Caribsea Charters

205 Nautilus Drive
Islamorada FL, United States

Fish the highly productive waters around Islamorada with Captain Kenny Spaulding, owner and operator of Caribsea Charters. This family company has been based in Islamorada since 1996. Capt. Kenny has fished all over the world but chose to run his business from Islamorada because of its stunning weather and the huge variety of different species that can all be caught in one day.

The Caribsea is a 44 foot sportfish that Capt. Kenny regularly restores and renovates in order to keep it nice, comfortable and exceptionally clean. The boat’s huge flybridge and tower make it a great platform for fishing for some of the most exciting species in the sea, while the large and roomy cockpit allows you to relax while the captain and mate guide you to fish. Twin 450 HP Cummins turbo engines fitted with the newest, quietest mufflers on the market give the boat the necessary power to get to the fishing grounds with ease.

The combination of the boat’s speed and the captain’s knowledge should ensure that your fishing experience is as good as it possibly can be. If the fishing is slow, Capt. Kenny doesn’t come home until the job is done. Frequent target fish include Mahi Mahi, Snappers, Cobia, Swordfish, Tuna, Sailfish and more. Kenny’s main goal is that the customer is happy, safe and ends up with plenty of fish to take home.

A 3rd generation fisherman, Capt. Kenny Spaulding is now training his son and first mate to carry on the family tradition of fishing from Key West. He has held a USCG license since 1990 and has three children, meaning he is exceptionally well versed in the art of teaching children how to get the most out of a fishing trip.
