Had an amazing trip with Captain Paul Johnson and excellent deck hand John. We would recommend Paul, John, and Reef Runner to all looking to book an offshore trip.

Captain Paul and First Mate John were awesome. Captain Paul found fish quickly and after a school of Mahi would pass, he was able to find another quickly. John worked his butt off hooking up bait for the next school and changing lines as needed. Definitely a great time with ...Read More

Awesome fishing trip with captain Paul and John! Knowledgeable and very helpful! Got a lot of fish on and came back with some mahi! Cleaned out fish and filleted. Got recommendations on where to take our fish to eat and who to see to send our fish back home!

The best fishing trip I’ve had. Highly recommend Reef Runner. Caught 8 Mahi-mahi. In 6 hours along with other fish.

Capt. Paul and his mate John make the perfect team. The expertise and knowledge in which they performed their job made for an extremely successful and pleasant experience. We will definitely book a trip with Capt. Paul and John the next time we are in the keys.

My family and I here in Tavernier for vacation, this fishing trip was the main reason to vacation in the Keys. Our outing did not disappoint. Captain Paul and John were a pleasure to spend the day with. We all caught plenty of Mahi Mahi and Tuna. I highly recommend.

Captain Paul and team were awesome. I’ve fished a lot of places and personality/attitude can make or break a trip. After all, it’s fishing and not catching so having a captain and crew with a good personality goes a long way to set the day. We enjoyed both the crew ...Read More

Fishing was tough, but we found a couple. Capt Paul def knows what he is doing and is very laid back and just wanted us all to have a good time. We would fish with him and Christian again any day. Great guys.

Wow - what an amazing fishing adventure! We have been on several private charters out of Islamorada in the past, and this was the absolute best.

Captain and 1st mate were very welcoming and knowledgeable of the waters. My family had a great time and really enjoyed how big the deck area was on the boat. Plenty of shade and sun and still in on the action when the fish hit the baits.
