We have been fishing with Captain Dennis since 2017. Our growing boys are always excited to get out fishing, and the Captain is great with families and kids! He’s down to earth and just a great guy. We’ve targeted several species on all … More of our many trips and have had great luck each time. It’s really nice having just your group/family on the boat and not a lot of strangers ( as you would in a party boat).
  • Avatar Sabrina Lecinski ★★★★★ a year ago
    This was my first time booking a private charter and we were not disappointed. The customer service was fantastic. Captain Andy was very knowledgeable of the marine life there in Destin. Caught us a pretty good sized King!
  • Avatar Jay Waschak ★★★★★ a year ago
    Semper Fish is absolutely the best. We try to take trips once a year with the whole family and the kids, ages 6 through 14, always have a great time. If there are fish to be caught Captain Dennis will take you there.
  • Avatar jeannel huston ★★★★★ a year ago
    We were unable to take our fishing trip due to weather... HOWEVER, the customer service given by captain Dennis and captain Andy was phenomenal!! They were so kind and helpful. We sat for a while waiting to see if the rain would go away … More but it never did. We were so upset we were unable to fish but we will definitely be calling them up again to go out next time we are in Florida! Definitely give them a call.
  • Avatar Blake Graham ★★★★★ a year ago
    Went fishing today (mid June) with Capt. Dennis. Had an absolute blast. We caught red snapper, black snapper, and 1 grouper. Met up at 6am at his boat and were fishing within the hour. Highly recommend, this was a great trip.

  • Avatar J.C. ★★★★★ a year ago
    About 5 minutes out on the water and my boys were catching fish! This is exactly what I wanted for my teenagers! Captain Andy was so fun and knowledgeable! We would definitely book again!
  • Avatar Kelly Hamly ★★★★★ a year ago
    We have gone with Semper Fish for three years now and have a great and memorable time each time! Highly recommend!
  • Avatar Benjamin Abella ★★★★★ a year ago
    We had a terrific experience with Semper Fish - captain Andy was superb! Enthusiastic, great with kids, experienced and clearly loves his job. We had a wonderful day on the water. Our teenage sons loved it.
  • Avatar JZ Man ★★★★★ a year ago
    From start to finish, this trip was memorable. I took my brother in law on his first salt water fishing trip and I can say that he won't forget it anytime soon. Our captain, Captain Andy, did a fantastic job making sure that we caught … More fish, but that wasn't the most important part of the trip for me. He was genuinely interested in us having a memorable trip as well. All the way from the start to finish we had a great trip. Even at the end of the trip, I caught a fish then a shark caught the fish!. He chased the shark with us and coached us in how to land this thing. All of us knew that we wouldn't land the shark because we caught it on light tackle. The rod and reel was a light Shimamo open faced reel with 65lb braid, a 35lb leader and a hook more fit for bass fishing than shark fishing. Even with that, he chased the shark for over a mile, measured by GPS, and we spent the next hour and twenty minutes chasing the shark. We finally got the shark wore down enough to reel it next to the surface and get some parting shots. Great trip, can't wait to book again.
  • Avatar Jeff Borutta ★★★★★ a year ago
    We had a great time with Andy, he put us on the fish all morning and we caught our limit. We will be using Semper Fishing next time we are in town.
  • Avatar Derrick Ulrich ★★★★★ a year ago
    Me and my father booked a 4 hour trip and it was a great time! Captain Andy did and amazing job finding fish and teaching us everything we needed to know. Highly recommend booking a trip with them.
  • Avatar Mickey Shrader ★★★★★ a year ago
    Just finished up another fantastic trip with Capt. Dennis! We have been going with Capt. Dennis for years now. I would not dream of booking anyone else for my charter fishing trips. Many times we just drive down for the weekend just to … More go fishing with Capt. Dennis. He makes the trip fun and always productive. Thanks again for another fun trip!

    What a great fishing trip. We booked for a half day, and boy did we get our money's worth! Excellent and experienced, friendly, knowledgeable! Our grandson had the time of his life--and we did too!! You cannot go wrong with this … More group! We will be coming back again soon!!
  • Avatar Lisa Brown ★★★★★ 3 years ago
    Captain Dane is fantastic! He was brave enough to serve our nation as a marine and brave enough to take 4 women out fishing! We had an absolute blast. Caught King Mackerel, Corgi, shark and an unforgettable experience with a Dolphin with … More her head coming out of the water RIGHT next to the boat begging to be fed. Will definitely book with him again. He is very diligent in finding the fish. Thanks Dane!
  • Avatar Jay GODSEY ★★★★★ 3 years ago
    Took my son on his first trip with Semper Fish Charters. Captain Dane was an absolute lucky Genius. We caught a limit of Mingo, 2 nice triggers (out of season though), King Mack, and my son caught an awesome Amber Jack (2 flippin' … More inches short of a keeper) I have been on several trips, and I will say Semper Fish is our Charter from now on! Topped it off with some nice food from our catch. If you want a good time, with even better Captains, call Dennis and Dane with Semper Fish!
  • Avatar Michael Powers ★★★★★ 3 years ago
    Great trip during the October rodeo! Couldn't ask for a better experience and captain! Can't wait for our next time !
  • Avatar Troy Smith ★★★★★ 3 years ago
    Haven't been on a saltwater fishing trip in awhile & i loved it! Captain Dane was amazing ! It was almost like fishing in my ponds in Mississippi going straight to my honey hole ! If you wanna catch some fish , have them fillet … More when you get off the boat, laugh, and have a good time why not choose Semper Fishing ?
  • Avatar Kyle Willcut ★★★★★ 3 years ago
    Been twice with these guys. Always catch fish and a lot better than the big charter boats.
