ABOUT Seaborn Charters| our history
read| OUR STORY
Jesse Stavola is a lifelong fisherman from the north east who often travels to Key West to get some fishing done in warmer and more relaxing conditions. At a local restaurant for fisherman and the like, Captain Jesse and Captain Jason began talking about fishing. Upon hearing that Captain Jason was a native guide, Jesse decided to give it a try. Now, over ten years later, and after countless fishing trips — and a lot of awesome catches — they decided to team up and start their own charter fishing company in Key West. They have a great boat with the best fishing gear on the market. Add to that 70 years of combined experience and you’re sure to have an awesome trip with Seaborn Charters!
ABOUT| our captain
meet| CAPTAIN JASON BREWER
Captain Jason Brewer is a 2nd generation Key West fisherman. Captain Jason started following in his father’s footsteps at the age of 12, making long range commercial fishing trips from Key West to the dry Tortugas anywhere from 5-12 days at a time, as a commercial handliner (fisherman who use only their bare hands and arms to bring the fish to the boat. Captain Jason started commercial fishing full time in 1988. For 5 years he decided to be a Key West charter fisherman. Being a great people person, Captain Jason quickly adapted to charter fishing, gaining a reputation as a dependable, hard working fisherman, winning several tournaments and consistently being in the top ten producers worldwide for catching trophy fish, and most recently being captain of the month for grey taxidermy, July 2015.
Captain Jason has fished the Key West waters an average of 300 days a year for the past 27 years. He customizes every charter to best meet the people’s expectations, explaining the odds of catching this fish or that fish to make “your” trip the best it can be. Whether you’re a first-timer or a seasoned veteran, Captain Jason will get you hooked up! So come to Key West and let’s go fishing!

“Have fished with Capt. Jason for 20+ years now”

Just returned from my latest Key West trip to visit my parents. Have an awesome time fishing with Seaborn Charters and Capt. Jason for 2 days. We have fished with Jason for 20+ years - that has to tell you something. I have not met a harder working captain (and we've fished with a lot) in all my years of going to Key West. Capt. Jason works his butt off to have his clients busy reeling fish in; but best of all, he with listen to what his clients want to catch and work to make it happen. Can't say enough positive things about Seaborn Charter and Capt. Jason - there just isn't any better fishing experience in Key West!!!

Headed out on a 8 hr trip with Jesse offshore 25-28 miles. Could not have ask for a better captain or mate,great guy's. We were trolling hooked up with plenty of mahi and quite a few sightings of sails. The boats and equipment are top of the line. Will definitely be back to hook up on the winter bite.

My wife and I stumbled across Captain Jason at the marina one day of our vacation. We had a nice talk and got a good vibe, so we decided to book a 4 hour trip since he happened to have an opening. Little did we know that we were about to have an unforgettable experience! We caught tuna, amberjack, bonita, and a 6.5 foot bull shark! It was amazing! In addition to the fishing, we got the "eco-tour" on the way out and the backcountry tour on the way in. Been fishing for 30+ years, and this was possibly the best trip... We'll be coming back! Great person, unbelievable skills and wonderful boat/equipment.
