Second Nature Charters

100% guarantee fish or money back!!!!Key West has a fish with your name on it, so let Second Nature Charters help you catch it! With Captain Zane at the helm, you’ll benefit from years of knowledge and experience!!

These waters are known for Mutton Snapper, Cobia, Great Barracuda, Mahi Mahi, Swordfish, Amberjack, Bull Shark, Gag Grouper, Black Grouper, Goliath Grouper, Blue Marlin, Yellowtail Snapper, and more – with any luck, it won’t take long to hook into some. During the trip you might be light tackle fishing, trolling, drifting, jigging, bottom fishing, or maybe something more specialized in this area.

Your Captains run a 37’ Torres offshore sport fishing vessel that can carry up to 6 passengers. It comes with downriggers, a fighting chair, and everything else you need for a productive day on the water. There’s a toilet on board for your convenience. The charter will provide rods and reels for you. Live bait is available, but be sure to ask about it so you know if you’ll be catching it yourself.

There will be a First Mate on board to help your trip run smoothly. It’s customary to tip the Mate 10–20% to show your appreciation.

The charter boat covers your fishing license, so all you have to do is show up ready for a good time! Be mindful that some species may have special rules or limited seasons. Simply ask and your captain can tell you more. It’s never a bad idea to bring sunglasses, and sunscreen (non-spray). Drinks are included, free of charge. Alcohol is allowed in moderation, so long as you avoid hard liquor as well as glass bottles.

And that’s it! Your fishing trip with Second Nature Charters is just a click away.
