Capt. Joe and first mate, Kit were really great with me and my family. My children really wanted to catch sportfish, but I'm a seasoned angler and I know how hard chartering really is. Joe and crew were great, They made it a point to catch a few tuna to get the momentum going and then settled in for the... More

My mom, brother and I went on a full day split charter with Capt. Joe and the first mate Kitt. The weather was horrible and stormy that day so Joe talked to us about other options and we decided to go reef fishing instead of offshore (which would be a lot tougher). We started off trying to catch some Yellowtail... More

Joe and Kit were great to our family! They both seemed to be having a great time. They were patient with our rookies, and had our daughter a fishing pro! I would definitely recommend their charter for a great time fishing the Keys!

We've been out twice now on Dirty Boat, under vastly different sea conditions. Joe and Kit, both certified sea captains, put us on the fish in rough seas one day and calm seas another: dolphin, snapper, grouper, tuna and HUGE amberjack. These guys quickly seemed like old friends. They know their stuff. And they worked hard to make our trips... More

This was my 4th time fishing with Captain Joe and the first time with mate Kitt. 6 of us (2 families) took a 3/4 day charter in hope of getting Mahi Mahi and we were not disappointed! All of us caught fish and Joe and Kitt were fantastic. They're honest guys, knowledgeable fisherman, and run an great charter. I will... More

Captain Joe and his mate Kit are professionals. The Dirty Boat is a awesome machine, full bar, 2 bathrooms (perfect for women if deciding factor).My wife was very thankful for the bathrooms! This being her first saltwater trip and catching her first saltwater fish made the day. She was smiling from ear to ear all day. Perfect day on the... More

The waves were high and it started a bit chilly, but nevertheless we had a great time aboard the "Dirty Boat." The crew was very professional yet knew how to have fun even when the fish weren't biting. I would highly recommend them when visiting the Keys.

It was a chilly 60 degrees with 20 mph winds. However, the captain and first mate kept hopes high with great attitude and jokes. Honestly the weather was not cooperating. Swells were high and it was hard to even stand. Regardless of what mother earth threw at us... in the end he put us on fish! We had a great... More

My family chartered the Dirty Boat on Thanksgiving morning 2015. The wife, myself, and my 8 & 10 yr old daughters wanted to enjoy some fishing but on the way out to sea the waves started really kicking up (was 2-4 ft when we left and got at 6-8 ft about a 30 minutes later). The waves were just to... More
