The Kay K IV was built in 2002. Air conditioned, well maintained and fast, the K KAY IV was customized to maximize fishability and comfort. We can easily handle up to 6 fishermen in the KAY K IV’s huge cockpit with it’s large live bait well. The experienced crew will guide you to and give you instructions on how to catch Mahi , Wahoo, Sailfish, Kingfish, Tuna and more. Do you want to fish the reef for yellowtail snapper, muttons snapper and groupers? We can do that! How about fishing for something different? Deep dropping (300ft to 600ft) for snapper, tilefish, porgies and snowy grouper; just a few of the tasty deepwater fish species that Captain Don has the equipment and the expertise to catch. Concerned about getting seasick or don’t want to get too far out to sea? Try our patch fishing trip. Lots of action, close to shore and in relatively calm water. We have a clean bathroom, comfortable seating and a large fish box. We also have a courteous, professional, and experienced crew that will make your trip truly memorable.

A must do charter fishing at it's best is on the Kay-K-1V out of Whale Harbor, Islamorada, FL. A first time for our daughter & husband from CO. Capt. Don and his first Mate Dave were exceptional. Very professional twosome, with years of experience. Our family of four had a wonderful time pulling in yellow tailed snapper, one right after... More

We headed out early, watching the sunrise from the boat. We were rocking, the seas were a little rough but it was so beautiful for this land locked girl. We were fishing for yellow tail snapper but a small shark decided to see what we had to sample also. After some pictures he went back in. Captain Don and first... More

I just got back from 2 great days of fishing on the KAY K IV with my 2 teenage sons. We caught 2 dozen keepers each day and enjoyed the time with Capt. Don and his first mate Dave. Both were fun, knowledgable and extremely helpful in making both days tremendous experiences for myself and sons. The boat is impeccable... More

We have always fished with Marathon charters and wanted to try Islamorada this time. Interviewed several captains and could tell right away Captain Don was a class act. Turned out to be a great decision. He and Dave were friendly, helpful and informative. They went the extra mile to put us on fish. Boat was immaculate and beautiful; very well... More

My son (on college break) and I went on a 1/2 day trip with Captain Don and his first mate, Dave, over the New Year's weekend and we can state categorically that it was a blast.

We visited the Florida Keys for the first time as a surprise Christmas trip for our family of four - and thought we'd try (also for the first time) a sport fishing charter. We couldn't be happier with the experience and, particularly, with Captain Don and mate, Dave. They are not only extremely experienced and knowledgeable - which provides the... More

Captain Don is an expert and his boat, the Kay K IV, is absolutely top notch. The weather was iffy for our scheduled trip, but we headed out and experienced beautiful weather and great fishing. I'm a novice fisherman (actually, woman) with only a few trips for redfish and sharks under my belt, but Don & his mate Dave were... More
