My colleague and I booked this trip from the reviews we had read, unfortunately they din't match up to what we had expected. The Captain was amusing in his delivery of the safety drills and held our attention at the right level to insure we were versed in it. We went to our first stop and the fishing was quiet,... More

Mike is high energy and will stop at nothing to make your day [or half day] enjoyable and near the fish. We caught fish in every spot. Mike is a 4th generation angler and knows his way around the keys. We caught enough fish to feed 7 hungry adults and had plenty left over. Although we didn't hook a tarpon,... More

We booked a trip on the party boat (Miss Islamorada) last minute due to our dive trips being cancelled due to high winds. Our family had a awesome time (at least those of us that took Dramamine). We had Captain AJ and deckhand TJ helped out a lot with broken and tangled lines. Luckily the boat wasn't packed so we... More

We booked a few months ago and wanted a "warm up" 4 hour trip just to bend the poles before going after the more elusive Tarpon the following day. Charlie and 1st mate Austin greeted us and off we sped to our 1st fishing site. Austin chummed the water and a huge school of yellow tail snappers came within site... More

My girlfriend and I went out with captain Rick today and had an amazing time. Rick had us on fish literally from start to end. He's very friendly and knowledgeable. Easily 5 star rating.

Came down with my sister and nephew who is 10 and had a delightful time! The folks in the marina and neighboring boats were exceptionally friendly! Unfortunately I didn't know much about fishing around the Keys so I could have used a more novice boat but overall good time! The water and islands everywhere are too beautiful to describe!

Went on a party boat on a Saturday morning charter and returned about 4pm. The captain was down on the boat deck making fun of the "paying customers" for not catching any fish. I have never seen or been on a fishing boat were the captain was not trying his hardest to be sure that his customers went home with... More

We came down to the keys on a last minute trip. I called Bud 'n Mary's to see if we can stay but they were fully booked. We decided to stop to check it out on the drive up fro Key West to Miami and so glad we did. All of the animals! Pelicans, tarpon, igrets, sharks, manatees, etc! Talked... More
