Spearfishing in Florida Keys

Grab your spear and experience the thrill of spearfishing in the Keys’ warm waters. Aboard Florida Keys spearfishing charters, you’ll explore stunning reefs, productive wrecks, and deep seas. Discover a range of beautiful underwater spots, catching plenty of delicious fish. 

What to Expect

This hand-to-hand combat is not for the faint-hearted – especially offshore. But Florida Keys spearfishing charters cater to all levels. Explore the calm backcountry, hit the reefs and shallower wrecks, or head offshore. 
 

The Upper Keys

All waters within 3 miles of shore in the Keys are considered “sanctuaries.” It is prohibited to spearfish here. In the upper keys, this means that you’ll have to head out to some deeper waters.
 
Out of Tavernier and Key Largo, experienced anglers will love the medium-deep waters of Pickles Reef. You’ll come across some monstrous Snappers and Groupers, giving you more bang for your buck as you look to fill the boat.
 

The Middle Keys

From Islamorada, Duck Key, and Marathon, the spearfishing opportunities are endless. The waters stay shallow for a lot longer, giving a wider range of spearfishing opportunities. 
 
Here, you’ll find more charters specializing in spearfishing, with a qualified guide on board. These will also include equipment, meaning you’ll have everything you need for a productive day.
 
Beginners can explore the reefs for Lobster to get a taste of spearfishing. If you have experience, then dive near wrecks such as the Thunderbolt or Adelaide Baker and spend anywhere from 4 to 10 hours testing your agility against Snappers, Groupers, and many more. 
 

The Lower Keys

Head to the southernmost point of the US for the widest array of spearfishing opportunities. Beginners can explore the shallow coral heads for delicious Hogfish. Hooking one of these dazzling creatures will leave you wanting more! 
 
The waters here get deep quickly. The more experienced among you can head offshore to battle some of the ocean’s most prized creatures. Near the Tortugas and Marquesas Islands, you’ll target Tuna, Mahi Mahi, and Wahoo for a spine-tingling underwater experience.

How to Prepare

Before hopping aboard a Florida Keys sportfishing charter, make sure that you have everything you need. Check with the captain whether they provide the necessary spearfishing gear or if you’ll need to bring your own. 
 
Many captains don’t advertise spearfishing-specific trips but are happy to accommodate spearfishing. Contact them and let them know what you want out of your Keys adventure. 
 
Whether it’s big fish you’re after, or it’s your first time – a Florida Keys sportfishing charter is sure to get the pulses racing!

I would recommend to definitely do your research on the type of fish you are planning to catch, bait and most importantly the fishing regulations of that area.
