    Captain Ron was awesome! Tons of fun. Caught dozens of fish. He was super helpful. Knew the good spots. Would totally recommend for a great family or couples excursion.

    Cameron S. with Ron B. of Islamorada, Florida

  • ★★★★★
    We recommend this outing to all. Couldn't have asked for a better experience. Our grandkids loved it and would like to do it again.

    Denise M. with Rio S. of Melbourne Beach, Florida

  • ★★★★★
    Had a great day fishing with Captain Brandon. We caught a lot of fish, including barracuda, snapper, nurse and lemon shark. Brandon kept moving around to ensure that we stayed on the fish. We've fished with a number of guides over the years and Brandon was one of the best!

    Michael B. with Brandon S. of Summerland Key, Florida

  • ★★★★★
    Brandon was fantastic. We went out on the coldest day of January, 2024 and we still caught fish. Brandon is extremely knowledgeable of the area and how to fish it, informative and extremely patient, especially with a beginning like me. I couldn’t have been happier the way the day turned out. I caught some beautiful Snapper for dinner and then some Barracuda and Sharks for sport. I highly recommend his services and he would be my first choice on a return trip to the Keys. Thank you, Mark Maynard

    Mark M. with Brandon S. of Summerland Key, Florida

    Ron is the best!!! We had a great morning on the water. We felt so confident in his boating and fishing knowledge. Absolutely headed back again for another day out on his boat. Just a great guy and Master Captain!!!!

    Diane D. with Ron B. of Islamorada, Florida

  • ★★★★★
    With a huge storm the day before and winds still keeping most boats off the water we did very well. 12 fish total with 2 being sharks. One fish we caught was bit in half! Great day on the beach! Learned so many new skills as well and Kathy is too notch at sharing her techniques and working diligently to keep all three of us busey with four rods. You won't find that from a boat. Honestly with four poles soaking, most double rigs totaling 7-8 baits in the water at all times seems much more productive than one rod per angler getting snagged on a reef or baits getting stripped. Being an avid angler myself I'm very impressed with my first time surf fishing under post cold front conditions when many fish get finiky and tuff to commit to feed. Thank you Kathy!!! I'll be back!

    Brian G. with Cathy S. of Flagler Beach, Florida

  • ★★★★★
    Taylor was great to fish with. We had my 3 year old son, my 70 year old father and my 14 year old nephew on the boat. Everyone had a blast and got a fish on a day that was not ideal conditions for fishing. Highly recommend and plan to use him and Alex again in the future.

    Bill Z. with Taylor C. of Bradenton, Florida

  • ★★★★★
    I had a great day on the water with Capt Richard. I especially appreciated his willingness and experience to teach me as it was my first time saltwater fly fishing.
