How long do your luxury fishing charters last?

Our everyday sportfishing adventures are full-day excursions. We typically leave the dock early, fish all day and are back in time for you to prepare your fresh catch for dinner. We do not offer half-day adventures at the current time.

If you’re looking for more time in private seclusion in the Florida Keys, we are happy to customize a multi-day sportfishing adventure that includes the option of staying multiple nights on-board the Half Full, with each day packed to the brim with top of the line fishing.

What's the maximum number of guests for a trip?

The Half Full is happy to customize an unforgettable experience on the water comfortably for a maximum number of six guests at one time.

What type of fish do you catch?

The type of fish that you can target in the Florida Keys completely depends on the time of year and what type of fishing you are looking to do.

We offer two fishing trips aboard the Half Full.

The first targets pelagic fish species in the deep waters of the Gulfstream off of the Florida Keys. Depending on the time of year, these trips target species like Mahi Mahi, Tuna, Wahoo, Swordfish, Sailfish and the rare Marlin.

Our second trip targets species that live among the reefs of the Florida Keys including snapper species, grouper, and a variety of smaller reef fish.

You can learn more about the specifics of our sportfishing adventures on our Luxury Florida Keys Sportfishing Page.

Marathon Fishing Guest

Captain James and Dan were fantastic and made it easy for 2 adults and 3 kids to fish. No time was wasted, very efficient and we had amazing Yellowtail and Permit fishing. We even made it out to the hump and caught some black fin tuna. We will definitely book again!

Florida Keys Fishing Guest

Fishing with Captain James is an unforgettable experience. His knowledge and expertise are unmatched and his passion for the ocean, fishing and diving are contagious. Captain James put us on the fish and made for a completely memorable day. Highly recommend an adventure with the Half Full!

I chartered the Half Full out of Marathon, Florida Keys, to take some customers deep-sea fishing with Captain James and first mate Dan. We had a tremendous day catching some really nice yellowtail snapper and finished with a number of Mahi. These guys were true professionals, and I can’t say enough good things about the crew, we will definitely be coming back next year. Thanks for making this day so great and completely blowing away our expectations!!
