Fishing the Dry Tortugas, Florida Keys is an exciting and rewarding fishing experience.

The Dry Tortugas and Marquesas

The Dry Tortugas, Marquesas Keys, and surrounding waters is a bottom fisherman’s paradise! Huge Yellowtail Snapper, Mutton Snapper, Red Grouper, Black Grouper, and Gag Grouper are all abundant. The King Mackerel bite can be absolutely sick at times and if sailfish are your cup of tea, the Tortugas is another great place to catch them. Again, the Tortugas has been well protected and the fish life on the Tortugas Reefs shows it. Limit catches are the norm on Florida Keys Charters to the Dry Tortugas, so bring your coolers!

Leaving from either Key West or Islamorada, you’ll board our Dry Tortugas Charter Boat, THAT’S RIGHT for a multi-day fishing excursion to the Marquesas Keys and waters surrounding the Dry Tortugas that you’ll not soon forget.

In May and late April, and May, our Florida Keys Charter Boat, THAT’S RIGHT, moves to Key West where we base all of our Marquesas & Tortugas Charters. The run is about 1 1/2 hours to the fishing grounds, when fishing Key West. Typically, the boat departs at 9:00am on the first day and will return at approximately 9:00am the last day of your trip. In the evenings we anchor in the Marquesas and outside Dry Tortugas National Park. The Marquesas Keys provides us with great access to some of the best inshore light tackle fishing around.
