My wife and I spent two days in a row with Cpt Kevin. One day deep sea fishing for tuna and the other lobstering. It was by far the highlight of our vacation. He knows where to go to catch sea creatures and when we hit a school of tuna or found a big lobster, his enthusiasm was infectious. We... More

Couldn't have asked for a more experienced, professional captain. He was very helpful and very patient allowing us to go at our own pace. It was my 10 year old daughters first time lobstering and he made her feel very comfortable and she caught lobster for the first time ever. He knows the waters very well putting us on many... More

He made sure that we were able to have lots of fun on the boat while also taking us to great spots where we were able to CATCH LOTS OF LOBSTER!!!!! We make it down to the Keys every year and make...

This was my fourth trip with Capt. Kevin. No matter what he always finds the fish or lobster no matter how much pressure has been put on fishery in Marathon. Do yourself a favor and book a trip!!

My family and I have hired Captain Kevin for the past 3 years during our visits to Hawks Cay. He is awesome and really customized our trips according to our needs since we have young kids. From snorkling with a sea turtle to catching tons of fish and even playing with our kids on the sandbar, I can't imagine hiring... More

Capt. Kevin puts 110% into making your snorkeling and fishing trips enjoyable. He knows the area and is a pleasure to spend the day with. All around great guy, good with the family, easy going and fun. We went snorkeling the first day, with visits to multiple sites, then fishing on the next trip. He even stopped on the way... More

Thanks Bill! It was a pleasure to spend 2 days with your family. This is the same energy, devotion and preparation that goes into each and every custom trip. With positive feedback like this from my customers, it won't be long before I am number 1 again for family adventures in Marathon, erasing the negative effects of the extortionists from... More

Our family has been coming to Marathon for numerous years. Fishing excursions have always been included on the itinerary. This is the second time to go out with Capt. Kevin and will be calling him again for another trip. Very knowledgeable as well as informative to help the entire family get involved and enjoy. A fantastic time had by all... More

First off- I can't imagine that there's a captain anywhere who will work as hard for you as Kevin Johnsen. We went out as a group of 5, with only one of us having any deep sea fishing experience. The day was gorgeous, but not the best for fishing (loads of scattered seaweed and very few seabirds). After a couple... More

My husband and I booked Captain Kevin for a night fishing trip in early June. I liked that he asked us what our goal was. Did we want to catch a big fish, or did we want dinner? Of course we wanted to catch a big fish, but we also wanted to be able to take some fish back home... More
