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

THIS MAN TOOK HIS OWN PERSONAL TIME TO TAKE MY FLIGHT CREW OUT ON SHORT NOTICE FISHING TRIP!!! This is one of the best fishing trips we did. Pepe actually took us shark fishing and I learned so much more then just catching a fish. Pepe showed my crew how to respect a shark, how to handle them, and how... More

My father, brother, and my two sons spent 2 days with Pepe fishing for Tarpon. The bite was off but we still managed to get one on. Caught lots of snapper and grouper. My 12 year old son managed to wrestle in a 6ft lemon shark.

Pepe'-- this guy knows what he is doing and knows where to go...I caught my first Tarpon and my first Permit with Pepe'. I have referred every fishing houseguest to him and zero disappointments!! The weather on the 2nd trip--not so good, but Pepe' had a sweet spot closer to shore and we caught fish all day--can't beat that!!! Dan

We hired Captain Pepe and had a great trip. I wanted to fish for Tarpon, but the bite was off. Captain Pepe put us on some good bottom fishing, and then we went for shark. Three of the four of us caught a sand shark. We will definitely call Captain Pepe on our next trip.

We hired Pepe and what a wonderful day, weather was great, water was calm and this was the first time salt water sport fishing for my wife. In the past she found fishing boring. With Pepe we decided we wanted some fish to take home and enjoy such a glorious day the later of January, 2014 where back home it... More

I am not one that writes a lot of reviews but Capt Pepe was so great I wanted to let everyone know! I took my sons to Key West and wanted to do some fishing, took the advice or others who wrote good reviews about Pepe's Charters. He was excellent, did everything to get us on the fish. My son...

Haven't tried any other key west charters but I already know pepe provides the best experience by far. He's a genuinely nice guy and a fishing expert. He knows all the popular spots where he... More

If you want excellent guiding for results (Mahi, sailfish, grouper, yellow tail- all catch and release except the Mahi-Mahi) Pepe is your man. Be aware there are NO bathroom facilities on board and NO food except Gatorade and water. 27 foot boat with no shade necessitates sun block and adequate skin covering. Pepe is a philosopher and you will return... More

If you book Pepe you will catch fish and you will have a great time doing it. He got us on fish when the conditions weren't the greatest. We caught fish anyway. Caught my first shark also. Pepe is an excellent Captain and just as important, he is a good honest man.
