We went out with Thomas and Nick and had a blast and caught some great Mahi-Mahi! Thomas was a great captain, he put on the fish almost instantly. Nick was an amazing first mate he was working non stop because we didn't go 10 minutes without having a fish on the line! i will defiantly go back to these guys... More

I chartered the 42ft boat for my 3 teenage boys this past week and they had the best time. They were on dolphins were on quick and they brought back at least 20 good size fish....The captain, Thomas, and first mate, Nick, were the best...I would highly recommend this company to anyone coming to Marathon...Thanks for a great time....

We decided we would go fishing and chose Main Attraction because of the ratings. The price wa s a slight discount of 595 plus tip. We had a four hour trip but caught nothing but seaweed, except for a few bait sized fish. Paul tried hard, but he and the owner should not have built it up at the beginning.... More

We are sorry that these anglers did not catch a lot of fish. They did catch small dolphin which were not legal and had to let go. This happens a lot on 1/2 day charters offshore since the small fish tend to stay in the 10-14 mile offshore range which is the range our boats can travel to do 1/2... More

We have traveled to the keys for vacation for years, and usually use Main Attraction Charters. Always a good experience. Last year, we met Captain Phil, and were impressed with his knowledge and personality. This year, we made it a family experience, and once again, hooked up with Capt. Phil. The girls had the most fun because it was their... More

I chose Main Attraction Charters because of the good reviews on trip-advisor and they did not disappoint. My family had a great time fishing on the Main Attraction II with Captain Joe and mate Tom. The captain put us on the dolphin quick and Tom busted his butt to make sure all the lines were baited and in the water.... More

Main Attraction was definitely the highlight of our trip! Captain Joe and Mate Tom were incredible! Couldn't ask for a better time! Ten dolphin, 25 pounds plus cleaned perfectly and ready to eat! They were knowledgable, entertaining and friendly! My kids had a great time! They had us on fish within fifteen minutes! Non-stop reeling! So much fun! Can't wait... More

After a bad experience with lazy guides on the Seadog, we were looking for a trip that would land us some good sized fish. We went out on the Reel Attraction with captain Phil and first mate Nick. They not only got us into big fish right away, but they made sure we had a really great time. My husband... More

Thomas and Nick know how to fish. They'll take you offshore and put you right on Hog Johnson with their superior fishing abilities and second-to-none commitment to excellence. If Bill Dance and Thomas had a fish off, the result would not end in Bill's favor. Bill would probably be fired from the Outdoor Channel and "Tight Lines with Tommy" would... More

Took a 3/4 day charter with Captain Thomas and Nick, couldn't have gone better. We stopped on our way out and dropped for a big mutton snapper, then ran offshore and hauled in the mahi. Thomas put us right on the fish over and over, and Nick ran the back of the boat safely, efficiently, and most importantly with a... More

During our vacation in Key Colony, we stopped by the marina around 8 in the morning and spoke with Phil and Nick. We had plans to go on a charter but we didn't know who we wanted to go with. Phil and Nick made us feel comfortable and confident that they were the best... they were not wrong! I have... More
