Islamorada’s Top Spearfishing Charter!
Nothing beats freshly caught fish in the Florida Keys, except maybe a story to go with it! Our spearfishing charters offer you the best spearfishing experience you will find in Islamorada!
Spearfishing, when done correctly, is the most sustainable way to harvest fish. We offer spearfishing to all experience levels of both free divers and scuba divers. There are many regulations and limitations that are involved with spearfishing in the Florida Keys, for that reason we will always include an experienced guide with your charter. No need to worry about a fishing license, your covered when spearfishing off our boats.
Diver safety and the safety of the marine life we visit is our number one priority on all of our spearfishing charters. For this reason you will always be accompanied by one of our experienced guides, included in your charter price. Our private charters offer you the very best spearfishing in the upper Florida Keys!
