We have TWO boats available for daytime swordfish charters at the world famous Bud N’ Mary’s Marina in Islamorada, Florida Keys.

Broad Minded

The “Broad Minded” is a 2016 37′ Freeman Boatworks powered by twin 350 Yamaha outboards. Capt. Nick Stanczyk wanted more fishing time and less travel time, so with a 30+ knot cruise you’ll be fishing in no time! It’s a catamaran center console, so either you can use stand up tackle to hand crank fish, hand crank fish out of the rod holder, or use an electric reel in the rod holder. For seating there is a coffin box, a co captains chair, and multiple bean bags. There is a small head inside the console for the ladies as well.

Bud N Mary's Boat


The Bn’M is our classic swordfishing boat at Bud n’ Mary’s Marina. Capt. Charlie Scoble caught his first Islamorada daytime swordfish in 2003 with the Stanczyk’s! The boat is a 34′ crusader express with bench seating and twin yanmar diesel engines. It has a fighting chair in a large cockpit, a small bathroom downstaris, two coolers for your food and drinks, and a large fish box. The Bn’M runs $1,800 per day for a swordfish trip.

Other fish we catch

The more time you dedicate to swordfishing the better your shot of success, but other fish are still a possilibity while fishing offshore. Spring through early fall we catch mahi coming and going to the swordfish grounds, even while we are swordfishing. Blackfin tuna can be caught on the humps that time of year. We do some deep dropping for tilefish, grouper, barrelfish, queen snapper based on the time of year as well. And have a few pictures showing the other fish we catch.

Swordfishing has very little bycatch, but occasionally we get a pomfret, oilfish, alfonsino, and even shark.
