Experience world-class fishing at Ocean Key Resort & Spa

World Class Fishing

Key West is known for its amazing fishing, be it in the flats and shallows, sight fishing for permit, tarpon or bone fish, the deeper waters of the backcountry staying just inside of the reef, on the hunt for snapper, grouper or possibly even tuna. Or if you’re adventurous go to the deep water and fight the big one, a sailfish, marlin or mahi. No matter which way you choose to go, you’re in for quite the experience.
