Green Eyed Girl Charters

Book a trip with Green Eyed Girl Charters and enjoy a family-friendly, light tackle, reef, and offshore fishing in the fabulous Florida keys! Come fish with Capt. Ron Varona aboard his classic,  restored Sea Vee, the Green Eyed Girl. With over 30 years of experience fishing the upper Keys, Capt. Ron will share his knowledge and passion for fishing, with you and your family.

Come spend a day fishing the reef, wrecks, and offshore waters from Key Largo to Islamorada chasing a variety of species. Whether you want to catch and release Sailfish or catch Snapper, Grouper, or Mahi Mahi for dinner; the captain will do his best to give the best shot at your target and make your day a memorable one.

The Green Eyed Girl is a 25’ Sea Vee, restored as recently as 2019 and powered by a 250 HP Yanmar engine. The vessel’s max capacity is 4 anglers, excluding crew and all of the guests are able to fish comfortably at the same time. Featuring all the necessary safety equipment, fishing gear, and electronic systems, the boat has everything you could need for a safe and productive day on the water.

You’ll be provided with all the things you need to fish, including top-notch custom rods and Daiwa reels, daily fishing licenses, artificial lures, and live bait. Live bait will typically be caught at the beginning of the trip and is always included in the price. You’ll also be able to try your hand at a wide variety of fishing techniques, including kite fishing – if the weather allows for it.

The things you should pack for the trip are food, drinks, a cooler for your catch, sunscreen, and sunglasses. If you have this short checklist taken care of, take a look at the captain’s calendar, find an opening that works for you and meet Green Eyed Girl Charters on the water!

About the Captain

ID & License verified
9 Customer reviews
Response time 8 hours
Member since March 2015
Born and raised in South Florida, the fishing bug struck Capt. Ron at a very early age. His family spent summers and weekends fishing and boating in the upper Keys and that’s where his obsession grew. While in college he began mating on private and local charter boats in the Miami area. His travels took him to the Bahamas, Hawaii, and Costa Rica. After achieving his goal of a career in the fire service, he still craved to be on the water as much as he could. In 2003 he started Green Eyed Girl Charters, and began a journey of making life long friends and memories in the Florida Keys.
