Recent Reviews of Captain Experiences
Capt. Rick and Hope were the best we’ve had a chance to fish with! Great boat, everything you need is offered, good fishing, and a lot of fun. We will be fishing with them again soon and I highly recommend if you are traveling with the whole family, friends, or kids. They have it covered.

Captain Bill's boat was immaculate. He accommodated my special request on short notice and made my trip outstanding. Very experienced captain, he knew the waterways like the back of his hand, and was passionate about fishing.
Christopher M. with Bill R. of Pompano Beach, Florida
EXEPTIONAL... HARD WORKING TALENTED CAPTAIN. WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND.. OH BTW... WE CAUGHT SOME BIGGGG FISH!
Jeff A. with Chris P. of Islamorada, Florida
Awesome trip! Lots of fish and good conversation! We’ll be back. We had a blast!
Brittni H. with Jason C. of Key Largo, Florida
The guide was really good at getting us on the fish and multiple species and big fish! However he was kinda aggressive and yelled at us and made us clean up his boat every 5 minutes. 2 out of the 3 of us were new and never fished however he was kinda aggressive in teaching fishing techniques. He kinda made it feel like he caught the fish and then we just realed them in. But this guide does know his stuff and will get you on fish. On top of that not his fault at all!! But my trip was booked for the mangroves and captain experiences changed it to kinda deep ocean fishing.
Allen R. with Hunter L. of Key West, Florida
We had a blast with Captain Brad and his crew Miles and Whitney! The boat had a toilet, lots of comfortable and covered seating for those that were not fishing. They were great with instructions and techniques on how to land the catch! They knew all the hot spots and we had enough fish to feed an army dinner!
Rachel S. with Brad P. of Marathon, Florida
The guys were very happy with their trip and happy with the catch! Dustin was great also! Thanks we would do this again
Stephen B. with Dustin L. of Sarasota, Florida
Awesome trip captain Chris is great!
JOSEPH B. with Chris P. of Islamorada, Florida
Captain Paul and First Mate ed were great. Kind of a rough weather day (they gave us the iption to cancel) and they did everything possible to keep the ride as comfortable as they could. Ed did 3 hours of non-stop chumming/baiting and was determined to maximize our catch. I will look forward to our next day on the water.
Jonathan J. with Paul J. of Islamorada, Florida
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.
Joseph B. with Ben T. of Tavernier, Florida
Had a great day out in spite of some stormy weather. Captain Jake was an awesome guide and took me to where he knew I would "at least catch some dinner." We try to get on some Mahi but not so lucky. But Captain Jake gave me the option of staying where he knew we could keep reeling in some good eating fish. Captain Jake was knowledgeable, safe, and a great guy. Will be back here at some point again, and would totally recommend him as your charter experience.
Chad C. with Jake A. of Marathon, Florida
This trip was definitely our highlight of the whole vacation. The captain was knowledgeable, experienced, friendly and highly accommodating. This made the trip so enjoyable. His first mate, Josh, was so efficient and explained everything he was doing so we could learn and stay safe. Both of them were so easy to have conversations with and really made for the best time at sea. We ended up reeling in 16 fish and throwing back 7 due to size. Fun-ish little story, one of the Mahi Mahi we reeled in came into the boat as half a fish because a shark bit at it as we were fighting it in. It was clear to see the bite marks. So we finished the day with 8 Mahi and 1 Wahoo, but even without the incredible luck we had on the sea, this trip would have been amazing. Josh filleted everything we caught and we gave away a bunch, and even the local restaurants will prepared it for you if needed. I highly recommend this excursion.
Kelly S. with Chuck T. of Key West, Florida
Captain John was awesome! He was super upfront about water conditions and left all the decisions to us. Had a quick backup plan for us since there were 7-9 foot seas offshore. Caught some fish waiting out the weather and then put us on the fish we were after! 10/10 would recommend
Chase G. with John G. of Key West, Florida
Highly recommended Capt. Hunter took my family on a great adventure. He made sure that we caught a ton of fish and taught my son Hank loads about fishing for the next time. Great fun for the family.
Joe W. with Hunter L. of Key West, Florida
Captain Jack was a great guide we had a ton of fun!!
David G. with Jake A. of Marathon, Florida
Our group had 5 people with little to no fishing experience. Brad took us to fish for yellowtale first, about 35 minutes away from the dock. He and his hand Miles showed us how to use the rods properly and we caught about 10 or 12 yellowtales. They were both very friendly and helpful, we all felt comfortable and had a good time. Unfortunately some of us got sea sick so we decided to cut the trip short. Brad had cautioned us about that beforehand and offered to move our trip to a day with calmer weather, what we would have done would we have had the time. We would definitely go with Brad again. He is a friendly local guy and he made the trip fun and personal, not at all commercial like some of the bigger boats. He knows the area and waters very well.

Captain Alex was great. We caught many fish, had a good time.
Scott S. with Alex H. of Key West, Florida
We had a great time! He was great with the kids and put us on the fish! Would go with him again!
Sean S. with Eric G. of Key West, Florida
Hunter was great with the kids. He definitely got us on the fish. The kids were so busy reeling in fish that I couldn’t! They had a great time.! Thanks!!
Jonathan E. with Hunter L. of Key West, Florida
