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.

Captain Dan & Chief Mate, Tony, created the perfect deep-sea fishing experience for our family of 6. They were professional, thoughtful & helpful throughout our 4-hour excursion. Having them fillet our 37 Yellowtail catch was the cherry on the top of a thrilling morning. They even packaged it for traveling (set some aside for eating lunch) & directed us to... More

Being from Long Island, NY, my sons were used to fishing for hours without even getting a bite. Capt.

The best day ever! Captain Don and Mate Tony gave us an exciting trip from early morning to late afternoon. We caught all kinds of fish...mahi, yellow fin, snapper, a huge baracuda, and even a huge cobia! Mate Tony recommended a local restaurant that would serve our catch. We cannot wait to return.

I just came back from Florida Keys and had a wonderful fishing trip with Captain Don. The Captain and the mate were wonderful and personable. They knew exactly where to go to catch the type of fish we wanted. We caught our limit of yellow tail snappers within the first hour. We then went looking for large mutton snappers in... More

All of the reviews are correct, this is a must do while in the keys! We took our two teenage daughters and our 6 year old son out shark fishing with Captain Don & Tony. They were AWESOME! We aren't fishermen by any means and they both made us feel like pro's by the end of the trip. Tony was... More

One thing about Isla Morada that I've always noticed: There are lots of charter boats from which to choose! The Kay K IV and Captain Don Chittick were recommended to us by some other folks who'd been out with him and they really steered us right. Here are the details that mattered to the four of us (two adult couples):... More
