When visiting the beautiful Florida Keys, take an adventure out to the deep blue water exploring the Atlantic together with Bad Boys Fishing Adventures. Starting out of Marathon, Florida, you’ll join Captain Linda Cristello on her comfortable and well-maintained boat fully equipped with top-of-the-line fishing gear ready to make your fishing day memorable. Come aboard and create wonderful memories in Marathon!

The boat you’ll be using is a 38’ Cabo express cruiser that can accommodate 6 guests. Thanks to its twin 715 HP Caterpillar engine and comprehensive navigation electronics, it will take you to the fish in no time. Its fishing gear includes outriggers and a livewell, and it features air-conditioning, a TV, multimedia system, as well as a refrigerator and an ice-box. The boat’s also got a flybridge, kitchen, toilet, and bed. There will be a first mate on board as well to give you any help you may need.

On your trip, you can target the prized Mahi Mahi, Blackfin Tuna, as well as Wahoo and you’ll catch them by deep sea fishing, trolling, and spinning. You can choose whether you’ll keep or release the fish you catch and you’re also free to bring children on your trip.

All you’ll need to bring is your food and beverages. Captain Linda will provide you with all the fishing gear, licenses, as well as bottled water. If you wish, she can even clean and fillet your catch for free.

Come visit Bad Boys Fishing Adventures and spend a wonderful time on the ocean!

Member since August 2019
Born and raised in Florida, Linda has been fishing all her life. About 20 years ago, thanks to her passion for the water that she grew up on, she decided to become a captain and give visitors to the area a chance to see just what it was that made her fall in love with the sea. The favorite part of her job is teaching people new to the sport how to catch fish and seeing them apply that knowledge right away.
