Charter Boat Sea-Clusion

Charter Sea-Clusion Key West runs offshore fishing trips of a variety of lengths out of Key West, FL, targeting the huge range of bottom, reef, and pelagic species to be found in the area. Key West needs no introduction as a sportfishing location. This angler’s paradise of white sandy beaches and crystal clear waters offers some of the best fishing in the entire country, and has yielded more world record catches than anywhere else on the planet!

The boat you will be fishing aboard is a 46 ft Bertram sportfisherman powered by twin 430HP Detroit Diesel engines. Completely rebuilt in 2015, she can carry up to 6 guests in sumptuous luxury and comes with everything you will need for the perfect day on the water, including GPS, fishfinder, outriggers, downriggers, a livewell, and a fighting chair to help bring in those blue water beasts. The vessel also boasts a large flybridge, and a fully air-conditioned interior complete with a head and plenty of space to relax in the cool in between bites.

Charter Sea-Clusion Key West offers trips of a variety of lengths and start times in order to best provide that perfect ocean experience you are looking for - whether you want to spend a morning on the reef pulling in delicious Snapper, Grouper, and Mackerel with the family; go all out on a full day offshore extravaganza doing battle with huge Marlin, Sailfish, Tuna, and even Swordfish; or anything in between!

Captain Chuck Butler and his skilled first mate will work with you on every trip to make sure you get the very most out of your day on the water. You will be given a choice of light and heavy tackle, with the option to bottom fish, troll spin, jig, kite fish and more, and at the end of the day all your catch will be cleaned and filleted for you ready to take home and enjoy!
