We had an amazing time with "Off the Charts" charter and Captain Joe was fantastic! He has a very easy going, friendly personality and it was easy to see he aims to please his customers. He was also extremely patient with my kids and seemed to enjoy teaching them some of his fishing techniques. While my boys have been fishing their whole lives, this was their first time trolling. They loved every minute, especially reeling in their fist Mahi Mahi! I was very satisfied and would highly recommend him for your fishing adventure. We may have just been another charter family for him, but he will live infinitely in our Key West vacation memories!

Great trip. Great captain. We were on the meat within the first half hour of the trip and caught our limit. He did an awesome job cleaning the fish that it was ready to be cooked when we got home. Very personable with lots of knowledge.

We had a 4 hour fishing tour, Capt Joe was right on time, he was friendly and fun, had a cooler with ice and great music and most importantly, he knew where the fish were! We caught fish the entire trip and got this nice Spanish Mackrel near the end, lots of Snapper varieties as well, it was so much fun, will look him up again next time we go! And he was affordable compared to some others that are very high dollar, we really appreciated this trip.
