Recent Reviews of Captain Experiences

    Damn great time on the water with Ben. He was willing to quickly adjust to last minute changes (remember, when you are replying to messages from Captain Experiences they might not get to the guide you are using through them). Ben got us into multiple species of fish using various methods of angling. When our time was up, we had a few "keepers" that Ben filleted up for us. It was a perfect day on the water. Thanks for the great time Ben and, more importantly, thank you for your service to our country! DO NOT HESITATE to book a trip with Ben.

    Wow what a great time we had. Captain Scott was awesome caught some fish, great conversation as well would recommend to anybody.

    Nickolas T. with Scott G. of Tavernier, Florida

  • ★★★★★
    Captain Casey went above and beyond today to put us on the fish, as well as being very accommodating! His boat is top of the line, and he has all nice new poles and reels, as well as everything on his boat is impeccably clean. You will have a relaxing experience with a captain who is extremely knowledgeable of all aspects of fishing and keeps you moving and busy for your time on the water. We knew right away once we met captain Casey at the marina we booked with the right captain because he is extremely professional, courteous, and as I stated earlier, extremely accommodating. For me personally, I ended landing the largest fish I have ever caught before which was really exciting. At the end of our trip, he did filet all of our fish and did a very good professional job, which was very nice so we did not have to do that. His first mate today was his cousin Luke, and he was very attentive to us, the rods, fish, upkeep with the boat, and anything you could imagine. Overall, we have found our main “guy” for fishing when we visit down here, which is fairly often because we only live 3 hours away. We are excited to go back out with Captain Casey again! If you want a true Florida keys fishing experience, Captain Casey is your guy!
