Best Spearfishing Fishing Charters in Florida Keys

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!

It is super hot in Key Largo in June. If you're fishing it will be deep sea trolling, otherwise you'll pass out from the sun. Go in an earlier month for reef fishing.

Four hours is enough for kids or anyone new to deep sea fishing. Otherwise, if you can afford it, 6+ hours will get you much better options and more fish on the boat. Also, later June seems to be better than ealrier

The weather was the biggest deterrent factor in making this a great fishing trip. We had a great outcome in spite of the inclement weather conditions thanks to the skills and abilities of Captain Tony and his crew. The Singing Reel vessel was ideal to keep us dry and comfortable with its spacious and air conditioning cabin.

Communicate with your guide about what you're looking for and remember that the fish are the ones who decide where to be and what to eat. Have fun. Roll with the seasons and schools. Stay hydrated and wear a hat and long sleeve fishing shirt. The sun is the most dangerous thing on a fishing trip.

Book early because May is a great month to fish in FL. Also, early morning trips are cooler in May. Wear hats, sunscreen, wear long sleeve SPF shirts. And remember, you don’t always catch fish, or as many fish, or as big a fish as you’d like. The ocean is a big place and fishing is unpredictable. Most fishing guides will work very hard to put you on fish - that’s how they make their living.
