Captain Bio

Captain Jason Mikel

Come aboard the Finest Kind, the top Charter Fishing Boat in Destin, Florida. Capt. Jason Mikel with 25 years experience. He’ll take you on the deep sea fishing adventure of your life. The “Finest Kind” is a custom G&S Sportfish boat. We specialize in large groups up to 22 passengers and family fun fishing.

Yes. We encourage all families to fish together. For safety, we provide children life jackets for most children 50 lbs or bigger for smaller children we recommend you bring your own to specifically fit them. 

Yes. We have coolers for your food and drink or you can bring your own cooler. If you want food or drink provided we can accommodate that but there will be an additional charge to cover all expenses.

Yes. We discourage hard liquor but wine or beer is fine. Hard Liquor in our experience doesn’t go well with hot sun or choppy weather so play it safe.

No, except in Louisiana where one is required.   On most federally permitted vessels all of our customers are covered by our vessel license that is paid for by your captain.

Yes, Although most Captains provide tackle bait and ice in the price of your trip you are more than welcome to bring your own gear.

Watch the weather and talk to your Captain for advice on proper attire. In most cases wear light covered clothing for the sun, appropriate clothing for the daily temperature and soft sole tennis shoes, deck shoes or slip resistant sandals. ( NO CROCS or hard sole boots or shoes)

Most likely the mate will clean the catch at the end of the day. Fish cleaning is usually part of the gratuity for the mate. Ask your captain what an appropriate tip should be for your day’s experience.  (It usually runs 15-20% of the charter price.)

Maybe! Most charters are pretty all-inclusive with fuel, bait, ice, and tackle provided. Some charters run a set price but have a fuel surtax added. Ask your captain about any additional charges before you go.

We had an incredible time fishing this week on the Finest Kind. Captain Jason was amazing and Alex was so helpful and patient with all of us. We caught a lot of fish and had a blast. It was a rainy day, but Jason was able to navigate us to some clear skies and great fish. Definitely want to come back soon.

We went last year and again this year fishing for red snapper and both trips were awesome. We had more kids than adults and Alex made sure everyone was taken care of and he worked his tail off the entire trip. We did the four hour trip and the air conditioned cabin is a must in the hot summer!!

Spent the morning on the Finest Kind out of Destin this morning for a 6 hour trip. Had a great time with the captain and Alex even if the waves were high and the skies gray with rain. Most of the other boats turned back but we went ahead and had a good time catching fish. I'd definitely go out again on a longer trip. This boat is definitely the kind of operation you want to fish off of. Everything was top notch.
