Aside from fishing trips, the company facilitates dive trips, bay cruises, weekly trips to the Keys, and a yacht charter, so you can take off on your own personal aquatic adventure.

Mark the shark and ryan are the best crew i have ever been sea fishing with. First trip we caught a great white 1.5 miles off miami beach 2nd trip we caught a large sail fish and a tiger shark. Then i went on a 3rd trip and ask mark if possible could we go for a hammer head and yes we caught a small hamer. Thanks Mark and Ryan for a Great 50th birtday treat.

We are currently on vacation at the marriott courtyard hotel on 39street known locally as the Cadillac hotel. From when you arrive at the front door you are greeted with smiles and hello mam have a good day right through to the front desk who too are really very approachable and helpful. The bar staff at the tiki bar Chris, Sal and Ashleigh are absolutely superb there service and advise is spot on, also Marcus on the beach is very tentative and friendly and full of humour. Staying in room 626 the cleaning staff on the 6th floor are some of the best we have had and we have travelled to many countries over the years.Having been out here to celebrate my husbands 50th his dream was to fish for shark, we hooked up with mark the shark of which we have been currently on 2 charters who sails put of Biscayne Bay the first trip we managed to hook the great white shark, the second a Tiger shark and sail fish, we are arranging to go again one more time before we have to fly home, which is such a shame as we have both totally enjoyed the entire experience if holidaying in Miami which we recommend to any one that would like to visit the paradise island. Big thank you goes out to Mark the shark and his crew Ryan and Victor, and of course the courtyard Marriott hotel (Cadillac) 39th street miami beach from Paul and Jen

We spent two days fishing with Mark the Shark's Monster Fishing. The crew was awesome and very helpful. We did not catch any shark but we both caught some beautiful sailfish and a trophy wahoo as well as a few other species. While Mark spent a lot of time on the phone and instagram his 1st mate, Bryan, was very helpful and entertaining. We had a great trip and it was lots of fun.

2nd time going, and had another great time aboard Striker 1. By far the highlight of the weekend spent in SOBE. As always, Mark guided us towards the big ones, and we all left reeling in a couple whoppers . Looking forward to getting back in the spring.

Went to sea with Mark the Shark and his crew of Ryan and Victor did a fantastic job! Our group caught a shark, barracuda and some other kind of fish I can't recall... Amberjack? I caught a nice sailfish! Looking forward to heading back out when I get to Florida again. I went as a "single" and was in a group of three others and we all had a great time.
