Captain Pepe had a medical emergency in Miami and hooked us up with Captain Ange who was utterly amazing. My husband caught his first ever Tarpon and had three or four other hookups.

I have fished offshore since I was a young boy. Captain Pepe is the best guide I have ever been with. His concern is for your safety first, putting you on fish that you want, and customer service. I will never fish with another guide in Key West other than Pepe. He is a consummate professional, and family man. You... More

I'm not a fishing lady but went out with my family just for the boat ride and to get a suntan. As soon as the boys started to catch fish Pepe handed me a rod and told me to reel! I caught my first fish! He made fishing easy and he was very patient with me! He also took time... More

Love to fish with Captain Pepe! (Book him ahead of time, as he is so popular that you may miss out!) Pepe always puts us on the fish and we have a lot of laughs. Just an all-around great guy, and unbelievable fisherman! A must if you love to fish in Key West!
