My husband and I were really looking forward to back country fishing and our experience with Captain Garth certainly didn't disappoint. We found him very fun and friendly; the fact that he's incredibly knowledgeable about the biology and ecology of the different species of fish was a huge bonus to us. He got us on fish with different techniques and locations, which is exactly how we love to fish. We had an awesome time and will go through Dream Catcher Charters next time we visit.

Rented the 36ft boat for our family for the day with Captain Rob an ex military guy. We went out to several areas to fish and everyone on the boat was successful in catching fish. Our Captain was 100% phenomenal in that he was attentive to everyone on the boat, all the way down to my 10 year old! Safety was 1st and foremost. The boat was perfect, super clean and it’s the one time my wife and I actually got to reminisce a little because of the music he played on the awesome JL Audio system he had from various fishing areas. The final hour of the trip, We snorkeled with some of the prettiest fish I have seen. This includes snorkeling in Hawaii & St Thomas. Once finished, he cleaned the fish and we watched the various colored iguanas eat the scraps. Of course we had to buy a red and a blue iguana when we got home. Captain Rob called a local dive restaurant to prepare the fish which was cooked thee different ways and each was delicious! Just a nice chilled restaurant where you could kickback and relax! We will be going back in the next month or so and will be requesting Captain Rob again along with Dream Catchers. I honestly don’t see how it could of been done any better! We always rent a private boat no matter where we travel just to get away. This trip was by far the best! Thank you Captain Rob!

My Fiancé and I recently visited Key West and I knew I wanted to fish but had to clue who to go with or what type of fishing I wanted to do. After reading some reviews I decided to try out Backcountry. We went out and caught a ton of fish and enjoyed every second of it. After the back country I knew I had to fish again while we were down in Key West so I looked around for a different type of fishing and came across shark fishing charters by Dream Catcher.Our guide was Brandon and he was fantastic. Very laid back and go with the flow. He was very knowledgeable and patient. We went out and caught some bait right away and he hooked us into some big barracuda. After that we set out for some sharks. I was a little hesitant we were going to catch any at first cause it started off slow but soon enough we had sharks swimming all around our boat. We hooked into roughly 8 sharks but only managed to land 4. Experience of a lifetime, and if you can get yourself a charter with Brandon you won’t be let down. We will be back. -Collin and Kaylee

We took an afternoon shark fishing charter with Captain Bryson. This is the third year in a row that we have been out with Bryson. Not only is he a very knowledgeable fisherman but he’s also a great guy. We always catch fish. But the most important thing is we always have fun. My brother and I went back and forth and decided that after further review we’re giving Bryson 20 stars. We come to Key West every year and we will continue to use Dream Catcher and Bryson. See you next year.

We had a six hour snorkel-fishing charter this past week. I'm giving five stars despite not having the ultimate snorkeling experience. The weather and water has been unsettled this last week or so. The fishing, though, was just great! We fished a couple different locations, and caught a variety of fish. The pinnacle of the trip was my husband reeling in a big ol' lemon shark with Karl's enthusiastic encouragement and advice. This trip was the highlight of our vacation!
