MEET THE CAPTAIN
Capt. Art Smith has fished the waters around Destin Florida for over 25 years. He also spent a lot of time exploring under the sea as a Master S.C.U.B.A. Diving Instructor for the past 35 years not only along the Emerald Coast but all over the world. So you might say he knows where the fish live. He takes pride knowing that he can guarantee that he can place you above the fish. Captain Art has been the Master of this 48 foot custom built charter boat with a walk around deck and a 20×17 foot fishing cock pit, for over ten years. When you board the Miss Nautica you are not just a customer you become part of the crew. Once you are part of the crew, you become one of the family who is always welcome and taken well care of.
When the vessel returns to the dock he will hang your fish and assist you in taking photos of your catch, so don’t forget your camera. If you would prefer, he can arrange for them to be taken professionally by one of our local photographers, just let us know in advance. The first mate will then cut and bag your catch of the day and proceed in cleaning the boat for tomorrow’s trip.
