Captain Kevin is the BEST! We had a group of six on the boat, and he worked his butt off to show us a great time! He definitely knows what he's doing and had super valuable information -- not to mention just being a cool dude. By the end of the day, we had caught a total of 29 fish!... More

Thanks so much for taking the time to tell others of your experience with me! Fewer of my customers choose to give back to me despite a very high percentage of my first time customers coming from this site. I appreciate the review and hope to get you back on the water for another adventure! Kevin More

He did an outstanding job and worked hard to make sure we had a good experience. He was personable and fun. Our trip was better than we could have imagined.

It was a pleasure fishing with your group! Offshore fishing is challenging and it is rewarding to see my customers rise to the challenges and catch tons of fish!! Thanks for the review!! Kevin More

captain Kevin was great ! He helped you out and taught valuable information and techniques to catch maximum amount of fish ! In poor conditions we still managed to catch around 20 fish between 4 people on a half day trip! Enough fish to feed our party of 9 people twice with large portions ! All down to captain Kevin's...

What a great day with captain Kevin! Yellow tail fishing, snorkeling, sandbar for lunch, scavenger for star fish, and some great snapper fishing. Cleaned everything and was great with our kids (who can be a little annoying). Fish was great baked on the grill! Thanks for an awesome day!

Kevin, What a great time, perfect trip with the family and could not have asked for a better mentor. It was my first time spearfishing I felt confident and comfortable, this is because of your leadership. And who would believe 15 sharks on the last day, what a way to bring it home, thank you. I had my 73 year... More

Capt. Kevin really showed us a great time out on the water. We fished, snorkeled and spearfished. We caught a 34lb grouper, tile fish & speared some hogfish. He knows all of the great spots! He was a great Captain and an even better teacher! He helped me feel comfortable in the water and helped me shoot my first hogfish.... More

My son and I fished with Kevin earlier this year in March and had a fantastic time. Kevin is a great guide, very helpful with technique for all levels of anglers. Next time we are in Marathon, we'll be booking another trip.
