Our family had a great day fishing with captain Ryan Carter. After an exciting hookup with a nice tarpon, we switched tactics and caught two permit in two casts! After checking off permit on my bucket list, we headed to the reef, where the snapper action was non-stop! All members of the family got involved as we caught enough snapper... More

In considering this review and wanted to be fair, honest, and reasonable. Yes we caught fish, yes we had an overall good time, BUT 2 of our guests had never fished before. Our captain was not all that approachable and did not appear to be terribly patient with those less experienced with this level of fishing. Also, we wasted at... More

Great job guys. You guys made our vacation very memorable. Captain Amy and captain Ryan do a great job. They know their stuff. My niece was hesitant to go snorkeling and Amy was superior in making her comfortable in the water and allowing her to slowly adjust to the new surroundings. The couple hours at the sand bar just chilling... More

We went on an 8 hour fishing trip with Captain Ryan Carter and had an absolute blast today. We caught several huge lemon sharks and even hooked a tarpon! It was worth every penny. Ryan was so much fun, the weather was perfect and the fishing was phenominal. Today was the best family fun day in a long time. Thanks... More

My husband and I decided on a last minute anniversary celebration trip to the keys. Called several charter companies but KEY West PRO Guides stood out when inquiring about charter options. Captain Roc, who we spoke to on the phone, took his time to answer every question we had. I am not a fishing enthusiast and therefore had zero knowledge... More

Went out on a 4 hour charter with Captain John Jackson this week. Within 5 minutes of dropping anchor by a "wreck", I had a 70lb tarpon on the line! It took about a half hour to land, but was a lot of fun to see jump. While there we also caught a few 18 -20lb jack crevalles. We then... More
