Don't waste your time looking elsewhere...Go REEL ADVENTURES all the way! My husband and I took my father and two boys (12 & 13) out on our first chartered fishing trip with Captain Kevin. Unfortunately, everyone had been telling us to just skip the charter as the fishing conditions as of late had been just terrible, but at the last... More

Last September my then-boyfriend introduced me to Captain Kevin and we went for an amazing fishing and lobstering trip. A little over a year later my now fiancé and I had yet another great day of fishing (limiting out in under two hours!!), snorkeling, and I even got to play and swim as a mermaid. Couldn't have asked for a... More

Great offshore trip with captain Kevin. He put us on fish quick and we pulled in tuna until our arms were sore. I really wanted to pull in a dolphin but we couldn't find them. Fun trip make sure you are prepared to work hard and learn fast to make the most out of your trip.

Captain Rich is a wonderful host. We spent a second day in a week with him Fishing. First time fishing for the kids, 20 and 22 years old, made memories that will bring them back to Keys for more. Rich did a super job teaching and coaching us into a successful day on the water.

We have been out with captain Kevin as a family 3 years ago. One day of tuna fishing and one day of lobstering. Both were awesome. So hubby and I took a little trip down to fish in June 2016, we booked Captain Kevin for 2 days ago. He worked so hard to try to get us out to catch... More

Captain Kevin provides all you need and seems to have a wealth of experience and knowledge. We used him for our first lobstering trip and he went above and beyond to be helpful...He's definitely all business and get the job done. He's polite but not especially friendly or patient. Definitely respectful, nice --and provides good clean fun and if you... More

I want everybody to read this as it is critical to the success of my business. This trip was booked and all communication was through Andrew's secretary. I thoroughly explained my concerns for his trip to her, where my participants must have a working understanding of what we are doing and meet basic minimum requirements to be successful. I prepare...

We took a quick trip to the keys with our kids. We had been fishing a few times before, but had never caught anything. I searched reviews to find a sure thing, and we found it! We met Kevin early at the dock and he was ready to go. We got out to the spot and he was ready to... More

Our family has been out with Capt Kevin several times and he always produces fish as well as a great time. We caught our limit in a short period of time in not great conditions and taught my wife to clean fish. All in all a great fishing experience. Highly recommended for all of those that want to catch fish.
