How We Do It

With expertly maintained vessels, high quality equipment, and well trained captains and crew, Olin Marler Charters is able to run over 3,000 successful tours per year.



Our History

Located in the heart of the Destin Harbor, Olin Marler Charter Boats provides fishing and dolphin cruise trips. Locally owned and operated, Olin Marler Charter Boats was launched by Olin Marler. A member of the Marler family, one of Destin’s own founding families, Olin was an experienced Captain and fisherman who loved creating and sharing memories out on emerald coast waters.

In business for over 50 years, Olin Marler Charters has grown from a weekend business, to offering year-round dolphin trips and charter fishing excursions on a fleet of beautifully maintained vessels. Olin purchased his first fishing boat in 1965, and joined by his wife Donna Marler starting in 1983, built 9 more boats by the 1990s.


World-Class Tours

Our sightseeing cruises offer a ride on a phenomenal glass-bottom boat, comfortable enough for families with young children or elderly relatives to sit back, relax, and take in the scenic beauty and wildlife.
