The Trip - Reef & Wreck Fishing

Whether you're looking to fill your cooler with delicious, fresh fish or to spend time on the water with your family, Reef Fishing in Florida is the perfect pastime. And there’s no better place to do it than the Florida Keys, home to North America’s only coral barrier reef. 


You can expect to catch a wide range of fish during one of our short charters! While this may vary throughout the seasons, we often catch:



  • Yellowtail Snapper
  • Mangrove Snapper
  • Mutton Snapper
  • Land Snapper
  • Grouper “seasonal”
  • Barracuda
  • Sharks
  • Jacks
  • Mackerel.


Set sail on one of our reef fishing charters. Firstly, Florida Keys is one of the best spots for this activity - home to stunning views and more than 6,000 species of marine life. This means that you’ll find a catch worth bragging about! 

Our private charters are tailored around YOU - which means they can be as hands-on or as hands-free as you’d like. As a result, we’re a great companion for experienced fishermen, alongside families and beginners.

In fact, this is one of the best ways for novices to develop vital fishing skills - especially as we’re always on hand to provide you with assistance, answer questions or even help you reel in a treat. 

Our Reef trips produce tons of action on lighter tackle, giving you plenty of opportunity to fill up your cooler!


The Experience

Beyond catching some great fish, we work hard to ensure that our guests always have a great time with us. In comparison to other charters, reef trips are shorter as we don’t go out as far.

This means you’re likely to experience shorter runs and calmer seas - great for those who may be worried about the dreaded sea-sickness.


While fishing with us here in Marathon, FL you will notice instantly that we run a clean, professional, and very friendly operation. While fishing with us you can be as hands-on or hands-off as you would like. We enjoy letting our customers cast and hook their own fish, but we have no problem hooking them for you if you’d like!


We pride ourselves in using all top-of-the-line tackle and keeping everything in perfect condition. Whether looking for a relaxing day of family fishing on the reef or chasing trophy fish offshore we will make sure to meet your request!


Our job is to catch you fish and that is what we do best! We will not sit in one spot and say sorry the fish just aren’t biting today. We will work hard and burn fuel to make sure your day is successful. While on board you can play your own music on our Bluetooth stereo, kick back, unwind, and witness the beautiful and amazing fishing the Florida Keys waters have to offer.

This boat is rigged for some serious tournament fishing!


Safety is always our goal! On board we will always have life jackets for adults kids, E-pirb, Satellite phone, First Aid Supplies, Flares, Fire Extinguishers, and all required Coast Guard specifications.
