Cowboy Charters - Cowboy
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.

Totally awesome. We wanted to start out earlier than eight a.m. and BOOM…we agreed to a 6:30 a.m. start. We arrived at 6:35 and off we went. REALLY! They we’re ready to go…no waiting, no delays. Michelle (wife of Mark who is the owner and captain) is the nicest and very informative. She never made us feel it was all about the money, very easy transaction. Although there were never any guarantees to catch fish, there was a guarantee that Captain Mark and first hand John would do all they could to give us the best chances. These two are locals (conchs) and have been in the business for forever. Within 45 minutes I reeled in a large Black fin tuna which was between 15 & 20 lbs!! WOW what fun. The day was beautiful but a little windy. We got a number of hits from mackerel (we think) and we listened to the chatter on the radios which indicated others were not having luck. Just when Nick and I thought we were coming back with one Black fin tuna,. A huge hit occurred and OMG Nick landed a sailfish (about 70-75 lbs). BEAUTIFUL and injury free and set free at the boat. MARK and JOHN worked hard and it was all for our beneficial experience. We highly recommend COWBOY COWGIRL Charters in Key West. You will have the best charter experience because of the knowledge, expertice and “customer first” attitude of the entire team. THANK YOU MARK, MICHELLE AND JOHN and your Charter Boats!

Equipamentos otimos. Equipe ótima. Fiz uma pescaria dividida com outras pessoas. Infelizmente pegamos apenas 4 peixes. Mas pescaria é isso mesmo. Parabéns a equipe pelo profissionalismo.
