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

My husband, Michael, and I took our second trip out with Dream Catcher Charters just this past Wednesday, August 17. When we planned our trip to Key West, we knew there had to be another fishing trip and we knew exactly with who; Capt. Hugh. Such a cool, down to earth guy and he knows what he's doing. We went...

Had a great time! Captain Hugh was laid back, visited many spots, and we caught a lot of lobster! The boat was really nice, and booking was a painless process.

My son and I took our first charter together with Dream Catcher. Capt John, aka Merlin not only gave us a shark fishing trip of a lifetime but most importantly the knowledge and education he provided us was second to none! His patience and knowledge of the surrounding was top notch! I would highly suggest booking your charter with him!... More

We were scheduled for one day and loved it so much we went back the next day. We had 2 amazing captains getting us on the fish! We had Nick "Hollywood" on day 1 and John H. "Merlin" on day 2. They both were educated on the fish, mangroves, and wildlife. This trip was our first on the Keys and... More

We chartered a day with Dream Catchers and had a wonderful experience and a clean, smooth boat. Caught barracuda, jacks, ladyfish, grunts for the heck of it. Snorkeled on small coral heads and wandered around an area 35 miles offshore learning about the place with the Ice Man. Highly recommended for an easy leisurely day on the water.

My Husband and I had our first ever fishing charter with Dream Catchers. Our captain was Brian AKA (Goose) and he was outstanding, not only did we catch numerous different kinds of fish, including, a shark and lots of Barracudas. Brian was very knowledgeable about the variety of fish we caught, where and what areas to catch them. Brian not... More

A Coast Guard buddy of mine & I chartered w/ Dream Catcher during a Key West port call. We had Nick "Hollywood" as our guide & he was fantastic! We chartered a six hour backwater trip & Hollywood got us into: Tarpon, Snapper, some barracuda, bonnet head shark, and then we even went back towards the Key West turning basin... More
