Harbor Docks Charities is hosting the 28th Annual Take-A-Kid-Fishing Day on Sunday, November 5, 2023. For the last 28 years, thousands of area children spent a glorious day fishing aboard many of Destin’s finest charter boats. This year we will have 300 openings for kids - many of which do not often get the chance to fish in the beautiful waters around Destin including the Gulf of Mexico and Choctawhatchee Bay. Off duty law enforcement and firemen from Destin and Fort Walton Beach as well as other Harbor Docks Charities Volunteers will be the chaperones on these professional charter boats.
Reservations for this free fishing trip are being accepted until the slots are filled. This is for children from 7 to 13 years old. To make a reservation or get additional information call Harbor Docks at 837-2506, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday thru Friday and ask for Jackie. Pre-registration is required.
