I have fished several charters in Key West, but have to say Pepe's was the best experience I have ever had. Capt. Pepe's service is outstanding and his skill with the fishing fantastic. We went Tarpon fishing and came up with catches when other boats we're floating by empty. Awesome trip.

My wife and I have been coming to Key West for seven years now and we have been fishing with Pepe since our first trip. I wish trip advisor had 6 stars because 5 doesn't seem to be enough. Pepe is a great individual and an awesome captain and I can't say enough about my experience fishing with Pepe. You... More

My wife and I took a trip with Capt Pepe on a short getaway to Key West. The trip was awesome! We hooked up with 7 tarpon and caught numerous other species - Snapper, Grouper, Sharks, etc. Capt Pepe is very knowledgeable of the conditions and area and knew how to put us on some fish. He is a true... More

On our annual family trek to Key West, we were referred to Capt. Pepe by another Captain for tarpon fishing. What a find. What a morning. Hooked and /or landed tarpon, yellow tail, grouper, jack, barracuda and mutton snapper. Two close calls with a bull shark added additional excitement to the morning. In addition to the fish, Pepe carefully walked... More

Capt Pepe is a very down to earth and honest captain that will work tirelessly to get you on fish. We had some very tough conditions and he did everything he could to get us on some fish. Full moon and a ripping tide made it difficult for us, but Pepe put us on the fish at every spot we... More

I was given the name Pepe from someone I worked with here in Key West. I was looking to take some inlaws fishing for there trip down here. Pepe was prompt and well prepared for the trip. Got us on the fish right away and we started bringing up huge Mutton Snappers. Sadly some sharks got some of them but... More

A friend recommended Captain Pepe Charters so we booked him for a half day trip looking for tarpon on Saturday, May 31. In less than 3 hours, we hooked up 6 tarpon, caught a huge shark, and several yellow tails. He definitely knows what he is doing and is well respected by the fishing community. When we told our hotel... More

I have fished in many places all over the Americas and am aware of the risks in chartering a boat for the first time. I was given a referral for Pepes Charters from another very well known and respected Key West charter captain. The trip worked out very well. Pepe keeps his boat meticulously clean and has very good Penn... More

Pepe was a true professional who showed me and my friends a great time catching some sharks. We went with Pepe because he was honest with us about how the weather and how the high wind would prevent us from going to deep water. He offered suggestions and put each of us on multiple sharks. Fun trip, highly recommend him

Just off a 3 day fishing charter with Pepe. I am a true fisherman and found Pepe through some very high recommendations within the fishing community. I came to Key West specifically to tick 2 species off the bucket list - Permit and Sailfish. Day 1 the fish just did not want to eat --- Pepe struggled to sleep that... More
