We went out for a morning charter on a short trip to the Keys. My husband was able to knock a few fish off his list of "to-do" catches and was very pleased. Captain Nick helped me to get started as I'm not at all experienced and instructed me through reeling in my first shark ever! Nothing is ever for... More

It started out with a very friendly and professional conversation with 'Island Genn'. I'd spoken to a few other places before I got Genn on the line. There was something about her manner that caused me to immediately trust her. It was a very simple and straight forward reservation and confirmation process. Day of, Captain Nick (aka Hollywood) treated my... More

I had a fantastic charter with Captain Hugh a couple weeks ago in Key West. It was my first time lobstering and he took the time to give our boat plenty of great tips. I can't wait to come back next year!

Had a very nice day fishing with Capt. Nick. While I went 0/2 on landing my first Tarpon, Nick put me on the fish! I have fished with a lot of guides in many states and fishing with Nick was a real pleasure. Fishing is about "fishing" not catching and we had one heck of a good day fishing. While... More

We had a great time on our Backcountry fishing charter yesterday. Capt. Nate was awesome and made sure everyone had a wonderful time. Our group was three adults and three kids ages 12 and 10. Capt. Nate did an excellent job of making sure everyone was comfortable and great with the kids. I would highly recommend Dream Catcher Charters for... More

All I can say is book Captain "Ice Man" Hugh as quickly as possible! My husband and I are Florida natives, experienced fishermen, but wanted an amazing guide with incredible knowledge and experience to take us out in the waters of Key West during our vacation. (I also needed to get on my husband's level with tarpon fishing as I... More

Captain Hugh is an incredibly polite, knowledgeable employee with this operator that gave us a great time and took us to the places that produced the lobsters. These folks have modern, clean, up-to-date vessels. Quality equipment and people. Signage to find the place could be a bit better. Had to call for help to get there. We will be back.... More

Thanks for your reply.. Yes our signage is bad.. We are trying so hard to get that fixed but even after 15 years in the same place we still are working with Key West to allow a sign for our marina. That said.. thanks for getting out with us and your kind words toward Capt. Hugh. He does an amazing... More

I booked a 4hr lobstering trip for my family. The trip was 8/7/15. The captain took us out to about 7ft of water. It took a while to get the hang of it. We caught a few but all were under size. We moved to another spot where we caught a few and all were undersized. We moved to deeper... More

Our web site plainly states we do not catch the lobster for you. I am really not impressed that that you evaluated my company our state of the art equipment and one of our most well loved captains based on the fact you could not snorkel very well and catch your own lobster. Capt. Nate was concerned about the fact... More
