Fish Key West - The Coolwater

1801 N Roosevelt Blvd
Key West FL, United States

Fish Key West Florida utilizes a variety of different methods of fishing, depending on the time of year, the sea conditions, water and air temperature, currents and other factors. We fish anywhere from form 1 mile out for giant Tarpon to 90 miles out past the Dry Tortugas for a variety of exotic species; Sailfish, Mahi-mahi, Tuna, Sharks, Wahoo, Cobia, King Mackerel, Permit, Snapper and Grouper we catch them all.

The Coolwater is a member of the Fish Key West Florida fleet. It is a custom built center console fishing boat that was designed to fish the Key West style. It’s a 33’ SeaVee that is big and stable with a fish anywhere attitude. Coolwater is powered by twin 250 hp Yamaha four strokes. There is plenty of room for everyone to fish and tons of storage to keep your fish. The Coolwater is a natural when it comes to fishing. The smooth, dry ride gets anglers to and from the fishing grounds quickly and safely.

About the Captain

Damon Santelli
Key West, Florida, United States
Member since June 2014
Before becoming a full time charter captain, Damon Santelli was a commercial fisherman in Key West for 10 years. Making a living catching fish with rod and reel has given Damon experience which cannot be matched. He has caught Snapper and Grouper in the summer and spring, and then puts 1250 lbs of king fish in the boat almost every day throughout the winter months. Giving up a full time office position to pursue his passion of a life on the water has proven to be a great decision 15 years ago. Damon has great patience and a calm demeanor to help guide you to a great fishing trip for your family and friends. With many commercial fishing records such as 1232 lbs of yellow tail snapper caught in one day, Damon’s trip is not one to miss! Please come join Fish Key West Florida and Damon for a fishing trip of a lifetime.

We arrived on time for a morning trip but the forecast was for rough seas. Cpt Chris was very honest with my partner Judie & I about conditions we wud likely encounter(wind & possible 5 ft waves.) I thanked him for his honesty and told him we wud rebook for a later time!

Four of us booked a trip with Capt. Damon on line.  You know what is said - pay your money and take your chances…..  Well, Capt. Corey was assigned our trip and Damon shared with him what we were interested in - catch and eat fishing with everyone holding a rod - no trolling.  He listened to us and brought us to the reef for bottom fishing and yellow tail.  What a fantastic trip!  We all caught plenty of fish - a variety of species, landed a 35+/- amberjack and hooked into either a goliath grouper or some other leviathan that nearly spooled the reel once he realized he was hooked.  After plenty of laughs and action our Capt. suggested a quick troll for tuna as the bite was on.  Oh boy - how about four rods going off at the same time?!?!?  Bonita, keeper blackfin tuna.  We all had a fabulous time - go get em!
