About Your Trip

If you're looking for that once in a lifetime Big Game Fishing experience consider booking our 10-hour Daytime Swordfish charter. Swordfish are typically nocturnal, solitary and aggressive... making them one of the most challenging fisheries in the Keys but also one of the most satisfying, exciting and rewarding. Hooking, battling, and landing one of these giant broadbills is a fishing trip you will remember for a lifetime. And also, yes... they are very tasty on the grill.

The morning started off rough but Captain Dru and his first mate worked their butts off to make this trip one to remember. I will definitely be booking with them again on my next trip to the Florida Keys!
