"NO FISH - NO PAY" GUARANTEE. " We Find'em, You Wind'em!" Don't miss the Main Attraction of the Florida Keys. Friendly, Professional Captains and Mates. A fleet of 7 clean, well maintained boats to choose from along with very competitive rates. All boats equipped with Light tackle and Live bait. We have different sized boats to accommodate 1-6 anglers. We love children and new anglers but also fish large business groups, and professional anglers. We run well over 1000 charters per year. We encourage customer's feedback and go the extra mile to make them happy. Please use your best judgment and read the reviews including our responses to the handful of negative ones. While we can not control the bite, we always work very hard to put our customers on fish. We only hire crews that are enthusiastic about catching fish! Please see our very detailed website on the internet. We have boats from 25' to 43'. Many options to choose from; Reef, Offshore, Wreck, 1/2, 3/4 and Full Day. Also Tarpon, deep dropping, sail fishing, tuna, dolphin, permit and Sword Fishing Charters just to name a few. Proven and Consistent Tournament Winners! We like "We like catching, Not fishing". Over the past 30 years in business at the same location, we have 10s of thousands of very happy customers. We have customers who have fished us 29 years in a row, and now we are also fishing their children and grandchildren!

Toby and Digger of Main attraction 2 did not disappoint and gave us a great experience full of lots of fish. Were very kind and eager to help.

I made it down to Marathon with a few of my buddies for a mild bachelor party. The main goal for me was to go offshore and catch some fish. Toby and digger did not disappoint and put us on the fish immediately. I am a rather experienced fisherman but these guys showed me they are the real deal. We... More

Probably my 33 rd year fishing with "THE MAIN ATTRACTION FAMILY". When you invite friends to go fishing, of course you hope the trip will be a success. Well, it worked again. I had a group of anglers that were looking a "good" day on the water. That's exactly what we got, we caught several species of fish on the... More

I want to share with you just how capable and customer service oriented the fleet at Main Attraction in Marathon, FL is through my experience. I had the pleasure and privilege to have two full days on the Main Attraction (42' Torres). A completely outfitted vessel along with a accommodating, knowledgeable, and hard working crew - Captain Marty and Mate... More

I thought this only happened to others and was usually a "fiosh story", but it happened to us. We stopped by the docks to check out a fishing charter. Captain Morris (the owner) stepped up to greet us and of course make the sale. Am I glad he did. This man has the right attitude about customers enjoying their experience... More

Third times fishing with Capt Ben, great guy, knows his stuff, and not the usual grouchy salt you would have. And very flexible, tries new things and different spots. We caught many fish, and had a great time. Anthony Monaco

Being from the Outer Banks, we've seen more than our fair share of charter outfits. The gear was top notch and the crew very knowledgeable ( Marty & Mike ). We asked to meat fish and they delivered; limited out on cobia and a nice kicker mutton snapper. Will be booking again later in the week. Cheers.

I have never written a TA review before, but after our day on the water with Capt Phil yesterday I had to. We left the dock early, got in late. He never once sat down or even took a drink of water. His West Virginia humor and charm was a hit with everyone. On a half day trip we caught... More

If you want to get the most fish on a 1/2 charter, go with THE BEST! Only choose Captain Phil! We pulled in 18 Yellowtail in about an hour. This captain knew how to fish, knew where to go, knew how to chum, knew the waters and was a great guy to boot! Bob and Carmen Birch Bay Washington
