Yes you do. In 2019 Congress changed the rules on National Park entrance fees for all National Parks. If you or anyone in your group has the America the Beautiful Pass, Senior Pass, Access Pass, Military Pass or the Everglades Park Pass you are already covered for entrance into the Park.

No. We depend a lot on wild animals and on the weather to cooperate with us. We work very hard to get you on the fish. However, there are some factors that are just beyond our control. We do try to make sure that we only take you fishing when the conditions are right for success but on rare occasion, things just don’t work out — despite our best efforts. Rarely do we get skunked and not catch fish, but sometimes we just don’t catch that one certain fish that you wanted.

Florida Keys Fishing - Bamboo Charters

Go Fish 1 & Go Fish 2

These are our identical twins, built by Contender Boats in Miami 45 minutes from our dock. They’ve been building boats for over 35 years in South Florida and this 25 foot Bay boat is the best in the 25 foot and under class. We can easily accommodate up to 6 passengers and the Captain with comfortable seating for everyone. There is a T-top for shade, plenty of deck space, forward & rear casting platforms for fishing. The forward wrap around padded seating area is not found on any other bay boat on the market. Comfort, fishability, dry ride and speed all combine to make this bay boat the best bay boat we’ve ever run. Capt. Matt was the first to run bay boats for charter in the Keys and this is by far his favorite design on the market. You will agree after a few minutes aboard. Both Contenders are powered by a Yamaha Outboards 4-stroke 300 horsepower V-6.

Go Fish 3

This boat is a Ranger 22 that is perfect for up to 4 passengers and Captain. This smaller boat is very comfortable and very dry running. It has been a work horse for us for 5 years and a proven fishing machine. It’s not fancy like our Contenders and doesn’t have a T-top for shade so its best suited for 4 & 6 hour trips.

All boats have Garmin GPS/Fishfinders, VHF Radio, Stereo, Minnkota Trolling motor, Coolers and all required USCG safety gear.
