Key Largo, FL provides access to incredible fishing grounds: the calm, picturesque shallows of Everglades National Park, famous reefs and wrecks, and the deep waters of the Atlantic. Who could be better equipped to help you explore them than a local fishing fanatic? Born and raised in the keys, Captain Eric has a lifetime of experience to share with you. Hop aboard Southern Seas Fish Company for an authentic Floridian adventure!

Capt. Eric offers private fishing charters out of the beautiful Florida Keys. He caters to all levels of anglers meaning that both novice and professional fishermen are encouraged to join him and explore these waters. Children over the age of 4 are welcome aboard, too! Whether you want to battle big game offshore or relax on a calm inshore adventure, he’s got you covered.

You’ll be casting your line from your captain’s 24’ Intrepid center console. She’s built to provide a secure and comfortable journey across a variety of waters and is decked out with the safety and navigational gear to prove it! She can accommodate up to 4 anglers, and you’ll all be able to fish at the same time. Why not indulge in some friendly competition?

Depending on where you want to fish, your target species will vary – but you’ll be greeted by an impressive cast of characters no matter where you cast your line. Inshore, you’ll target the likes of Snook and Tarpon. Heading to the wrecks and reefs? Tasty Snapper species and feisty Barracuda await you. Willing to make the 15–30-minute journey offshore? You’ll be rewarded with the chance to battle Mahi Mahi, Sailfish, Wahoo, and Tuna.

Your captain will make sure you’re decked out with top-quality rods and reels, lures, bait, tackle, and a fishing license. He’ll also clean and fillet your catch for you, too, so you can take home part of your adventure. All that’s left is to cast off with Southern Seas Fish Company and experience Floridian-style fishing the local way!
