My wife and kids had been asking to go fishing, so I figured while on vacation in Marathon, we'd go. I did some research and this boat seems to be everyone's choice. I had contacted them about a week earlier asking about how kids handle the boat when it's windy, they were very honest with me, so I kept an... More

It was a first time experience for me and I loved it, even in the rain. The boat is great and the crew is very, very helpful. Always a smile on their face. I will definitely do it again next visit to the keys!

We stayed on Marathon, so we had no difficulty getting to the boat on time. We took the 4-hour morning trip to fish about 7 miles off the Florida Keys. The boat had a wonderful, helpful staff, they were able to get us to an area where there was really good fishing, and we had a terrific day on the... More

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
