Key Largo Charter Recommendation?
 
My oldest son is turning 13, and we're going to do a special father-son Keys trip. We won't be down long, probably gonna have to keep it to the weekend only due to other time off work recently.

I don't have a boat anymore, plan to drive down on a Friday, dive on Sat, travel back Sun.

Planning for late August.

Here's the thing: I want him to get to sightsee-dive a nice reef, and also to catch a few lobster for the family, and then maybe get to fish (H&L or spearfish) a little, all on a full-day charter.

Anyone know a charter captain who could do it? One tank on a reef, some shallow lobster, and some fishing seems not impossible in a day.

I used to frequent the Summerland area in my childhood, but I was thinking Key Largo as I havent been there and it's supposed to have nicer reefs???

Thanks!

You can Google Forever Young charters. They cover from Key Largo to Marathon. Have 2 different size fast boats. Pretty sure they can fill your 3 requests in a day.

Tyson, glad I could help. Hope, you and your son have a great time. Perhaps you can post a video of your charter.

I have an old GoPro but never figured out a mount for it, so I've never really used it underwater. Tried once on a head strap and found it floating off before I realized it had slipped loose....

But this is an awesome opportunity for something like that, so I'll have to try again somehow

Definitely will post a report, definitely photos, and maybe maybe video...

Lycra hood over your head strap would solve that issue if you don't want to get a mask with built in go pro mount.

I'm thinking about using some E6000 to stick a GoPro mount onto my mask frame. Or maybe just use a GoPro handle, should work for lobstering
