Great experience! We had a blast fishing with the family. Steve was fun, polite & took the time to teach us! I also forgot my AirPods on the boat & he was nice enough to bring them to our hotel the next morning 🫶🏻 Thank you Steve!

Captain John was awesome! He was super upfront about water conditions and left all the decisions to us. Had a quick backup plan for us since there were 7-9 foot seas offshore. Caught some fish waiting out the weather and then put us on the fish we were after! 10/10 ...Read More

We booked with John, but when we arrived John wasn’t there, and he’d arranged for a guy named Steve to take us out. This was a bit of a surprise and not who I’d chosen based on reviews. We’ve been fishing in Key West for several years and this was ...Read More

Captain John and his first mate were absolutely amazing. Super knowledgeable and made my first deep sea fishing trip truly something to remember. Caught a ton of dolphin and had a great time. I will definitely plan another trip and would highly recommend him to everyone.

Captain Steve filled in for John and definitely found the fish including a few sharks and barracuda who liked our fish as well! Continuous action and heading to Pepe’s to have them cook some mutton snapper and yellow jack for us. Definitely recommend them!
