Lightbulb 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.

Re: Key Largo Charter Recommendation?

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

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
