Gulfstream Party Boat Fishing Night Trip
Tour Participation Requirements
No matter how young or old or experienced or new to fishing you are, a night spent out on the ocean is hard to beat. There's just something about it that makes you feel extra good about life. Of course, boating a bunch of tasty, exciting game fish adds to all that goodness –even if you release your prizes to fight another day.
The 58-ft. Gulfstream IV, latest incarnation of a fleet that's led the pack of Key West's party boats for 60 years, is gassed up, baited up, crewed up and ready to carry you out into that magical evening sea – where it's peaceful and cool and fishy and no SPF60 is required.
Your genial captain and crew are skilled at locating the underwater action, and at helping those who aren't familiar with nighttime drift fishing get started and on the success track. Those with angling experience will enjoy being able to focus completely on their fish-whispering techniques – maybe even picking up some pointers from others onboard – as the crew helps with baiting and reeling, when wanted.
No muss, no fuss, no prep. All you need to do for this peak experience is show up. Your license and all the gear is included, and if you choose to keep your catch, fish cleaning and filleting is available. Onboard are comfortable seats and restrooms, an air-conditioned cabin, and an array of snacks and soft drinks from the galley.
Now, close your eyes, sit back, and imagine the thrill of fighting amberjack, grouper, snapper, mackerel – even tuna or swordfish – under the stars. It's a total kick, and it's right there waiting for you, when the Key West sun goes down. And the Gulfstream IV heads out.
Under cover of darkness, and broad daylight
It's hard to be out on the nightime water in Key West without thinking about… rum-running. With these dark empty seas, and Cuba just 90 miles off, it's no wonder this place was Ground Zero of the illicit liquor importation biz during Prohibition, with some local fortunes made. But turns out that even more hooch may have simply been smuggled in by regular Joes traveling the Key West-Havana Ferry. Stories of gurgling baggage – including coffins – abound.
