Salt Adventures

Don’t have enough time to go fishing? Have plenty of time to go fishing? Whatever the case, a trip with Salt Adventures is the answer! Captain Jake Sjursen will put you on top of the bite in Key West, whether you have a few hours or several days of free time.

Capt. Jake invites you to join him for a fishing excursion in the waters of Florida on board his 33’ Twin Vee. She’s a catamaran, meaning there’s more than enough place on board for you and 5 other anglers; no bumping elbows or tangling lines here. The engines are a duo of 250 HP Suzukis and the boat can cruise at a maximum speed of 35 knots.

You’ll be able to focus on fishing fully on every trip with Salt Adventures without worrying about comfort. The boat is equipped with a full head bathroom and there’s plenty of shade. She’s extremely stable on the water, thanks to the 13’ beam and large tuna tower.

Whatever your angling tastes, Capt. Jake will accommodate you. If you’re aiming to fill your cooler with delicious fish you can hit the reefs and wrecks of the area for Mangrove, Yellowtail, and Mutton Snapper, as well as various Groupers.

Anglers aiming for a new personal best can hit the offshore waters on longer trips and target the pelagic predators that live there. Sailfish, Blue Marlin, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Tuna, and other species can all be targeted.

If you want to cool off between the strikes, the captain carries snorkeling equipment on all trips. Nothing beats fishing combined with snorkeling around reefs for a day on the water!

Surprise your family with a vacation or treat yourself to a fishing experience you’ll remember for a long time. Book a trip with Salt Adventures and start your adventure, today!
