Reef Runner Charters runs year-round fishing trips out of Whale Harbor Marina, in the sportfishing capital of the world — Islamorada. Whether you’re looking for juicy table fare around the reefs and rocky bottoms or want to go further offshore for trophy gamefish, Captain Paul Johnson and crew will give you a memorable fishing trip!

Captain Paul has been fishing his whole life. He grew up around the water and has a knack for finding the fish. He knows waters surrounding Islamorada like the back of his hand, and he's always working hard to put you on fish. Nothing makes Captain Paul happier than seeing smiling faces holding nice fish and knowing he's helped create memories that will last a lifetime.

Fishing with Reef Runner Charters means you'll be guided to some of the best fishing in the world by one of the most knowledgeable and capable crews in the Florida Keys. Relish the first strike weather it be dolphin, tuna, wahoo, kingfish, or one of the more exotic billfish such as sailfish or marlin that frequent these waters. Bottom fishing yields tasty catches like yellowtail and mutton snapper as well as grouper.

Captain Paul operates a 40’ custom Key West offshore sportfishing boat. Powered by a 430HP Cummins engine and outfitted with top-tier electronic equipment, you'll have a smooth, safe, and comfortable ride. Captain Paul provides high-quality rods, reels, and tackle, as well as live bait for up to 6 anglers on his charters.
