At Kekoa Charters in beautiful Islamorada, Florida we are fishing year-round!  Whether it’s for the excitement of seasonal sport fish like Sailfish, Marlin, Kingfish, Wahoo, Mahi-Mahi and Tuna or an equally exciting day of inshore fishing for Tarpon and Bonefish we are passionate about putting you on the fish.  

Captain George Proenza has over 40 years of fishing experience under his belt, so needless to say he knows where the fish are hiding. Kekoa Charters offer budget friendly trips that’ll put YOU on the fish while deep dropping the wrecks and reefs off the Florida Keys.  Bring the family with you, Captain George will share his experience and teach the youngest in your group the techniques needed to get the most bites! 

Kekoa Charters has a safe and well appointed 27-foot center console with two 150hp Yamaha engines. We have all of the rods, reels, tackle and bait you’ll need for the day.  The first mate and Captain will work with your group on techniques to reel in the fish.  Whether you are a first-time fisherman or a seasoned vet, Captain George will put you on the fish and make it an unforgettable day on the water.

Check out our reef and wreck trips!  We have half day morning or afternoon reef and wreck trips and will take you out for an amazing 4 hours!  We also have a 6-hour reef and wreck trip fishing for Mangrove Snapper, Grouper, Shark, Sailfish and Tuna…we want to hook you on the trophy of a lifetime!  If you are ready for a full day offshore, we target Mahi Mahi, Tuna, Wahoo or deep drop for Grouper, Tile fish and more.

Bring the sunscreen, drinks and snacks for the day…we’ll have a cooler of ice waiting for you.  Book with Kekoa Charters to make your fishing trip the highlight of your time in the Florida Keys!
