Wife and I were vacationing in the Keys and wanted to try Sea Fishing but not wanting to pay the typical $500 plus to go on the multitude of different fishing excursions. We opted for the Marathon Lady due to personal recommendations and Trip Advisor Reviews. We went of the morning half day excursion and had a wonderful time. there... More

I had never been fishing but my daughter wanted to go so off we went. Agree with others that if you are prone to sea/motion sickness you should take something before heading out. Also, dress expecting everything will smell like fish by the end. We showed up and met new people before even leaving dock. The crew worked really hard... More

2 adults and 2 kids off to fish for the morning. We are inexperienced fisherpeople but the staff were super helpful and there for you every step of the way. They helped bait the rod, untangle the kids lines, and cut your catch off your line. Steve and Josh were awesome as was Cap't George! We caught lots of fish!!... More

I think the Marathon Lady is the only party boat in town. There were about 30 people on board. We fished out at Sombrero Reef. Seemed like everyone was catching one after another but most fish were too small to keep. Even the ones that were big enough to keep were pretty small. I did catch a really pretty blue... More

Enjoyable experience. The mates and captain are very people oriented. Captain does do his best to guarantee a catch, however, the catch were mostly small grunts and an occasional legal sized snappers. The down side is that the fishing rods provided aren't too great and everyone fishes in the same spot so the variety of fish isn't too great. If... More

We are not fishermen, so I wanted to go out on a boat for a few hours with my thirteen year old son & actually catch some fish. This trip was great value, the staff (Josh & John) were extremely friendly & helpful guys & the captain was a very nice man. Between us we caught 12 fish which the... More

This is our second year using Marathon Lady. We've been on fiur fishing trips with them. Without question, they are the hardest working crew we have seen. They find the fish.

First, I think my experience on this trip was a communications issue and is mostly on me for not getting details and specifics... We have been on party boats before and not had issues. This trip, we were told it would be "a little bumpy", but I didn't realize what that was. I think most people caught some fish, (it... More

First time on Marathon lady. Been on a few other boats but this group beats them all hands down. They are friendly and work hard. Boat is clean and well maintained. Efficient crew. The captain moved us several times to stay on fish. Thanks to the whole crew. We'll be back next time we're in the Keys.

I fish very regularly and have gone on many fishing charters. This group was amazing. The mates did an excellent job helping with all of our needs (hooks. Snags. Tangled) I had my 11 year old son with me and the weather/seas were rough. We caught several keepers and a red grouper that we painfully had to watch swim away... More
