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.

Fished with Capt. Kevin back in March during what many said was the busiest couple of weeks they had ever seen. from our perspective it most certainly was the busiest we had ever seen it. After our original charter had some transmission problems prior to our scheduled trip, the Capt. made a phone call for help to a friend, Capt.... More

I had the opportunity to fish with Kevin twice this week. The first trip was with my wife, daughter (13) and her friend. Kevin did a great job with the kids and geared the trip toward making certain there was plenty of action. We caught a nice variety of yellowtail and hogfish. Kevin was great with the kids. Day two...
