Spent an exciting day fishing on the Dirty boat, with Captain Joe and his first mate Chad. Our first time charter fishing and they made it fun and exciting for everyone. My husband asked for dolphin and thats what he got.

Capt. Joe and mate Chad are THE best charter team in Islamorada. This was our 3rd time with them and we always have a great time. We are a regular in Islamorada and only use them to charter out for the day. I can't wait until next time which should be in about 3/4 months. Look no further for a... More

My wife (her first time out) and I went fishing as 1/2 of a split charter on The Dirty Boat with Joe and Chad on June 30, 2015. The fishing wasn't great (for any of the boats) but the crew worked hard and we ended up landing four dolphin and four tuna as well as various other non-keeper fish. By... More

Capt. Joe & Chad were great, this is my second year to book the Dirty Boat for 2 full days of fishing. We had a first time offshore fisherman in the group and after landing his first fish needless to say he was hooked on deep sea fishing for life! We caught tons of fish which we will be eating...

Spent June 7-9 with Capt. Joe and assistant Chad on the Dirty Boat celebrating my birthday. I fished with Joe before and this trip was the best yet. No matter what you want to catch the Dirty Boat will put you on'em. Snapper, Dolphin (Mahi), Barracuda, Hogfish and anything else that swims in the Keys. The guys on the Dirty... More

This was our first time fishing out of the keys and since there were only 2 of us we tried to save money and Split a Charter. We were a little nervous about splitting the charter with 2 guys we didn't know, but once we pulled out we quickly realized the split was the way to go. We had awesome... More

This was definitely #1 on greatest fishing trips I've experienced. They were able to hook us on a 35lb dolphin fish that gave me the most thrilling fight I've ever had. Highly recommend The Dirty Boat for your next Islamorada fishing trip.
