Key West Beaches & Dolphins!

March 22nd, 2014

Each Key West private boat charter is extremely unique. The customized charter is uniquely designed for each individuals interest. My trips vary quite a bit each day according to who I have on board and the optimal conditions. This trip was two couples interested in a relaxing, chilled, sightseeing trip in the backcountry of Key West. Also they liked the idea of my new very spacious, and comfortable Hurricane deck boat! A nice way to cruise the inland, shallow waters surrounding Key West.

We decided to head straight to the beach just a few miles West of Key West the island right before the Marquesas. The only island in the area with a natural beach. They enjoyed their time there walking around in the shallows, looking for shells, and chilling on the beach chairs. A great way to recover from a day on Duval St. in Key West.

We were very lucky to spot a pod of our residential Key West dolphins playing in the channel right before the beach. We watched them for sometime from the boat while they swam around us checking us out. Always an amazing experience when the dolphins choose to come to your boat and see whats going on, especially when it is two young calfs. They jumped around and wrestled the entire time. Check out the video my client captured of the dolphin jumping out of the water!

Key West family boat trip

March 21st, 2014

We started the day snorkeling a patch reef just a few miles off of Key West in the Gulf of Mexico. They saw barracudas, tropical fish, stingrays and lots of colorful coral.

We then took a boat cruise along the mangrove islands to a larger remote island with a white sand beach. There they sat on the beach and enjoyed a picnic lunch.

After some combing the beach for shells we loaded up the boat to a nearby wreck for some wreck fishing. After not much success at the wreck, we traveled to do some backcountry channel fishing. First line in and first time fishing the daughter landed a beautiful Barjack!

We were so fortunate to experience such a beautiful day on the water watching dolphins, light tackle fishing, snorkeling, island hopping, and relaxing on a remote secluded beach all just a few miles from Key West.

Boys Key West trip of fishing & football!

March 19th, 2014

We spent the day in the backcountry just a few miles east of Key West wade fishing on a beautiful white sand bar. Paul, visiting from Sweden with his two boys, caught a really nice Jack Creval. He was surprised at the fighting power of this fish!

We were having such a great day fishing! I chummed up some Bonnet head sharks and he landed one! That was quite exciting for the boys to see the shark fishing.

After all the fun fishing, we cruised around the islands looking for Sea turtles, Sting Rays, & Dolphins. And found a beautiful white sand beach exposed during low tide just ten miles from Key West. That was a perfect opportunity for the guys to play some football and enjoy the warm weather of Key West before returning to Sweden the following day.

While enjoying watching the boys be boys, I saw some large Barracudas checking out the actions as well. Also the beautiful sight of daisy chaining Tarpon!
