SeaSquared Charters

You can’t go wrong with SeaSquared Charters. This family-friendly company specializes in putting their clients and friends on top of the hottest bite in the Florida Keys. From battling Tuna and Sailfish offshore to exploring the reefs and wrecks or spending the day in the bay targeting Grouper, they can do it all.

Their ‘SeaSquared’ is a 28’ Parker center console with plenty of space for up to 6 anglers. It comes powered by twin 225 HP Suzuki engines and is fully rigged with everything you need for a successful day on the water, including electronics, gear, and professional accessories.

Check the bite while fishing the reefs, targeting Grouper, Mackerel, Amberjack, Cobia, Permit, Snapper, and other species. Take in all the beauty of the country’s only living coral reef!

Spend your day chasing Sailfish, one of the most sought-after game species in the Florida Keys. Explore the Florida Bay and the Gulf of Mexico, targeting Seatrout, Mahi Mahi, Tuna, Tarpon, and other species. And finally, venture up to 30 miles out for the likes of Wahoo, Tuna, and other deep sea fishing opportunities.

The trips with SeaSquared Charters are all-inclusive; you will only need to bring your own snacks and drinks.
