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.

While visiting Maine, we booked a trip with Captain Ben. Coming from Florida, we weren’t sure what to expect, however, it was an incredible day. The scenery was absolutely gorgeous. Throughout the day we saw beautiful historic lighthouses and we were lucky enough to see a whale. The main reason for the charter was to experience a different type of... More

The folks at Kristin K Charters run a first class operation. Captain Ben is as good as they come. He works hard, Knows the area. But most importantly is great company on the water. A charter with Kristin K Charters is must for anyone looking to land the big one!

Captain Ben is an awesome captain. He really goes above and beyond to help make the charter special. We went on a shark fishing charter on August 1st. It was very foggy the day we went out and numerous other charters were cancelled. Captain Ben still took us out and we caught BIG sharks. Such a wonderful experience to share... More

Simply put, my shark fishing adventure was one of the best experiences of my entire life. My friends will all say the same. Captain Ben is an extraordinary Captain. He is friendly, knowledgeable, and has a 6th sense in finding fish. We had an enjoyable ride out to sea in his well maintained and very capable boat. Soon after putting... More

Captain Ben is not only a great fisherman and knows a lot about sharks and the industry, but he is fun to hang out with as well. Very professional, very good sense of humor, I had a blast! We caught two large blue sharks. It was also a big learning experience because I have never fished deep sea or for... More
