Boa Vida Charters welcomes you to Key West, Florida and offers various adventures on the water. A seasoned veteran, Captain Maryann Marinho shares her lifelong passion for fishing with others and, together with her first mate Sean Williams, is eager to show you how exciting fishing in the beautiful southern waters can be.

Boa Vida Charters continues to provide great fishing service to its guests, this time aboard the company’s second boat. Come join a team of cordial anglers with lots of experience under their belts and have a memorable day fishing the waters around Key West, Florida. Whether you go inshore or offshore, Boa Vida Charters will make sure you catch fish and have the best time possible. Pick a day that suits you and embark on your next fishing adventure!

Your ride will be a freshly restored 30’ Seavee center console powered by twin 175 HP Suzuki engines, with enough room for up to 6 people. The reliable navigation system makes hunting safe and efficient. There’ll be an onboard ice-box to keep drinks cool. The boat’s amenities also include a livewell, snorkeling equipment, and tuna tubes.

A wide choice of fishing areas awaits you – inshore, nearshore, offshore, as well as reefs, wrecks, and the backcountry. There’s also a great number of species you’ll target. From Snapper and Grouper to Sailfish and Wahoo, an even Shark. Using both light and heavy tackle, you’ll be bottom fishing, deep sea fishing, trolling, spinning, jigging, and popping. Bring some kids to and show them what life on the water looks like. Maybe they’ll become anglers themselves someday. You’re free to keep whatever you catch. In that case, Captain Maryann will clean and fillet you fish so you can easily prepare it at home.

Boa Vida Charters covers you for all the gear. Tackle, rods, and reels are included in the price, and so are live bait and lures. They even have fishing licenses, so the only thing you may need are snacks and drinks.
