One of our top picks in Key West. Captain Mark Baumgarten of Cowboy Charters has been guiding people to fish in the Florida Keys since 1995. These waters are famous worldwide for their unusually diverse game fishery, and with two fully equipped Hatteras boats at his disposal, he has an offshore fishing trip to suit every type of angler.
Cowboy is the smaller of the company’s two boats. A well-appointed 36 ft Hatteras sportfishing yacht, this fully air-conditioned vessel makes for a comfortable ride for groups of up to six people plus the crew. The boat features a head, as well as outriggers, downriggers, and a fighting chair for a professional and comfortable fishing experience. With a large deck area, everyone will be able to get involved in the offshore action.
Captain Mark has been fishing professionally for over 40 years, and he is well known for his ability to put his guests on fish, whatever their prior experience. He and his first mate will guide you across the offshore waters, providing all the know-how and equipment you need to catch species such as Mahi Mahi, Sailfish, Marlin, Wahoo, and many more. Cowboy and Cowgirl Charters’ trips usually involve a combination of trolling and bottom fishing, and you may be able to try kite fishing for Sailfish and other exciting pelagic fish when conditions allow.

Great captain - friendly and knowledgeable. Didn’t catch a lot of fish, but due to phenomenal weather and Florida’s Spring Break, every boat in Key West was out there.

Great time with the Captain and Firstmate. Big seas kept us close to the islands. They put us on sharks and reef fish all day.

Only complaint would be boat only went 10 mph so it took awhile to get out there
