The price for a Key West fishing charter can have a dramatic range. Key West fishing charter prices depend on many different factors. Some of the factors include: type of boat, length of trips, location, bait, catering and demand for the charter. Typically smaller boats in Key West such as flats or bay boats are the cheapest. These boats burn a lot less fuel then other boats in Key West and do not have any crew members besides the captain. The price for this type of fishing charter usually start around $500 for a half day and goes up to $7oo for a full day. The center consoles in Key West would be the next step up from the bay and flats boat. They are typically a little larger and can go out in the ocean for deep sea fishing. The price for these center console trips begin around $600 for a half day and go up to $900 for a full day. For larger groups it probably makes sense to charter a sportfish style boat in Key West. These boats can hold up to 6 people and usually have a bathroom on-board. These Key West boats range from $750 for a half day up to $1200 for a full day. The price is higher for the sportfish style boats because they normally have a two man crew, burn more fuel and have higher maintenance expenses and dockage fees.
