Keep your eye out for Groupon specials! Take some Dramamine with you, too.

I didn't have much luck, but the person I went with caught a lot of fish. A few others on the boat caught BIG fish (someone caught a giant grouper, I believe). Another person caught some type of spiked, poisonous (scorpionfish?) species, and that was interesting to see.

I would have liked some instruction on deep-sea fishing. I was admittedly not very skilled, and the crew were not helpful- not much instruction, even when I asked for advice on casting and reeling. They mostly re-baited and gave very general advice and then walked away to help others. I think they would benefit from more crew to guide those who are newer to fishing.

Still, this is a killer deal due to the great price for the time spent on the water, especially if you have some prior deep-sea fishing experience.

Fantastic!!!! First Jamie (owner) kept the boat waiting for us just so we could make the trip. That's rare for any fishing charter. The crew was unbelievable. The captain and mate worked great together to put us on a lot of big fish. Ray (mate) was very patient with me when I repeatedly "bird nested" my reel and kept trying to catch real estate haha (coral, rocks, etc.). The captain was extremely skilled and very nice. Overall an absolutely amazing experience. Great crew, great hospitality, and a great time. Best charter I've been on hands down. Thank you guys!

“won't ever use this boat in the future”
Reviewed November 5, 2013

was supposed to go fishing Nov 3, 2013 but it was cancelled due to high winds. No one called us, we showed up at 9:30 as instructed but no one was around and had paid $10 for a cab ride to the boat. I called them and was told of the cancellation, she told me "I was just going to make some calls" 1/2 hour prior to leaving? seriously????? she didn't know this ahead of tiime??? what a bunch of crap! this is not how you do buisiness!

“"Fun fishing"”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

We joined the group on Oct. 1st and also had a great time fishing. Ray was absolutely wonderful and attentive to everyone. I did catch a black grouper but it wasn't big enough so I had to throw him back - but not before pictures were taken. The captain will take you to different spots and we all caught plenty of fish and were happy to share with each other at the end of the day. We will definitely book this trip again when we return to Key West, FL.

“Great Day Fishing!”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

Went out hoping to at least catch a grouper and low and behold the first fish I caught was a (keeper) grouper. Jared the mate made me feel relaxed since it was the first time fishing in Key West. I asked a lot of questions and he was was willing to answer all my questions. I also was losing a lot of hooks from getting caught on the bottom and without any attitude, Jared was right there to get me hooked up and fishing again. The experience on the Gulfstream IV was very enjoyable and if I'm in the Key West area again I will defiantly book online again with the Gulfstream IV. It was an enjoyable fishing trip. Thank you Jared for making me feel like I was a regular on the Gulfstream IV. Trust me, the Capt. will get you to a spot where you will catch fish!
