    NON-STOP ACTION! Captain Experiences “HOOKED” us up with Captain Ben! Captain Ben is not only professional but he has the experience, knowledge, patience and skill that put us on multi species of fish, in diverse weather conditions throughout the day!! My two sons and I agree, that fishing with Captain Ben was like fishing with a friend! We made memories that will last forever! April 25, 2023.

    This wasn't our first fishing trip in Key West but it was one of the best, Zack was a great captain, we had an awesome time. While other boats in the vicinity had limited luck Zack had us on fish all day. I can highly recommend Captain Experiences you will not regret it, five stars all the way, thanks again from the Charleston, SC. foursome.

    I booked this trip for my husband and grandson. We didn't want a large group trip, so this one was perfect. Capt Joey and I spoke several times and he was quick to respond with any answers I had. He was knowledgeable, helpful, and ensured my guys had a great trip! I would recommend him highly, with no hesitations. If you want a small, intimate trip into the Everglades, this is the way to go!!!
