Visiting Key Largo & Islamorada in the Florida Keys? Book an Ecotour with Us

Another January full moon as come and gone and we’re one day closer to the 2012 Doomsday party.  Like Jimmy Buffet says, “I don’t know where I am gonna go when the volcano blows!”

People often ask me what else there is to do in Key Largo and Islamorada aside from fishing. I suggest booking an affordable ecotour or sunset cruise with us.  There is no better way than to see the authentic nature of the Florida Keys than from our boat as we cruise through the mangrove fields in Florida Bay off Key Largo and Islamorada. It’s a great way to decompress after a long journey to the Keys.  You can relax with family and friends before starting your vacation. 

The Florida Keys has four major marine ecosystems: mangroves, coral reefs, delicate sea grass beds and sponge bed.  You will find photo opportunities everywhere you look.  These tours are unique and you never know what you may see.

If you are into bird watching, then the Florida Keys is the place, so don’t forget to bring along your binoculars.

During the ecotour there is a good chance you will spot a dolphin, sea turtle or a Florida Manatee along the way.

As most already know, the Florida Keysis famous for its sunsets. There are photo opportunities everywhere you look.

Don’t forget your boat drinks and boat music. We can play them for you on our surround sound marine stereo system.  We will even bring a couple fishing rods along if you wish to catch a few fish for dinner that night.

If you are planning on visiting Key Largo or Islamorada in the Florida Keys and are interested in learning more about our customized Florida Keys ecotours & sunset cruises please contact us today at 305-619-2126 or email us

How to Make Wahoo Sashimi

After reading the forum posts on Florida today I was pleased to see how well other South East Florida and FL Keys recreational fishing teams, charter boats captains and guides have been doing offshore fishing for wahoo in Key Largo & Islamorda. In my opinion there is no better way to end a very successful day of offshore fishing in the Florida Keys than eating freshly caught wahoo or tuna sashimi style while enjoying ice cold beer and wine with friends and family.

Seared Wahoo served Sashimi Style

Using a sharp knife cut the wahoo fillets into manageable size loins. Cover the loins with your favorite spice rub or sesame seeds.  Coat a large pan with vegetable oil or peanut oil. This will prevent the wahoo loin from sticking to the pan. Sear the wahoo loin over low to moderate heat until the outside wahoo flesh is just slightly cooked.  Take your time, it is very important not to over cook wahoo. The inner wahoo meat should be slightly rare.  When done, remove wahoo loins from the pan and chill them the fridge.  After the wahoo loin has chilled, bring out your inner sashimi chef and slice the loins into thin pieces.  Serve with wasabi and soy sauce. Don’t forget the wine or the beer.

Cheers & Wahoooo!

FL Keys Fishing Jan 3rd Fishing Report:Cold Front and Hot Sailfish Bite!

Our first passing cold front in the Florida Keys may have cooled down the weather, but it did not cool down the fishing.  

Those that fished this morning were kept warm by the hot Sailfish bite! Multiple sailfish releases were reported today.

We will start our 2012 fishing season later this week targeting our favorite fish- wahoo.  These great tasting fish are typically caught around the January full moon in depths between 75ft-250 ft off the Florida Keys reef line.

Leaving the dock at first light & having lines in the water at sunrise works well for us. Sometimes we sleep in then capitalize on the early/late afternoon bite.

If you are are looking to go fishing in the Florida Keys this winter or spring, contact us today for booking information or give us a call at 305-619-2126.
