Our family booked this charter for 4 for our sons 14th birthday. Captain Rich and hist first mate Paul were extremely helpful. They did warn us from the beginning not much was biting the previous day. Still my son had a wonderful time and was even able to catch us dinner.

Booked a last minute charter for myself and 5 friends while down here for vacation and was not disappointed. 6 amateur fishermen were made to feel like pros. Each of us was able to reel in at least 1 fish and we caught a bunch of different types. Yellowtail, Grouper, Sharks, Mackerel and a few Barracuda. The captain did his best to move us around and put us on fish when some spots were slow and the first mate did great keeping lines in the water for us. Will absolutely book with them again if I’m ever down here.

You and your group made our job easy with your great attitude and enthusiasm! One of the best parts of my job is when we get folks like you on board. You made it fun for us too! Hope you had a great fish dinner and Please come back if you get to KW again! Capt. Rich

Captain Houde is the best guy on the dock. He is willing to burn the fuel necessary to find the fish. I always do full days so I am guaranteed to bring fish home. Never skunked. Southbound is reliable and always there. He will vary the trip to whatever you want. Reef, wreck or trolling. Sail, Shark, yellowtail.....whatever. We have done them all.

I brought my two teenage sons to Key West for their first chartered fishing trip and we couldn't be happier with Captain Rich and crew! What an awesome trip! I highly recommend Southbound Charters to anyone wanting the best fishing experience ever! Looking forward to another trip soon!!!

We could not have asked for a better trip. Captain Richard and his First Mate Ben, worked very hard to make sure we had a great time. We booked the package that included 2 full days of fishing and three nights in a cabin. The cabin was close to the marina, comfortable, and perfect for us. We caught tons of fish - Cero Mackrel, King Mackrel, Yellow Jack, Yellowtail Snapper, and Barracuda. We saw manatees, dolphin Nd hammerhead shark too! Ben cleaned and filet all the fish, organized them by type, and packed them on ice for us. He even set aside a special bag of filets for us to take to a local restaurant so they could cook it up for dinner. Richard let us borrow his vacuum sealer so we could get the fish prepared to take home. I could go on and on! We will definitely be back!
