Overview
More
Professional sport fishing charter on the waters around Key West Florida. Offshore, inshore, Gulf of Mexico, Shark, Reef and Wrecks. Southbound believes on allowing customers to be as "hands on" as possible. Taking people fishing is a lot of fun,but teaching people how to fish is even more fun. We like to cater our trips to the experience and desires of our customers. If it's fun for you, it's fun for us. The Southbound is a large comfortable platform to fish from with plenty of room for groups of up to 6. Come join us for a great day on the tropical waters of Key West and the Carribbean!
