I have NEVER wrote a review but I feel like this one deserves one. We booked a half day trip fishing with my husband and our 13 and 11 yr old daughters. Kevin the captain was very organized, patient, and helpful. We found out the captiain lived on the same street we live on, way up in Illinois( small world) so we had plenty to talk about. He even helped us find some places that would cook our fish for us. We had SO much fish we gave a bag to our captain. Our daughters weren’t all to excited about us booking this trip at first but both had a great time. In fact our oldest told us “ I thought I was going to have to lie and tell you we had a great time but I don’t because that was way AWESOME”...lol

There were 6 of us on this trip deep sea fishing. It was a first for a couple of us. Kevin did a great job keeping us busy and teaching us what to do. We caught a ton of yellowfin tuna and a few bar jack. Kevin gave us some tips on how to eat the bar jack. It was all delicious. We would definitely do this again.

Had a geat morning with Captain Kevin. He does a great job explaining the techniques and tactics used for catching the target species. You can tell he wants his customers to put fish in the box, and that we did! I will definitely go out with Capt Kevin when I make it back to the keys.

Booked a half day charter with Captain Kevin Johnsen for my daughter and I, and had an awesome trip with lots of fish. Captain Kevin knew exactly where the fish were and how to catch em. He was great in explaining the proper tactics on both presentation and what to due once hooked up. He was very professional and a super fun, easy going guy. My daughter’s wrist hurt from all the fish she reeled in, and Kevin was working hard to bait our hooks and handle our fish. We had several delicious meals thanks to Kevin’s fillets. I would highly recommend Florida Keys Reel Adventures and Captain Kevin Johnsen.

First trip to the Keys or Marathon for fishing. Kevin was one of the best guides we've ever had fishing.... anywhere! He really loves the sport and makes it enjoyable and educational as well!
