I have hired many charters for company events, family get-togethers, and outings, and Discovery Blue Ventures stands head and shoulders above the rest. First and foremost, Mick and his crew consistently deliver successful fishing trips. Whether you're targeting Mahi, Tuna, African Pompano, Swordfish, Grouper, Snapper, spearfishing, or lobstering, they set you up for success. Their deep knowledge of the fisheries and strong connections ensure they catch fish even on slow days when others don't. More importantly, they are a joy to be around—personable, great with kids, and engaging with any audience. Their passion for what they do is evident in every aspect of their charters. On numerous occasions, they have even joined us for dinner, taking us by boat to fantastic cook-your-catch spots on the water. Discovery's boat is impeccable, reflecting the pride they take in their business and the care they show for their vessels. Whenever we're in the Keys, they are our go-to charter, and I wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone, regardless of experience level. Thanks, Mick, Justin, and Garrett, for the countless experiences and memories, with more to come. You guys rock!

Mick and his crew are outstanding—professional and fun! We've gone on several trips with them, and each time they've put us on an abundance of fish, including tuna, mahi, grouper, snapper, and amberjack. We even caught a swordfish, which I now have mounted in my house. Mick is always willing to customize the trip to your needs, whether it's offshore, inshore, or reef fishing. Discovery Blue Ventures does it all, even taking you out for family snorkeling. Discovery Blue Ventures always delivers!

Discovery Blue Ventures offers the complete package for a charter experience. Captain Mick and his crew excel at making everyone feel at ease, creating an atmosphere reminiscent of a day out with friends. While safety is their top priority, they go above and beyond to ensure an exceptional trip that exceeds expectations. They skillfully balance providing assistance—such as baiting hooks or helping with casting for those less experienced—and giving space to let you handle the line independently. Their expertise and instructional skills shine, teaching the best techniques in a remarkably short time. It's clear that their work is driven by passion, not just duty. During our charter, we caught a variety of keepers, bringing home plenty of fish to share. They even filleted the fish for us and recommended local restaurants that would cook our fresh catch. Captain Mick and his crew provided an amazing experience, ideal for any group, including families. We will definitely be chartering with them again. Thank you!

Discovery Blue Rocks!! Mick and his crew are truly the best. I've taken several trips with them and always come back with more than just great memories. They are extremely knowledgeable about ocean life and the local waters. Mick is one of the funniest captains I’ve ever met, making the trip as entertaining as it is productive. The fun and enjoyment of the journey rival the fishing experience itself. Personally, I wouldn’t charter with anyone other than Mick!

This was my fourth trip with Discovery Blue, and Captain Mick and his crew continue to prove they are the best in the business. On this trip, we hooked into some giant African Pompano, along with numerous Tuna and Mahi. Mick and his crew are incredibly knowledgeable and consistently put us on the fish. I won’t ever use another charter.
