My husband is an avid fisherman and he took me and one of my girlfriends. We had a lot of constraints (sun exposure, sea sickness, types of fish) but Almost There worked it out for us to have an amazing day on the water. Anthony was our guide and he was very accomodating to the skilled and novice. He keep... More

Went on a back country fishing trip with CPT Ryan of Almost There Fishing Charter. We had an awesome experience. This was our first time back country. We caught Yellow Jack, Gray Snapper and a few throw back sharks. CPT Ryan was fantastic and knew where the fish were. We also caught catch and release grouper. Would go out with... More

Conditions were a challenge (dead calm, no wind, HOT!) but our guide was relentlous in pursuit of our target species. We have fished with many guides over the past 15 years but this was our first fishing trip in Key West so we did not know what to expect. The concierge at our hotel booked this trip, thanks Chuck!

I used Almost There for a private fishing trip while I was on vacation in Key West. Unfortunately the day that i booked my trip for the wind was extremely high, like a constant 30-35mph the whole day! I originally booked an offshore fishing trip, but when I arrived that more Garreth, my captain for the day, told me it... More

Me and three buddies went out with Ryan for some night tarpon fishing. He was awesome. Within 30 mins we had a tarpon on. We also caught multiple other species. Even if we wouldn't have caught anything, it still would've been fun. Ryan was like part of the gang. We'll definitely go back out with him next year!

We came to the Keys for our sons high school graduation gift. He wanted to fish tarpon! We hired this charter with the help from our concierge Andrea at the Sheraton. We had fish earlier up the keys and had a disastrous experience. We ask Andrea to find us a great charter with experienced people. She delivered. Our son pulled... More

Anthony guided me on a morning tarpon trip on 5/27/15. He was on time to the hotel's dock to pick me up and very upfront that the water was rough from all the wind and may not be the best fishing. I told him I was willing to go wherever if it put me on them. He knew where to... More

Captain Anthony was superb, completely passionate and an expert guide on my first ever Tarpon trip. We hooked 5 and got 3 to the boat, 2 of 80lb and another fish of around 120lb. I had an amazing time - I can't wait to get back to the Keys. Sharks next time please skipper!

A quick endorsement for Capt. Anthony as well as Amelia at the front desk. Anthony is very hard-working and personable. The tarpon weren't feeding when we started out at noon-time but he took us offshore a couple miles for some very successful shark fishing. We came back for some tarpon fishing and Anthony was relentless in getting us in the... More
