Laid Back Key West Charters

Laid Back Key West Charters offers private fishing trips that can be fully customized to fit your specific needs. Create a package deal so that you can do exactly what you want without having to rush and follow the schedule. Instead of having to choose one type of charters, let Captain Eric Grancourt introduce you to the wonderful world of the outdoors!

Bring your family with you to enjoy an experience that you will remember for months to come without limiting your free time on the water. Check the bite and hone your angling skills. Try a little bit of everything – watch dolphins passing by, take a dip in the morning waters, try your hand at light tackle fishing, and hang out on a secluded beach or sandbar.

From fishing and spearfishing to snorkeling and island hopping, Laid Back Key West Charters can do it all. Captain Eric’s main goal is to help you achieve your ideal aquatic day and create memories that will last a lifetime.

Your trip will take place on his 27’ World Cat catamaran. This vessel has enough room for up to 6 anglers and comes powered by twin 300 HP Mercury engines. It is fully outfitted with everything you need for an eventful day on the water, chasing Cobia, Mahi Mahi, Snapper, Grouper, Hogfish, and many more.

All rods, reels, tackle, live bait, and bottled water will be available on board. All you have to do is choose which trip suits you best and hop on board!

About the Captain

Eric Grandcourt
Key West, Florida, United States
Member since May 2014
3
Verified badge
Captain Eric Grancourt’s journey began in Colorado many moons ago. Having explored the Rocky Mountains and the mile high city of Denver and Boulder, Eric found a renewing warmth in Key West. The cold winters spent hiking and snowboarding lost their appeal, and he traded his Colorado office suits in for wetsuits. Eric dove into the world of open waters, sea turtles, and schools of bottlenose dolphin. He worked as a divemaster and later became a captain for Captain’s Corner Dive Shop. In the winter of 2011, Eric purchased his own boat – the rest is history.
