My family, consisting of my wife, two kids, and a friend, enjoyed a fantastic day on a spacious boat with comfortable seating. Throughout the entire day, we trolled the waters, consistently reeling in catches such as yellowtail, mutton snapper, and serra mackerel. Not only were they delightful to catch, but they also made for a delicious meal. The captain and mate were exceptional, contributing to an overall outstanding experience on the water.

Despite the limited success in catching fish, it turned out to be a fantastic day of fishing. The Captain exceeded our expectations, going above and beyond to make every effort in ensuring we had the best possible chance to reel in a great catch.

We had an absolutely amazing day on the water with Captain Pete and his wife during our booked 3/4 day fish and snorkel excursion. The highlight was the incredible meals we enjoyed, particularly the Cero Mackerel recommended by Captain Pete, leading us to the delightful Castaway Waterfront Restaurant in Marathon. To add to the excitement, my patient daughter Leeah successfully caught an exceptionally large Goliath Grouper. Special thanks to Captain Pete and the First Mate for ensuring everyone had a memorable experience. The snorkeling adventure at Alligator Reef was truly incredible, once we managed to get some distance from Barry the Barracuda. For my wife and three daughters (aged 12, 16, and 19), it was an experience beyond our hopes—comfortable, relaxing, and truly incredible. The boat was clean, with a private bath, A/C cabin, and an outstanding Captain and First Mate. This one-of-a-kind experience creates lifetime memories, and I highly recommend it. With such incredible people and experiences, there's no room for disappointment. Undoubtedly, the best family experience of our Florida Keys trip. Thanks again, and we look forward to the next time!

Pete and his wife are incredible! Our trip with them was absolutely fantastic. We successfully gathered plenty of bait fish, leading to numerous significant catches. I highly recommend booking with Captain Pete, as he not only took us to the perfect fishing spots but also assisted in hooking and bringing in the big catches. This team is the one you want for your fishing expedition. If we decide to go again, it will undoubtedly be with them.

Captain Pete and his wife Christy are truly fantastic individuals! They exude warmth, friendliness, and are thoroughly entertaining. We considered ourselves lucky to have not just one, but two Wahoos in the boat before 11! Although our attempt at Mahi was not as successful, we anchored up and landed some enormous yellowtail. It was an absolutely fantastic day! I strongly recommend checking them out for an unforgettable experience!

Captain Pete guided our family of five on an unforgettable fishing day in Islamorada, ensuring we returned home with dinner! Even when some spots proved unproductive, he went out of his way to locate areas where the fish were biting. Captain Pete's evident knowledge and passion for fishing showcased his dedication to sharing a delightful experience with his customers. The boat was impeccably clean, and he supplied all the necessary equipment for a enjoyable day on the water. His exceptional service and amiable demeanor truly went above and beyond. I highly recommend Captain Pete and his first mate, Christie!
