Captain John of Key West Florida is your one-stop shop for all things Florida Keys fishing!

The son of a commercial fisherman, Captain John spent many days and nights exploring the many wonders that the lower keys has to offer. Raised on Sugarloaf Key, located between Key West and Big Pine Key, Captain John enjoyed exploring these world-class waters inside and out fishing, diving, and exploring the many islands, channels, creeks, and waterways which make up what is known as
the back-country.

With his younger brother James, Captain John would search for new places to fish and dive and would always bring home fish or lobster for their mother to cook.

As Captain John grew up, he began to broaden his explorations beyond the backcountry to fishing and diving reefs, another entirely different ecosystem full of different wonders and fascinating creatures.

As a young man, Captain John earned many commercial licenses and spent the majority of his time fishing and diving for lobster.

In the late 80's, Captain John created his own charter company and has shared his knowledge and experience with others ever since.

Captain John is thankful to call the lower keys home, saying, "this diverse Eco-system has and will forever be a magical place to me".

Come join Captain John for an incredible adventure on the water!

Captain David Larson was nice, professional and best of all, he put us on the fish! I did the 4 hour charter and we caught barracuda, massive bull shark, trigger fish, grouper, and blue fish. By the end of the 4 hours I was happy and exhausted. Captain David was experienced, helpful and a genuine good guy.

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.

We had an amazing time on our trip. Our first trip with another company was canceled that morning and I was able to book another trip the same day. The lady at Captain Experiences helped me find something for my family. Then we absolutely loved the fishing and Captain Zac. He helped everyone catch a fish! I would definitely recommend!
