Had a great time fishing despite less than ideal weather (30 MPH wind). Joe and Kit were great and still worked their butts off and took us out even though the other half of our split backed out. I know for a fact that many other charters would have scrubbed the trip entirely. I selected this charter based on all... More

We had a great time fishing and even stopped to do some snorkeling. As a woman, I was happy with the convenience of having a bathroom in the boat. Everyone had... More

Had a great experience with the whole family. Captain Joe & Kit were very attentive to what we set out to accomplish. Perfect day out for us. Kit kept my kid entertained the entire trip. He's hilarious! Joe was extremely knowledgeable and was a pleasure conversing with him. I highly recommend the Dirty Boat.

My wife, her parents, our daughter and I had a marvelous time and we caught a variety of fish including snapper and tuna. Breaking a heavy rod and losing a rig to something too big to... More

Came down to the Florida keys and booked a charter with the dirty boat with my friends and young kids. These guys put us on fish and taught us all a little bit about fishing in the keys. Also provided us with some ICE COLD drinks on a hot summer day! Would definitely do it again!
