Captain Nick took me and my boyfriend out for a 4 hour charter. He was very attentive, knowledgeable and helpful. We caught everything from grouper, hog, grunt and tarpon. He put us on the fish for sure!! They were biting like crazy!! Will for sure be back the next time we are in key west!

This was my second trip with Dream Catchers. Captain Nick was fantastic and worked hard to find fish. We had a legitimate shot at about 20 Tarpon. We only managed to hook one and lost it after a long battle. The captain did his job and the fishermen just couldn't get it done!!! It was stil a great trip and... More

Great day tarpon fishing! We had a blast on this very clean and well organized charter. Nick aka "Hollywood" was awesome, instructing and encouraging us during an 1 hour 8min successful tarpon fight!! Call and ask for Nick!

I read the reviews and booked a trip. Very pleased I chose Dream Catchers. Captain Bryan took my wife and I out on a 4 hour trip and I (amazingly) was able to catch and release my first tarpon--a 50# "baby". He was the best guide I've ever used and I've been with many. Clean boat, personable and knowledgeable guide,... More

Well, I'm a Wounded Warrior, and all I want to do is go back out to sea. When entering Capt. Z boat. It was clean, and his attitude was outstanding even though the sun look like it wasn't coming out no time soon. He alert my friend and I that he would supply the water; however, any food items, we...
