Inshore & Offshore Fishing

Learn More!

Island Time Charters has fished these waters for more than a decade and has found the very best spots for Snapper, Grouper, Tarpon, Permit, Bonefish, Sharks, Mackerel, Dolphin, Sailfish, Tuna & more. Whether you’re looking to book a fishing charter for a delicious snapper dinner or just a day of bending rods, our professional captains will show you what Key West fishing is all about.

Spearfishing Charters

Learn More!

With the Gulf Stream pushing so close to our reef line and a huge span of flats splitting the Atlantic and Gulf, Key West waters offer abundant feeding grounds and estuaries, making fishing for Grouper, Snapper, a Hogfish or blue water game, a truly memorable experience. Our captains can take you from the American Shoals to the Dry Tortugas in search of that once in a lifetime fish.

Lobstering Charters

Learn More!

Lobstering is done in three to eight feet of water and this wonderful sport can be enjoyed by anyone, and the best part is… not only will you get to see some of the best reefs in Key West, but you’ll catch dinner at the same time! Our captains will take you to the “less traveled” reefs that are rarely seen by others and seldom fished. Not only will you leave with lobster caught with your own hands, you will have developed a love for a new sport.

Snorkel, Scuba & Dolphin Tours

Learn More!

Island Time Charters offers snorkeling & scuba, sunset sails and dolphin tours. A few miles south of Key West lies the third largest barrier reef in the world; to the West, multiple, shallow, life-filled patch reefs can be found, as well as beautiful sponge beds. You will see soft coral reefs frequented by migrating rays, dolphin, as well as a shipwreck shallow enough to snorkel. No matter what your particular interest, you will see something great!

Whether for business, family fun or a private get away for two, a day or sunset cruise aboard the “Galliant Effort” will allow you to experience everything the waters of Key West have to offer, and do it with unequaled style in unparalleled comfort.
