We contacted Dream Catchers to do a Flats Fishing 1/2 day in the Florida Keys. They were priced very competitively and came with good reviews. They were very accommodating, informed us precisely what we needed to do, and they provided everything else needed to have a great day fishing. We had a great Captain named Nat and he was professional... More

We had the pleasure of fishing with Captain Tom and Captain Brian. In late May we wanted to catch tarpon and we did. Tom definitely knows where to find them. We came back the first week December wanting to catch shark and again Tom helped us catch a nice bull shark. Two days later Brian guided us to a great... More

We had an awesome time! I would recommend this from Professional fisherman to beginners. You'll love the experience. The captains have a great attitude and make it fun. Ask for Bryan if you get a chance.

We planned a Marquesas trip but the wind prevented that so we fished reefs and inshore. Upon arrival, we were greeted by Capt. Brian, aka Goose, (he died but everybody loved him) and Capt. owner Steven Lamp. They suggested and explained an alternative trip due to the weather and supplied us Calcutta jackets known as “trip savers” which they were... More

We arrived in heavy winds and suspect weather for our planned trip, but Brian, our guide, and Steven Lamb, owner, loaned us rain gear and constructed a terrific trip for us. Captain Lamb was on the scene and ensured we had a great trip. He is committed to client satisfaction and delivers. Captain Brian is a great guide and safety... More

My folks and I booked a 4 hour Backcountry visit with Dream Catchers. Gennifer was very pleasant, clear and helpful for the registration and payment process. When we arrived, Captain Brian was on the dock, ready to go, and within 10 minutes we were on the water. My folks have minimal experience fishing, and I have moderate. Within an hour,... More

I wanted to say how knowledgeable and professional Capt John was. He knew exactly where to find the fish and specifically the sharks in the back country. We were able to catch plenty of bait fish and 2 large sharks on just a 4 hour trip. The equipment and boat was top notch as well. I cant thank Capt John... More

My boyfriend and I had never done anything like this before and had such an amazing experience. Captain John was a great guide, not only did he work hard to ensure we caught over a dozen variety of species, but he was a wealth of knowledge on all the area wildlife, ecoglogy, history and culture. It was more than just... More
