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.

We had a great fishing experience. Jason put us on the fish immediately. We caught our limit of mangrove snapper in about 30 minutes. Then we went to deeper waters and pulled up mutton and lane snapper. It was an absolutely fantastic day.
