Chartered a full day of fishing with Capt. Joe and the Dirty Boat out of Islamorada. We couldn't have asked for a better trip! The captain and mate (Chad) worked really hard to give us the best day of fishing. They are highly recommended. Plus, Robbie's cooked our fresh catch and it was delicious! We will definitely be returning!

I signed up for the dirty boat because I've heard from several friends that they are the best! Even though it was mini season we had no problem getting lobster. Chad and Joe were incredibly fun and professional. Already signed up for next year :) thanks again!!

Wife and I decided to grab a few days in Islamorada and wanted to do a half day split charter. I sent emails to a number of the top rated captains as well as the booking office at Holiday Isle and Whale Harbor marinas. To everyone's credit, they all replied but unfortunately a half day split charter is not easy... More

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.

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...
