The charter boat fishing options can vary greatly depending on the type of fish you're pursuing.   The most popular options include:

Light Tackle Key West Fishing- Guides who specialize in Light Tackle Sport Fishing use lighter poles and test line making the fishing much more challenging and sporting.

Key West Deep Sea / Off Shore Fishing Guides & Charter Boats -  These types of charter boats will usually travel a fair distance from land and will fish for larger species like Blue Marlin.  They also will focus on fishing in much deeper water just like the description says.

Backcountry Flats Fishing Guides will specialize in sight fishing the extremely shallow and clear water areas of the back water flat areas the keys are known for.
A good example would be chasing the elusive bonefish or even tarpon.
Lady Barracuda Fishing.
