We had a wonderful time at the Dirty Boat! Joe and Kit were very friendly, funny and knowledgeable. They provided us with a full day of fun and excitement. We had a great time fishing and even stopped to do some snorkeling. As a woman, I was happy with the convenience of having a bathroom in the boat. Everyone had... More

Chartered 12/28/2016. I live in Miami and chartered the boat to take my parents out while they were visiting for the holidays. Capt Joe and Mate Kit were amazing. I've chartered quite a few boats for my family before in West Palm, Fort Lauderdale, and Miami and this is BY FAR the best experience we have had. We caught tons... More

Had a great experience with the whole family. Captain Joe & Kit were very attentive to what we set out to accomplish. Perfect day out for us. Kit kept my kid entertained the entire trip. He's hilarious! Joe was extremely knowledgeable and was a pleasure conversing with him. I highly recommend the Dirty Boat.

Joe and Kit provided a great experience, in spite of some of the worst water and worst weather we've ever experienced in the Keys. My wife, her parents, our daughter and I had a marvelous time and we caught a variety of fish including snapper and tuna. Breaking a heavy rod and losing a rig to something too big to... More

Came down to the Florida keys and booked a charter with the dirty boat with my friends and young kids. These guys put us on fish and taught us all a little bit about fishing in the keys. Also provided us with some ICE COLD drinks on a hot summer day! Would definitely do it again!

Was kind of randomly stopped by Captain Joe at the dock at Robbie's in Islamorada where I assumed I was gonna walk onto their party boat (which none of us knew at the time was already sold out), but Joe explained to me that two people canceled on his private charter and asked if I wanted to partake in a...

Ive been out with captain Joe on the dirty boat a handful of times. The man knows what he's doing! Consistently able to deliver targeted species, and he's always got some tricks up his sleeve if the bight slows down. Not to mention he's personable and always has a professional crew. From putting us on double header 20lb dolphin to... More

Went to the keys for our honeymoon. The wife had never been on a open water fishing charter. They took us out to the reef to catch my favorite dish's fish. Yellowtail Snapper. I was impressed with their technique to catch them. Would definitely book another charter with John & Kit!
