Cowboy Charters - Cowgirl

Make your vacation in the Florida Keys one to remember. Go sport fishing aboard the “Cowgirl”. The larger Hatteras sportfishing boat in Cowboy & Cowgirl Charters’ fleet, this is the right choice for those who like to combine style and comfort with the best sportfishing the Keys has to offer. Come aboard, put your feet up, and get ready to reel in a trophy.

At 45 feet, the luxurious Cowgirl has ample space for six passengers to spread out and relax on the water. Featuring a huge deck, a spacious flybridge, and a recently restored, comfortable interior with two heads, the boat will answer all your sport fishing demands. Fully air-conditioned, she comes rigged with performance-grade tackle and has a fighting chair on deck for the full sportfishing experience.

Cowboy & Cowgirl Charters are experts at fishing the Florida Keys. Charter with them, and you’ll mainly be trolling for reel-screaming pelagic species such as Mahi Mahi, Marlin, Sailfish, and Wahoo. If bottom fishing is more up your street though, they would be happy to guide you to the offshore reefs, wrecks, and ledges for huge and delicious bottom dwellers such as Groupers and Snappers. Whatever you want to target, Captain Mark and his crew will pull out all the stops to make it happen.

Everything you need to catch the fish of your dreams is included in the price - just bring some drinks and snacks and get ready for a comfortable, professional, and memorable day on the water. Cowboy & Cowgirl Charters has everything you need, so make the most of the Keys’ incredible fishing opportunities.
