We offer world class offshore fishing in the Florida Keys and have spared no expense in rigging the vagabond with the best equipment and tackle available. We are able to catch almost all offshore species of fish found in the Atlantic waters of the Florida Keys, from bottom fishing for yellowtail & grouper, trolling for dolphin, tuna, wahoo & marlin, kite fishing for sailfish and even night trips for swordfish.
