*All trips require a 20% deposit. We take checks and all major credit cards except American Express any time before the trip and cash only at the dock.
OFFSHORE- For the more adventurous angler, we offer all day offshore trips for daytime swordfishing and big game trolling. These type of trips leave the dock before daylight and involve long runs offshore to the fishing grounds. While daytime swordfishing is the most consistent fishery for us offshore, it is typical to have chances at yellowfin tuna, mahi, wahoo, and even white and blue marlin while we are offshore. This is big game fishing, and if you want to test your will and endurance on the fish of a lifetime then this is the trip for you.
Captain Adam Peeples
Captain Adam Peeples is a USCG licensed charter boat captain with many years experience on the water. Growing up as a young boy fishing the “cut” at St. George Island for redfish, the salt water fishing bug bit him at an early age. After growing up fishing various areas for many species of salt water fish, Capt Adam enlisted in the U.S. Army and spent 9 years in the Army as a sniper. This included two deployments to Iraq and a stint as an instructor at the U.S. Army Sniper School, hence the name “One Shot Charters”.
Since leaving the military, Capt Adam is a full time guide and fisherman. This is not a hobby for him, but an obsession. He is the guy who is out fishing even on his days off. Although swordfishing is his favorite type of fishing, he is well a well rounded captain and is just as happy to go play with the snapper and king mackerel as he is to spend a day swordfishing. One of Adam’s favorite things to do is take his two daughters fishing, and he thoroughly enjoys introducing the world of salt water fishing to kids. Some of Capt Adam’s professional accomplishments include Sportfishing Magazine’s Charter Captain of the Year for 2016 and 2017, awarded “Best charter of the Emerald Coast 2017” by Emerald Coast Magazine, finished first place fishing with team “Wide Open” in the 2017 Boshamps Swordfish Shootout, 3rd place Catch and Release swordfish divicion fishing with team “Ellie B” during the 2017 MGCBC, 2nd place fishing with team “Kelly Ann” in the 2016 Boshamps Swordfish Shootout, and a couple of other local tournament wins. If you want to fish with someone who loves what they do, Adam is your guy.
Captain Kirk Pristas
Captain Kirk Pristas is an avid Outdoorsman and Conservationist who began fishing the Gulf of Mexico since age ten. Captain Kirk is a native Floridian who grew up on the bay in Lynn Haven which enabled him to experience the many opportunities our great area has to offer. Whether it’s hunting for Sambar Deer on St. Vincent Island, diving for Spiny and Shovelnose Lobster, Alligator hunting, fishing for Tuna and Marlin out in the Gulf or just floundering in the bay, Capt. Kirk has done it all in the local area.
After spending nine years in the Air Force with numerous deployments to the Middle East, Capt. Kirk decided to honorably separate from active duty and return to his native roots. This enabled him to pursue his passion for fishing and the outdoors while being able to show others what unbelievable outdoor experiences our area has to offer.
Capt. Kirk enjoys almost every kind of fishing and always strives to provide the best possible trip that will make memories!
Captain Jarett Ortenzo

If you are around Jarrett, odds are you are laughing and having a good time. Captain Jarrett is a former U.S. Marine who served from 2004-2009, including 2 deployments to Iraq. These days Captain Jarrett captains our 24’ Cape Horn “One Shot”, and takes great pleasure in introducing people to salt water fishing.
