Fish Key West invites you to take the family fishing or grab a group of friends and take advantage of a great value on the best Key West party boat fishing in the harbor. A Charter Boat Row tradition since the days of sail more than a century past, this fun brand of fishing is also known as Key West head boat fishing because fishermen are charged individually “by the head”—a much cheaper way to go fishing than paying to charter a typical smaller sportfishing boat. But it is still a very exciting way to fish as people line the rails and pull in a variety of interesting catches!
- Awesome Key West fishing fun at a great price
- Perfect way to take the family fishing in Key West
- Quality fishing tackle, bait & license included
- Expert captain, friendly crew & Coast Guard-inspected vessel
- Clean restrooms for your comfort
- Excellent Fish Key West sportfishing value for the price
You simply cannot beat a Fish Key West Party Head Boat Fishing Charter for fun and fishing value for the price. Large party boats operate out of most fishing harbors up and down the East and West coasts, but being able to go out in Key West waters, home to some of the world’s best gamefishing, for the price of a party boat trip is an unbelievable deal. And while these spacious vessels can sometimes carry up to 100 fishermen, our Key West party boat fishing trips are limited to a 65-passenger maximum. Given the size of the boat, that leaves plenty of room to handle your gear and haul in fish.
There is no better way to let kids and beginners get their lines wet. In fact, experienced head boat fishermen know that it is usually the little kid or a lady fishing for her first time that hooks up with the fish of the day! Expert fishermen also have a lot of fun on a party boat trip because it is just plain entertaining to see all the different catches coming in. And after all, any fishing trip is better than a day at work. Your expert captain will work to find the right spot for the season and the day’s weather conditions and try to keep the ride smooth while staying over the fish. Friendly crew members are always at hand to help with bait, unhooking fish, and untangling lines when needed.
The nearshore waters of Key West are well-known for hot multi-species fishing action, and that is just what Fish Key West party boat fishing is all about. Grunts, juvenile Groupers, Mangrove Snappers, Barracuda large and small, and even Sharks at times. You never know what will be biting depending on the season and the spots picked out by the captain. It is rare not to bring at least a couple fish home for the pan, and sometimes things get crazy and everyone reels in to watch an unexpected hookup with some monster of the deep.
Even though the price for a Fish Key West party boat fishing charter is so low, the boat is equipped with all the modern fish-finding electronics found on sportfishing boats that charge more than 10 times as much for a half-day on the water. If the fish are there, the captain will find them. And you will fish with top-of-the-line gear. Key West charter fishing captains do not go out with junk tackle, and all end rigs, bait, and lures if needed are included. But experienced anglers are also welcome to bring their own favorite rod and reel if desired.
Party boats are big and broad of beam, offering an unusually stable ride if sea conditions get a bit sporty, and all party boats undergo required twice-yearly Coast Guard safety inspections. Clean restrooms and sheltered seating areas to take a rest in keep the trip comfortable. Multiple daily trip slots make it easy to fit some fishing into your Key West itinerary, and if the bite is hot, this style of fishing comes at such a reasonable price that you can go out again.
Fish Key West is happy to be able to offer both new fisherpeople and our guests who have enjoyed great times on Fish Key West charters in the past this excellent chance to get out and fish Key West for about what 2 people will pay for lunch nowadays. Don’t miss out because spots on deck fill up quickly, especially during busy times of the year when special events are in town. Come aboard a Key West party boat fishing charter and fish Key West!
