First time we've fished the Marquesas. It was even better than imagined. Capt. John H. "Merlin" was outstanding. "Persistent and Consistent" was a great formula. We caught a 5' black tip shark, lots of Cuda, Snapper and even an offseason shot at Tarpon. The boat, equipment and marina were top notch. Capt. John was not only a good fisherman but... More

I have never salt water fished before. No worries. Capt. John far exceed any expectation I had. 11 of us all went out. So 3 different boats went out. I can only speak for myself. It was the best part of the trip. At one point all three of us in our boat had fish on. To end the day... More

As someone who has never fished before, I can honestly say that Dream Catcher Charters knows how to teach you! Capt. Steve broke it down and went over all of the basics. We spent hours out on the water and were almost constantly catching something. If the spot wasn't working, we moved on to an area that was. We caught... More

My brother and I went out with Dream Catcher Charters (2) days in back to back fishing trips. We were very impressed with Capt. Hugh "Ice Man" and the entire Dream Catcher team. We caught 8 different species of game fish during the two days and though the weather didn't cooperate on the second day, they managed to still put... More

I will say, prior to our trip to Key West we did read reviews on Tripadvisor to see which charter service we would use. We made the best decision, booking with Dream Catchers. My husband and I went out for a 4 hour trip. Brian, our captain was a real gentleman, and awesome captain. He had us out on the... More

Although we are experienced fishermen, this was our first time "back country" fishing and we had a blast! Our captain (Nick) followed the tidal conditions and we traveled from spot to spot, catching a variety of fish at each location. Sight fishing for cobia (they often times swim alongside sharks) was a highlight and we were lucky enough to catch... More

Great day in the back country. Fished 8hrs with Brian. Hit multiple spots and landed fish at almost all of them. Boat was a 2014 yellowfin. Fast!!! We counted 12 different species of fish caught. Capt. had great gear for all the types of fishing we did including sharking. Brian was very professional and easy to talk with. (Important on... More

Had the best day with Hugh on the back country fishing trip. We caught 11 species of fish. Most keepers (although we did ketch and release) What an exciting day. I could not have asked for more. Will absolutely do again with them and would recommend any time. The charter group knows what they are doing and do not make... More

The staff at Dream Catcher's were excellent, rolling with whatever we threw at them. Our cruise ship was an hour late getting through Key West on board US customs, which totally wrecked the timing of our 4-hour morning charter. The staff worked with us so we were still able to salvage 3.5 hours on the water, and even dropped us... More

There were 4 of us and Captain John. We did all kinds of fishing and caught all kinds of fish. At the end of the four hours, he put a big pole in and caught a shark which my husband brought in. Really exciting! We went home and grilled an amber Jack my sister caught and it was our best... More
