Good Times Key West

If you’re looking for a charter to book a trip for your entire family, you should look for someone that can cater to both the avid angler and those just looking to relax under the sun. Luckily, you’ve found Good Times Key West, where you can get the “local” experience in the stunning waters of Key West.

Join Captain Justin Ferrell on board of his 24’ Sailfish. She’s a center console boat, with plenty of space for 6 anglers to move around while chasing the best bite. There’s a T-top to give you some shade, so you can take a break from reeling in keepers. If you want to enjoy the gorgeous crystal-clear waters, snorkeling equipment is available for everyone on board.

Capt. Justin is an avid angler and a skilled guide – your enjoyment is paramount to him, so all trips are customizable. He’ll take you fishing for Snappers, Groupers, Sharks, Barracuda, Lobster, and many more species. He can also take you to the some of the most beautiful beaches and mangroves around, where you can fire up the BBQ and listen to his incredible stories about local history. Whatever you want to do, talk to Capt. Justin and he’ll recommend the perfect combination for you.

All Sharks must be released when caught, though you should bring a waterproof camera to document your trophy catch.

Kids are more than welcome on board and there’s no minimum age. In fact, kids are preferred guests with Good Times Key West! Families looking to relax under the sun or enthusiastic anglers looking to top their personal bests, everyone is welcome with Good Times Key West!

Marine mechanic by trade, I needed to get out of the shop. That's when I started Good Times Key West. Everyday I now enjoy sharing the amazing activities, and scenery that the Florida Keys backcountry has to offer. Fishing, snorkeling, sandbars, dolphin viewing, and much more.
