Ocean Charters

Eric Rodriguez Layton, FL Incorporated Licensed Insured

Welcome to Ocean Charters, offering reef, wreck, nearshore, offshore, and backcountry fishing trips in the angler’s paradise that is The Florida Keys. This popular vacation destination offers endless fishing opportunities and we plan to put you right where the fish are biting!

Ocean Charters is dedicated to providing every customer with an amazing experience on the water. Located near Duck Key, in the beautiful Florida Keys, Captain Eric and his crew strive to provide every customer with a fishing adventure to remember.

Captain Eric Rodriguez welcomes you for an enjoyable day on the water aboard his spacious 28ft center console boat, equipped with the latest navigation and safety features.  He provides a cooler with ice, soft drinks and water.  Don’t forget your camera, sunscreen, hat, sunglasses and protective clothing so you are comfortable and protected from the Florida sunshine.

Our deep sea fishing trips begin out of Layton and can go on to venture the fishing grounds of Long Key, Marathon, Islamorada, Duck Key, Plantation Key, Tavernier, and many other fishing hotspots in the Florida Keys.

Ocean Charters employs many different techniques to put you on the fish.  These include, drift fishing, jigging, spinning, bottom fishing, light tackle and trolling.  They use both artificial lures and fresh or live bait during their excursions.  If you prefer, they are also able to accommodate a family eco tour consisting of fishing, exploring, snorkeling and some sandbar time.  Your Ocean Charter trip includes all rods, reels, and tackle.  They also provide snorkeling and spearfishing equipment.

While on your half or full day Ocean Charters fishing adventure, you will be targeting species such as Snapper, Grouper, Mahi Mahi, Tuna, Wahoo and the ever-popular Silver King – The Tarpon (catch and release only).  Your half and full day trips offer you your choice of where you want to fish – offshore, reef, wreck, backcountry or nearshore.

Ocean Charters provides all-inclusive trips, that include everything from fishing licenses, equipment (including snorkeling and spearfishing equipment) and bait to cleaning and filleting your catch to drinks for you to enjoy while out on the water. Their knowledgeable captains and crew will ensure that this trip will be one you won’t forget. Book your adventure today!
