The son of a commercial fisherman, Captain John spent many days and nights exploring the many wonders that the lower keys has to offer. Raised on Sugarloaf Key, located between Key West and Big Pine Key, Captain John enjoyed exploring these world-class waters inside and out fishing, diving, and exploring the many islands, channels, creeks, and waterways which make up what is known as the back-country.
With his younger brother James, Captain John would search for new places to fish and dive and would always bring home fish or lobster for their mother to cook.
As Captain John grew up, he began to broaden his explorations beyond the backcountry to fishing and diving reefs, another entirely different ecosystem full of different wonders and fascinating creatures.
As a young man, Captain John earned many commercial licenses and spent the majority of his time fishing and diving for lobster.
In the late 80's, Captain John created his own charter company and has shared his knowledge and experience with others ever since.
Captain John is thankful to call the lower keys home, saying, "this diverse Eco-system has and will forever be a magical place to me".
Come join Captain John for an incredible adventure on the water!

This wasn't our first fishing trip in Key West but it was one of the best, Zack was a great captain, we had an awesome time. While other boats in the vicinity had limited luck Zack had us on fish all day. I can highly recommend Captain Experiences ...Read More you will not regret it, five stars all the way, thanks again from the Charleston, SC. foursome.
We had a fantastic trip with captain David. He was patient with 2 beginners. We caught our limit with snapper and finished the day with a 20lbs Cobia
One of the best guides we’ve had! Captain Chris was energetic, funny, knowledgeable, efficient, and overall so patient. When you’re on a boat for 4+ hours, you hope the other person is great. We had a great time, caught a ton of snapper, and I appreciated all of his funny ...Read More anecdotes and knowledge about the water. I swear the guy never stopped hustling to get that bait on your hook, he was like a machine. Thank you for the experience and we’d book with him again
We had an amazing time on our trip. Our first trip with another company was canceled that morning and I was able to book another trip the same day. The lady at Captain Experiences helped me find something for my family. Then we absolutely loved the fishing and Captain Zac. ...Read More He helped everyone catch a fish! I would definitely recommend!
Had a good time only thing wrong with the trip was the wind. had to hide in the mangroves but caught some fish
First of all, it was a beautiful day, so we lucked out there. We met captain Brandon at the dock. Truthfully, our first impression, was not 5 stars. It may have been early and the Captain seemed a bit short on details and not very responsive. ...Read More However, after we found out fishing spot, the Captain seem to become more cordial to us. My son, who is on the spectrum, was quite and pretty upset when everyone else caught Fish. Captain Brandon did not let him quit and was very good with him. He was able to catch 2 Red Snappers, and would gotten a 3rd but the line snapped. It was a great day for all and Captain Brandon was awesome. I would recommend this fishing charter to anyone, if you are a first-timer (like us) or a veteran angler that wants to go to the best spots to catch fish in Key West! A great time was had by all!
I came down here for my 50th birthday to do a little fishing and have a good time. My wife and I were teamed up with Captian Zac on my birthday and it couldn't have been more perfect. The weather was amazing, and Zac got us on fish near a ...Read More wrecked ship. We fought some Yellow Jack, Nurse Sharks, Goliath Grouper, Permit, had a shot at a Bull shark, and were harassed by Baraccuda the whole time. This trip has started in an amazing way, and my hat is off to these guys who do their best to put customers on the fish. Today, they did, and it made my birthday. Thank you again Zac!
We could not ask for a better fishing experience! Very knowledgeable and hospitable. Chris put us on the fish all day long! Thanks Captain John for such a great charter service! We had an absolute blast! Three of my friends had never been on a charter and there first one ...Read More today was a success!
