Great boardwalk

What a wonderful place to just walk and look at all the cool boats. Tons of options for sunset cruises, snorkel trips, and fishing charters. Loads of restaurants with seafood options. We spent hours just walking around

Vibrant, Exciting Area
Jul 2019
This area is full of exciting, engaging attractions. We took the boat out for some dolphin watching and snorkeling. We weren't really impressed by the water we snorkeled in but the boat experience was excellent.

Captain Conch ( Worst Charter We Have Ever Taken)
Jan 2019 • Couples
There were six of us on the boat and only four poles. We had to take turns fishing. It was very frustrating to pay full price and not get to fish the whole time. I have never before been on a charter where there were not enough poles to go around. There were only two fish caught trolling which were not keepers. The captain decided to drop anchor and fish for yellow tail. There were only 11 small keepers and there were six of us on the split charter. I spent less than a half hour with a pole in my hand. The first 45 minutes of our trip was taken up by fueling the boat. We thought the time would be added on the end of the charter but it wasn't. They did offer to give us some fish that had been caught a few days before. I think they missed the point. I know I am not always going to catch fish but I like to go down swinging. In this case I didn't have a chance cause I didn't have a pole. Very frustrating when they insist on a 20% tip. I always thought a tip was optional and based on performance. I wish we had read all the bad reviews before we booked this boat.

Largest Fishing Fleet in the Florida Keys!
Apr 2017 • Friends
A true historic experience and Historic Charter Boat Row. Key West has recently been rocked by a Cat 4 Hurricane, Irma, yet the fleet is safe and sound! The fisherman have their boats all ready goand can help you catch the fish of your dreams! They are friendly and eager to share with you what is biting! It is clean and well kept and has full bathroom facility on site. I have fished with these guys many times and have always had great experiences! I even mounted my first Sailfish! (Don't worry, it was catch and release!) If you just mosey around the docks you will likely see some HUGE tarpon in the marina and maybe even a manatee!

Capt. Bob and 1st mate Ricky made our fishing trip a success. We caught King Mackerel and Bonita's. 3 couples and everyone caught at least a fish. Weather was gorgeous. Sunny and water was clear.Would enjoy going back out with them again.

Charter boat fleet

It was great fun to walk along the piers and view the boats all tied up and waiting for charters There even was an old World War 2 PT Boat there that would take you on a fast ride over the water for a fee. I found it to be a very interesting walk and an enjoyable experience talking to the boat owners.

Fished with Jolly Roger
Feb 2016 • Couples
We fished a four hour afternoon charter with Jolly Roger. Captain Joe was friendly early on and then disappeared to his upstairs cockpit and rarely heard from thereafter. 1st mate Stan was super friendly, helpful and personable. While we had an enjoyable and sunny afternoon trolling, we only had one keeper other than a bunch of Bonita that the boat kept for bait for another day. The boat can't control the fish, but it was not the best day for keeper results.

1/7/16 Fishing was horrible. Captain tried staying out longer only one big bite and I missed it. The boat is old, seats were soaked with water. What a waste of hard earned money. $200.00 for 6 hour the mandatory tip , with four other tourists like myself. We felt we went on a cruise, not a fishing adventure. I caught more fish at the dock then on the boat. We went from deep sea to bottom fishing due to nothing hitting, and even bottom fishing , only very small fish, maybe a total of 2 keepers and a few 4 inch fish. The captain and mate were a pleasure but that is about it. When I inquired about how the fish were running I was told it would be a great day. Yeh maybe for them to make money.

Captain Craig and Adam were great fun on our fishing trip. Great half day to experience fishing in ocean and bring home fresh fish to eat.
