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!"

Went out with the boat last Thursday. Nice crew, clean boat, decent food and drink to purchase. They allow regulars to get a season pass and they get the preferential stern spots. They also bring 3 rods, their own bait and spinning gear, and are very experienced obviously. Soooo....when they ask you to kick in $5 bucks for biggest fish... More

Capt. Syx and mate Ray are the best!! Fish don't always bite yet, they work hard to make it a great day for all. If you are in KW and want a fun day of fishing, no hassles, these guys are it. We saw sea turtles and dolphins too!

I've been on 3 party/cheap charters and this was by far the worst waste of both money and time. Only people on stern of boat caught anything...and that's where the crew were the WHOLE time! Especially when one of the crew or his kids was doing most of the catching. Not once did the captain or crew ask how we... More

Paul, I am terribly sorry your expectations were not met on this trip. We do our best to make sure that everyone on the trip is instructed on how to fish the waters in Key West and that they are in fact catching fish. Our crew walks around the entire boat assisting everyone onboard. I wish you would have mentioned... More

The Dolphins swam rigt off the bow of the boat , you could almost touch them. Lots of people on the boat had success with fishing. I... More

We had a great day at sea. Caught a lot of fish. Very helpful staff and crew. Great views in the water. Staff was great with explaining the types of fish and helping myself and family with bait and hauling in out catch. Would strongly recommend this excursion. Couldn't ask for a better crew. Thanks for a great day guys.

Anyone can take you fishing but the crew onboard the Gulfstream took us "catching". Nice boat, great crew and a lot of fish were caught. This was an outstanding value and a fantastic way to spend a day in Key West. I was asked if there was anything that they could do to improve our trip........nope, it was perfect.

I have fished on the Gulfstream every time I am in Key West. We always catch fish and more importantly have a great time. The crew will do whatever it takes to help you catch fish. The Captain pitches in whenever he can and the regulars will teach you a trick or two. I always meet nice people on the... More

GREAT day of fishing on the Gulfstream IV. Mate Ray & Captain Syx were the best. One person hooked onto a 8' Lemon Shark that Cap Syx had to take control of and made sure everybody got a good look at before cutting the line and releasing the shark. That was awesome to see!!! They made sure that inexperienced people... More
