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.

My third time out with Captain Joe and again we killed it. Joe worked his butt off finding the Dolphin for us as that is all we were looking for today. Kept us out later than the trip was booked for to ensure we got the experience we wanted. Great guy great crew great time. See you soon!

We can't say enough about the wonderful time we had on he Dirty Boat with Captain Joe! He was kind, courteous, and great with the four children we took with us. He is a convenient charter out of Robbie's in Islamorada. Great prices for 1/2, 3/4, or full day and discount for cash. Make sure you check him out if... More

What a tremendous trip. Capt. Joe and Chad asked us what we wanted to catch. I told them Blackfin, Mahi and some big AmberJacks. On our way out, we talked about technique, the gear and got to know all about the Dirty Boat crew. Once we watched Chad cast a net perfectly for our bait....we knew it would be a... More

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.

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
