We are docked at the Fort Walton Beach Yacht Basin.
Welcome to Blue Water Escape Charters! We offer deep sea fishing charters and dolphin excursions. We are located in Fort Walton Beach just five miles west of the Destin Pass. If you are visiting Destin, Okaloosa Island, Fort Walton Beach or Navarre our dock is just a few minutes away.
We target a variety of fish on our fishing trips. These include red snapper, grouper, triggerfish, amberjack, mingo snapper, king mackerel, cobia, mahi mahi, sharks and more. You will catch fish on our fishing trips, guaranteed. If you don’t catch fish, you don’t pay.
We are one of the few center console boats in Fort Walton Beach and Destin licensed to fish in both state and and federal waters. If you book a deep sea fishing charter with us you will have the option of staying in sight of land and fishing in state waters, or heading off-shore for a more serious day of fishing. Either way, you will be fully licensed wherever you fish when chartered with Blue Water Escape Charters.
The success of our charters lies in years of experience. Captain Charles started fishing in Fort Walton Beach and Destin in 1994 and has been a Captain for more than 10 years. He has operated Blue Water Escape Charters since May of 2015. He has worked in the commercial spearfishing industry and operated dive charters. His experience in the Gulf is both above and below the water giving him a unique perspective of fish behavior and habitat. Captain Charles simply knows where and how to catch lots of fish and is ready to share that knowledge with you.
Blue Water Escape Charters has one Captain and it’s Captain Charles, the owner. We are not a fishing trip factory, and value each and every one of our customers and hope to bring you back year after year. You will not be surprised by the Captain of the week. You will have the owner onboard making sure the trip meets your expectations.
A deep sea fishing crew needs the right equipment to be successful. Our boat, the Respite, is a 27 foot Cape Horn center console vessel with twin engines. She was built locally and designed for deep sea fishing in our waters. She is equipped with only the best fishing electronics and stocked with the best tackle for the job.

We had a great day of spearfishing with Captain Chris along with Carl as our local dive guide! Couldn't have asked for a better day. Highly recommended for anyone wanting to dive/Spearfish with very a knowledgeable and safe boat/crew. Thanks for a great outing and will definitely return soon.
Went out with Captain Charles and Thomas. It was an awesome experience! They took us right where the fish were. It was non stop the whole time. Will recommend them to anyone looking for a good time.
The trip was awesome !!! Charles put us on fish and kept us Tight Lined the whole day his son will be one of the best deck hands you see constantly working to keep the hooks baited and the fish on ice !!! I would highly recommend Blue Water Escapes to everyone !!! Can't wait till next year
I hadn't been fishing in a very long time, so I was sort of ignorant to the whole process. Both captain Charles and his son (deckhand) were very patient and explained everything to us. They were very knowledgable and experienced. If you want to go salt water fishing, I highly recommend Blue Water Escape Charters. They provide comfortable seating, great music, and a wonderful atmosphere. Probably the best fishing experience I have ever had, hands down!
First time doing a charter fishing trip and it was an awesome experience. They made sure we caught fish and had fun. We will definitely use them again next year..!! Thanks Charles and Charles!!!!
I chartered Capt Josh and Capt Charles for research dives on nGOM lionfish. They are great to work with: incredibly knowledge, helpful and friendly. They do not cut corners, especially on safety. I would recommend and use them again for research or recreational diving.
I loved the 8 hours trip we had on this boat! It was very comfortable and we caught tons of awesome fish! We caught lots of AJ that we had to throw back because they were just under 34" but we still came home with 7 bags of fillets! This was a great trip! Can't wait to go again!
Had an awesome time, caught tons of fish. These guys knew what to do and where to go. Would definitely do it again!
