ABOUT US

WHY GULFSTREAM?


Our Key West Party Boat Fishing Charter is the longest running deep sea fishing charter in Key West, Florida, catching payloads of fish since 1947.

The 58-foot Key West Party Boat Fishing Charter motors up to 60 passengers swiftly out to deep-sea fishing spots thanks to twin Detroit 8v92 turbo engines. Once anchored, the ship’s amenities—which include men’s and women’s restrooms and a galley serving snacks—keep anglers comfortable between casts. Our friendly Captains and mates are happy to assist first-time fishermen and even seasoned professionals to make the most of their fishing experience.

Imagine the lightning-like stripe down the side of a yellowtail snapper or the marbled, almost serpentine pattern on a black grouper. The waters off the Florida Keys teem with such visually stunning marine life, and the crew of Key West Party Boat Fishing Charter knows how to catch them!


MEET THE CREW

Jamie J Captain 100 ton

Captain Jamie J. Snediker is originally from Freeport, NY, where she was an international flight attendant and a mate on a party boat for many years before moving to Key West in 2007. Fishing and Key West were a perfect fit for her dreams to come true.

Jamie’s son, T.J., once said, “my mom loves her boat more than she loves me!” (giggling, of course). She has been fortunate enough to have this team working with her and considers them family. Captain Jamie also owns Southernmost Tattoo on Duval Street.

Jamie served as the President of the Key West Charter Boat Association in 2010-2013 and is currently the Vice President.

Perry Captain 200 Ton

Perry is a mechanical genius. If its broken he can fix it. Originally from Kentucky, he moved to Key West to live on his amazing vessel “Ghost Ship”. Perry is always smiling and fun of laughter. He has been a captain onboard the Gulfstream IV since 2017.
Perry recently obtained his 200 Ton Master Captain License and has plans to sail the 7 seas. But for now, if you are lucky enough to fish with him, he will keep you in the waters surrounding Key West.

David Canfield Captain

Captain Dave is from Destin, FL and began his saltwater fishing addiction at the age of 4 and broke in his first boat at the age of 8 in Destin Harbor, FL.  “Once the sea gets in your soul, you can never shake it. Who would want to?”

Dave was a firefighter in Orange Beach, Alabama as well as a Vessel Rescue Operator. He ran his own charter business called FISHIN’ MAGICIAN for many years before calling Key West home. He resides on a beautiful Catamaran. If you ask him about it on the way out, he will point it out to you.

Angela Canfield Galley Operations

Angela is from Trussville, Alabama and has been married to Captain David for over 20 years and no matter where they spent their time, the ocean has always called them back.  They have made their home here in Key West aboard a beautiful Catamaran. She loves to fish and to pass her experience onto the next generation. It has been said many times that her Blackened Snapper Sandwich are the best on the island. Prior to dedicating her life to the Gulfstream she was the owner/operator/deckhand on the Fishin’ Magician in Orange Beach, Alabama.  She provides the best customer service across the 7 seas, hands down!

BAD KYLE Menace

Bad Kyle has been with Gulfstream Fishing since late 2017. He appeared one night without explanation and has been causing trouble on just about every trip. He has been known to steal your bait, eat your food, cut your line, jump overboard, cause engine issues, write on your face if you fall asleep, and a list of countless other annoying things. He has been known to miss the boat a few times. We had to stop letting him answer the Gulfstream phones because he has a terrible habit of giving bad directions. If you see him during your trip watch out! Make sure you get a photo with him and tag #badkyle on Instagram. He thinks he famous!
