Reel Xtreme Charters

26 Allamanda Avenue
Key West FL, United States

Reel Xtreme Charters provides adventurous fishing and snorkeling charters in the Key West, Florida. Run by Captain Eddie Gates, who’s fished these waters since he could walk, you will be taken to the best spots available. Take your pick from a relaxed cruise along the shores and admire the beautiful coastline, a snorkeling trip, or fish the amazing clear waters that stretch for miles and offer a wide variety of fish.

The Florida Keys have been known for decades to produce some of the mightiest fighters like Tarpon and the most delicious species like Snapper. You can fish the flats and the inshore waters for Barracuda, Groupers, Sharks, Jack Crevalle, Spotted Seatrout, Snook and Permit. Depending on the season, Captain Eddie will advise you which fish you can catch and he’ll show you the best techniques to do it.

You will fish aboard his 20 foot Back Country flats boat powered by a 250 HP Mercury engine, with a maximum cruising speed of 45 knots. The speedy vessel will take you to the productive grounds with comfort, and you’ll be able to use the boat’s wide bow for maneuvering with ease. The boat is equipped with all the safety equipment and electronics you’ll need for a successful and safe trip. Captain Eddie is also a firefighter so you know safety comes first to him!

Reel Xtreme Charters will provide you with the fishing gear, and you’ll use the onboard icebox to preserve the freshness of your catch until you return to the shore. You will also have cleaning and filleting at the end of your trip so you can take your catch home ready to be cooked into a lovely dinner. You will also have snorkeling equipment provided so you can relax and enjoy your day on the water with your friends and family.

Captain Eddie is a relaxed person who will give his best to make your trip a memorable one. Take your pick or do it all - fish, dive, hang out at an island and relax, or get some Lobster while in season - whatever you feel like doing!

About the Captain

Edward Gates
Key West, Florida, United States
Member since December 2016
Captain Eddie has been fishing in the Key West ever since he could walk. He is a born and raised Key West conch so he knows the waters very well. He is also a Key West firefighter, which means he basically has the two best jobs you can possibly think of. He got his captain's license as soon as he was legally able to at 18 and has been doing it ever since. So if you’re looking to get out on the water and have some fun he is your guy.
