At the crack of dawn your boat and crew will be ready with everything necessary for an unforgettable day of fishing in the “Sportfishing Capital of World”.

You can rest assured that a very memorable day awaits you when you book a charter with the world famous Bud N’ Marys fishing fleet.

Bud N’ Mary’s Fishing Marina, which has been located in Islamorada, the heart of the Florida Keys since 1944, can truly be called the “Sportfishing Capital of the World.”

It’s geographical location is totally unique in that it offers a broad spectrum of fishing which can be found no where else in the world. In fact, nearly every species of salt water gamefish in this hemisphere can be caught within proximity of Islamorada, Florida.

If you’re thinking about Miami Offshore Fishing, remember it’s not too much of a further drive south to Islamorada!

Check out our Florida Fishing Charters and find a trip that’s right for you. Due to our location, we can reach many fishing areas that are inaccesible anywhere else in the keys!

Blue water anglers employ everything from fly tackle to trolling gear to challenge the depths of the azure blue waters of the Gulf Stream for acrobatic Sailfish, Marlin, powerful Tuna, blue/green/golden hued Dolphin, razor-toothed Wahoos, giant Tiger and Hammerhead Sharks, and iridescent King mackerel.

 

Florida Dolphin Fishing is absolutely spectacular in summer months, and the winter brings great Islamorada sailfish weather!

Deep water reefs offer tackle breaking giant Groupers and delicious Yellowtail Snappers.

With seasonal runs overlapping, there’s always a wide variety of exciting fishing to leave anglers with a lifetime of memories.

From novice to experts, Bud N’ Mary’s Marina has something to offer everyone throughout the year.

What Our Customers Say…

  •   A full day out fishing. Dress in layers as the morning is cool, but afternoon gets warm. Bring hats and suntan lotion.
    Everyone caught a lot of fish- the crew made it easy and fun. After the trip they sorted the fish, filleted it for us and recommended several restaurants to cook it for us. It was a great day.

  •   Captain Nick Stanczyk is an absolutely fabulous guide and captain. He knew where to fish which put onto a giant fish very quickly. Then he never took his eyes off the line and kept the boat properly placed for the duration of an 8 hour plus fight. In the end, we landed a record size swordfish of over 757 pounds. As experienced captains ourselves we cannot say enough positive things about Capt. Nick, his boat or and his crew. In addition, Bud n Mary’s knows how to treat fisherman of all levels. The Galley Girls Cafe located at Bud n Mary’s puts together great early am breakfast in plenty of time to make the boat departures and their lunch boxes are excellent as well. If you are looking for great day trips or a trip of a lifetime Capt. Nick Stanczyk and Bud n Mary’s is the place to go.

  •   Our family enjoyed two half day fishing trips in March 2019, while on vacation in The Keys. Both our Captains were exceptional and we highly recommended them! The trips were out of Bud n’ Mary’s Marina. One trip booked through the captain ahead of time and one booked through the marina the day before. The first trip was with Captain Mike Walter, in search of a big tarpon to fulfill our daughter Chelsea’s Bucket List. Captain Mike immediately put us on the tarpon and Chelsea was thrilled with the fight of her 80 pounder. The second trip with Captain Dave Peck was for a variety of different species and we caught a lot of fish, which we enjoyed. But the last fish of the day was the highlight and we will remember it as “The Fish of a Lifetime” a 250 lb Goliath Grouper! It truly was an Amazing Experience! More

  •   My husband and I visited Bud and Mary's to grab some bait for our 5th anniversary fishing day trip the beginning of the month. Super friendly and happy people, we're very helpful to point out a nice spot to go fishing, and supplied us with great shrimp bait. Food smelled great but it was early so we plan to come back and try it. The property was super clean, including the dock. There were a lot of charters out that morning and a few visitors milling around. They have a small school of tarpon and nurse sharks and some pelicans hanging around wait for scraps, and you can purchase food to feed them. Really want to jump on a charter next time we come down! They also have a dive shop that had a huge selection of gear, but was closed for lunch while we were there. Great place, we will be back.
