For the cost of a single person share of the full boat charter, you can go out and fish the waters made famous by the exploits of legendary big game fishermen like Zane Grey and Ernest Hemingway. These American authors put Key West on the map in the early 1900s with their exciting tales about pursuing and fighting giant Blue Marlin weighing up to 1,000lbs., massive Yellowfin Tuna, and other sportfish in the waters between Key West and Cuba.
Huge Blue Marlin are still found hunting the deep banks offshore from Key West, and cruising the surface during seasons when big schools of baitfish are on the move. Sailfish, colorful Mahi-Mahi, Blackfin Tuna, Sharks, and many more species search for prey out on fishing grounds that are world-famous for excellent multi-species sportfishing action. Unfortunately, rising fuel prices and generally high operating costs nowadays have driven Key West private fishing charter fees to levels that are beyond the reach of many fishermen who would love to check some Key West offshore fishing off their bucket list.
Fish Key West has a solution: the Key West Split Fishing Charter. On a split charter trip, the standard daily cost of the charter boat fishing trip is split between several unrelated groups or individuals. For example, a Key West charter captain may have only 4 people booked on a boat that can accommodate 6 fishermen. If you and a companion would like to go fishing, the captain may be able to let you take the remaining 2 spots on board for the cost of 2 shares of the charter fee.
This is what Key West charter fishing captains refer to as a split charter. It's a cost-effective and convenient strategy for folks who want to go out fishing. A split charter gives anglers the chance to enjoy the greatest sport in the world with new-found friends. And split charters are also very helpful for supporting our local fishing boat captains.
