Went here on Thursday August 21st 2014 for the 9:30am - 1:30pm trip. There was 4 of us and the cost is $45 per person, plus $5 for rod & reel use. We had a great time, the crew is good and will help anyone that is not use to party boat type fishing. You can reserve spots on the... More

My Dad and I went on a night fishing trip in Aug. If you are coming from above the Keys I suggest you leave earlier because sometimes traffic can get to a dead stop for no reason trying to get down there. I have seen some reviews saying that good spots on the boat were more and you had to... More

If you want to catch some fish with the kids & don't want to pay 500&+$$ for a charter boat. This is a very good alternative. We catch a nice Mangrove Snapper mainly that day. 19 of them just for me :) Crew is very helpful, they install fishing rigs, take care of your catches & mark them for you.... More

My family and I took part in the morning party boat experience. The boat was pretty packed... We did gave a few incidents if tangling lines with someone else. The Marathon Lady crew provides bait, you can rent the rods, and they help you pull off the fish you catch. It was four of us...39, 36, 8&1/2 and 7 years... More

We had a charter booked four months in advance, but upon arrival called to let them know we had arrived and were informed that his boat broke that day and wouldn't be fixed for a week. We then decided to give this head boat a shot and was a much more pleasant experience than my trip to Lake Erie last... More

My sons and nephew wanted to go fishing while we were in the Florida Keys. So we decided that a party boat might be the best way to go. We hadn't ever been on a party boat and weren't sure what to expect. From making reservations to boarding the boat, the experience was great! Scheduling and payment was easy and... More

We were recommended this charter by our resort. We chose to go out and fish the evening trip from 6pm - midnight. Between the 4 of us in our group we caught a total of 19 fish.. Yellow Tail Snapper, and several other types of fish. The captain and crew were hardworking and made sure everyone was comfortable. The crew... More

Elbow to elbow overfilled boat (and boat was not full). Caught 3 fish between 2 people. Crew did not catalog them properly so left with zero fish. Fishing spots were not good. Tourist trap and bad time overall. Positive - Crew was polite. Obviously, catching more fish would have been better but this type of operation makes me feel like... More
