Off Course Charters

The inshore waters of the Florida Keys is home to some of the best fishing that money can buy. Captain Henry specializes in inshore and backcountry fishing trips in Florida Bay and the Everglades National Park. Having no experience in fishing is not a problem at all. Captain Henry is eager to teach you and help have a wonderful time on the water.

You’ll be on a 22’ Wellcraft bay boat powered by a 200 HP Yamaha engine. The boat has plenty of room for up to 4 guests and is rigged with all the necessary navigation, fishfinders, and radio systems. It features a trolling motor, an ice box, as well as a livewell. Most importantly, the boat has a completely private bathroom/changing room!

Captain Henry will take you to the best fishing spots available and help you catch Snook, Snapper, Jack Crevalle, Tripletail, Speckled Trout, and other fish. You can keep and take home some of the fish you catch, however, to conserve our fishing for future generations, captain Henry only allows enough fish to be taken for a meal for one day . The captain likes his guests to enjoy the sea and clean air to the fullest, so there’ll be no room for cigarettes or alcohol on the boat. Kids of all ages are welcome to join in.

You’ll have the necessary gear waiting for you on board, including rods, reels, lures, and bait. At the end of the trip, Captain Henry will clean and pack your catch free of charge. No Snook or Red allowed. Fishing licenses and water are also provided for you, so just pack some food and you’re set to go.

All visitors to the Everglades National Park need to buy an Entry Pass prior to entry into the park. The cost is $35 and covers everyone onboard. These passes can be bought online. It’s best to buy the pass on the day of the trip just in case it gets canceled due to bad weather. When you buy the pass online via your smartphone, you will get an electronic copy which will suffice for the Park officials.

Come to Key Largo and have a relaxing and fun day on the water

The Angler's Choice Award is given to listings that consistently deliver a high-quality service and earn great reviews from customers.
Fishing has always been a part of Captain Henry's life one way or the other. He has fished in the waters of the Amazon, Belize, South Africa, Mozambique, and, of course, the Florida Bay. There is hardly anything more blissful than sitting on a boat with friends and catching fish. He knew he had to share this experience with people and that's why he became a Master Captain.
