We had an awesome experience with Dream Catcher Charters trying out lobstering for the first time. Our captain, JoJo, could not have been better - she spent plenty of time in the water teaching us, and then let us do our own thing once we got the hang of catching the lobsters. She allowed us to set our own schedule while still providing excellent recommendations of what to do. Once we caught more than enough lobsters, we had a little time to kill before the trip was over, so JoJo took us to a great little sand bar where we were able to relax and ask her everything we wanted to know about the Keys.

The boats were all in great condition, and this is a very organized and professional charter company with great staff (especially JoJo!). We could not have asked for a better trip and will DEFINITELY be back to go lobstering next time we are in the Keys!

We did the backcountry charter on our recent trip and it was awesome! Our captain Bryson was extremely knowledgeable professional and patient. He made it a very relaxing & fun time for us. We are by no means experts and Bryson took the time to show us the ropes. Highly recommend Dream Catcher Charters especially Bryson!

What an amazing memory. 2- first timers for lobstering, not knowing what to expect, rain on the way.... given the 50/50 rain return policy, that made our discussion to take that chance. So glad we did... an amazing experience with “Jo-Jo” as our captain and DJ, we look forward to our return in the Spring!!!

Our 50/50 policy is to put our customers in the drivers seat on days we think might be marginal weather wise or where some folks may not think its a good day. We always keep you safe but this offers our customers the chance to decide.

My family spent a week in the Keys the week of July 13th. We took 2 trips with Dream catchers. One day with captain Bryson, and one day with Captain Steve. The fishing was outstanding and the people are great. We hooked up on Four tarpon and landed one. Caught many yellowtail snappers, some jacks, barracuda and bonnethead shark. The tarpon was a bucket list item for me. Hands down the best guide service I have worked with in 40 years of fishing. One of the best days of my life. I highly recommend the dream catcher for a day on the water. Already planning for the next trip.

I cant thank Capt. Steven Lamp enough for the incredible day on the flats of Key West. Capt. Lamp has a vast knowledge of all the species that the Keys has to offer. You would be foolish to book with someone else.

Flats fishing has been a passion of mine for over 25 years. Thank you for mentioning me in your review.
