Island Time Explorer

Overseas Highway
Islamorada FL, United States

Florida is known as one of the world’s premier fishing spots, for good reason. It’s blessed with great saltwater fishing, both offshore and inshore. Island Time Explorer invites you aboard to take full advantage of that fact.

Come aboard their 24’ Yellowfin, powered by a 300 HP Mercury Verado engine. That engine gives her enough oomph to go up to 55 knots when cruising. She’s fully equipped to make your fishing trip as easy as possible, live bait wells are available onboard. A wireless trolling motor is also installed. A state-of-the-art navigation system and fishfinder are present onboard as well, making sure you can easily find the hottest fishing spots.

The species targeted by this charter are varied, ranging from Tarpon, Snook, Barracuda, Bonefish, and Redfish, all the way to various Sharks, Permit, Snappers, and others. The techniques used are also as diverse as the species, you will get the chance to try fly fishing, light tackle, bottom fishing, and spinning. Live bait is provided by the charter, fished before or during the trip, depending on availability.

There is no minimum age for children and Captain Jeff welcomes them aboard. Capt. Jeff is an expert in teaching new anglers the tricks of the trade and getting them hooked while they’re young. Fishing licenses are included in the trip price. Catch cleaning is free of charge as well.
