Enjoy the pristine waters of Key West and the outer island chains with Outta Line Charters. You’ll get to experience a range of incredible fishing, from inshore to offshore and across the reefs – the Keys really have it all.

Captain Armani Garcia is a 7th generation native of Key West, and so was born into a long line of fishermen. Having grown up on the water, he knows everything needed for a successful and enjoyable fishing trip. He can’t wait to show you his old stomping grounds and giving you a true local experience.

The 21’ Contender center console was specifically designed to cover the range of fishing grounds the Keys have to offer. With space for up to 3 guests, you’ll whizz offshore thanks to the 250 HP Yamaha engine, while she’s also sturdy enough to stay afloat in the skinny waters.

Sodas and water are provided, and you can keep your snacks on board in Capt. Armani’s cooler. Just let him know to bring his grill and you’ll have the chance to cook up your catch on board or on the beach to break up a perfect day.

Running trips from 2 to 12 hours, Outta Line Charters gives you everything the Keys can offer. Peruse the shallow inshore and target some tough-fighting game fish such as Tarpon and Barracuda. Hit the incredible reefs that make up the Keys and go after stunning Snappers and tasty Groupers. While the longest trip will take you to the Marquesas in search of even bigger fish!

Experience the Keys in true local fashion with Outta Line Charters. You’re in for a personalized, professional, and thoroughly entertaining time aboard thanks to Capt. Armani. There’s nothing more you could want out of a trip to the Keys, so make the most of it today.

Born and raised in Key West, Captain Armani has had a rod in his hand before he could walk. Fishing is part of the culture down here, he's spent his whole life on the water. This passion drove him to getting his captain's license, pursuing a career in guided fishing charters. Fishing never gets old for him, and taking clients out on the waters he grew up on is what truly makes him happy. Being able to give them an unforgettable experience is what he strives for.
