Gulfstream Party Boat Fishing Half Day Trip
Tour Participation Requirements
Fishing boat operations in a busy seafront destination like Key West thrive – or dive – on the strength of their reputation. The Coast Guard-inspected, Gulfstream IV is a great example. She's operated by Key West's longest running deep-sea charter outfit – here since 1947. Over those years, they've learned a thing or two about living up to their "Catch Fish and Make Customers Happy" motto. And a long string of positive testimonials on social media says they got it right.
Fishing time is precious, and the Gulfstream's powerful twin turbos make sprints out from shore to the best trolling spots a zippy affair. Her generous six-hour half-day (among the longest) allows plenty of time to get the job done, too. Adding to the efficiency are an affable captain and crew, skilled at helping those who aren't familiar with bottom fishing get started and on the track to success. Meanwhile, anglers with experience will enjoy being able to focus on doing what they love, while someone else handles the pre- and post-catch chores.
Subject to bag limits and seasonal restrictions, you can keep what you catch – even have them cleaned and prepped for cooking at one of the many area restaurants that offer this. Or you can do your part for natural resource conservation by releasing those beauties back into the sea. After posing for brag photos, of course.
The beautiful clear waters off Key West teem with many of the world's most popular sport and eating fish. Some have your name on them, right now. And this is your chance to find and claim them.
No, it's not "Capt. Tony" at the helm
Lovingly dubbed “Key West’s Most Famous Resident,” Tony Tarracino died at age 92 in 2008. In addition to his 35 years as a fishing boat captain – he'd been a bootlegger, a gunrunner, an unlucky gambler, keeper of a legendary Key West saloon still named after him, and town Mayor (his campaign slogan: "All you need in this life is a tremendous sex drive and a great ego. Brains don't mean #$%^.")
