Captain JJ Botelho is a Fort Walton Beach native, who grew up fishing the beautiful waters of the Emerald Coast as often as possible. Some of his best memories as a child were getting into some big schools of fish while on the boat with his Mom and Dad. "Nothing beats doing what you love with who you love", says Captain JJ. As a teenager he spent most of his time fishing on the Okaloosa Island Pier and will be forever grateful for the knowledge and experience he gained from his fellow anglers on the pier. It's not uncommon to run into Captain JJ fishing on that pier to this day.
"It's important to me to remember exactly where I came from and to never forget those who've made me the angler/person I am today. My biggest satisfaction from fishing these days is teaching kids how to fish and watching them catch some of the biggest fish they've ever laid eyes. It's the reason I do what I do, as well as a constant reminder of why I started fishing in the first place!" - Captain JJ Botelho
Our Cape Horn boats are sure to keep you dry and comfortable for a great day on the water! Several guides out of Destin use Cape Horns for their charters because of their versatility both in the Choctawhatchee Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. The heaviness of the hull and the width of the beam make these boats ride like a dream, especially in conditions where most boats of their size wont match up. Our boats are equipped with GPS, Fishfinder, VHF Radio, Livewell, Cooler, and all required safety equipment. Our Cape Horn boats are perfect for Inshore, Nearshore, Reef, Wreck, Flats, Backcountry, and Deep Sea charters. Rods, Reels, Tackle, Live Bait, Lures, Fishing License, and Cleaning and Filleting of your catch are all included in your trip.
