Cheap Fishing Key West on a Party Boat

Party boat fishing uses a large boat capable of carrying a group of fishermen at a time.

These Key West fishing trips will head out to their chosen spots and chum up schools of snapper, grunt, grouper, and others. Anglers drop their lines over the sides and work the nibbles.

Considerably less expensive than private charters, most guests catch dinner.

Of the three in Key West, the party fishing boat that we recommend and know you’ll be happy with is the Tortuga, a brand- new 64 foot x 24 foot, catamaran hull, party fishing boat. Her features include:

  • USCG Certificied
  • Powered by two new Yanmar engines
  • Free rod, bait, and fishing license
  • Spacious fishing deck with bench seating
  • Air-conditioned, Full-service galley serving snacks and beverages
  • Two modern bathrooms
  • Sundeck

The Tortuga is Key West’s only catamaran style party-fishing boat (meaning a more stable and comfortable boat). The marina the boat leaves from, Conch Harbor, is located in Old Town Key West - the most convenient of any party boat.

Fishermen typically catch grouper, snapper, porgy, and cobia. Of course, other species also join in the action.

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.
