Captain Payton, the owner of Southern Country Charters, has been fishing and hunting since childhood! After over 20 years of experience boating, Payton decided to open Southern Country Charters to share his passion for fishing and living on the water with others through fishing charter experiences.
While Payton no longer captains all of our fishing charters, he personally trains and manages all of Southern Country Charter’s captains, to ensure the best possible experience for every guest while out on the water.
In addition to Payton’s training, our captains are some of the most experienced on the Emerald Coast, with countless years of combined boating and fishing charter experience. Whether you take a fishing trip with Captain Herbie, or a sailing adventure with Captain Bill, you’re in for an exciting, safe, and fun-filled experience!
