It has a maximum cruising speed of 40 knots and can comfortably take up to six guests. Fully equipped with navigational electronics, the vessel has a toilet on board, which is a much-needed thing when you spend your day on the water.

The Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary is home to a great variety of amazing creatures. Since 1990, the Sanctuary protects more than 2900 square nautical miles of the Florida Keys coastal and ocean waters.

On your day out with Easy Does It, you will be able to target a range of local species, such as Tarpon and Permit, as well as Cobia, Jack Crevalle, Snappers, Groupers, Sharks, and much more. Captain John has been fishing these waters all his life and knows the best techniques to put you on a keeper fish.

Your trip with Easy Does It will come inclusive with fishing equipment and drinking water for you and your group. You need to grab your camera, sunscreen, sunglasses, snacks, and appropriate clothing.

    afternoon 1/2 day fishing trip is a 4 hour charter that departs at 1pm and returns at 5pm. not everyone wants to get up early while on vacation!!! if that appeals to you then this is the right trip for you. with two high tides and two low tides every day afternoon fishing can and is just as productive as our morning trips.

Born and raised in the Florida Keys, I learned to fish at an early age. Fishing and diving became my second nature. First, I started working as a commercial fisherman and then added being a professional guide to my resume. I'm a third generation captain and professional guide. I've proved my skill in various tournaments.
