Captain Ben was by far the best captain we have met and we had a great time he promised us a shark and he definitely delivered. Our first shark was at the boat 5 mins after we dropped bait in, although we lost that fish we soon had another shark sitting and i hooked onto a beautiful mako shark and... More

Great trip with Capt. Ben. Came all the way from CA and although the weather wasn't ideal Capt. Ben had all the right equipment and experience to get us where we needed to go. Landed a ton of fish with multiple occasions of double hook-ups. Look forward to going out with him again and would recommend him for anglers of... More

Would recommend Kristin K to anybody that I know coming to the area. Captain Ben was very knowledgeable and accommodating making sure we had fun, were comfortable, and caught fish. Even though the weather wasn't the most ideal he was able to adjust to make sure we had the best day we could.

It's not too often you get to plan a day away with some high school buddies...especially when the majority of us have kids under the the age of 5. Some of us live in Mass., but we made the trip up to Maine to catch up and do what we love to do. Spend the day on the water to... More

If you're looking for some stripers and blues, look no further than Kristin K Charters. From the beginning, Capt Ben shows his skills. He knows where the fish are, what time they come through and how to get live Mackerel on 5 at a time. That was worth the money alone! The boat is smooth and Capt Ben's skills are... More

While fishing for Striped Bass, my wife hooked a 100+ pound Sturgeon. As the monster ran and ran, Captain Ben's skills were apparent as he carefully maneuvered the Kristin K backwards to chase down the fish and not break the line. After over a half hour of fighting, Katie tired Sturge out and he came up to the boat. We... More

While down in the Keys this March, we went out on a charter fishing trip with Captain Ben Gardner. We left with the sun rising in the distance and the excitement of a great day with friends ahead of us. It was a beautiful day filled with a boat full of fish. I even caught a Hammer head shark!!!! Captain... More

It didn't take long to realize that Captain Ben knows how to put you on fish. After we set up to fish, other captains were calling him on the radio saying they haven't had any action yet, and had been out for an hour and a half. Within 20 minutes the first shark was on, and it never stopped. We... More

4 of my kids and I had Captain Ben as our Guide on a fishing trip out of Marathon Key Florida in March. He was incredible. We had nearly constant action catching Spanish Mackerel, King Fish and Sharks. I would highly recommend him, he was great with the kids.
