I paid for a full day of offshore fishing with Bud n Mary's in the end of December (that time of year is when sailfishing is best). I went with my wife and some friends. We paid $1000 and caught one small tuna. Not the expertise I expected from Bud n Marys or for the money. I would not recommend... More

I love the Ms. Islamorada boat. Friendly boat captain and first mates I encountered on my whole week.. I went on two previous fishing trips while on vacation and this is the only boat that I actually caught fish on. For the price of $65 on an all day trip and endless catching of fish it was well worth it..... More

Captain Mike Venezia gave us just what we wanted, in his pink 18' skiff. He asked us lots of questions about where we wanted to go, and what we wanted to catch. We told him we wanted to go offshore a bit, and catch fish that we could eat, and we wanted him to teach us how to do it... More

Spotty weather and a woman on board didn't slow us down. We hooked jacks, Bonita, sailfish and an 8 foot bull shark that I had the privilege of battling. Our captain and mate were first class individuals who absolutely know where to find fish! I'll be back down in a few months and I guarantee my trip will include another... More

My family (10 of us total) fished on That's Right with Captain John on Dec. 28. The seas were rough and the wind was blowing but that didn't stop John and crew from putting us on several types of fish (tuna, sailfish, King Mackerels, yellow tail snappers, and even a large remora). We filled the fish box in half a... More

The Miss Islamorada party boat is a no frills fishing boat that is cheap to go out on for an all day fishing trip. This is for the people that don't mind heat and just fishing. If you are looking for comfort and luxury wrong boat.

We went for a $65 all day (9:30am - 4:00pm) trip which turned out to be really fun. The crew and captain were very knowledgeable and helped us catch plenty of fish. Takes about 2 hours of boating to get to and from the fishing spot so dont let that surprise you. Only thing that was a downside was that... More

Horrible!!! Me and my family stayed at the Ocean Front House and was defiantly NOT worth the money. The on-line pictures were not accurate as told over the phone by Steve. When we arrived, we were treated like an inconvenience and not like guest who just dropped 4200.00 for a one weeks stay in the false advertised house. The 3... More

Bud 'n Mary's Marina is what the Florida Keys was before commercialization took over. The Stanczyk family has tried to maintain that look and feel and they've done a pretty good job of it. As a charter base, they're boats and captains are extremely good at what they do. I've fished with them for many years and have had some... More
