Here at Intercoastal Safaris, we take great pride in offering “Uniquely Coastal Hunting & Fishing” experiences to our guests. Our daytime swordfishing excursions are no exception! Our trips are unlike anything else offered in the Gulf of Mexico. Destin, Florida
& Orange Beach, AL
have the perfect combination of weather, ocean currents and seafloor terrain that make them it “The luckiest little fishing villages on earth!”
Swordfishing: A Fishing Trip Like No Other
To clarify captains as they head 60-plus miles offshore in search of the broadbill swordfish
. These denizens of the deep 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: This trip is nothing like the luxurious excursions that many of our clients have come to know and love. Out of respect for this magnificent sea creature, we use strictly conventional tackle. Notably here are no electric reels to rely on, just rod and reel, muscle and sweat in this classic fight between man and beast.
Swordfishing and More!
In fact, the best time to embark on this sea-bound adventure is the 10 days leading up to a full moon
from May to August. While we are very proud of our success ratio, these excursions do not always
end in a trophy photo at the end of the day. While we have landed more than one swordfish in a single trip, it is never guaranteed. However, our waters always offer up the chance for other species such as mahi-mahi, tuna, pomfret, oil fish, wahoo and even white marlin.
