Great for families or anyone that wants to see the incredible Looe Key coral reef just 4 miles offshore of Little Torch Key. You can see coral, abundant fish, turtles, stingrays, parrotfish, blue tangs, and the chance to meet one of the reef's resident 200+lb goliath groupers!



Let us show you sandbars that will make you feel like you're in the Bahamas! Soft, white sand and crystal clear water await you on a sandbar trip. You can relax on a floatie or bring food and we'll bring the grill for a sandbar picnic!

Reef Fishing

Fish the reef's off the Lower Keys!

Year round we target black grouper, red grouper, gag grouper, yellowtail, lane and mangrove snapper, mutton snapper, mackerel and many other edible fish to fill the cooler. 

We can also add wreck fishing to our reef fishing trips.


Inshore & Backcountry Fishing

Fish close to shore for snapper, grouper, mackerel, yellow jacks, porgy, margates and more. Perfect for families with kids or the avid fisherman that wants to learn the waters of the Lower Keys.

This trip is also great when the wind is blowing and you don't want to get too rough!
