Owner description: We are a private, custom and casual charter company based here in Key West. We offer fishing, snorkeling, responsible dolphin watching, sandbar hopping, sunset cruises, film and water production and more! Our 26 foot Angler PANGA was carefully chosen for our unique Key's water experiences. We can easily travel into the shallow protected waters of the Gulf side mangrove islands and flats to the North. We can also comfortably cruise the open waters, reefs, and shipwrecks of the Caribbean to the South. We have spent the last 10 years exploring these amazing waters and look forward to sharing this experience with you. Every charter is unique- call now to create yours!

My girlfriends and I travelled to Key West about a month after Hurricane Irma for a bachelorette party. A day on the water was planned, and we were so glad the boat survived the storm unscathed and that we had absolutely perfect weather! The plan was originally to snorkel and hang out on a sandbar, but the water was churned up and visibility was too low for us to go snorkeling. Honestly, I'm not sure I would have been able to tear my friends away from the relaxing on the sandbar so it worked out fine in the end.

Jeremy was so communicative before the trip. He had a large cooler with ice ready for us when we arrived, and after we loaded our things into his spacious and sparkling new boat, we headed straight to beautiful Snipes Point. We were one of the first groups there, and Jeremy had the music going for us immediately. The rest of the day was entirely about hanging out in the sunshine in the most beautiful place I could possibly imagine. The group consensus was that this was absolutely the highlight of our trip.

My last and most important note is that Jeremy was happy and more than willing to take any insta, snap, boomerang (yes, he has been instructed in the art of the boomerang), you name it kind of photo that we asked. He was the nicest guy, and when I come back to Key West I will absolutely be going out with him again!

We are a family of six with children ages 16, 14, 11, and 8. Captain Jeremy planned a fun, half-day trip for us. All our children reeled in countless numbers of fish, we caught two fish that he cleaned and we took to the Hogfish restaurant and ate for lunch, and we concluded our trip by shark fishing and hooking a 6 foot bull shark.

Captain Jeremy knows the area, loves teaching people about the island and the different types of fish, and is a really nice guy.

Thanks for the great experience and we'll be booking another trip if we find ourselves in Key West again!

Jeremy , the owner of Zia Charters, is the coolest most knowledgeable guy I have met on the island. Two times now we have chartered Jeremy. It is all about YOU. Where to you want to go back mangroves, front side on the reefs? Your choice! Are you comfortable? Must have heard him ask that at least three times! What do you want to catch or see? Well.....what we caught was great, what we saw was great, what we learned was great! This charter is great!!!!! Thank you Jeremy from your Dog Gone Crazy friends.

This is our fourth booking with Zia Charters, and frankly there is no one else that we want to go out to sea with. If you are fishing...he will find the right spot for the day! If you are out for a sunset cruise he will take you to the perfect location.

On top of that...Captain Jeremy is just a great guy to hang out with! Thanks Captain Jeremy!! See you next year!
