Horrific! I booked a trip for a total of 6 people a year in advance. I called every few months to make sure we were still good to go. I had people flying in to meet us from NY and Virginia. 6 months into the reservation they called and increased the charter due to gas prices. I said no problem,... More

Came down to Islamorada for the day from Miami and went out with Captain John Johansen, who could not have been more knowledgeable, gracious and friendly. He was the perfect combination for a day on the water, and we had a wonderful time. We caught an array of fish, learned a lot, had an amazing time, and couldn't have taken... More

We booked our full day charter with Capt Sid and left from this marina. The marina is well taken care of and we enjoyed a nice breakfast burrito from the small cafe before we left. Although it was a windy day when we were out we still enjoyed catching shark, lady fish, pompano, blue runners and many other species. We... More

My wife and I went out recently, fishing thru Bud N' Mary's Marina on Islamorada! A great day all across the board with Captain Dave Sisung! Fish were caught, the Captain knowledgable and enjoyable to be in a boat with for 8 hours, and of course, punctual! the convenience/tackle store had all we needed and the folks behind the counter...

Just an average party boat trip. I have been on many of these in the past and this one to me was on the mediocre side, at best. The boat was a bit small for the amount of people they packed onto it (long length, but not wide). Every time someone needs to go to the restroom, get a beer,... More

We stopped by Bud & Mary's to rent fishing rods so that we could fish from the bridges around the middle keys. The staff there knew their stuff! They rented us just what we needed and recommended the best places to go. Channel 2 and channel 5 bridges were great! We ended up booking a day trip on the head... More

Bud n' Marys lives up to all of the attention and accolades it has received. Over the years I have been on countless fishing trips in different states and countries with different captains and not one holds a candle to the experience at Bud n' Marry's. As far as the fishing is concerned, the captains do a great job putting... More

Terrific spot in Islamorada. I had a gift certificate for a full day fishing trip at the Marina. Unfortunately the winds were blowing at 20 knots out of the east and the ocean resembled a washing machine. I had been fishing on a private boat for three days and my back was shot and I was leaving for home the... More
