Hook’dLīf Charters – Key’d Up

Hook’dLīf Charters is here to give you a day of great fish and amazing memories in the waters around Islamorada. Helmed by Captain Kenly “Ketti” Turchetti, each trip will take you to the best waters for your target species while letting you enjoy the incredible scenery of the Florida Keys.

Capt. Ketti runs her trips aboard the “Key’d Up,” a 38’ Blackfin sportfishing boat built right here in the Sunshine State. This luxurious vessel was specifically designed to make the most of Florida’s awesome angling. It has plenty of room for 6 guests and cruises at high speeds thanks to her twin Yanmar engines, which kick out over 800 HP between them.

The boat has everything you need for the perfect day on the water. Its high flybridge lets you take in the view in style while the air-conditioned interior and full, enclosed bathroom make even long trips offshore comfortable. There’s also a galley where you can stow and prepare any food you bring along.

This is much more than a pleasure cruiser, though. The vessel was built for a life of big hookups on the high seas. It has GPS and fishfinder to track down your target species, outriggers and a kite for that signature South Florida spread. The spacious cockpit also lets everyone enjoy the action to the full.

There’s plenty of action to enjoy. Depending on the trip, you could be going after anything from Yellowtail Snapper and Tripletail to Yellowfin Tuna and Sailfish. Capt. Ketti runs special early evening Shark trips for a fun family day and extended Swordfishing charters to put even the most seasoned sportfisher to the test. She does it all!

Everything you need for the fishing itself is ready and waiting aboard. So pack your lunch, your camera, and your biggest cooler and jump aboard for a day of adventure!

Join Hook’dLīf Charters and spend the day in these beautiful waters under the Floridian sun reeling in some big fish!
