Captain Matt took out 2 boats and 2 captains to entertain / fish 8 of us. The kids are all High school students (2 boys, 2 girls) and Mom and Dad and some friends. We had a blast. My Son caught an 11 foot Hammerhead shark. We eventually decided to stop fishing and enjoy the sun. Great day, Great People.... More

Captain Keith and Jud took us out on a six-hour trip in early November. These guys really know what they're doing and are more than helpful when it comes to showing you how to catch fish. We went after the maximum action, so stuck to hitting mangrove snappers all day. Keith and Jud were particularly good with the two kids... More

My wife and I booked a trip with Bamboo Charters for an afternoon fishing. We couldn't be more pleased with Capt. Matt. He had a great ranger boat powered by mecury which made us feel at home as we have owned bass boats in the midwest by the same. Better yet we caught plenty of fish. Many species, hogfish, snapper,...

If we could give Bamboo Charters 10 STARS we would! When planning our trip to Islamorada we came across Bamboo Charters and Captain Matt while watching an episode of Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmerman – they were fishing Islamorada and we knew this was the Charter for us! Anna was extremely helpful in setting up our fishing trip, answering all... More

Fishing with Captain Matt is simply a good time. Captain Matt loves what he does and it shows in his extra effort on every trip you will take. From taking the extra time and his expense to drive out to the everglades to find fish or the patience to play with the dolphins, his love of fishing and the keys... More

I had a fantastic experience this week with Bamboo Charters. I took my 11 y/o son and his 12 y/o buddy for a great day on the water. Capt. Keith was great with the boys and he did an excellent job of teaching and coaching them on fishing technique. The boys caught a bunch of Mangrove Snappers and loved every... More

My two boys ( 17 and 20) wanted to go fishing, and the decision on who to charter with can be confusing. Well, we decided upon Bamboo Charter's, and were very happy with our decision. We selected the half day, and went in the morning. We all caught lots of fish, and ended up the day catching a 3 foot... More
