Forget that we didn't catch many fish, and the few we did weren't the fish we went after. The boat, although seaworthy, needed lots of maintenance on the interior. Dirty, very worn, stuff laying around, windows dirty. When we approached the boat, the Captain was upset that he hadn't been fueled yet (no big deal, because it got done), didn't want to use the material supplied to me to pay, spent the entire trip topside not conversing with us, and disappeared immediately after docking in a personal vehicle. The Crew handled all the fishing and spent no time talking to us. Just handed a pole to someeone when it needed to be brought in. Crew did a very good jpb cleaning the few fish we did catch and recommended a restaurant to cook them. I guess for the money spent, I expected some human interaction and discussion of what was going on and how we could help. Our fault? We were all new to this experience, and that was known before the day we went out. We didn't really even know to expect, but likely will not do something like this again.

The captain that won’t quit! Enjoyed a 3/4 day shared trip that started off slow. Despite being a beautiful day & many rigs in the water, the fish were shy. No worries though, because Captain Mark and mate John knew what to do. We ended up catching a few beauties & had a great time. Will book with them again the next time.

Had a great trip with a few friends. Trolling for the fish we initially wanted to catch was limited due to seaweed, but the captains were knowledgeable and adjusted for the conditions, and did their best to put us on some nice fish. It was clear they wanted us to catch fish and did everything they could to make our trip fun.

My sister Tracy and I went out fishing on the Sanctuary. The captain, Mark and his mate, Niles we spectacular. We had a fabulous day, caught yellowtail snapper, mackerel and mutton snapper, Niles and Mark were patient and kind, played great music and put us on the fish! We caught 12 in all, had to throw the groupers back (not in season). Then Niles cleaned the fish and we took 1/3 to a restaurant which cooked them for us, yummy. The rest were share with Captain Mark and Niles. I would highly recommend this team. Thank you guys.

My family and I had an awesome time with. Capt. Phil. The boat was clean and no fishy smell. He took us to a spot that has non stop action catching mahi mahi Dophin and a barracuda. He was friendly, super chill and an expert at sea. My kids love him. We definitely will ring him up next time we're in key west. Thank you! We had a blast at sea today.

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.

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. This is 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!

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. 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!
