About the Trip...
Key West has some of the best fishing found anywhere in the world, and our wreck and reef charters offer the best opportunity to experience the best fishing Key West has to offer. It’s a great boat ride for about 10 miles to some of the many wrecks and reefs in the area where you will fish for Snapper, Grouper, Amberjack, Cobia, Permit, Mackerel, Shark, Barracuda, and a wide variety of other fish. Depending on weather conditions you may also fish in sheltered waters near Mangrove islands for many different species of fish including Tarpon, Grouper, Permit and Mangrove Snapper. It’s a great trip for both experienced or novice fisherman. You can get as involved in hands on fishing as you like or if you feel like it, let us do the work while you sit back and relax.
Explore, Swim, and just RELAX, welcome to the real Florida Keys! For those who want to skip the fishing but still get out on the water and see the unique ecosystem of the Backcountry, join us on a tour of the many uninhabited islands, shallow flats, and deserted beaches. It’s all smooth calm beautiful water in these areas which are protected wildlife preserves and extend from Key West to the Everglades. See turtles, dolphin, eagles, rays, and shark while we wander through narrow channels in between mangrove islands. We will stop and relax at some sandy beaches, have some cold drinks, and enjoy wading or a swim from our easy to use boarding platform.
We had a great time on our charter with captain Bill! Our kids (11, 9, 7 and 5) loved to catch fish, swim at a sandbar and see the sights of the gulf for the day! The experience was better than we expected and we look forward to doing it again for our next trip!
Had a great afternoon out in the Key West waters, thanks to Captain Bill! We wanted to do 2 things in a short amount of time: fish some sharks and fish for our dinner. We were able to do both, and they sent us to a great place to get our catch cooked! Everything about it was easy and fun! I highly recommend this charter.
We had an amazing time! Bill was extremely knowledgable about the areas to find fish. He was wonderful and patient with the boys. Best charter boat fishing I've ever done. We are all looking forward to doing it again next year and several years to come.
