We can arrange all of your fishing needs while you're in the Lower Keys and Key West. The offshore boat is a 30 foot Contender, the "Raised Up". It's a fishing machine! We also can get you in the backcountry on a 22 foot Shearwater bay boat. The trips can be 4 hours, 6 hours and 8 hours depending on your preference. We can keep some fish to eat while you're here or we can do some very exciting "catch-and-release trips also.
