Islamorada Family Fishing

fun for the whole family

Islamorada family Fishing Trips

Visiting Islamorada Florida? Well, are you aware that Islamorada Florida is widely recognized as the sport fishing capital of the world!  What better way to spend the day in our beautiful slice of paradise than fishing with your family while exploring the vast 900 square miles of the Florida Bay and Everglades National Park.

Over the years, Florida Keys Fun Fishing has become the premier fishing service for those seeking family fishing activities in the keys. We specialize in providing family friendly fishing trips to those seeking a fun day on the water in Islamorada Florida. Whether you’re an avid fisherman with years of experience, or you and your family have never been on a boat before, we know you’ll have a wonderful time catching fish, seeing the mangrove islands and exploring the crystal-clear waters of Islamorada.


Family fishing trips are a version of our backcountry fishing geared particularly toward families with kids!  Venturing out in our big and comfy bay boats it’s a blast for adults and children alike! You can expect to explore the waters of Islamorada on one of our pristine bay boats while fishing with the best equipment available in the industry.  We will ensure that your family will have a fun time on the water wether it’s you first time out or your 50th!  Our captains offer lots of smiles, gentle instruction as needed, and a no pressure day on the water… we keep fishing fun!

In the backcountry we catch a wide variety of species of fish all in the shallow waters of the Florida Bay and Everglades. On a family fun trip these can include:

  • Spotted Seatrout
  • Mangrove Snapper
  • Jack Cravelle
  • Ladyfish
  • Catfish
  • Bluefish
  • Sharks
  • Barracuda
  • Spanich Mackerel

As many visitors are unsure of what to fish for and what level angler they really are, we structure our family fishing trips around these species using light tackle to provide constant rod bending, drag screaming action for our anglers. This keeps the kids engaged and makes for an exciting day on the water!  Not everyone wants to fish? No problem! Come a long for the ride, enjoy the beautiful scenery and have a great time without even touching a rod!   We have lots of mangrove islands to see, as well as numerous animal species that include dolphins, sharks, turtles, and various bird life.  Our bayboats can accommodate up to 6 people as long as a few are young kids!

The biggest question we get is “Won’t we get seasick?” and the answer is unequivocally NO! The shallow waters of the Florida Bay and Everglades are very user friendly and not rocky rolly like the sea sick inducing waters of the deep Atlantic Ocean and as experienced on offshore charters.


Kids of all ages can benefit from a positive fishing experience and a chance to be outdoors in the beautiful Florida Keys Backcountry. A family fishing trip can let one see nature at its best, learn about our fragile environment, and even get a picture or two of your very own prized catch!

At Florida Keys Fun Fishing, we believe that your day on the water should be spent enjoying quality time with your family. You’re here on vacation, we’re here to make sure you have a memorable day on the water that the kids will talk about for a lifetime. It’s the best part of our job!
