It is rumored that Islamorada is home to a larger fishing fleet per square mile than anywhere else in the world so it’s only natural that islanders stake their claim to the nickname “sport fishing capital of the world.” This tropical paradise has the largest charter fleet available anywhere for both back-country and deep-sea excursions to fishing grounds unparalleled in the world. Here, world-class captains leave right from our docks.
Whether you’re an experienced angler or baiting your first hook, our captains can take you anywhere – from the Atlantic shoreline to the mangrove-lined bays and canals of the Everglades in search of a trophy-worthy fish, including dolphin, yellowtail, bonefish, redfish, tarpon and sea trout. From deep-sea fishing to fly- and spin-fishing, we know these waters well.
For offshore or backcountry fishing, we recommend these top-notch captains:
- Offshore - Capt Steve Stone, Party Boat Charter, The Island Star
- Backcountry – Capt Jeff, Dockside Charters
- Backcountry – Capt Kip
