Capt Rich and First Mate Ben put us on the fish, even with other boats struggling. Friendly, like you had been fishing with them forever, knowledgeable about the area, conditions, etc. we will be back!!!

We took six guys and Capt. Rich hooked us six fish, we caught wahoo,mackerel,bonito and a barracuda. Capt Rich was great and helped explain a lot while we were fishing. His mate Paul was also extremity great. He worked hard and did not skip a beat when it came time to bring in the fish. I would suggest using Captain... More

When we planned our trip to the Florida Keys, my daughter had asked if we could do some fishing and then cook what we caught for dinner. Since no one else in our group was interested in going (we were vacationing with multiple families), we had to find a split charter. After expanding my search to Key West, I found... More

When locals want to come back tomorrow, you know it was a great day! Captain Rich had to take his girl sky-diving, but sent us out with John as our captain and Paul as mate for an incredible day of dolphin fishing! We caught every size from peanuts to a 28 pound bull. A group of 6 grey haired locals... More

Captain Rich and his First Mate did a great job for us on a all day trip with my twin 14 year old daughters and me, in spite of what was high winds and difficult conditions. He made sure they had the time of their life, catching (and releasing) a large Black Tip Shark -- Bucket List for one daughter... More

My wife and I had a morning charter on Southbound on Feb 14th (romantic?) I could not say enough about the amount of fun and excitement my wife and I had with Captain Rich and John. My wife got ill twice and she still had a great time (even was able to catch a nice mackerel). Even if we did... More

I knew we were in the right place immediately. Only 1 of 4 of us had any real fishing experience. Before we left Cpt. Rich asked us all what we wanted to do. It wasn't based on what was biting, but rather what we thought we would have fun doing. He runs a laid-back, but very professional charter. We had... More
