Join DirtyBoat Charters and let us guide you to an unforgettable experience in the heart of Islamorada.


Thrilling Swordfish Pursuit:


Swordfish, the most sought-after fish on the planet, have captivated the angling community with their strength and renowned fighting spirit. In Islamorada, our expert captains will take you to the prime fishing grounds, typically in the depths of 1400′-1800′. These magnificent creatures offer an exhilarating challenge for anglers of all skill levels. Whether you’re a seasoned pro or a novice angler, our charters provide an opportunity to battle these majestic giants and potentially land a trophy-sized catch.


Unforgettable Fishing Grounds:


DirtyBoat Charters operates offshore to Floyd’s Wall, a renowned area for swordfish fishing in Islamorada. While there’s no guarantee of catching a swordfish, the journey itself is filled with anticipation. As we venture to the fishing grounds, keep an eye out for signs of life such as diving birds and floating debris, often indicating the presence of schooling fish like Mahi-mahi or Tuna. This adds an extra element of excitement to your charter, as you may have the chance to reel in other sought-after species along the way.


Expert Techniques and Equipment:


Our experienced crew at DirtyBoat Charters utilizes proven techniques and state-of-the-art equipment to maximize your chances of a successful swordfish catch. We employ carefully rigged heavy baits, deep-dropping them all the way to the bottom using 10lb+ sinkers. Swordfish tend to lie on the bottom during daylight hours, and we adjust our approach accordingly. Depending on the day and conditions, you can typically expect 4-6 drops on a standard swordfishing charter. With our cutting-edge equipment, including Lindgren-Pitman SV-1200 Electric Reels, Shimano Tiagra 50W Hooker Electric Reels, AVET 50W with Dolphin Electric Assist, Garmin fish finders, and a 3KW transducer, we leave no stone unturned in our pursuit of the big catch.


Breathtaking Mahi-Mahi Encounters:


As we make our way back to the dock, there’s one more opportunity to hook onto an exciting species. While heading home, we navigate through Mahi-mahi territory, giving you a final chance to reel in these vibrant and acrobatic fish. This adds an extra level of excitement to your charter, ensuring that the adventure continues until the very end.
