We took a day charter for the first time in the Keys. Captain Joe and Hunter asked us what kind of experience we were looking for and we told him we would like to go for a mixed bag of good eating fish. We started out getting bait which was an experience in itself. Besides seeing someone throw a cast... More

My husband and I came to the Keys to visit my son and spent a day fishing on 'The Dirty Boat'. It was wonderful! We caught quite a variety of fish. I truly enjoyed it and would go out with them again. We went out to catch fish for eating but would love to go out again after game fish.

Took a four hour reef tour with these guys. Once we got out to the destination, the fish were everywhere and the crew was super enthusiastic about getting fish on our lines. We ended up with two nice cero mackerels and a handful of yellowtails. Would have been nice to catch a few more fish, but that's why they call... More

Thank you for taking the time to write your review of the DIRTY BOAT. I'm glad you enjoyed your day and I'm glad we were able to catch the fish you had asked for specifically, Cero Mackerel and Snapper. I thought we had more than a handful of Yellowtail Snapper, but that's probably because I was the one stuck filleting... More

My brother, dad, and I chartered the Dirty Boat and had a day we will never forget on it. Not only did we have a great day fishing with the highlight being hooking up with three sailfish at once and landing two of three but Captain Joe and mate Hunter were friendly, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic making the day even better....

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.

The reviews here are pretty thorough in summing up exactly what's great about Joe and Hunter. But I'd like to underscore one quality in particular that they possess, and that I find rare in a charter crew: unbridled enthusiasm. At times I thought they were more hell bent on catching fish than we were. They were relentless in their pursuit... More

Great trip. Captain and first mate were tireless in their pursuit of finding fish for the customers. Their hustle was amazing. They sprinted to every need. The captain made sure he knew what the customers wanted out of the trip and went out of his way to deliver. The trip was 8 hours but we were on the water for... More
