Come fish the beautiful, clear, and calm inshore waters of Key West! Our 24’ bay boats are comfortable and shallow to get you to where the fish are. We get to the fishing grounds quickly so that we can make the most of our day. We do stand-up fishing with light tackle spin fishing gear or fly fishing gear (your choice) to catch the best fish out there, and we practice catch-and-release on all inedible species (and keep a few of the ones that are good for eating!).

In the backcountry, we're always on the hunt for many different species of fish. In fact, during the winter, it is not uncommon to have one of our fishing charters come back with 20+ species of fish. Backcountry fishing appeals to folks who just want to bend rods on many different species of fish, or on whatever is available--as long as it fights.

Here's a general guide to what we catch and when we catch it:
Winter (November-February): Snappers, jacks, barracudas, ladyfish, trout, mackerel, cobia, sharks, bluefish
Spring (March-June): Tarpon, snappers, barracudas, sharks, jacks, permit
Summer (July-October): Bonefish, tarpon, permit, snappers, barracudas, sharks

Meeting instructions:
Specific pick up or taxi instructions will appear on your voucher after you purchase your trip.

Special instructions:
- You'll need to take a taxi to the marina. The taxi will cost about $20-$30 each way and take about 15 minutes from the cruise ship pier. If you're staying at a hotel, consult with the concierge to see how long the taxi ride will be and how much it will cost.
- We suggest that you bring your swimsuit, a towel, sunscreen, sunglasses, a camera/video camera, big smiles, and a positive attitude.
- To prevent motion sickness, get a good night's sleep the night before and avoid greasy foods prior to the trip.
- You may bring along some sodas and put them in our cooler. We'll provide bottled water and ice.
- Every day may be a fishing day, but not necessarily a catching day. Catching fish is not guaranteed.

Shore Excursions

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),

Traveling into Russia can be nerve-wracking (and getting more so every day) -- but ShoreTrips made it easy by providing all of the paperwork and instructions, as well as organizing good guides.
