First time in the Keys and I was blown away. Talk about having a Captain who not only has 30 years of experience, but is very professional and makes you feel comfortable. I never went fishing and was a little intimidated, but Captain Matt was with me every step of the way and I caught 7 fish that day! Will... More

I've gone out with Bamboo Charters several times now, and with a few different captains. Every trip has been amazing. My last trip was with Captain Matt as he hosted 5 of us in total. If you're thinking of booking a charter there are a few things I think everyone should consider: -Ana is easy to communicate with and always... More

My boyfriend and his Son have been fishing with Captain Keith before. They had a great time. So this time I joined them. I loved it! I have only been fishing once before. The Boat Captain was super nice, patient & helpful. The weather was great. We caught blue runner, lady fish, trout, catfish, mackeral, shark and mangrove snapper. I... More

Thank you for your review! Capt Keith enjoys what he does and it shows. Taking families like yours out on the water is a great way to spend the day at work, catching fish and showing people the environment here in the Keys is a blast. We look forward to seeing you again soon. More

My teenage son and I have previously fished with Bamboo Charters during the summer months and had an incredible time. This time, we wanted to try the fishing during cooler weather and invite my girlfriend along (limited fishing experience). Captain Matt, Captain Ana and our guide, Captain Keith, made the experience awesome again! The minute that you arrive at their... More

We loved our keys vacation all except for this. We had a lousy time. The captain was not helpful or nice and acted like he didn't want to be fishing at this time. Him and the owner were not willing to make things right after the bad experience. Been on many charters and always had a good time before this... More

Our approach is to do all that we can to assure that you have the best experience possible. Capt. Eric told you of the current... More

I'm glad you enjoyed your adventure, that Tiger shark is amazing catch! Finding them in such shallow water is fantastic as you get to really see their stripes and their shear size. Capt Keith enjoys sharking and loves showing off the waters of the Everglades National Park. Thank you for fishing with us! More

A big THANKS to Matt and Eric for making our first night in Islamorada, and our first back country fishing trip, memorable!! We caught several sea trout, Eric prepped them for us to take down the street to have cooked for lunch (Lazy Day style w/Jalepeno....YUM). We saw a dolphin and manatee during the trip, which made it even more... More

There is nothing better than a lunch or dinner of fresh fish that you caught only hours earlier. There are so many great fish that are available out on the water and many more super restaurants where you can have them prepared! Thanks for your business and feedback. More

We had such a great time with Captain Eric. We told him we wanted to catch a big shark and he did just that. Took us to a spot where we landed 4 huge Lemon Sharks. I will highly recommend Bamboo Charters to everyone. I cant wait to book another trip with these guys!!!

We love putting clients on fast action with huge fish and the size, variety and ferocity of the sharks in our area is amazing. Capt Eric loves what he does and it shows everyday. Thank you for recommending our charter service. More

We had the best time fishing with Bamboo Charters and Captain Eric! Caught some Triple Tail, Snapper just to name a couple. The BEST was catching 4 Lemon Shark which ranged from approx. 150lbs. To 300lbs. Captain Eric made sure we had a great time! Cannot wait to head back and fish with this fabulous group!

Such an awesome day with captain Keith! We caught tons of fish in the backcountry! He put us on trout, Jack, catfish, and blue runners. Highlight of the day was our spinner shark catch! Dolphins were playful today and Keith was very accommodating! Would definitely come back and recommend!!
