5 out of 5 stars

Fishing offshore here in the beautiful Florida Keys is what we do.  We can spend a half day reef fishing for snapper and grouper or we can spend a full day Mahi Mahi, sailfish, tuna, and wahoo fishing.  This is your Boat if your looking for a wahoo or dolphin of a lifetime.

We know you’re looking for big thrills on the high seas! Islamorada is the Fishing Capital of the World, and Costa Morada is one of the best charters in the area! Family owned and operated, Captain Claude Tristram welcomes you aboard Costa Morada for a great family fishing excursion.

Your group of six are invited onboard for an incredible day of fishing. Whether you’re a local, or visiting with your family – fishing is an amazing group experience. We’ve had bachelor/bachelorette parties, family reunions, guys’ trips, and corporate trips; and we’re able to accommodate your group as well! For groups larger than 6 people, we can coordinate with other charters to get everyone out for a great day.

Costa Morada Fishing Charters has a clean and well-maintained vessel. Your group will fish aboard this awesome 39ft Key West custom built Sportfish. Captain Claude is an experienced and adventurous pilot, and the boat is fully equipped for your day at sea in Islamorada. There is a spacious cabin with seating in the fly bridge and a roomy cockpit. The inside cabin has two couches and a cooler for you to store your drinks (ice is provided). We recommend you bring your own food and drinks, along with sunscreen and appropriate fishing attire (hat, sunglasses, long-sleeve fishing shirts, etc.). The vessel also has a bathroom for your comfort.

Trips are reasonably priced starting at $800 for a four hour trip. The most popular trip is 3/4 day (6 hours) and that gives us plenty of time to hit a few places and make some great catches. Costa Morada Fishing Charters also offers a full day (8 hour) trip as well as some nightime fishing. We have an inshore Tarpon trip for only $500, or we can go deepsea fishing for some swords!

The fishing in Islamorada is without a doubt some of the best in the world. Every fish species swims by in the Gulf Stream just a few miles away. Depending on the season, we’re sure to have the fish you’re looking to catch! Anglers of all ages and skill level are welcome aboard! Costa Morada Fishing Charters looks forward to fishing with you… book today!

Half days are usually productive as we stay somewhat close to home. We target large Snappers up to 25 lbs and often get to catch sailfish and king mackerel.  Here in the Florida keys we are fortunate enough to target offshore species in a short time.

3 Day Cancellation Policy

We drift about 25 miles offshore and fish for swordfish that come up to the surface and feed high up in the water colums at night using mostly large squid for bait.  We are able to use 3 or more rods as oppose to daytime fishing for swordfish that makes using more than one rod almost impossible.

    • Highly Recommend

      Created Ron Howard

      Amazing day on the Costa Morada! Captain Claude and first mate Anniston were great! 4 hour trip and plenty of fish! Cooked some of the yellow tail snapper tonight and plenty left to take home! Highly recommended!

    • Sunday Trip

      Created Elisa Cribas

      We had an AMAZING last Sunday with Captain Claude, little pirate Nate, first mate Addison and apprentice Richard. We actually thought our trip was going to be cancelled due to Hurricane Isaias but Claude was keeping me updated on the weather and water conditions and decided to change our trip to Sunday instead for a full day of fishing and WOW what an experience we had. This was our first time going deep sea fishing, the whole crew is very knowledgeable, accommodating and personable Addison and Richard were very patient teaching us how to catch mahi and tuna. Addison is a beast he was constantly moving around the boat taking care of us and was on top of everything. We ended up catching 10 blackfin tunas and 6 mahis. I highly recommend Costa Morada fishing charters to anyone looking to have a great fishing experience. We will be going back in the future for sure!!

    • Fantastic Time!

      Created Teri Blais

      Captain Claude and first mate Addison went out of their way to help us catch mahi! Beautiful boat with fresh bait, nice rods & shady outdoor area to take a break in. Hard working captain & crew made a fantastic family trip for us!

    • Lots of experience!

      Created Jamie Snediker

      Captain Claude and his little mate Nate were the greatest! We left at 6 am and were back by noon with a boat load of mahi! Best deal around for the level of experience that comes with the the trip.

    • Very Professional!

      Created Layne McCombs

      Went down to Islamorada with a bunch of friends for the weekend and we book a trip with Captain Claude on the Costa Morada. He was very professional and and really knows how to put you on the fish. I would highly recommend booking a trip for an amazing time!

    • Recommended to Anyone

      Created Travis Cox

      Great experience, highly recommend! Captain Claude and his first mate Addison provided us with not only dolphin fish to take back home but a ton of knowledge.

    • Great Family Trip!

      Created Mike Sovay

      Great team! Capt. Claude and Mate Addison were top notch. Both were constantly moving around the boat taking care of myself, two ladies and two 7 & 9 old boys.

    • Beyond what I Expected!

      Created Stephen Peroza

      was beyond what we expected. The Costa Morada was very comfortable and Captain Claude and shipmate Cole were very accommodating, making sure our excursion was a memorable experience. I still can't believe all the different types of fish we caught. It's great to see two former students of mine have a successful business. Great time guy's, see you next year. Mr. P

    • Super Comfortable!

      Created Alexandra Torres

      The charter boat is very comfortable, captain and the mates are super friendly and have a great attitude. They make sure their charter has a lot of fun as well as catching as much fish as possible. They are very accommodating for children. Great charter boat! I highly recommend it

    • Great Experience!

      Created Jeff Palmeri

      y family had such a great time out on the boat, it was an awesome experience for all of us. The captain and mates were so friendly and personable. I could tell how much experience and knowledge they had as soon as we stepped on the boat. To top it all off we caught a ton of fish! The next time I’m in the Keys I will definitely be stopping back at Costa Morada.
