The whole experience was wonderful. I have been on numerous fishing trips in the Keys as well as Mexico, Bahamas and Costa Rica and this one was definitely one to remember. Not only did we catch fish (which is always a bonus) but the kids had a great time (first off-shore trip for my daughter) just talking with Mark and Taylor and leaning techniques and tricks of the trade. I would recommend them to anyone. Thanks for a great trip guys.
Totally awesome. We wanted to start out earlier than eight a.m. and BOOM…we agreed to a 6:30 a.m. start. We arrived at 6:35 and off we went. REALLY! They we’re ready to go…no waiting, no delays. Michelle (wife of Mark who is the owner and captain) is the nicest and very informative. She never made us feel it was all about the money, very easy transaction. Although there were never any guarantees to catch fish, there was a guarantee that Captain Mark and first hand John would do all they could to give us the best chances. These two are locals (conchs) and have been in the business for forever. Within 45 minutes I reeled in a large Black fin tuna which was between 15 & 20 lbs!! WOW what fun. The day was beautiful but a little windy. We got a number of hits from mackerel (we think) and we listened to the chatter on the radios which indicated others were not having luck. Just when Nick and I thought we were coming back with one Black fin tuna,. A huge hit occurred and OMG Nick landed a sailfish (about 70-75 lbs). BEAUTIFUL and injury free and set free at the boat. MARK and JOHN worked hard and it was all for our beneficial experience. We highly recommend COWBOY COWGIRL Charters in Key West. You will have the best charter experience because of the knowledge, expertice and “customer first” attitude of the entire team. THANK YOU MARK, MICHELLE AND JOHN and your Charter Boats!
Absolutely the best charter ever! Highly recommend this professional crew who found and helped us catch many fish on our bucket list, and went the extra mile to give us a delightful day on the water. Cowboy/Cowgirl charters are a first rate outfit, the owners and crew are awesome folks who strive to please their customers. Many thanks to Mark, Michelle, Shawn and John for a trip we will never forget!
