Captain and owner Richard Gomez has dedicated his life to providing lifetime fishing memories to residents and visitors of Key West for over 25 years. Whether you have only a couple of hours or a couple of days, Captain Gomez will tailor your trip to the greatest odds of bagging a boat full of memories. Either trolling for big game or live baiting, fishing the backwaters leave you with a sun-drenched satisfaction that is tough to top.
Lazy hot sun shimmering off the sapphire blue water gently slaps against the fiberglass hull. Fluttering sounds of baitfish chased from below by larger predators, attacked in flight by frigate birds. Suddenly the water explodes in a flurry as a hooked sailfish makes a run for it....
No, this is not a paragraph from a Hemingway novel, it is a frequent occurrence aboard Key Wests own charter boat Captain Conch. Live the dream of every angler to fish the exciting gulf stream waters of the Keys with a genuine native guide. Stalk the elusive Marlin, Sailfish, Dolphin, Tuna, and Wahoo inthe deep blue waters of the Gulfstream or try your luck closer to shore for tarpon, permit, and shark. For the angler looking for a thrill, the barracuda are circling the reefs waiting for you and your bally hoo (common Keys baitfish).
Located on the Historic Charter Row in Garrison Bight, Captain Gomez will take you where the fish are. Captain Conch offers per seat and private charters, full and half days as well as night trips for shark and tarpon.
Captain Gomez can also tailor a trip to your needs. Just getting out on the water, specialized trips to various reefs, or watching the Dolphins play in the Gulf, are just a few of the non-fishing related trips Captain Conch offers.
