Join High Seas Charters on an ultimate deep sea adventure, targeting offshore pelagics and reef-dwellers along Florida’s emerald Keys. With an expert guide like Captain Brian Vetter at the helm of your boat, you can always count on having a productive and fun day of fishing!

You’ll be led into battle aboard a 31’ Contender center console, powered by twin 225 HP Yamaha engines. She’s equipped with state-of-the-art navigational instruments, outriggers, a live bait tank, and high-quality fishing and safety gear. You can expect to use top-of-the-line Penn and Quantum tackle, as well as high-performance electric reels for deep water fishing.

Capt. Brian has a courtesy “No Fish, No Pay” policy for his customers. That’s how confident he is that he’ll put you on some of the finest fish Florida has to offer. Whether it’s deep dropping, bottom fishing, or trolling, you’re guaranteed to experience some pretty intense action.

Capt. Brian is an expert when it comes to reef and wreck fishing, and his record speaks for himself. He’s caught so many Grouper and Snapper species over the past years that he’s completely lost count. Nowadays he’s focused on passing his knowledge on to others and showing customers the best techniques that he’s picked up along the way.

He can also take you deep sea trolling for Mahi Mahi, Kingfish, Barracuda, and other fast swimmers that are sure to give you a run for your money. Other target species include Sailfish, Amberjack, Tilefish, and the list goes on. After all, you’ll be fishing in the Keys where the opportunities are as endless as the horizon!

High Seas Charters will take you on the chase of a lifetime and make sure your experience on board exceeds all expectations. Your fishing license is covered by the boat, so all you need to do is bring some snacks and drinks, sunscreen, sunglasses, and a hat. The final step is to click on that “Instant Book” button at the top of the listing and start counting down the days to paradise!

Captain Brian Vetter began fishing when he was a child and he hasn’t stopped since. He’s fished all over the world and mastered pretty much every type of fishing there is. He enjoys every aspect of the sport and when he moved to the Florida Keys in 2012, he fell in love with the area’s diverse fishing opportunities. He loves to target any fish that gives him a “reel” challenge, but what he enjoys the most is seeing the look of excitement on a customer’s face when they catch their first big saltwater fish! A day with High Seas Charters is a memory you definitely won’t forget. Book your trip today and meet Capt. Brian down in Key Largo for this once in a lifetime opportunity!
