Went out shark fishing with Capt. Kevin today (7/20/2016) and had a fantastic time! There were 4 of us on the boat. We must have caught and released over 15 sharks ranging all different sizes. Capt. Kevin was unbelievable from rigging our lines to directing us on how to reel them in. It was probably the most fun I have... More

I definately recommend booking a charter with Kevin and Florida Keys Reel Adventures. We had a great morning of fishing and seeing the abundant marine life around Marathon. He listened to us and catered the trip to our interests while utilizing his experience, energy, and enthusiasm to provide a very memorable day.

Captain Kevin was great with our family of five. Our children's ages are 12, 11, and 5 and they thoroughly enjoyed fishing. Kevin was patient with them and was an excellent teacher. We caught more Red Snapper and Yellow Tail then we could eat! It was a thoroughly enjoyable trip. We would definitely recommend Kevin~

The 3 of us fished with Kevin June 13th and I must say he really knows how to catch the fish. 35 yellow tails on our 4hr trip with 2 fishing was great. He has a smooth riding boat and good fishing gear I would highly recommend him if your looking to catch fish. I will be booking with him... More

fantastic trip. It was a family trip and he spent time educating my children on proper technique. He put us right on the fish. He is a expert at his trade. It was well worth the money. I would recommend to anyone.

Capt. Kevin is awesome! He knows his stuff and put us on great fishing spots. Even though the dolphin bite has been slow for the season, we still landed 6 dolphin with Capt. Kevin. In addition to the dolphin, we landed numerous tuna (one being a 24 pounder!) and a snowy grouper. If you are looking for a quality fishing... More

While visiting the Florida Keys, I struck gold by booking with Captain Kevin. We caught tons of tuna and had a great deep sea boating experience. I had so much fun, I booked another day and had an awesome spear fishing and snorkeling adventure. If you want to have a great time, I seriously recommend Florida Keys Reel Adventures!!
