Guided by Carlos Iriban
Invasive Species Lake
I’m a Florida native here in Palm Beach who grew up on the water. Fishing, hunting, diving, surfing, and enjoying wildlife and nature here in our area has always been a passion of mine. I’ve worked on many boats from saltwater to freshwater. In February 2015, I received my 100-ton Captain License. I’m a certified Firefighter- paramedic and really enjoy helping people. I love being able to put a smile on a customer's face when they catch a fish and seeing their excitement when they reel in something they have never caught before. I like to give a lot of information about wildlife and history here in south Florida. This fishing charter service is very family oriented and welcomes all ages and groups. It will provide an experience that you will never forget!
Captain Carlos' freshwater charters allow you to catch a variety of species, you don't just target one. Some common catches include peacock bass, largemouth bass and clown knife fish. These trips are extremely consistent and can produce all day action. All too often, he puts his client on so many fish that trips are called early by his clients because their arms are too tired to continue! Check out the carousel above to see some of the species you can expect to catch. Every private charter you book is run solely by Captain Carlos Iriban. Charters take place aboard a 19' polar bay boat. This boat is powered by a 2021 Suzuki 150hp engine. The boat is equipped with Garmin Electronics and a Minn Kota trolling motor. This fishing charter service is very family-oriented and welcomes all ages and groups. Meet up location can occasionally change depending on the day and where the best fishing is in the area, but Carlos will commonly pick up his guests from The Hive Waterfront Restaurant & Tiki in Lantana, FL. The hive is located at 2412 Floral Rd, Lantana, FL 33462. It is a great place to grab some delicious food and drinks after your charter! You will need to buy your fresh water fishing license before the trip, but otherwise, Captain Carlos will have everything else you need for a succesful day out on the water. This charter will give you the experiences and moments that you will never forget! Read More
Captain Carlos can put you on the iguanas! Help put a dent in this invasive species humanely & legally. Captain Carlos will provide you with top of the line Air Rifles and guidance to ensure you have a fantastic time on his trip! Don't just book with anyone, book with a U.S.C.G licensed and insured Captain who has the knowledge and skill to take these beauties down the right way. Our private Iguana Charters take place aboard a 19' center console bay boat. We use a .22 caliber air rifle with a scope as well as a noose to hunt the iguanas. This boat is powered by a 2021 Suzuki 150hp engine. The boat is equipped with Garmin Electronics and a Minn Kota trolling motor. This hunting/fishing charter service is very family oriented and welcomes all ages and groups. Our recommended minimum age to utilize our air rifles is 10 years old. However, it all depends on the child and their hunting experience. Meet up location can occasionally change depending on the day and where the best action is in the area, but Carlos will commonly pick up his guests from The Hive Waterfront Restaurant & Tiki in Lantana, FL. The hive is located at 2412 Floral Rd, Lantana, FL 33462. It is a great place to grab some delicious food and drinks after your hunt!

Such a great memorable experience! Carlos was awesome. Very personable and provided knowledge about the area. He got us the opportunity to shoot and see alot of iguanas! Definitely recommend this guided experience!
Awesome experience, would absolutely go back!
Great guy, we had a blast
We had the best time hunting iguanas with Captain Carlos!! I would highly recommend booking with Reefs to Rivers Fishing Charters!!!
Awesome fishing today, we had 4 adults in our group and thoroughly enjoyed the family time with Captain Carlos as our leader. We will in the future return to charter with him again. He knew right where to take us, we had 2 to 3 lines in the water catching at the same time very COOL.... …
Absolutely fantastic fun!!! Carlos know his way around and will put you on the iguanas! Clean operation great equipment! I would strongly recommend this for your next Florida adventure!!!
We just did an all women’s trip and spent 2 half days with Carlos. Long story short, we are already planning our return! We did one day of Iguana Hunting and the second day Peacock Bass Fishing. He got us onto both instantly and we had a lot of action during the duration of the trip! I cannot say enough good things about our experience! …
Had a great time! Wife and kids surprised me with a Father's Day fishing trip. Captain Carlos knew the water extremely well and put me onto fish! Caught my first Peacock Bass on a fly!
Amazing experience! Carlos did an outstanding job leading our excursions and knows the area very well. We’ve gone on two iguana hunting trips with him and each time he has exceeded our expectations. He will make sure you get lots of opportunities and he puts in the work to make sure he retrieves them as well! Would definitely recommend this for hunting enthusiasts or someone just wanting a different type of Florida experience. …
Me and my father went fishing in the canals with Captain Carlos for a peacock bass trip. Carlos was knowledgeable of the areas that he took us to and set us up on many peacocks as well as a variety of other fish, including strippers and cichlids. I can say over the half day we sent with Carlos we had a blast. Carlos was fun to hang out with and a good conversationalist meaning even during the slower moments we still had a good time. Anyone who gets a chance should take a trip with him. Thanks again Carlos! …
Captain Carlos was so much fun to hunt iguanas with! He accommodated our group of 5 women, had top of the line equipment and answered ALL of our questions! He is the very best and I can’t wait to book my next hunting or fishing trip with him! HIGHLY RECOMMEND
Captain Carlos was awesome from the booking to the night before check, to the half day experience on the water. Highly recommend captain Carlos.
Captain Carlos put us on the fish quick. Had a blast.
We had an awesome time We caught all the species we targeted and absolutely killed the peacocks . He knew where the fish were and what they were biting on. There was fresh live bait wait for us on the boat when we got there and when we used them up new right where to find more. We stayed fish for basically the whole six hours, except for the stop at the local watering hole. …
