Historic Charter Boat Row, Key West
(4/5 based on 20+ reviews on the web)
Some of the “fightingest” fish in the world swim in the waters surrounding Key West. To catch them, anglers often make the wise choice of chartering a fishing vessel run by an experienced, professional captain. In Key West, historic Charter Boat Row in Garrison Bight on Roosevelt boasts the largest fleet of charter boats in Old Town Key West: a long row of seaworthy craft, idle until till they set out again in search of sport fishing action. The type of craft here that are the most imposing, by virtue of their soaring outriggers, and “tuna towers”, are the deep sea fishing “battle-wagons”. They are typically 40-50 feet in length. They range offshore, out to the Gulf Stream, in pursuit of sailfish, marlin, dolphin, and other large ocean-going (pelagic) fish species. These charter vessels and their crews often take center stage when the talk tums to fishing legends. And, it is with their deep sea adventures that this “capsule history” is chiefly concerned.
Our Key West vacation trip planner makes visiting Historic Charter Boat Row and other Key West attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.
