We had a fantastic time fishing in the Keys this past April. We chartered a fishing trip with Bamboo Charters and were lucky enough to have the owner, Matt Bellinger, as our guide. He was fun and knowledgeable and seemed to enjoy us catching fish as much as we did! We booked him one day for inland fishing and caught... More

Over the past 14 months, I have booked 5 trips with Bamboo Charters. We have always received excellent service. Matt and Ana run a great business and the guides have always been great. Captain Tony is one of the most experienced guides I've hired and has always put us on fish and ensured we had a great time. I'd recommend... More

My husband and I booked a half day fishing charter with Bamboo Charters. Booking with this company required a little more rigamorale than I care for... you need to print and sign their contract and either scan and email or fax back to them. You also need to call them the day prior to your charter to 'reconfirm', etc. It... More

This is the charter to take for backcountry. I have fished salt water around Beaufort SC, BUT this is so different from what I was thinking. You really need a professional guide like Captain Keith to show you the ropes. I will always use Bamboo charters on my next trip to the keys. Thanks for making my wife and I... More

My cousin and i recently booked a few days with Bamboo Charters, I happened to know Capt. Keith Tucker from previous trips in California and Nevada for flyfishing. When I found out he had relocated, I knew i was going to make a trip of a lifetime in the Florida Keys! Originally we had planned to fish two solid days,... More

We had an excellent time on our fishing charter and I would recommend Bamboo to anyone visiting Islamorada. Our captain [Keith] wasn't an old salty dog............not saying being a salty dog is a bad thing.......but Keith was like a multi-spiced dog. Keith, 24 Ranger boats, clean marina and good fishing.....That's 4 reasons that I will be back!!!!!! Had A Great... More

Second time fishing with Matt's team! Fished with Keith and had a blast! We landed a 140 pound tarpon at the Channel 2 bridge which took us for a ride through the bridge but it was fantastic! Gail and I we're beat from catching so many fish. I will make reservations in advance to fish with Bamboo and Keith next... More

However, the absolutely highlight of the trip was spending the afternoon on a private charter boat with "Captain Matt" from Islamorada, FL. The only ways to decribe him is incredibly fun... More

We called many different companies when looking for a quick fishing trip to introduce our 5-year old and 8-year old boys to fishing for the first time. We were concerned about being out on the boat for a long time given the typical short attention span of a 5-year old. This was the only company we found that would offer... More
