With the Florida sun almost never leaving the shores of Key West, this island city of Florida will remind you of the Caribbean islands in more than one. Being just 90 miles away from Cuba, Key West shares the same laid-back lifestyle that is the hallmark of this neighboring country. This small island – less than three miles from end to end – acts at the cruise-ship stop which you can also access from the mainland via the Overseas Highway.
Key West is a location that offers a variety of different types of fishing. Hundreds of fish roam around the waters of this city from the unique mangroves and reefs to the relaxing waves offshore. Whether you go deep sea fishing or throw a line offshore, a day out on the Key West waters will not disappoint. Expect to catch marlin, tuna, kingfish, wahoo in the deep water.
It is important to keep in mind the boating and fishing regulations in the area. In order to fish anywhere in Florida, you need to obtain a Florida fishing license. Separate freshwater and saltwater licenses or combination licenses are available for purchase through the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission or some of the bait and tackle shops in select areas. We recommend that you also bring a copy and read through Florida’s fishing regulations guides. These guides are filled with information on rules, seasons, and limits while you are out angling on the water.
We had a fantastic time with Austin. He was a great host. Communication, the boat, the location, everything. I would highly recommend using Austin to charter your next boat trip in the keys. We did a sandbar day and it was so wonderful. Austin brought everything we needed and took us to a beautiful location.
Austin was an excellent captain. We really enjoyed a small nature walk around the sandbar & our kids saw lots of fun fish, stingrays, crabs etc. Austin was very personable, safe, & knowledgeable about the area & chose the perfect location for our family! He was very helpful (we had all 3 of our children with us) He guided our oldest daughter on a paddle board so that we were able to snorkel with our little kids! His relaxed personality & excitement for all the things my kids discovered while out made for the perfect family day on the water! You won’t be disappointed if you book!
Our family of five all agreed that this was the best vacation day we'd ever had. We snorkeled at Looe reef for an hour or so, and saw hundreds of beautiful fish. We then sped over to the Gulf side to an outstandingly beautiful sand bar which we had all to our ourselves. It was like being on a deserted island. We lunched on the sanbdbar then fished into the deeper water from the sandbar. Caught barracuda, mutton snapper, and mangrove snapper. We then motored over to another sandbar where we explored an island and the kids paddle-boarded in shallow water. Austin was a fantastic captain. Great guy. My kids couldn't stop talking about him all the way home. Already planning next year's day trip.
Austin was excellent! I honestly can't say enough great things about this trip. Everything from start to finish was perfect. He was very punctual with communication, he had the boat cleaned and ready for us when we arrived, he had the cooler filled with waters, he took us to some amazing locations, he even went above and beyond to take pictures of our group and the locations as we didn't have our phones in the water. He had paddle boards, chairs, he came very prepared. We even went a little over our time and he was totally accomodating with that. I cannot recommend Austin enough, we've already booked another trip with him! If you're looking for a fun filled boat day with someone very experienced with the area, book with Austin now! You will NOT be disappointed!!
awesome!! awesome!!. Austin could not have been more accommodating. Great guy. Austin made sure the weather was perfect before taking us out. the day could not have been more perfect and Austin was the icing on the cake. I would highly recommend Austin. he will definitely show you a good time.
Our family had a phenomenal experience! Austin was prompt in communication and professional; he was completely flexible with the itinerary which was great for us. Austin’s knowledge of the waters and the area allowed us to experience some great spots. I can’t recommend this experience enough!
