Captain Ron and Nina are fantastic. I learned more in a days fishing than in the last year. They are willing to discuss what and what is not working. We were able to catch fish all day. There experience allowed us to fish for many types of fish. Thanks so much and look forward to the next time.

What do you get when you cross a passionate New England fisherman with sunshine, salt water, and the best partner a boat captain could ask for? Ron and Nina do the work of three and love every minute of it. Ron wants you to catch fish and makes sure you do. Nina is a true gem and these two are... More

Captain Ron & Nina's vast experience put you on the fish and their guidance and encouragement put the fish on the boat. Ron's passion for fishing is obvious from the moment you step on the boat. Nina is kind and welcoming and makes you feel at home on their clean and fully equipped vessel. I would strongly recommend these fine... More

From the moment we stepped on the boat the captain and his wife made us feel like friends, not like clients. The boat is also nicer than most other charters in key west for the price. The best part was Ron knows how to put you on the fish your after and get them in the boat. I would book... More

I was amazed at the biodiversity of the fish and the amount of fish we caught. Ron and Nina provided an amazing fishing experience. Their expertise clearly at the fore, I learned volumes watching them navigate between all the lines in the water and all the fish being hauled on board. You've never been fishing till you've been fishing with... More

Captain Ron and his wife Nina made sure to make it that way! They put the effort in to help us catch fish, taught the kids how to fish (ages 7,12, 14) and took us to the most amazing snorkeling. All of this and their fun positive attitudes towards fishing, kids, and customer service made it a lifetime memory for... More
