You could end up exploring the nearby waters of Fleming Key, Stock Island, Marquesas Keys, Dry Tortugas, Big Coppit Key, and many other locations in the area in search of your trophy catch. 

Fishing will be done off of our 28ft catamaran that makes Florida Keys fishing charters a breeze. She has enough room on board for up to six passengers. The vessel is powered by twin Yamaha 250 engines and there are state-of-the-art electronics to help find the fish. Safety equipment includes life jackets, flares, EPIRB, VHF radio, and First Aid Equipment.

More details

Target mainly snapper and grouper with kingfish, wahoo and tuna as frequent bi-catch.

This trip is not for the faint of heart. Dy Tortugas lies 72 miles west of Key West. We will cover a lot of ocean and catch big fish.
This trip covers long distances but with huge payoffs. Big mutton snapper and larger grouper are the main attraction. The Dry Tortugas is a largely untapped resource due to its remote location.
