Wife and I booked a 4 hour backcountry trip with Dreamcatchers with the snorkeling option. Wife was not sure of the whole fishing thing and wanted the snorkeling option just in case. Needless to say she fished the whole time and had a blast. We had the pleasure of Captain John, aka Cowboy. He listened to our desires and did... More

We were in Key West and called Dream Catchers after our plans to go to the Dry Tortugas fell through. Happily they had a spot open for a bay trip the next day. Our guide John (a/k/a Cowboy to the other guides) did a great job and was a real pleasure. The 24' Yellowfin we went out in was perhaps... More

Went on a 4 hour fish/snorkel combo as my girlfriend wanted to snorkel and I wanted to fish. We got Nick "Hollywood" as our guide. I can't say enough good things about him. My girlfriend was not a big "fishing" person before this trip. Nick was awesome teaching and helping her. She loved it so much she forgot about snorkeling!!... More

We visited Key West as part of a celebration of my 60th birthday. I had long wanted to try fishing in these waters but had never had the chance. Our guide was Captain John (Merlin) H. He was excellent! I had no experience at all so he was faced with teaching a complete rookie with zero skill. He was patient... More

We had an excellent time and were successful, thanks to our knowledgeable and fun Captain. We has never been Lobstering before and did not know what to expect. We signed up for the half day charter and came back happy as clams with our 6 lobster in tow. My husband and kids and I had a great time and we... More

We had a boat all to ourselves. 4 people on the 24' boat was very comfortable. Captain Hugh listened to what we wanted to do and did just that. We started catching 2 - 3 pounders and then moved on to try for bigger and better things. Eventually caught 2 sharks and had a great time. Facility was neat and... More

We went out with Captain Hugh who did a fantastic job. He knew his way around and where the fish would be. Extremely knowledgable and made sure we had a great experience. Very friendly and laid back. All around great time and would definitely recommend him and DreamCatcher charters. Also Jennifer helped with the booking and made it super simple.

Arrived & my guide was waiting- by a immaculate 26 foot boat. After a safety briefing we head off. Caught plenty of different types of fish & saw even more in the crystal clear waters. Brian - friendly laid back Fla State grad, made the morning memorable and relaxing. You want to fish, use these guys!

We had a great time! Weather was a little bit rainy at times but did not have any impact on our trip. "Iceman" our captain did a great job coaching us on catching chum and catching the sharks. He let us do everything, which was awesome! Would definitely recommend this to anyone who loves fishing and wants to see sharks... More
