About Sea Horse Private Charters
Our friendly experienced crew will help you catch fish and have fun on a fully equipped 39 foot Harris Sport Fishing Boat with a full Tower. We accommodate up to 6 anglers with plenty of seating and two fighting chairs. We are committed to making your Sport Fishing trip as productive as possible. We search area reefs and the Gulf Stream for the best fishing opportunities available each day. Sailfish, Mahi, Tuna, Wahoo, Snapper, Amberjack, SWORD FISH, Marlin, Sharks, Cobia, and other Sport Fish are real possibilities and can be caught on the Sea Horse. We are Sport fishing and it is possible you may catch only a few fish due to adverse weather or possibly no fish in the area. We are located in Whale Harbor Marina Islamorada Florida Keys, mile marker 83.5 next to the Sea Food Buffet. Whale Harbor is a fishing destination known as the Sport Fishing Capitol of the World. We welcome novice and experienced anglers to have fun fishing on the Sea Horse. We encourage you to ask us questions about Sport fishing and the Florida Keys!

We fished with Captain Rick and mate Tommy on October 25th. This was a charter for 5 ladies of varying experience. These guys were great! The seas were "sporty" with some swells up to 10 feet. Rick expertly handled the boat and was able to put us on fish. Tommy never stopped moving, keeping up with the rigs, working us as a team when the bite was on and explaining rigs, knots and technique (we were there to fish and learn!). We ended up having a great day, despite the weather! We hit our max on tuna, caught some nice dolphin and a wahoo. I will definitely fish with Seahorse Charters again!!

Rick is a great fisherman. It was a slow day for everyone, but Rick and his mate never gave up. We ended up limiting on Mahi. Very fun time.

Let me start by saying this review is about Sea Horse Charters, Captain Rick and First Mate Tommy. It is not about or related to the fish bite, which should never be the basis for a charter review (provided the captain and crew are giving it their all, which these guys certainly did). From the first phone call to the goodbye and thank you, Sea Horse was top notch. Captain Rick is a man who wants his clients to enjoy a safe and exciting fishing experience, not to just take your money. Tommy the First Mate works his tail off and uses his 54 years of knowledge to bring you to the fish. It was clear that our trip was planned during a decidedly tough stretch of weather for the area. Captain Rick went to great pains to ensure I understood the conditions, what they meant, and the uncertainty of fishing as a result. Both on the phone and in person, he encouraged me to be sure my family and I knew what we could be getting into and how difficult the seas were. In the end, I chose to press on because I wanted an offshore experience in the Keys and boy did I get one! The seas were rough, the wind was howling, the bite was weak at best. Two of us puked, the third kept her eyes closed. Tommy was incredibly gentle and attentive to my daughter and wife, and Johnny on the spot with whatever needs I had. He also maintained the rigs as we cruised for sailfish and mackerel. Yes, we caught a few smallish fish, enough for lunch for three, but never could hook up with anything terribly exciting. The seas were simply not having it. From ten foot swells, to a howling wind, the going was rough. Captain Rick and Tommy did their utmost to find the fish and it was clear they wanted to find them as badly as us, if not more so. Fishing in inclement weather is a crap shoot and this time we came up short, but not due to the lack of care, attention and professionalism of the crew of the Sea Horse. When I return to Islamorada, I will be sure to fish with Sea Horse Charters.

Spoke to many cpts. Before choosing Rick. Rick and his mate Tommy knew their stuff and made it happen. I reeled in my sailfish thanks to these guys knowing right where he was. Rough day on the water with storms in area but these guys made it fun and comfortable for me and family. We'll be back to fish with them again and again!

We booked a charter this past Saturday (Oct,3rd) for our dad's birthday and man was it a GREAT time! Capt. Rick and Tommy we're awesome and are very knowledgable. If you'r looking to get some real fishing in you gotta go with Sea Horse. We ended our charter with way more fish than expected and it was overall a memorable experience. Book your trip and enjoy true Keys fishing at its finest.
