Shark Fishing Adventure | Starting at: $234
4 Hours | 3:00 PM View Details

The sandy flats and grassy areas in Florida Bay are ground zero for shark fishing adventures.

Shallow-water angling for sharks not only provides a good arm wrestle, but anglers have the opportunity to observe sharks interacting with each other in their natural environment. These trips are very family-friendly and fun for anglers of all ages and abilities.

Our shark fishing techniques vary summer vs. winter due to the difference in water temperature and the venue we fish. During the summer when we fish in Florida Bay, we time our trips according to the tide. In the winter, we fish for sharks at near-shore areas such as bridges and grassy flats and can go any time of the day.

100% catch-and-release shark fishing. All sharks are released unharmed.

Trips cover all fishing licenses, bait, tackle, rods, reels, fish cleaning, FUN and photos of your Florida Keys fishing adventure!

SeaSquared Fishing Reports

A short guide to tipping your boat crew

November 16, 2016

Experienced and knowledgeable boat crews are a critical part of any successful charter fishing vessel.  From preparing the boat, rigging lines, changing bait, pulling that monster bill into the rail, and cleaning your catch their job is relentless and doesn’t end when you return to the dock.  Boat mates are up before sunrise, typically arrive before the […]

What Others are Saying about Florida Keys fishing with Chris

Fun trip

by Joel G January 15, 2016

Captain Jason took me and two others on a reef trip. We caught plenty of good quality fish and I landed a large barracuda which was released. Jason has good people skills and knows fishing. Would book SeaSquared again.

Top Pro

by Lyndon W January 14, 2016

I always get top notch professional charters with SeaSquared. Capt Jason is super knowleageble and will work hard to put you on fish...i had a great trip despite less-than-favorable weather conditions.

Another Awesome Fishing Trip on Sea Squared

October 26, 2015

This is our 3rd time going out with these folks, and, as always, it was an absolute pleasure. We caught a ton of snapper, one trout and even 2 sharks. We had a party of 6, one of which was an 8 year old boy. His dream was to catch a shark and that is EXACTLY what Captain Chris and Jason set about doing toward the end of our day. We have GREAT videos and pics of RC reeling in his shark. At the end of the charter, he turned to his mother and said "THIS WAS THE BEST DAY OF MY LIFE". What more of a testimonial can you ask for? I relayed this remark to the captain and his response was "This is what we do". And he's exactly right. They bend over backwards to make sure you have the most memorable time on board their boat in the lovely Florida Keys. Thank you Captain Chris and Jason for your patience with him (and with us for that matter). We will be back next year, making more outstanding memories. Thanks Christy for handling the details and bringing us our shirts!! 

Dinner and a show is amazing

September 19, 2015

We had a party of 5 that went out with Jason and Shawn, they were ready for our party early and we just got our fishing trip going. The boat was very nice and we all had enough space to move about. We caught 7 sharks and our 8 year old even caught 3. Both captains are passionate and patient as we tried to haul these in. Next we went on to catch 23 snapper, and Jason is a whiz at cleaning fish. We really enjoyed our time and are hooked on Florida keys fishing.

So much respect for Captain Chris and Sea Squared Fishing

September 8, 2015

first off me start by saying I'm a captain myself and was down with some friends for a long Labor Day weekend and Captain Chris came highly recommended.... We wanted to do a trip for Mahi but couldn't find them to save our lives.... so I guess I should be disappointed right? NO WAY!! Captain Christ did everything he could to find us some Mahi even staying out longer than we paid for! We could of stayed where we were and continued to catch tuna but he didn't settle for that and moved countless times to get us what we wanted and that's all I could ask for. this was truly a great trip and Captain Chris is a Great Captain .... P.S. the mates are great too had a chance to talk with everyone a little bit and they all know what they are doing!

Fins, Fun & Sun!!!

August 28, 2015

My wife and four sons flew to Ft. Myers Beach for a 5 day vacation. During that period, we decided to drive across the state to Marathon to fish and snorkel with Seasquared Charters. We are so glad that we did! We started with a shark fishing charter and ended with a lobster snorkeling trip the next day. Jason and Shawn took us out each day and we could not have enjoyed ourselves more. They were very professional and managed to fit right in with our family. We were fortunate enough to land 13 lemon sharks and bring home 8 lobsters (both totals would have been more if not for some amateur mistakes including inadvertent catch and release. LOL The guys were awesome from start to finish. If you are thinking about a charter look these guys up. The results were great but the time on the boat was even better. It was well worth our drive and was the highlight of our vacation. Thanks Jason, Shawn and Seasquared Charters!

