About Your Hosts

  • Key West fishing guide Captain Chris Mendola has over 25 years of experience fishing and diving the waters offshore Key West and the Florida Keys. Key West is located between the Gulf of Mexico and Florida Straits, and because of its location there are many different species of fish. The Gulf of Mexico is loaded with old ship wrecks which are home to a variety of Snapper, Grouper, Jacks, Permit, African Pompano, Cobia, and King Mackerel just to name a few! On the Atlantic side is one of the biggest barrier reefs in the world and is home to thousands of different fish species. Fishing the reefs offshore Key West is great fun and usually results in catching a mixed bag of edible fish. Captain Chris spends much of his time fishing offshore, targeting big game fish including Tuna, Wahoo, Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, Marlin, and Swordfish. He's won multiple offshore tournaments in Key West, and the Bahamas. Daytime fishing for sword fish is one of Chris's specialties. He's also a very experienced free diver, scuba diver, and spear fisherman. It would be his pleasure to take you out on the fishing adventure of a lifetime!
