Good Times Key West welcomes you to Florida. Join Captain Justin Ferrel in Key West as he takes you to the area’s best inshore and nearshore fishing spots. As you’ll often catch fish within 10 minutes from departure, you’re bound to have more “line time” than with any other charter. The Key West Harbor is full of life that most boats cruise right over every day. Being nearshore also offers you a leeward side of the island to fish, making conditions calm and enjoyable for guests of all ages and experience levels.

You’ll use a restored 19’ Twin Vee catamaran boat, perfect for a small group of up to 4 guests looking to wet a line or just see the sights around Key West. The boat’s powered by a 140 HP Suzuki four stroke engine with a maximum speed of 21 knots and it uses all the quality technology for navigation, including GPS, fishfinder, and radio. You can use the onboard snorkeling equipment as well.

Using light tackle, you and the captain can have great time bottom fishing, trolling, and drift fishing. There will be some lovely species for you to chase, including various types of Snapper, Great Barracuda, and Lemon Shark. If you opt for keeping the fish you catch, the marina’s cafe offers to cook it for you. The children are more than welcome to join the trip, so be free to bring them along and have a wonderful family time in nature.

Captain Justin supplies you with rods, reels, tackle, and lures. He’ll also clean and fillet your catch free of charge and cover you for fishing licenses. For the trip, coolers with ice and bottled waters will be provided, you’ll just need to bring your favorite food and drinks.

Good Times Key West awaits you for a fishing adventure!

A marine mechanic by trade, the captain needed to get out of the shop. That's when he started Good Times Key West. Every day now he enjoys sharing the amazing activities and scenery that the Florida Keys backcountry has to offer. Fishing, snorkeling, sandbars, dolphin viewing, and much more.
