Billy B Charter Services

Explore an absolute fishing paradise with Billy B Charter Services! The crystal-clear waters of the Florida Keys are bountiful year round and they’re a second home to your guide, Captain Billy. He’s been catching fish in the area his whole life and helped hundreds of people do the same. Whether you’re a seasoned pro or you’re just getting accustomed to this sport, you’re welcome to join.

It all starts on a 24’ Ranger boat that accommodates up to 6 guests. This bay boat is powered by a 300 HP Yamaha engine and also features a remote trolling motor. Besides navigational electronics and safety gear, the boat also has dry storage for personal belongings and a cooler for your food and drinks.

The only decision you need to make is which trip to take. There are specialized trips that target only one species, such as Tarpon, which is a great option if you’re ready to handle a hard fight. If you’re here for the excitement, take a Shark trip instead. For anglers who value precision and patience above all, fly fishing trips are just what you need. Some of the species you can go after are Snook, Redfish, Trout, Snapper, Mackerel, and many more.

All you need to do is pack some snacks and drinks and be at the dock on time. Everything else is covered by the captain - your fishing licenses, rods, reels, lures, and even catch cleaning service. If you have any questions, feel free to get in touch with the captain in advance.

Captain Billy started fishing in the bass ponds of Maryland when he was a kid. It was his favorite thing to do! He fully dedicated himself to this sport when he moved to Palm Beach County, where he fished competitively both inshore and offshore. Fishing the Florida waters for almost 3 decades got him the experience and knowledge not a lot of captains have.
