To the west, Everglades National Park is known for its expansive flats and channels teaming with snook, redfish, trout, tarpon and snapper just to name a few. The Oceanside of Key Largo provides world class sight-fishing for big bonefish, tarpon and permit as well as the numerous shallow reef species like grouper and snapper.

Night Fishing
Nighttime trips provide a unique opportunity to experience Key Largo and The Everglades from a different perspective. When the sun goes down the fishing really heats up with Tarpon, Snook and Snapper. 4, 6 & 8 hour trips are available with the same rates as above. The months of March through October are the best time for night fishing.

Lobster Charters (4 Hours)- $300
From August 6th until May 1st Lobster season is open. Dirty Waters Charters is now offering Nighttime bully-net charters for lobster. These trips are a great change from fishing with the opportunity to bring home 6 lobster per person.

This is a great experience for the entire family. The underwater lights in the clear waters of the keys makes it a great opportunity to witness life below the waterline.
