We are a multigenerational Florida Keys family who grew up with a deep love of everything water, especially fishing! Our captain started fishing as a toddler, where he first discovered his love of fishing, and he has been an avid angler since then which has prepared him with an uncanny sense of where to find his catch. With our family interwoven in the local community we have a unique perspective of our islands so you can count on us for sharing “locals only” tips on fishing, art, dining, shopping and other fun filled experiences in our quaint town. We look forward to creating the best fishing experience you and your family and friends could ever hope for!
Welcome to Island Girl! Charter a yacht instead of a center console skiff or a slow 9 MPH Charter Boat. You only have so many hours in a day, so enjoy them with air conditioning, a full bathroom, and speed. Covering more ground increases your time fishing. Island Girl Islamorada offers a discount for active military and veterans as well as any disability.
Climb aboard the “Island Girl” a Cabo Yachts-made express cruisier, measuring at 35’ in length. She was originally constructed in ‘96 and fully restored in 2018. The power behind her is substantial, with twin Caterpillar engines each producing 435 HP. A full-head toilet is available on board, as well as a full kitchen and bed, essentials for multi-day trips. Outriggers and a sight tower are present as well, to help you grab that dream catch straight out of the blue sea!
If you’re interested in some serious sportfishing, then this charter is right up your alley. We will go after a variety of exciting species such as the Tarpon, various Sharks, Snappers, Mahi Mahi, Amberjacks, Jack Crevalles, White and Blue Marlin, Permits, Sailfish, and any others you run into. The techniques you can use are as varied as the species, with spinning, jigging, popping, drift fishing, and bottom fishing with light and heavy tackle, as well as trolling for pelagics.
Island Girl Islamorada will provide customers with all required equipment. Drinks and a variety of snacks are provided free of charge and are available on board. The crew offers cleaning and filleting your catch, so don’t forget a cooler to take your fish home.
It was difficult to complete the booking initially as it took a 2or3 days to fully confirm the booking. We had 6 people, but there was not really enough seating for 6 when we were heading out to the fishing waters. There was some chop so not having enough seating was difficult. Juan and Rex were very helpful in keeping our hooks baited and Juan filleted our fish for us when we got back to the dock.
