We treated our son with a senior fishing trip to Key West, we scheduled four trips with Dream Catchers: offshore/wreck and reef, flats, back country and tarpon. Every aspect, from booking, guides and equipment was top notch and first rate. You cannot go wrong selecting them for your fishing trip. We will definitely return to Key West and will fish... More

We called Capt. Steve on Friday, July 4 to see if we could schedule a last minute trip on Saturday morning. He set us up with Capt. Hugh. It was a great trip. Capt. Hugh focused on my 14 year old son Drew. He worked with him on casting and then put him on tarpon right away. He worked very... More

We booked a 4 hour trip with Dream Catcher Charters. The day started out overcast and Brian S. got us right out on the fish before the rain. We got 3 hours in before the rain started and the lightning got too close and we had to head in. The 24ft Yellowfin is a great boat to fish with, the... More

Boy of all the things I wish we could control.. The weather.. Capt. Brian has been chased around my more storms lately. We do get some thunderstorms here in Key West and they can be intense. Our job is to keep you safe and in the fish. Thanks for your review.. More

We booked a Shark Fishing trip this weekend on a one day notice. I was happy about that. We got lucky they had a spot open. We took our 4 boys on a 4 hour trip not knowing what to expect. The Wolfman took us out and got us in a good spot and put the lines out. He explained... More

Dream Catcher Charters is highly recommended. I called to make my reservation and let Gennifer know that we wanted something different. We scheduled a reef/wreck trip to the Marquesas. We arrived on the morning of our trip and were instantly greeted by our captain. Capt John was ready to go and seemed almost as excited as we were to get... More

John combines all the ingredients and makes our signature All In Wonder day exceptional from the time he leaves the dock through the last released fish. Congrats on your... More

Dream Catchers is a top notch guiding company. The boats were as clean and well maintained as I've ever been on. Capt. Tommy Z. was a blast to fish with. Looking forward to the next time I'm in Key West because I'll be heading out to fish with Dream Catchers and Tommy Z!

We started bright and early with Capt Steven. He had all the gear and a game plan ready when we arrived at the dock. He was very knowledgeable, had well maintained, top notch fishing equipment and a brand new boat that got where the tarpon were in no time. On the third cast we boated a 90+ pound tarpon. We... More

For your fishing enthusiasts: 100+ lb tarpon hook up on the first cast of the day. Enough said! Add to that a 30 lb permit, many large barracuda, about a dozen yellow tail snapper, plus grouper and a multitude of other fish. We ran out of time long before we ran out of fish. What more could you want from... More
