26th Annual Take A Kid Fishing Day

November 07, 2021 07:00 AM until November 07, 2021 02:00 PM

Harbor Docks Charities is hosting the 26th Annual Take-A- Kid-Fishing Day on Sunday, November 7, 2021. For the last 25 years, many area children spent a glorious day fishing aboard many of Destin’s finest charter boats. We have 300 openings for kids that do not often get the chance to fish in the beautiful waters around Destin including the Gulf of Mexico and Choctawhatchee Bay. Off duty policemen 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 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday thru Friday and ask for Jackie. Pre-registration is required.

You can call or fax your reservation, include each child’s name and age, along with their parent’s name and phone number. For Group Reservations, we can fax you the parent release form upon request that will need to be completed by the parent of each child participating.

We will assign a boarding time when the reservation is made. The first group of approximately 150 kids will be signed in at 7 a.m. and the second group will be signed in at 8 a.m.


We will meet downstairs at Harbor Docks Restaurant for a breakfast of orange juice and donuts. Boats board at 7:30 a.m. and return at 12:00 p.m. The second group of children will board at 8:30 a.m. and return at 1:00 p.m. All children will receive a t-shirt, rod and reel as well as a family fish fry.

Teachers who are interested in volunteering or chaperoning, please contact Jackie at Harbor Docks 837-2506 or fax 654-1851.
