Captain Joe was top notch. Mate Chad was absoluty awesome. We had an absolute blast and the chatch was excellent. Chad has great understanding of people wanting to have a good time and is more than willing to oblige. Captain Joe was injured but you would have never known it. He gave it his all the entire trip. We will... More

I cannot say enough about Capt. Joe and Mate Chad of the Dirty Boat! I took my two boys on their charter today and now have memories to last a lifetime. They were both so patient teaching my boys their trade and made sure we all had fun, and caught a lot of fish to boot. This is a top... More

We have chartered Capt. Joe's Dirty Boat a few times now, and each time was great. This time we went with Capt. Joe & 1st mate Chad, who really worked hard to teach us about fishing and get us some fish to catch. We went into the Atlantic looking for sailfish, but, instead we caught a lot of other great...

We went out on Friday the 13th to some rough seas with 22 mph winds. Although pretty rough, we had a great time. Caught a lot of yellow tails and three huge mutton snapper. Chad was a great mate and had some good jokes for the kids and taught us all a lot. Definitely recommend this boat if you're looking... More

I couldn't ask for a better charter boat or a better captain and Deck Hand Captain Joe and TJ were awesome! Both were very knowledgeable and catered to your level of experience in offshore fishing. I really liked the way they ask you what you want to catch and then they go put you on the fish. While no fishing... More

The Dirty Boat was a fantastic charter. Captain Joe and First Mate TJ were excellent guys, both extremely knowledgeable of fishing the waters of the Florida Keys. We look forward to our next trip out with them.

Joe Saba is a great captain, runs a great charter with a good mate. He always seems finds the fish you seek or advises a good alternative. We've fished with Joe on our annual trip to Islamorada, makes for a good day on the ocean with any options. This week we caught amberjacks, cero mackerels, yellowtail and a few others.

I reluctantly agreed to a fishing trip with the family on our vacation to Islamorada . After asking around and being told by several people that the dirty boat would be our best trip we booked . What an excellent choice that turned out to be. I was worried because we had several children with us . Joe Saba and... More
