The boat is secured to the dock and doesn’t leave. There is NO cooking on this boat.  We also do not allow children under 15 to stay on the houseboats.

Wake up on the water as you watch the sunrise over the Atlantic ocean! We have a minimum of a 2 night stay on the Swordfish Houseboat.

5 star ratingParking is tough. Great place to see the birds waiting for fish leftovers! Took cloud nine out for 1/2 day fishing charter. Had gear time with capt Eric and first mate Jordon. Went out to alligator reef and caught a bunch if nice yellow tail snapper. Then the crew cleaned up the fish for us and got us a reservation at his friends restaurant - chef Micheal's north of marina. Dinner with our fresh catch was awesome!! Thanks capt Eric and Jordan!

5 star ratingI was there on a 2 day backcountry fishing trip with my 18 year old son. We had Capt John Johansen the first day and captain Ted Wilson the second day. We caught a tarpon and quite a few sharks. We had a most pleasurable trip and hope to do it again soon. Captain John and Captain Ted thank you for a great time on the water. You represent Bud and Mary's very well. I hope to see you guys soon!

5 star ratingHad a great time aboard the Miss Islamorada !! Super professional and friendly crew !! The captain was awesome. He explained everything in detail. He was always ready to answer a question or help you while we were anchored. The mates were the best I have ever encountered on a party boat !! Seth and Essex went far and above to make sure everyone caught fish and had a great time. So professional !! They seemed to be everywhere at once !! This boat may not have all the amenities some look for, like an air conditioned cabin and food for sale on board, but the Miss Islamorada is a serious fishing machine. Fast and stable. Leaves and arrives on time, 30 people max on the boat, which makes for an awesome mate to passenger ratio. I think there were about 20 people on my trip. Again, best mates I have seen yet. The mates provided us a variety of baits like ballyhoo, squid, and shrimp. They even hooked me up with live baits. Lots of action !! This boat also does not allow the stern to be reserved like many party boats I have been on. That is awesome. The mates split us up into 3 groups and rotated us to the stern where they had chummed the water. They gave us all spinning reels and shrimp for bait and we slayed the mangrove and yellowtail snappers !! Best part for me. So much fun. We also took turns drift fishing for yellowtail with shrimp and sinking chum balls. Crazy fun !! Everyone caught fish. The mates and captain also gladly filleted our fish and bagged them up for us. Thank you to the Captain and Crew of the Miss Islamorada. Great experience. I will return.
