About Florida Keys Reel Adventures
I am Capt. Kevin Johnsen owner/operator of FKRA. I am a 33 plus year Middle Keys resident and have a great understanding of the desires and needs of my customers. My business caters to nearly everybody by building custom trips for all interests and skill levels. My goal is to provide a rewarding and successful day on the water and to ensure priceless memories within a safe and comfortable environment. I build lasting relationships and earn repeat customers with my unique style and easy going personality. The ocean is the reason we live here and I offer you affordable access to our waters from my custom 31' center console. My boat is a stable platform that outperforms most boats in its class, providing a quiet superior ride and custom set up. I specialize in reef fishing, offshore, shark, tarpon, electric deep drop and night fishing trips. Additionally I offer lobstering, spear fishing, snorkeling, sand bar and mermaid trips. All trips are private and completely customized for you.

Kevin is so knowledgeable about the area. My friends and I have chartered with him twice, both times we caught a bunch of fish! The boat is awesome, lots of room & you can’t beat the Beautiful Blue Waters of the Keys! Can wait for Captain Kevin and Florida Keys Reel Adventures to show us another amazing Adventure!! 5 star!

Booked a trip with Captain Kevin for reef fishing for our family of 6 including two kids age 8 and 13. This was our first charter we’ve ever done. From the first step on the boat, we knew Kevin meant business and takes pride in what he does. He does come off a bit brash, but its only because he wants to give the most ideal experience he can. Try to over look it and realize this guy is working his butt off to make sure you go home with dinner. As a mom I would have appreciated a bit more patience from Kevin, but the boys didn't seem to preoccupied with his constructive critism and were having a great time reeling in fish. My 8 year old never wants to hold a fish, but for Kevin, he was excited and willing to shove his finger in the gills! My 5 tips for a succesful experience: 1. Show up a few minutes early. 2. Do what your told and be ready to work! 3. If you typically freshwater fish, forget what you know for a day. It will be all wrong. And he’ll call you out on it. 4. Be up front about what you expect. 5. Take photos! All in all, a half day trip with Kevin sent us home with 33 yellowtail snappers today and we couldn’t be happier!!

We had a more than excellent trip with Captain Kevin Johnsen! And would do it all over again! Celebrated my birthday and he went over and beyond to make this experience of catching for the first time Mahi Mahi so exciting!!! My husband and I had so much fun! He had us nonstop fishing! We also caught a snowy grouper, zero mackarel and snapper!! We would do this trip again in a heartbeat! Thank you! CAPTAIN for a real adventure! Luis n Maria
