Capt. Conch Charters – Capt. Conch

1801 North Roosevelt Boulevard
Key West FL, United States

Capt. Conch Charters have been in business since 1994. With crew members with over 30 years experience who were born and raised in Key West, this charter company will guide you through all the types of fishing that can be done in these bountiful waters.

It is very rare for Capt. Conch Charters to go out fishing and come back empty-handed. Fortunately for them, they consider themselves the jack of all trades of the fishing world and if one fish isn’t biting they can generally go and target one that is. Their versatility allows them to be one of the top fish producers in Key West.

The crew at Capt. Conch Charters do not only pride themselves on being expert fishermen, but also, most importantly, great entertainers. They cannot promise that you will catch hundreds of fish (who can?), but they can promise that they will put 110 percent into showing you a good time, imparting their great local knowledge and maybe even a few fishing tips as well.

You will be fishing aboard a roomy Key West built boat that features four fighting chairs, a dry salon area, a restroom, and an area up top where you can hang with the captain and listen to his fish stories - and yes, occasionally you will hear a true one!

Don’t worry if you don’t know a lot about fishing - Capt. Conch Charters are happy to cater for people who have never fished before. As long as you are good at drinking beer and relaxing, their experienced mate will handle all the complicated stuff.

Capt. Conch Charters do private charters and split charters, so if there is just one or two of you in the group and don’t mind making new friends and saving lots of money, maybe a split charter is what you are looking for.

Please come on down and allow them the opportunity to entertain you, not only with their expertise but also with their local knowledge of all things Key West.

I was born and raised in Key West, and started fishing with my grandfather at the tender age of 8 years old. My grandfather taught me how to fish, and instilled in me a great love and respect for the ocean. As I grew I knew that this is what I wanted to do with my life. As soon as I was able to shake my parents notion that one day I would head off to college, I began to fish in earnest. I started in the commercial industry trapping, diving, and hand lining. Though I enjoyed that life immensely I also enjoy showing people a good time, and showing off my craft. which led me into the charter boat industry. I went from first mate to owner of 4 charter boats at historical charterboat row. I have learned from the best in the industry, and have passed my knowledge onto my crews. I believe that all fishermen are show offs. They know that it is not easy to go fishing and actually catch fish, and that's what they do. Come on out and hang with our showoffs, I promise you will be entertained.
