Here at Intercoastal Safaris we pride our self on offering “Uniquely Coastal Hunting & Fishing” experiences to our guest. Daytime sword fishing defiantly fits the bill, it’s unlike anything else offered in the Gulf of Mexico. Destin, FL has the perfect combination of weather, ocean currents and sea floor terrain that continue to help it earn the reputation of being “The luckiest little fishing village on earth!”
Join our professional captains as they head 60 pluss miles offshore in search of the broadbill swordfish. Swordfish are considered by most sport fishermen to be the strongest and meanest fish in the ocean. If you want to test your will, skill and endurance this is the trip for you. Let us be very clear in stating that this is nothing like the luxurious excursions that many of our clients have come to know and love. The best time to embark on this sea bound adventure are the 10 days leading up to a full moon from May to August.
Out of respect for this magnificent sea creature we strictly use conventional tackle. There are no electric reels to rely on. This is truly a fight between man and beast. While we are very proud of our success ratio this excursion does not always end in a trophy photo at the end of the day. On the other end of the spectrum we have landed more than one swordfish in a single trip. Other species caught on this trip include mahi, mahi, tuna, pomfret, oil fish, wahoo and white marlin. These trips may be taken year round and we will be more than happy to clean and package your catch.
If your looking for truly unique fishing experience please give us a call for more details. Lodging & ground transportation also available upon request.
