Been fishing the Keys for years. This was hands down the best fishing ever. Captain Eric was enthusiastic, friendly, and most importantly had us on the fish. A very experienced captain that certainly knows his trade. Took a 6 hour trip and it was non stop action. Caught over a dozen different types of fish. This is a very experienced... More

Bamboo Charters has become a tradition with us for fishing trips when we visit Key Largo. Whether Matt, Keith, or Eric are at the helm of the vessel, the fishing trip is an adventure to be remembered. The crew is quite knowledgeable about fishing, boating, and waters being traversed. Back to back fishing trips with Eric yielded our limit per... More

Had a great day on the water with Capt Keith...we got into a half dozen sharks that were jumping and peeling line. So much fun! And that was after catching a dozen mackerel we used for bait that were a fun catch too. Capt Keith was an outstanding guide and gave us a great day on the water and all... More

Wanted to take the family (myself, wife, and two younger kids (6 and 8) fishing. Didn't want to do a half day trip as I didn't know how everyone would like it. Found Bamboo on line, and with such great reviews and the fact they had a 2 hour trip, decided to give them a try. Ana (back office): Very... More

My husband and I went down to Islamorada for a long weekend before Christmas. I really wanted to take him out fishing for the day. My Dad had taken me backcountry fishing with Bamboo Charters the day before my wedding a couple years ago and we had an amazing day! So of course I booked with them again for John... More

This was the highlight of our trip to the keys. My 7 year old boys caught dozens of fish. Every few minutes something would bite and they'd haul one in. Most of them had to be thrown back but we still took home a decent haul of red snapper. Comfortable boat, fun ride, great setup. Also, we visited the Turtle... More

This was my first fishing charter (I know how cool my first was in Islamorada). We had an 8-12pm charter with Captain Keith. He was awesome, on time, funny, skilled, knowledgeable, and just a blast to hang out with on the water. My husband and son vacation in Islamorada each year so Keith came highly recommended from them. We went... More
