My daughter just graduated HS and as a gift we took her and her friend to the keys for some R&R. I had read about backcountry fishing and wanted to give it a try. By luck, we were able to book a last-minute half-day trip with Bamboo Charters with Eric as our guide. Because of having to dodge thunderstorms on... More

My fiancé and I went out for a trip with Captain Matt and had the most amazing time! Not only did we catch dinner, but we had a great time barracuda fishing as well. Matt knows where to go and there's no doubt that you'll have a great time getting there! The facilities at the Marina are top notch as... More

First off he is extremely knowledgeable and personable. Charter captains with his experience can be salty and tired but not Capt Matt. Enthusiastic and fun with my 11 yr old boy and the knowledge of the Islamorada back country - Everglades National Park was second to none. Book your trip with bamboo charters you won't be disappointed. Oh yeah and... More

We had THE BEST time with Captain Matt. First, let me say how great and communicative Ana was for scheduling and planning. We are rookies when it comes to fishing, and ok snorkelers. I had lots of questions which Ana was so helpful with, and on the boat, Matt was a real expert. He really was hands on...Matt knows so... More

The first saltwater fishing trip for my wife Evelyn - she caught a lot of fish (snapper and trout). Captain Matt was a great host and patient guide. We were on fish the entire time out! The boat is as smooth riding and quiet as a boat can be. It was just a great fun day with Bamboo Charters -... More

We booked the backcountry trip but got rained out. Matt had a half day trip available two days later so we did that and fished Flamingo. Found a spot that was epic with LOTS of tarpon rolling and reds tailing, but couldn't get a bite. Neither could the other boats nearby. Went to a second spot and did well, but... More

Captain Matt was attentive and patient to our needs during our 3 hour family fishing charter. Our kids are 12, 9 and 6, and Matt catered to all of their needs the entire time. The kids loved it, and he went out of his way to share in their excitement when they caught barracudas. He also taught them how to... More

My wife and I were heading to the Keys for a short vacation and I had to jump at the opportunity to get some fishing in. Not knowing any of the guides in the Islamorada area, I relied on the internet for help and found Bamboo Charters. Their TripAdvisor feedback was excellent and gave me confidence to book a full...

My son had fishing on his must do list on or recent trip to Key Largo. We booked a last minute trip with Bamboo Charters @ mm 80.5. We booked the shortest trip for 4 hours, and fished the backwaters on the Gulf side. We hooked fish from the 1st stop to the last stop. We went from catfish, sea... More
