Highlights Affordable Key West Fishing Great for Kids Includes PARKING, tackle, bait, and license Add $5.00 rod rental fee Enclosed full service galley Description The 58-foot Key West Party Boat Fishing Charter that’s inspected twice a year by the US Coast Guard, motors up to 60 passengers swiftly out to deep-sea fishing spots thanks to twin Detroit 8v92 turbo engines. Once anchored, the ship’s amenities—which range from men’s and women’s restrooms to a galley serving snacks—keep anglers comfortable between casts. Our friendly Captains and mates will assist first-time fisherman and even seasoned professionals make the most of their fishing experience. They'll even bait your hook! The Key West Party Boat Fishing Charter gets the fish you want to put on your table! Of course you may keep your fish. Fishing cleaning is available for $.50 per fish. Not sure you know how to do it? Let our experienced crew show you every step of the way. Successful fishing starts with a knowledgeable crew. We have the longest head boat trip on the island for the same prices as some of the shorter trips. Bottom fishing for snapper, grouper, mackerel and shark! Imagine the lightning-like stripe down the side of a yellowtail snapper or the marbled, almost serpentine pattern on a black grouper. The waters off the Florida Keys teem with such visually stunning marine life, and the crews of Key West Party Boat Fishing Charter know how to catch them! Call us and say "I want to go fishing in Key West!"

First I have to say the crew was awesome. Captain Six took us to 3 different locations and Ray the first mate was awesome in helping us fish. I will be doing this again next time I'm in key west. Highly recommend this party boat.

My husband and I enjoyed this experience. The price was unbeatable compared to the other choices at the pier lined up. The trip was about 45 minutes out to the Atlantic and it passed by very quickly. They had mattes that was very helpful and experienced in helping everyone in a quick and timely manner. They filet the fish for you after the trip. We made some lasting friendships with people that we will never forget with other fisherman on the trip. We loved it so much we went twice on the morning trip and the night fishing trip. The sunset was beautiful! You are exposed to the elements of nature at hand but they deal with it accordingly. Two different captains and two different experiences. We enjoyed them both and the experience.

Gulfstream IV is an older boat, but serviceable for a fishing excursion. There was just the captain and one mate on hand for about 20-25 of us --a mix of old/young/experienced/ rookie fisherman. Several smokers. We did have some light rain and then a heavy downpour that lasted about 10 minutes that sent everyone into the covered galley area. I think the boats capacity is 50-60 people-had there actually been that many it would have been uncomfortable with the conditions. The boat did have some rocky moments with big waves-I had taken Dramamine and was ok, but a couple people ended up just laying down and suffering much of the trip. Honestly, no one caught any big fish-mostly Grunts and small Yellowtail. But those are the variables that you can't really plan for-whether fish are biting, the weather, or how many fellow passengers you'll have. I can't say anything negative about the crew, but considering the expense involved, I would probably not be inclined to do this again.
