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

As a guide myself, I only have one word to describe Ron and Nina, AMAZING... Had a blast fishing with them, they delivered on everything we asked for and went out of their ways to make the trip more enjoyable for my buddy's wife and mine. As soon as we make it back to key west Ron will be getting... 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

We had a fabulous time with Captain Ron and Nina. They kept our three teenagers entertained, taught us how to ocean fish, and let us snorkel on the beautiful water. Highly recommended.

It's been a couple of years since I chartered with the Blue Eyed Trader and every time it gets better. Captain Ron and Nina are expert fisherman (and fisherwoman, Nina you're awesome.) We headed out late morning and were on the fish within five minutes of anchoring and chumming. SNAPPERS GALORE! After we approached our limit, we tried another place... More
