Welcome to Andy Griffiths Fishing Charters IN Key West, Florida
We have been fishing Key West, the Marquesas Keys and the Dry Tortugas for more than 25 years. Dry Tortugas fishing trips have become popular among avid fisherman and families who want a different type of Florida Vacation. Andy Griffiths Charters offers 2-day and 3-day Fishing Charters from Key West to the Dry Tortugas National Park. We use the Dry Tortugas islands as our central location but fish a distance from the Ft. Jefferson area on patch coral reefs and wrecks. Fishing in the Dry Tortugas yields many species of fish including Mutton Snapper, Yellowtail Snapper, Mangrove Snapper, Grouper, Cobia, Amberjack, Kingfish, Sharks and Barracudas. On our way to Ft. Jefferson we may choose to troll baits for a while for Mahi Mahi, Sailfish, Wahoo and Tuna.

About the Dry Tortugas
The Dry Tortugas National Park is made up of seven small islands situated 70 miles west of Key West Florida. The area is famous for it's pristine coral reefs, wrecks, white sandy beaches, bird watching, marine life and legends of pirates and sunken treasure.
It is truly an unspoiled destination due to being the most remote and least visited national park in the USA. Fort Jefferson, the largest of the 19 th century coastal forts is the centerpiece of the park. Ponce De Leon discovered these islands in 1513 and named them “Las Tortugas” (Spanish for Turtles) because of the abundance of sea turtles and loggerhead turtles that he observed there. While the turtles provided fresh meat to sustain his crew, there was no fresh water on the islands so he added “Dry” to the name. It is also suggested that mariners added the work “dry” to navigation charts to warn of the lack of fresh water on the islands. The Dry Tortugas National Park is over 100 square miles of tropical ocean and shallow reefs.
Key West Accommodations
The best part about your 2-day or 3-day fishing trip to the Marquesas Keys or Dry Tortugas is that your charter boat is your hotel room. You have the best seat in the house for a beautiful sunset or sunrise and there is snorkeling and fishing right outside the cabin door. Although in the past it may be thought of as a hard core fishing trip, the fishing charters that are run by our captains are for the entire family. All of our boats have a variety of amenities including cold A/C, fresh water (hot and cold) shower, a large galley, comfortable bunks, rod racks and a shaded area for fishing. More »
Dry Tortugas Fishing
Fishing in the Dry Tortugas area is our specialty. We pride ourselves in having some of the most knowledgeable captains. These captains are professional and most have spent time fishing commercially in the Key West area. The Dry Tortugas area offers a special fishing advantage; the pressure is minimal by recreational fisherman. Therefore there are larger fish and they are willing to eat and fight hard. There are only a few select charter boats out of Key West that are licensed to take trips to the Dry Tortugas National Park. More »
Marquesas Keys Fishing
The Marquesas is approximately 22 miles from Key West Harbor. This
natural atoll is a great place for an overnight fishing trip and
offers both deep sea fishing on patch coral reefs and wrecks. Being
that the Marquesas Keys are West of Key West, it offers a range of
fishing further to the West to an area that cannot be reached by
a Key West charter boat that only goes for a one day excursion.
