Environmental Awareness


About

Shooting Offshore, LLC began operations in Key West in 2019. We operate out of the Key West Seaport in the Galleon Marina at slip #32 which is right at the cut on the seawall. The Galleon Marina is located at 619 Front Street, Key West FL, 33040.

This excursion can be tailored to both beginner and advanced shooters alike, so we encourage everybody to come out and give it a shot. We will make certain you are comfortable and have an enjoyable time.

For equipment, we currently run a twin hull 26-foot Glacier Bay, with twin Suzuki 150 hp engines that can accommodate six passengers per trip. We have custom built a shooting stand that provides all around hands-free support for the ultimate in Customer sand shooter safety. We have multiple shotguns to choose from including Remington, Benelli, Ithaca, Mossberg in 12 and 20 gauge. If you have a favorite shotgun, you are welcome to bring your own. We supply only 12 and 20 gauge ammunition. Nothing but shotguns are permitted to be discharged from the boat - no pistols, no hunting rifles, no long rifles of any kind.

We are very conscious of the environmental impact and put nothing toxic in the water. Our ammunition is US Fish and Wildlife approved for waterfowl hunting, contains no lead, no plastics, and we capture all the shells after shooting rounds to make sure they stay in the boat. The load in our rounds is steel and will quickly and safely deteriorate in the salt-water seas. We use bio-degradable White Flyer clay pigeons that are non-toxic and disintegrate within hours of entering the water.

Our clay pigeon thrower is a state-of-the-art Atlas AT150 Commercial Series. It is electric and fully automated allowing a variety of pitches, directions, and speeds. This allows us to adjust the level of difficulty for every type of shooter - from beginner to advanced. We want everybody to hit all their shots!
