Fish with a Pro

at Charter Boat Row

About Us

Welcome to Historic Charter Boat Row, located in the Key West City Marina at Garrison Bight, Florida. Our experienced team of charter fishing boat captains has been dedicated to the promotion and preservation of sport fishing for more than 30 years. By booking directly with our captains, you can avoid commission fees from booking agencies or reservation businesses. With over 35 boats ranging in size from 18 feet to 65 feet, you can experience the thrill of Key West fishing at its finest!

We offer various types of fishing experiences to cater to your interests

If you're looking to fish wrecks for cobia, snappers, and other species of fish, then our light tackle boats are perfect for you. Offshore, we live bait and kite fish for sailfish, king mackerel, and tunas. These boats are also perfect for tarpon fishing due to their walkaround capability. The maximum number of anglers per boat is 6. Our offshore or deep sea fishing boats generally range from 32 ft. to 50 ft. and can accommodate up to 6 anglers in your party. They're perfect for trolling for marlin, sailfish, dolphin, wahoo, and tuna, which can be non-stop action when the fishing is good. Some boats also fish the wrecks or live bait with kites. Lastly, we have two head boats or party boats up to 58 ft. long, located on the dock that offer full and half-day trips. They usually hook yellowtail snapper, mutton snapper, and mackerel. Sharks, barracuda, and other species of fish are also caught on all of these boats.

The next step is to pick the charter that is right for you!
