Key West adventure guide, Captain Aaron Young a.k.a. "Dibs", is a born-and-bred waterman. He was born and raised fishing and diving the waters off South Florida and the Florida Keys. In 2013, he decided to make the permanent move to Key West and follow his dream of fishing for a living. When he is not guiding clients, he is commercially fishing and diving and selling his fresh catch to the local fish markets. Aaron's favorite trips include: offshore fishing, spearfishing and daytime sword-fishing. Aaron prides himself on his customer service, and looks forward to the opportunity of showing you what Key West has to offer!
I've been out with Capt Aaron twice now and have a 3rd trip booked. Both trips I mentioned a fish species I'd never caught and that I'd like to. Both trips he put me on those fish effortlessly. He puts in the work and will burn a tank of gas to get you what you want.
This was one of the best days I’ve had in the Keys and I’ve lived here for two years. Caption Aaron is so nice and is very knowledgeable about the local environment. Everything about this fishing charter was amazing and I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants an awesome experience in Key West!
So impressed with Captain Aaron! Knowledgeable, safe, fun and friendly! I have been out with other captains and have finally found the one I will continue to book trips through! Thank you for a great day on the water!
We has a great time with Capt. Aaron. We were able to catch several fish and had fun going after the big barracuda. We brought home a decent catch. We will go again!
We had a great time with Captain Aaron with 4 teenage boys on a spearfishing adventure. We caught lots of fish including a very cool hog fish. The boys were very happy and I felt he did a great job of making sure the boys were taught how to properly use the equipment and stayed safe. Lots of fun and fish on Key West! And thanks for the tips on how to fry the fish! The hog fish was delicious!
Broadbill swordfish are one of the most sought after billfish in the ocean. Using electric reel we target these seamonsters in depths of 1400 - 2000 ft of water.
Patience and persistence is a must!
Relax at one of the beautiful sandbars Key West has to offer!
Whether you're a seasoned veteran or just want to give it a try, we will show you what spearfishing Key West is all about!
