Key West Water Sports invites you to take the family out for some Key West fishing in the peaceful inshore waters just minutes from the harbor! You will fish from a classic open boat that is very sturdy and safe but still gives that exciting feel of riding in and fishing from a small boat. It puts you closer to the water, where it is easy for kids and other beginners to haul in fish, and there are great views all around.
This is the perfect Key West charter fishing trip for family fishing on the calm waters near the island of Key West where seasickness is not a problem and the kids get a close-up view of the fish through the clear water. You can also arrange a small-group Key West touring charter for a fun boat ride that offers unique views of the shoreline, historic sites, and scenic spots of Key West. Even if you just want to join another group on a shared charter, a maximum of 14 passengers guarantees an enjoyable, personalized experience.
Key West light tackle fishing is famous for fast action on an amazing variety of species. The Keys are the place where salt water light tackle fishing was developed and refined to the thrilling sport it is today. With an expert captain and guide at the helm to take you to the right spots, you will haul in more fish than you ever thought possible as colorful swarms feed wildly on the chum slick. Yellowtail Snapper, Mangrove Snapper, Grunts, Barracuda, Sharks and more are all possible depending on the season and water conditions.
The kids love it when there is hardly any wait time between bites and they can see the fish dart at their bait just before the sensitive light rod bends nearly to the water. In fact, adults enjoy it quite a bit as well. The clear inshore waters, great views of the shoreline, harbor scenes, and passing boats make for an interesting and relaxing time on the water. And because the boat was originally made for transporting people and cargo between the shore and large ships, it has the small size and shallow draft needed to get around to neat places where other sportfishing boats can’t go.
These Key West fishing trips are a lot of fun for anyone, but are ideal for guests who are not experienced saltwater fisherpersons and might not be totally comfortable with long runs offshore. Our Key West Private Inshore Light Tackle Fishing Charter is a comfortable way to try out some Key West fishing. The inshore light tackle fishing boat is incredibly safe, built to the highest standards, and inspected regularly by the United States Coast Guard. With its wide-open sides and unobstructed views, it is very easy to fish from and also makes the perfect Key West touring vessel if you would just like to putt around some and maybe have a picnic lunch on the water.
Enjoy a classic old-school boat ride, listen to interesting stories from your expert local captain and crew, sip a complimentary cold beverage, and watch the kids have the time of their lives. You might even bring back a super-fresh fish dinner for one of the local restaurants to cook up for you. A Key West light tackle fishing trip is a great way to get out on the water, have some fun, and take home great memories and lots of pictures.
