My friends and I would highly recommend Florida Keys Reel Adventures - Captain Kevin was amazing! We caught at least 15 fish and Kevin was a great teacher for those of us that had limited fishing experience. After fishing, we snorkeled in three different locations where we saw nurse sharks and even a giant sea turtle (my favorite part)!! This... More

I went on my first reef fishing trip with Captain Kevin. Captain Kevin is Awesome! I have never fished on the ocean. Kevin was patient, gave simplistic instructions and I was catching fish within minutes. Could not have asked for a better day. Book with Captain Kevin today!

Don't waste your time looking elsewhere...Go REEL ADVENTURES all the way! My husband and I took my father and two boys (12 & 13) out on our first chartered fishing trip with Captain Kevin. Unfortunately, everyone had been telling us to just skip the charter as the fishing conditions as of late had been just terrible, but at the last... More

Last September my then-boyfriend introduced me to Captain Kevin and we went for an amazing fishing and lobstering trip. A little over a year later my now fiancé and I had yet another great day of fishing (limiting out in under two hours!!), snorkeling, and I even got to play and swim as a mermaid. Couldn't have asked for a... More

Great offshore trip with captain Kevin. He put us on fish quick and we pulled in tuna until our arms were sore. I really wanted to pull in a dolphin but we couldn't find them. Fun trip make sure you are prepared to work hard and learn fast to make the most out of your trip.

Captain Rich is a wonderful host. We spent a second day in a week with him Fishing. First time fishing for the kids, 20 and 22 years old, made memories that will bring them back to Keys for more. Rich did a super job teaching and coaching us into a successful day on the water.

Captain Kevin provides all you need and seems to have a wealth of experience and knowledge. We used him for our first lobstering trip and he went above and beyond to be helpful...He's definitely all business and get the job done. He's polite but not especially friendly or patient. Definitely respectful, nice --and provides good clean fun and if you... More

I want everybody to read this as it is critical to the success of my business. This trip was booked and all communication was through Andrew's secretary. I thoroughly explained my concerns for his trip to her, where my participants must have a working understanding of what we are doing and meet basic minimum requirements to be successful. I prepare...
