Spiny Lobster or Florida Lobster are found in various water depths through the Florida Keys, they are fun to catch and are excellent table fare. Each year there is a two-day mini-season, pre-season opener, which occurs on the last consecutive Wednesday and Thursday in July, Lobster hunting during the mini-season is 300$ more expensive per trip....Read More
The regular eight-month Lobster season runs from August 6th-March 31st.
Florida Lobsters are found hiding under coral heads, rock ledges, holes, or really anything that they can back into and get some shelter. We catch them in depths from three feet to 150+ feet of water, making them a great hunt for any age or experience level.
We catch spiny lobster with a net and tickle stick, lobster snare, or by simply grabbing them. Keep in mind, these lobsters DO NOT have claws. Each guest is allowed to take six lobsters per day and your lobster license is included with your charter. We also include all of your equipment and one of our professional guides will be there to assist in the water.

I have to say that this was definitely a trip of a lifetime. When I booked this trip the Capt. Was fast to respond wanting to know what intrest me and what I was wanting. I told him in a few sentences what we were looking for and man did ...Read More he ever come through. Everything we ask we got plus more than we ever expected. Capt. Jennings knows his stuff. He is a super great guy and is as outgoing and fun as they come. I will use him in the future and I would recommend him to anyone. Not only are you fishing but he can teach and tell you things of the area and species of each fish. I cant say enough about him. He helped me land a fish that I never thought I would be catching but only see happen on TV. He helped fulfill a dream for me with a 100+ pd Tarpon. If you will listen and be open minded the experience you get will be one you will never forget.

We had amazing weather and an even better captain. We enjoyed fishing and the overall experience. Captain Chet was friendly, entertaining and knew his stuff. We enjoyed every minute and was sad when the day was over. Definitely a must do. Captain Chet was the best!!

Just back from an amazing week in the Keys. The highlight was the 3 days spent with the FYC crew. Capt. Tony and his team are awesome. While the diving and spearfishing were great, the customer service was absolutely phenomenal. My son's first big dive trip, ...Read More and he loved it. 5 Stars. We will be back!

Tony and Luke are the guys you want to hire for your next Islamorada trip. Went out back to back days for fishing and spearfishing for a bachelor party weekend. Can’t say enough positive things. Out of 6 of us 5 had never spear fished before. Tony took the time ...Read More to explain how to do it, get us in the right spot, and even pointed out what to shoot. If you want a captain that is professional, safe, and laid back then look no further. He even had beer and snacks on board. Our trip was perfect. Can’t wait to come back for another charter

Tony and the team were great from the start. Tony helped put together a trip despite all of the recent travel cancellations. We went spear fishing and culled a bunch of Lion Fish. It is a safe and amazing experience that I highly recommend. Tony truly ...Read More is a master and helps with fish identification and managing the gear. If you are thinking about it.....
