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.

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

My family and i were looking for some of the world class fish that you can find in the keys and kay kiv is that boat to do it. Spent 2 days on the boat and caught wide range of fish and a few sharks, including a monster tiger shark (don't worry unlike jaws the boats plenty big). The effort... More

We moved moved to a different spot and changed tactics. My son caught a huge barracuda. What a great finish to the day. I have two kids and they were great at... More

Thank you. My wife and I booked Don on the advice of Tripadvisor and we had a fantastic early evening fishing experience. We were invited aboard the very comfortable and well maintained boat and motored to local waters. The captan and Tony the first mate know the waters well and came ready for all eventualities. Before I knew what happened,... More

We recently visited Islamorada for the first time from February 14th to the 21st. The weather was not the best, but because of Captain Don's expertise, we were still able to get out for an evening shark fishing trip. Our boys, age 23 and 19, had never before felt anything big on their lines. This time...success!! They both were fighting... More

Just went on a full day and 1/2 day trip. Great time fishing. You can tell Captain Don knows his stuff. And for first mate Tony, I've never seen anyone so excited about getting people hooked-up on the fish. Caught a bunch of mahi mahi and they kept us in the chase for hours. As for the boat, we were...

Amazing Shark and Tarpon trip with captain Don on the K Kay IV. Great, friendly captain and crew, even better fishing. My wife and 5 year old son had an unforgettable first shark and tarpon trip out of whale harbor marina... About 10 minutes off the dock we were fishing. The tide was right, the water was calm and the... More

One of the things that made it so fun was their enthusiam and excitement. They were just as excited as we were when the fish would bite. It felt more like they were part of the group of... More

Not only are Captain Don and First Mate Tony professional, but they are GREAT anglers. The Kay K is a wonderfully comfortable boat. Even in 8-10' seas, as we were. On top of that, the overall experience is a lot of fun.
