Owner description: Key West and the Florida Keys are well known as the fishing capital of the world and holds more world records than anywhere else. We have been charter fishing the waters off of the lower Florida Keys since 1965 and have been the winners of many fishing tournaments. Fishing is a family tradition for the Baumgarten family. Hans Baumgarten started Cowboy Charters in 1965 and his son and grandson have carried on and expanded the family tradtion. You will experiencea both friendly and professional crew on the well appointed 36 FT & 45 ft Hatteras yachts" with twin diesels, when you join Mark Baumgarten and crew for a day of sport fishing. Mark has been fishing professionally for over 40 years and has been consistanly able to find that trophy fish for his customers.

Took my wife and 3 kids shark fishing in Key West last week. Our captain "sharky" was great with our kids. We caught several sharks including a huge Lemon Shark. I would highly recommend Cowboy Charters in Key West. They even picked us up at the resort and delivered us back as well. Next time we go to Key West we will be using their service again. Thanks Sharky!

Highly recommend this charter boat. Can't beat the rates and the hospitality. We had a bachelor party on this boat, great time. Sharky (Mark) was very knowledgeable and a pleasant to be around, very accommodating, picked us all up at the house and dropped us back off. Michelle, what a saint!!! We caught Tuna and Mahi throughout the day. We will be using these guys again for sure!!! Thank you so much!

We had a great time with Cowboy Charters. The weather was perfect. We caught a few fish, nothing really big but it was fun. I would recommend this as a fun couples, family or friends thing to do. Not great for anyone that has any tendency to have motion sickness.

Wow that was fun. Fishing charters are not cheap but when you see how much goes into them it's a lot of value for the money. Captain Eddie and Lucky were awesome hosts and took great care of us newbies. Me, my wife and our three girls (24,15,11) had wonderful time and we caught way more fish than we could eat.
