Great Outfitter, great captains all in all excellent company. Equipment is first class and complete. Captains ( I fished with two on a four day trip) were very professional, knowledgable, and just plain fun to spend a day with. I have booked on and off around 30 guided fishing/outdoor events and would highly recommend Dream Catchers. Drop them a line... More

Have been fishing with individual guides in the Key's since the late 60's. This was the first experience with a company with multiple guides and boats. Dream Catchers is customer-focused! Boats are extremely well-equipped; our guide Brian was knowledgeable, personable and eager to please...first time I ever had a safety-briefing about equipment on board! Brian was really discrete and helpful... More

Wife and I scheduled a 6 hour fish/snorkel trip but it was a bit cool so we took the 6 hours to fish. Our guide Hugh made us feel very comfortable from the beginning and asked us what type of fishing we were wanting to do. Hugh quickly explained that the fishing was tough due to the weather conditions and... More

Earlier in the morning I had my Dry Tortugas trip canceled due to high winds/rough seas. I re-scheduled the Dry Tortugas (I will do a review for them separately) trip for Wednesday. I... More

Windbreakers were provided by the guide and were both unexpected and very necessary. Winds were 20-25 and temps were very low 60's First the equipment. The boat had the get up... More

Everyone we encountered with Dream Catcher was so helpful and friendly. Due to a nasty weather forecast, they called Brian in a day early (at almost at the last minute) to make sure we were still able to get our fishing in! He was a great guide and sport in the rain. The four hour trip was perfect! Brian made... More

My boyfriend and I went out on a half day charter in the morning of December 30th with Capt. Hugh E. and we both enjoyed it so much. We've done private charters at various locations before and found Dream Catchers to be one of the most professionally run with the latest and newest fleet/gadgets around.
