Key West Deep Sea Fishing

World-Class Fishing in the Florida Keys.
Charterboat heading offshore from Key West
Available for charter, this top-notch offshore boat will take you on an exciting deep sea fishing trip.

The island of Key West is home to an impressive fleet of professional offshore charter fishing boats.

Our charter boat captains are focused on the world-class, big-game sportfishing the Florida Keys are famous for.

Why is Key West such an amazing fishing destination? Location, location, location. You see, the Florida Keys, located in the Florida Straits, is uniquely positioned where three bodies of water converge:

  1. the Gulf of Mexico,
  2. the Atlantic Ocean,
  3. the Gulf Stream/Caribbean water

As a matter of fact, the seas between Key West & Cuba are considered the most biologically diverse part of the entire Atlantic Ocean.

For the serious angler, this means a rewarding range of gamefish including:

  • Sailfish
  • Marlin - Blue, White
  • Dolphin - MahiMahi/Dorado
  • Tuna - Yellowfin, Blackfin, Bonito
  • King Mackerel
  • Wahoo
  • Jacks - Amberjack, Barjack

No doubt, deep sea fishing in Key West became more famous due to Ernest Hemingway. An avid outdoorsman, the writer enjoyed fishing Key West's offshore waters for billfish. Stories of his battles with Blue Marlin are now island legend.

Throughout the year, different fish will migrate into the nearby waters. Wintertime Tuna & Kingfish, summertime Dolphin (Mahi-Mahi/Dorado) and Billfish, and a host of year-round species keep the action in Key West consistently hot.

Keys Fishing Fact
The Florida Keys are located in the most biologically diverse area of the Atlantic Ocean. Due to the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean sandwiching the islands, while the warm Gulf Stream current meanders close by, the ocean surrounding the Keys contains more species of fish than anywhere else in the Atlantic.
