I spent the day Tarpon and Permit fishing on the flats with Dream Catcher Charters, and it was a great experience. It started out with a great sunrise over Key West, and although the winds were up....Capt. Steven Lamp put us on the fish. We hooked up on multiple large Tarpon on the day, but didn't get them to the... More

My wife and I, along with our 15 year old daughter and her best friend chartered a boat skippered by Captain Wylie of Dream Catcher Charters. It was the highlight of our trip to Key West, a memory that will last forever for all of us! When I scheduled the trip I had asked that we not only catch fish,... More

You can be assured of a well run organization with the BEST, most knowledgeable Captains using the state of the art equipment. My Wife and I just spent 3 days tarpon... More

We spent the day with Cap'n Nate in Dream Catcher's beautiful and impeccably clean 28 foot center console boat. Nate's experience on the water showed as he expertly handled the boat, keeping our safety and comfort as the primary concerns. He was friendly and conversational but most of all incredibly knowledgeable about the local fishing conditions, the fish themselves, and... More

My wife and I spent the day fishing with Captain Hugh and Dream Catcher charters. I cant speak highly enough of Cap't Hugh. Not only was he highly professional and engaging, his knowledge of the area and where to find the fish was awesome. We bent rods immediately and spent the day catching different species using different techinques. Despite varying... More

My boyfriend & I went with another couple who are quite experienced in deep sea fishing. I was loving the boat, but thought no way am I standing on the bow to fish ! (I can't swim!) Well, my bf almost immediately caught a Jack fish, the other gentleman then caught a nasty barracuda, then he hooked the big one~... More

Had a great time tarpon fishing with Capt'n Nick. We put 5 fish in the air and fought a big one for almost two hours before a 8' bull shark interrupted our fun. The booking process is straight forward and well organized. The boats are nice, and well maintained. The business of fishing is handled correctly. Can't go wrong.

Took my son, (12 years old), fishing in the Keys for the first time with "Ice Man", we enjoyed the experience and knowledge of the area very much. We had a lot of bites and caught all different types of fish. We also saw a couple of small sharks (2 to 3 ft long), which was great to see in... More

My wife and I had a great day fishing with these guys. Great at running around trying to find the fish, and we did. Found the permit and blew the cast , I still blame Capt Tommy for trusting me to do it myself. But he did get me in a 2 hr tarpon fight that was awesome. I highly... More