Tarpon Fishing at Bahia Honda

June 4, 2015

Some friends visiting from Delaware wanted to go tarpon fishing. Although I fish offshore, I am not geared up for tarpon and suggested they charter up with SeaSquared. We went out the next afternoon (I went along for the ride), and within 20 minutes were hooked up with the first of three tarpon. Deckhand Jason released the boat from the anchor ball and Capt. Chris idled the boat to open water where the tarpon was brought to the boat and released after pictures were taken. We returned to the anchor ball and the scenario was repeated two more times....A great trip....

Tarpon Fishing

May 18, 2015

My wife and i are in our 60's. My severe arthritis was not an issue, due to the crew. This was our first time tarpon fishing. Our fishing experiences were limited to fishing in northern MN. Captain Chris and crew member Jason were exceedingly helpful. My wife got a tarpon on her first drift. She was able to reel it in by herself with minimal help but much encouragement and coaching. I was able to catch 2 tarpon. On our second day, we started out fishing for sea trout, grouper, and snapper. We decided to fish for shark and the crew seamlessly switched over to that tackle. We ended up catching shark and barracuda. It was a blast. Captain Chris and Jason were very knowledgeable concerning conservation of species and educated us on environmental concerns in the Keys. We wholeheartedly recommend this charter company.

AWESOME DAY OF SHARK FISHING

October 12, 2014

We went shark fishing for our first time ever with SeaSquared on Oct 12th of this year. It was an exciting and extremely fun experience that we would highly recommend. We caught 15-20 sharks, we honestly had stopped counting and just had a terrific day! We also went Mangrove Snapper fishing and caught a bunch of fish (which they cleaned) to bring home. Professional, friendly and had just the best day ever!

BEST CHARTER EVER! BEST DAY EVER!

October 6, 2014

This is our second time booking with Seasquared and once you go fishing with them, you realize you have no reason to look any further for a charter. These guys REALLY know their stuff and put you right on the fish. They know what you have hooked on your line WELL before you even bring it up to the surface, just by the way it fights, the twitch of the rod or whatever. ( It's eerie how accurate they are). And when you catch something, they are JUST AS EXCITED as you are, if not more so. They hoot and holler, take photos, get all excited. It really adds to the fun. Chris Johnson and his crew mate Jason are professional, attentive and they know your every need and move on the boat without you having to ask for help. And if one spot isn't producing any fish, they find a new spot. They don't waste your time and money by staying put and saying "oh well, sometimes the fish just don't bite". They TAKE you to where they are biting! We caught our limit of Yellowtail, and also a huge Mutton Snapper, and great big Wahoo. (see photos) We saw a turtle who frequents their chum bag named 'Crush".( LOTS of good photo ops there). We caught a few shark, which they find annoying, as the fishermen do, but we enjoyed seeing and touching them before they were returned to the water. All in all it was an AMAZING, WONDERFUL day that we will talk about to all our friends and co-workers for a long, long time. Try these guys!! Do yourself a favor!<br><br>Teena D

Excellent Experience!

August 11, 2014

I couldn't have picked a better charter! Having 3 teenagers on our annual vacation often leads to interesting adventures and we definitely found it with SeaSquared. The kids and I had joked about doing some shark fishing while on our vacation because...it was "Shark Week"! lol. I decided to do some research and I found Sea Squared and booked it for Monday 8-11-14. We have never fished with a charter so we were a bit nervous however...that easily dissipated upon arrival. Chris and Jason are down to earth people who truly enjoy what they do and you definitely sense that. We caught 9 lemon shark and really enjoyed learning from these guys, so much so we all decided to try our hand at "Bug hunting" er Lobster diving with them 3 days later. We managed to get 6 lobster but what we really caught was the best family memories of trying adventurous new things and Captain Chris and Jason really are great, knowledgeable, fun and I would definitely recommend them to anyone heading to Marathon, FL!<br>Cheers to the "Ballyhoo Bad Boys" Captain Chris "Killer Keys" and Jason "The Sweeper" Bell!!!<br>Thank you for the memories and the experience!<br>The Hook Clan from Milwaukee, WI area!

REALLY GOOD GROUP

We've had the opportunity to charter with the team at Sea Squared and have also recommended them to friends of ours that have ventured to Marathon. As avid fishermen ourselves, we highly recommend Sea Squared to anyone looking for a first class trip on the water!-Claudia S
