Our goal at Book Me A Charter is to provide the best Inshore and Offshore Fishing, Oystering and Tour guide
services in the area. Our captains are experienced in the waters of the
Apalachicola Area including the Gulf of Mexico.
Your Enjoyment and Safety are the Captains top priority!
Feel free to browse around our site, view the photographs in our gallery, and
learn a little about our services and area.
are located in Franklin County, Florida, on the Apalachicola Bay,
approximately 70 miles west of Tallahassee, and approximately 60 miles
east of Panama City. (See our FAQ page for a
map.) We are small fishing communities that some call the "Forgotten
Coast", but we call it Paradise. Our seafood is world renowned, while
our fishing is excellent. Our sunrise and sunsets on the water are
absolutely, breathtaking. We have the Apalachicola River, the
Apalachicola Bay, and the Gulf of Mexico in our backyard. We have the
best of it all here in our little laid back and hidden Paradise!
Our local guides will take you on a real oysterboat and teach you the
art of oyster harvesting. We natives of Apalachicola Bay are often
asked, "How do you pick up oysters with those sticks?" Book an
oystering cultural tour with one of our captains and find out exactly
how they do it. During your oystering tour, we will demonstrate how to
tong, cull and harvest oysters from a legal harvest area. Yes, you can
take your catch home with you -Florida law limits two recreational bags
per boat. (Occasionally, due to water conditions, part or all harvest
areas are closed. That doesn't mean that we can't show you how to
harvest, it simply means that oysters can't be removed from the area or
eaten.) Watch the professional commercial fishermen as they do their
daily jobs in the same way they have been harvesting for over 150
years. While on the water you may see crab boats, shrimp boats, and of
course oyster boats.
We offer Apalachicola Bay, River and Gulf of Mexico fishing-full and
half day charters. Most of our guides were at one time commercial
fishermen, so they know where the fish are. Our expert guide fishermen
are familiar with these waters and know how and where the fish feed.
Our guides are highly sought after, so book early to insure your trip
with one of our local guidesmen. On your River Fishing trip, you may
catch Bass, Bream, Catfish, Perch, or Trout. On your Bay Fishing trip,
you may catch Redfish, Trout, Sheephead, Drum, Tripletail, Flounder or
Mackerel. On your Gulf Fishing trip, you may catch Grouper, Snapper,
Sea Bass, Mackerel, Dolphin (mahi-mahi), Amberjack, Wahoo and
a variety of many others. Here in Paradise, we have it all! So, which
do you prefer, fishing the River, Bay, or Gulf?
Go sightseeing with one of our Informative Captains, let the wind blow through
your hair, breathe the fresh salt air. Watch the boats as they harvest seafood,
be it oysters, shrimp or fish, and sometimes talk to the fishermen as they work.
Dolphins are a frequent sight on our tours, listen as they come up for air,
watch as they suddenly appear from nowhere. There are four barrier islands, they
are Dog Island, St. George Island, Little St. George Island and St. Vincent
Island. Go see the barrier islands that surround the Apalachicola Bay. You can
go shelling or exploring, Our river is full of wildlife- turtles, birds, and
course alligators. These are just few of the things that you may see on our
