Key West, United States

Background
Marine mechanic by trade, I needed to get out of the shop. That's when I started Good Times Key West. Everyday I now enjoy sharing the amazing activities, and scenery that the Florida Keys backcountry has to offer. Fishing, snorkeling, sandbars, dolphin viewing, and much more.
Techniques
Set tunes, set anchor, set chum. Light tackle rods off the stern for snapper, Big poles up on top rocket launchers with live baits. catch some table fare, and scream some drag. Or pull up the beach and let the wife and kids play, while you walk the beach sight casting to fish in the shallows. Happy family + happy fisherman = Good Times Key West. Other activities include snorkeling, dolphin watching, sunset trips, and my personal favorite remote island/ sandbar sessions.

Went fishing on Saturday, April 7, 2018

It was a bit of a slow day of fishing but we were able to do and see some great things. Ended the day with a good amount of Mangrove Snapper and got in a little bit of snorkeling and checked out some beautiful islands and captain Justin grilled some burgers and brats while we explored one of the island beaches. Ended up being the best part of the vacation and we would book with Captain Justin again.

This trip was a christmas present for my husband (which I enjoyed very much myself too). We spent amazing morning fishing, snorkling and most of all enjoying beautiful scenery, weather and boat. Justin took very good care of us and was very helpful planning the perfect day for us. If you have a chance to book this trip, do it - at least for us it was a day that we will remember rest of our lives. Thank You Justin!

Thanks for joining, I also enjoyed our three hour trip, despite the high winds and rain I’m happy we could still catch some mutton and mangrove snapper.

Justin is a great captain! Made everyone feel welcome and comfortable. We were able to catch grouper, snapper and even a few sharks! We had an amazing family outing, not a boring moment and would do it again next time we visit.

Great day out with Capt. Justin Ferrel. Tailored our trip to exactly what we wanted . Awesome day.  Ready to book our next trip with him again. It was just like spending the day with family.  Lots of fish and even a shark.

My daughter and I had a great time. We landed plenty of fish and Captain Justin is very enthusiastic about his profession. Gave us a rundown on all the sites and history of the areas we fished. Great charter for kids. Made us feel as though we wear fishing with a friend instead of a charter.

My son and I had a blast fishing with Justin today on Good Times Key West.  He was very knowledgeable of all the fish we caught and other wildlife we saw. Next time we’re down in Key West, we’re giving Justin a call!

We were in Key West to celebrate my son’s 14th birthday. Going out on the boat with Captain Justin was perfect! We went fishing, snorkeling, island hopping and hung out on a sand bar! We saw dolphins, sea turtles, sharks and barricudas! So fun!!!

Was very happy, went out for 1/2 day with my husband and we had a blast. Captain Justin was very informative of the types of fish and information on the area. We seen turtles, dolphins went shelling on a small little island. Over all a great day.  We caught a stingray and some smaller fish that we sent back.

Fantastic experience.  Was a windy, but a very warm day in Key West.  A different charter company backed out on us, (family of 4), but Capt Justin was willing to take us out.  Took us out on both the Atlantic side, as well as the Gulf of Mexico side.  We fished the leeward side of mangrove islands which provided a wind block and calm water.  We caught grunt, shark and various snapper.  Capt Justin is young, energetic, fun to talk to, and very knowledgeable of the area and of course fishing.  He also played great music.  Whatever you want he is ready to accommodate, be it fishing, swimming or snorkeling.  We chose fishing. Our family was very happy with our charter.  Thanks Justin!

Wife begged off, so did I did not dolphin watch, snorkel, or go to a beach.  Just light tackle fished with Captain Justin.  He worked very hard to find fish that were biting.  No action on Gulf side, so we went to the Atlantic side and caught grunt and mangrove snapper. Pleasant time and I enjoyed the charter.
