We came back again and had yet another amazing day on the Dirty Boat. I just love watching my family having so much fun catching all the different kinds of fish and joking with the crew. Yes and the fresh fish dinner is a cherry on the pie;) Thank you Captain Joe for being so funny and patient and sharing... More

My girlfriend and I specifically came down to Islamorada for a last minute vacation to do some off shore fishing before the school / work semester started back up in Tampa the following week. After reviewing many of the charters in the area we decided to go with The Dirty Boat. Captain Joe and First Mate (FM) TJ were both... More

My son and I split a full day charter with 3 other people on 8/20/2014. We stopped to net bait fish, but the seas were calm and bait fish were not cooperating. From there, we went to search for dolphin. Capt. Joe had to go several miles out, until he found a spot where the targeted fish was suspected. In... More

This was our third time out with Capt. Joe and 1st time with his mate TJ. Like always, we had a great time. He really knows fishing. He asked us what we wanted to fish for and away we went. We caught blackfin tuna and some amberjacks. That was the first Amberjack we caught. Lots of work but lots of... More

Capt. Joe and TJ landed us on a pile if tuna, after being out maneuvered by the mahi, that were being chased and consequently partially eaten by barracuda. Dirty Boat was the only boat we saw with mahi. We did a split charter with a father son duo, from the Carolina's. It worked out fabulously. As I write this review... More

We split an offshore full-day charter with 3 other folks. Captain Joe & First Mate TJ were very experienced and knowledgeable about where to find the fish. They caught loads of bait fish early, then we headed way out to find the dolphin! We hooked up with 3 or 4 schools throughout our 10 hour day on the water. Largest... More

I think it is a shame that you would give me a "poor" review instead of working hard to get yourself more good reviews. I have never done anything to affect your business, just worked really hard to make my business the best it can be. This review is completely bogus, much your charter boat operation. I hope you can... More
