Key West...brings to most the images of perfect weather, palm trees swaying, a little island music in the air or maybe flip flops for shoes but for everyone...the water!
We all have a different idea of the perfect fishing day. Fishing is a sport to be enjoyed at your own pace. Some like a laid back, hat down over your eyes, easy going day, just a little rest and relaxation time with a fishing rod in one hand and a tall cold one in the other, right? For others watching the kids squeal with excitement as another fish comes aboard for dinner or maybe it's a hard fighting brute of a fish trying to take the fishing rod right out of your hands. It's all good...so what if you are not that hard-core, seasoned pro angler, we have a perfect trip with you in mind...The Ultimate Action "Near-Shore" charter...
This is the fishing trip that put Key West on the map!

Our Shark Challenge trips are without a doubt the most exhilarating way to meet nature's top predators face to face. Long before the shark tournaments featured Key West as the shark capital of the U.S. we battled these brutes daily. Bull Sharks, Lemons, Hammerheads, and Black tips are in great abundance in the shallow waters very close to Key West. There is something quite primal about shark fishing, after all this is the water world's apex predator! To learn more, go to our Shark Challenge page.
