We wanted to fish but didn't want to spend a lot of money. This trip on the marathon lady was perfect. I was worried that with 50 people on board, the fishing would not be fun but was pleasantly surprised. It cost $50 per person which included bait and tackle. Beers sold on board were cheap but you can also... More

My wife & I decided to go reef fishing. She had never gone fishing before, but was willing to try, and I've never gone fishing on the sea... It was a lot of fun; we caught mostly grunts & my wife caught a pogie. She also caught a remora which was thrown back and I caught a nice mullet (which... More

Family of 4 with 10 & 12 year old kids went out the other day on the Marathon Lady...we had a great time & caught lots of fish. While we caught mostly grunts, we did land some yellow tail...I learned after that the experienced guys use different bait than the crew provides to catch mostly yellow tails. I will definitely...

I've been on several party fishing boats all around Florida and I must say this was the best trip ever. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful. There were 5 of us in our group and we caught over 75 fish total. My 4 year old niece was on the boat with us and she had a great... More

We went out on a trip on 2/9/15, our first fishing trip experience down in the Keys. Prior to booking, I looked at available boats in the area and read prior reviewer's comments. We drove by the day before and decided to stop by the small building in front of the docking area to ask questions. (Helpful Hint- Do yourself,... More

My son and I took the Marathon Lady party boat and I have to say I was not impressed with the experience. First of all the seas were rougher than expected which resulted in my son and a few others in becoming sea sick. I know that can happen, however, one of the sick was an elderly woman who did...

Marathon Lady is a party boat for fishing with family and friends. The boat is located on the ocean side (south) in Marathon just west of the Vaca cut bridge. The captain and crew work hard to assure a fun trip for everyone. A great way to spend the day on the water and catch your dinner for the evening.... More

We recently took a morning trip on the Marathon Lady. We called in advance and made reservations on the stern (highly recommend!!). There were about 40-50 people on the boat and the captain and mates were outstanding. They managed all the tangled lines, fish removal, and questions with great service. They even did almost a "show and tell" with the... More

An excellent company - boat was clean (in fact crew scrubbed it as we returned from our afternoon fishing). Everyone was very pleasant and helpful. No, you don't have to pay for bait. Rod and reel rental is $5.00, if you can't afford that you have no business going out fishing on a boat! The guides/attendants were very helpful and... More
