Perseverance Charters takes you to Key Largo, a unique fishing destination with some of the richest fishing grounds in Florida. It offers inshore, nearshore, flats, and the backcountry fishing trips. Captain Rick Barry will pick you up and drop you off at your desired location. He’ll do his best to make you land a great catch and have plenty of fun on the water.

Your trip will start on a restored 18’ Dolphin flats boat powered by a 150 HP Yamaha engine. It can sit up to three guests and has the necessary navigation technology to quickly take you to the fish. The boat’s equipped with an ice-box and a livewell, and you’ll have access to snorkeling and spearfishing gear.

There will be a big selection of fish for you to chase. Some of it include Permit, Snapper, Bonefish, Jack Crevalle, Snook, and Tripletail. You’ll be using light tackle, and will have the chance to try out spinning. You can keep all the fish you catch, or, if you prefer, you can return in back to the water. The captain loves having kids on his boat, so don’t hesitate to take your whole family aboard.

No need to worry about the fishing equipment because Perseverance Charters has you covered for all the tackle, plus lures and live bait. Fishing licenses will also be provided. There will be water on board, so if you’d like some other drinks, as well as food, make sure you pack them.

Book a trip at Perseverance Charters and experience Florida’s lovely nature.
